Summary: `I originally purchased this dishwasher on 12/13/2009. This was a new model and appeared to be a great value. Boy was I wrong! Over two years later this machine has been replaced once and I am working on repairs/replacement for the replacement model. The machine (both of them) had malfunctioning soap doors and would let the soap out too late. The soap would be all over the dishes.
Pros: nice look
Cons: Low quality, Not durable, louder w/ time, doesn't clean, leaves film, bad odor, replaced once
Summary: I had a builder build my house and this was the dishwasher they have placed in the house. I am on my 3rd dishwasher and I have only been in my home 2 months. 1st- Dishwasher leaked at the bottom onto the tile floor. Leaks about a 1-1 1/2 cups of water while running. This started after I was in the house about 2 weeks. 2nd- The gasket came completely out along with some plastic clips to result in leaking.
Summary: Bought this model from Lowe's; loved the way it looked, but looks can be deceiving. Never really has done a good job of getting dishes clean -- and I darned near wash the dishes before I put them in the dishwasher. Two biggest complaints: NOISY!!! Oh-my-gosh-I-can't-even-talk-on-the-phone-in-the-same-room noisy. Grinding, humming noisy. This is partly because we must install the dishwasher in the lowest setting on its feet, and the motor actually sits ON THE FLOOR.
Summary: This has been a terrible dishwasher. We had the repairman out 3 times within the first year due to how poorly our dishwasher performed. Our dishes always had food left on them even after washing with hot water, rinse agent and using a water softner. At the end of warranty we were so upset with the product (because now it was getting really loud) that we had the serviceman come out 1 more time and found out we needed a new motor.
Summary: I read everything and thought this one is it, more trouble than it's worth. Doesn't wash the dishes good they are cloudy... I gave it 2 months (that was too long) NEVER dried the dishes and tried all cycles.. My daughter n law has the same dishwasher and hers don't dry either. They come out wet even if you let them set all day, water everywhere. Don't buy. Worse dishwasher I have ever had, am taking it back tomorrow!
Summary: Poorly designed. We've replaced the electrical panel twice now. The next time it dies (and it's starting to get silly again), we're going to get rid of it. It's a great looking low profile dishwasher - exactly what I wanted. Love the rack configuration, like the size. The only noise I hear from it - under a granite countertop and installed on ceramic tile floor - is the water running into it or draining out of it - so the sound I'm hearing is really in the sink, not the...
Cons: Low quality, Not durable, multiple repair, design flaw
Summary: Touch panel and control panel officially done after only 3 years. Although the touch panel was acting crazy long before it went up. You would think you started the dishwasher to find that it didn't turn on. Replacement of these parts is close to what the dishwasher cost. Customer service lousy!!! If you already have one save yourself the stress of calling.
Summary: Junk, junk, junk. Avoid this thing like the plauge. It was the day befor thanksgiving and we were rushed to replace our broken dishwasher so we didn't read any reviews. Should have. This thing was great the first two weeks then started making intermitten noises. Now it sounds like aircraft landing in our kitchen. Grinding, howling, banging, etc. Some nice features, but NOT WORTH the trouble or headache.
Summary: Steam vents are in poor location and too small causing steam to enter electrical components and buttons will no longer work and unit reads error. No fix offered by fridgidare. Don't just take my word for it. Google it and you'll see this complaint repeated over and over.
I should've done better research before purchasing

Summary: First time appliance purchases, and I wouldn't recommend this product. Had it installed and it leaked immediately, first time running. The leak was on the right side, by the door. Also noticed 2 "after parts" that looked like bite wings from a dentist office, and those were not pieces included on the booklet listing. To me, it appears the plastic, bite wing, looking pieces were an afterthought due to so many complaints and issues with leaking.
