Multibrand Celebrate Independents Appliance Delivery and Installation Rebate

Offer Expires: 6/10/2021 to 6/19/2021 Must be postmarked by: 7/19/2021

Receive a $100 delivery and installation rebate with purchase of qualifying Electrolux or Frigidaire appliance valued $999 and up. Rebate form must be postmarked by 7/19/2021.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis.

great little dishwasher!

melbee72 4/20/2021

While the top rack is oddly 'laid out', this DW fits a lot and I like it overall. I bought it 2 months ago, and so far so good! I mostly use the eco-wash setting, and it does a really good job - and I don't typically pre-rinse. Silly complaint, but I wish the utensil basket wasn't so far back - hard to get to when already loaded and you wanna add a last minute spoon ;) But overall, it's a good little addition to kitchen - easy to use and cute :)

Great compact dishwasher for a tight space and small household

Ryan625 4/13/2021

After 8 years of hand washing I was ready to have a dishwasher but when I purchased my first home there was no space already. This compact dishwasher fit perfectly in a cabinet, after a little remodel. After removing the door of the existing cabinet, two shelves, and the kickplate, the install was easy. The instructions are straightforward and walk you through every step if you have an existing opening. I'm happy with the operation of the dishwasher as it's fairly quiet and easy to use. My only issue is in drying. Even with the heated-dry setting the dishes are not 100% ready to put away after a cycle. This is definitely not something to deter me from recommending this dishwasher to anyone in a 1-2 person household.

1stdish 3/18/2021

Bought this about a month ago. Was a little nervous if this would be noisy or not... so quiet! LOVE! This may be an 18 incher but does such a great job. Actually holds quite a bit, especially if you load it the way they recommend. I am very happy with my purchase.

The features

JPorter 2/16/2021

I bought this dishwasher about a month ago and installed myself. There wasn't a dishwasher in the kitchen before, and the instructions were very easy to understand for installation. There's not just one feature to start with very quiet, the different wash times are awesome. If it's not full just set it to 1 hr wash. If it's full run heavy wash, 5 total differant wash cycles. Its was worth the money no doubt.

We bought a home with a small kitchen and no dishwasher. This was our solution! It was incredibly easy do install, even for the do-it-yourselfer! The online instructions enabled me to prep the opening while it was on order. The racks are arranged perfectly to maximize the available space. Our dishes come out perfectly clean every time. We are very pleased!

Still waiting for a working dishwasher...

Dan1000 10/20/2020

The dishwasher was giving a leaking error message and wouldn't run even though there was no leaking evident outside the unit or at any of the hookups so this is internal or an improper error message. Either way it is not usable. Called the seller and having to wait more than two weeks for a repairman. The drain hose was also kinked right out of the box but is not leaking so appears OK.

Very Quiet

Stephen in Maine 10/2/2020

Although our household is only two, we wanted a small dishwasher in our new kitchen for occasional entertaining. This dishwasher works well for that purpose and accommodated cabinetry next to it that's more functional than a 24 inch dishwasher would have allowed. the wash cycle is longer than our old one, but it is VERY quiet and not annoying in any way. We are both satisfied and would recommend it to others.

I have had small dishwashers and this washer is perfect in many ways for the size and shape of our kitchen. It is small, flat profile, cleans very well, and is SILENT! The unit has such a quiet motor that a few times I didn't even know it was on when I was in an adjacent room.

Runs very quietly. Extended run time over Frigidaire replaced. Evidently this unit is supposed to have the door extend about one and one-half inches from cabinet front. We wanted the door to be flush with the cabinet front so we made the revision shown in the pictures.

AmyB090909 4/24/2020

Bought this in December of 2019, it never worked. Thankfully I bought the warranty plan and it was also under the manufacturer's warranty. Had to buy another one then wait to get reimbursed :(-terrible way to execute a warranty plan. When the second one arrived it was dented. Finally, when the 3rd one arrived, it worked. Works well, but spending 3 month ironing it all out was awful!

Fabster 4/18/2020

We did an upgrade from pretty old dishwasher and the difference definitively shows. Leaves dishes sparking clean and dried even without the heat option turned on. Only con is that it seems to use too much resources on the 1-hour + modes. Also, PRO TIP: Use half of a tablet. It's enough for this washer.

Small, but seems efficient...

Katrynova 4/6/2020

I have recently moved back into my condo 6 months after lightning hit. It takes a bit of time getting used to less space than I had with my standard sized one. However, it seems to be working well. I'm curious why there is a setting for 2.5 hour cycle [think that is right] that showed up at first usage. Needless to say, I found the 1 hr cycle quickly enough!

replacement for older Frigidaire

jdw1 3/2/2020

I bought this after the old one (2006 vintage) died just after Christmas. My only complaint in the buying process is that it cost more than the equivalent 24" models. How come the smaller one costs more??? The biggest problem is that it doesn't dry dishes well. After running the dishes are still damp and there is water on the door and sides of the dishwasher. I am using rinse aid and heated dry per the instructions.

I am very pleased with this dishwasher. It is quiet, reliable and items s come out sparkling clean. Even items that I thought had permanent stains, came out looking like new. It's a smaller model and it fits into my small country home perfectly. I've been running it every day since it was installed and never had any problem. I recommend this dishwasher to anyone wanting a reliable and space efficient product.
