About - Frigidaire Gallery FGHD2465N[F]

The Frigidaire Gallery FGHD2465N[F] is part of the dishwasher test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, dishwasher models like the Gallery FGHD2465N[F] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Washing:
Assessed by running the normal or equivalent cycle to clean a full load--10 place settings of very dirty dishes that were scraped but not rinsed. We examine the dishes and glassware for residual food after cleaning.

Drying:
Drying is our assessment of how thoroughly a model dries plastic items, the most stubborn in any load. We evaluate drying performance using the same cycle we use for our Washing test. As directed by manufacturers, we use rinse aid in every load.

Energy use:
For a normal cycle. The largest portion is needed for heating water, both at the water heater and in the machine.

Comment:
I bought this from Sears (never again) and it has been a nightmare since day 1. Today, we had a repairman come out and say that it would be 350 to fix. What a joke. Stay away from this model. Actually, it ruined me with Frigidaire. We've had it for a little over a year.

Comment:
I recently moved into a house I renovated. I bought this dishwasher for my new kitchen. It has not worked well once since I got it. Dishes are never clean or dry. They often are covered with food particles that are dried on. I even washed some clean dishes and they came out dirty with dried on food. The cycle is long and even when u empty it right away the dishes never feel hot. We have had it serviced three times and the serviceman has basically said its a piece of junk. He has multiple calls about this dishwasher all for the issues. We have a warranty but u need to go thru 3 service calls before they will do anything. I am tired of living with dirty dishes. What would this company do if someone got sick! I hope they are prepared for a lawsuit if that happens! Can u say negligence!!
How long have you owned it:

I have owned this product for 18 months and it has broken down twice. The Manufacturer doesn't stand by the product unless you are under warranty. Stay away from this product line.
