Comment:
Terrible design. Top rack blocks the soap dispenser from opening fully in either the high or low position. In high position there is insufficient room for tall glasses on top - upper sprayer hits glasses. In low position there is insufficient room for standard dinner plates on the bottom - sprayer hanging from top rack hits plates. Calling appliance store to uninstall and replace with better designed unit.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I bought this dishwasher in May of 2012. Before the first year ended the touch pad had to be replaced. Starting in February 2014, the machine will not turn on. The touch pad controls light up as if to start the wash, but then just turn off and the machine will not turn on. My attempt to reset by turning off the power for a while was unsuccessful. Frigidaire offered to pay for any replacement parts but I would have to pay for the labor, which makes the machine not worth repairing. It did not even last two years. <br /> The last dishwasher I had, less expensive than this one,was a Maytag.It lasted nine years, never needed a repair except that I had the drain cleaned twice.<br /> Let the Buyer Beware.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
I am not usually leaving a review about the products that I have purchased. But this one I felt obligated to leave a message for future buyers. DO NOT BUY THIS DISHWASHER. Compared to other brand dishwashers, this was the cheapiest built-in stainless dishwasher which was the main reason that I purchased this- the look. VERY BAD CHOICES. After 10-month use, it started to leak. I should've called 1-year warranty call. But with careful use, I was kind of able to handle. But now the control panel is giving error message and blinking all elements. I just made Frigidaire customer service. Because I have owned it for 1 year and 15 days, I need to pay for fix which might be cost more than $300. I am planning to buy a new one. I will never buy a product from Frigidaire.
