Comment:
JUNK. WASTE OF MONEY. Does not clean good even after running for an hour. Inside seal falls out. Door squeaks. I have bought lower line washers that have worked much better with no problems. But the wife wanted this one. JUNK

Comment:
The dishwasher came with the house we bought in May 2014. I checked the previous owner's records, & it was installed in Sep 2012. We are a family of 4 who eat at home almost every night, and we load up the dishwasher daily. The first thing we noticed was that the control panel is on the top edge of the door, so when you close the door, it is hidden. You first push the buttons for the cycles you want, press Start and close the door. This is a bit awkward. Second, the Normal wash cycle is very long, 99 minutes. Third, the dry cycle doesn't dry very well, and if you use Quick Wash, which is shorter, it doesn't dry at all. Fourth, the steam vent runs from the top of the door down to the base of the dishwasher and out. I suspect this is not very effective. <br /><br />After 2 months of heavy use, the dishwasher quit working in the middle of a cycle; there was an Er message on the panel, which I Googled, but it just means Error. We opened it up and let it dry out a bit. Then we were able to get it to drain, restarted it, and it ran for a while and quit again. We turned a hair dryer on the steam vent and the hole where the latch goes, and then the dishwasher was able to complete a cycle. I suspect moisture is building up somewhere, perhaps in the control panel. Now several settings on the control panel don't work, including the quick clean, energy saver, wash pressure, wash temp, and dry buttons.<br /><br />I will never buy a Frigidaire dishwasher.

Broke within a few months and now has same problem. The error message is a reoccurring problem. I will buy a new one ASAP as the repair cost is prohibitive. So many folks are having this problem and manufacturer will not make good on it. DO NOT BUY!!!!
