Comment:
I purchased this machine last spring. After 4 months the control panel died. I spent nearly 4 months fighting with the appliance repair company servicing the warranty and waiting for the part. Finally the company replaced the machine as a good will gesture as I had waited so long. Well, four months into the new machine's life the control panel on this one has died. Do not purchase this machine no matter how great a sale there may be.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Four months after the warranty, and the control board at the top shorted out with a puff of smoke and a pop. A call to a service center told us that the part is $180 to replace, then with labor it would be better to just get a new dishwasher. We also had problems earlier with the dishwasher not draining completely several times over the first year. The repair technician told us that over the last two years, both Frigidaire and GE started using a different motor for the drain and that their overall quality has gone downhill in the past two years.<br /><br />This dishwasher was included with our new home, else we would not have chosen this model. We are very disappointed that we have to replace it after barely more than a year.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

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
