Excerpt: My kitchen is pretty small, and unless I went with a major remodel, I had to stick to an 18" dishwasher if I wanted to have one installed. I've been using this model for a few weeks, and really like it. It's surprisingly quiet--my plumber remarked that many dishwashers have only a spray-on layer of sound insulation, while the Frigidaire is wrapped with actual padded insulation. My dishes are clean, and the stainless steel interior always looks good.
Excerpt: This new unit was to replace our old dishwasher, which also was a Frigidaire 18". I changed out myself, was very easy, per instructions. We used the old one for many years and have loved it. That is why we bought another Frigidaire, Quality - quality!!!! The 18" model is perfect for two people.
Summary: I bought this dishwasher to fit into the condo that I have. It is very quiet and cleans well. It does not dry as well as a larger dishwasher, but it does have a heat drying function unlike other dishwashers this size so the dishes are mostly dry. I just leave the door open a bit and they dry just fine.
