Comment:
Actually love this washer, super quite, does a great job washing but the delayed start stopped working...we bought it new a little over a year ago and right at the one year mark the delayed start stopped working! I read many of the reviews about problems although Frigidaire does have some good reviews. All our appliances are Gallery or the Professional level and we like then, but just seems ridiculous that a feature like this shouldn't stop working. Our Maytag had this same feature and it worked for over 10 years!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
We use this dishwasher for about two mo. out of the year in our FL condo. When it is on, you can't hear it at all. Very quiet.<br />But, loading is awkward because the tray is very low to the floor and the controls are obscured by the counter edge when lid is closed. Small things, but annoying.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Replaced a 15 year old dishwasher with this one and haven't had a problem with it. Had it a little over a year now. Quiet, cleans well, guess the biggest problem would be it doesn't dry extremely well unless you use the Sahara setting.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
