Comment:
After owning this appliance for less than a week, it was NOT FUNCTIONAL. It averages down time approximately every two months. And once broken, it takes 2-3 weeks to have repaired. <br /><br />Issues have been varied. Listing only the top three: <br />Excessive leaking twice because of a faulty seal<br />Arm on bottom disconnecting from dishwasher<br />Mother board equivalent going out twice leaving dishwasher non-functional. <br /><br />When I called to file the last claim under the warranty, the Frigidaire representative stated that I really needed to buy their extended warranty because their products really don't work well outside of the warranty period. Interesting. Can you imagine how much fun this appliance is going to be for the rest of its Frigidaire life?? <br /><br />Within a week of buying the extended warranty, I had another breakdown. When I called the service center, they stated that I had not paid for the extended warranty even though I was able to provide the Extended Service Agreement Contract Number as well as the credit card used AND date of purchase. I had to go up the chain of command 5 levels and was transferred twice and called back three times to get the issue resolved. It took 2 days for them to verify I had paid. Meanwhile, I still was without a functioning dishwasher.<br /><br />My Frigidaire is broken again for the last 8 days and the serviceman left telling me he would need to order a part and he'd see me next week.<br /><br />I signed up for Consumer Reports today because I am buying another dishwasher and don't want to go through this again. What an unbelievable hassle dealing with Frigidaire has been.

Comment:
I hate this dishwasher more than any appliance I've every owned. In just over 1 year the racks are rusting and the countdown and clean indicator lights don't work anymore. Its not very quite and the bottom rack doesn't roll smoothly. I will never buy another dishwasher from Frigidaire.

Water doesn't reach the top rack and leaves film. Also the soap dispenser is left with caked soap in it. A repair man came and supposedly fixed it, but it still doesn't wash dishes.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
