Electrolux/Frigidaire Summer Best For Less Kitchen Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 7/23/2020 to 8/9/2020 Must be postmarked by: 9/9/2020

Receive up to a $500 rebate with purchase of 2 or more qualifying Electrolux or Frigidaire Appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 9/9/2020.

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. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Very dissatisfied

Happyno1 7/3/2020

In less than a month the dishwasher is leaking, even when it is not in use. I called Service from July 1 and they cannot send someone before July 9. I am so scared of water damage to the unit below me

Perfect small dishwasher

Tmholl 6/3/2020

Bought this for a small cottage and so happy I did. The unit is compact and holds more dishes than you imagine it would. It is quiet as well.

Fabulous appliance

Asherdumort 5/15/2020

I'm SO happy I bought this unit. Installation was easy and quick. It really gets the dishes and pots clean and I haven't yet had to use the "heavy wash" feature. Definitely recommend the product

Dead on Arrival!

Common Problem 4/1/2020

I bought this over a month ago. It was delivered on March 10 and today is April 1st. I have had two repair visits and it still needs a water level part. Frigidaire did give me an extra year warranty coverage but it has not worked since nice day one. I will check to see if the lemon law can help. Major league disappointment!

Dramatic Improvement over the previous model

lee bee 3/12/2020

I previously onwned a Frigidaire 18" dishwasher and I was not happy with it. The filter had to be cleaned very often and the dishes were not coming out clean. The store representative assured me that he was getting positive review on this model and I am glad I listened. I have not had to clean the filter in the month+ I own it and dishes come out much cleaner. The racks are a much better design too.

Great feature packed "little" machine

mpdes 1/1/2020

I had an older Frigidaire 18" dishwasher for many years and only updated it because we were doing the kitchen floor over. I was excited to get control and features not previously available in my older one's era. A big plus with the upper rack spray nozzle, stainless interior, and an electronics panel with a lot of bells and whistles including my favorite: delay start.I would recommend to anyone in need of an 18" model.

Cleans thoroughly!

DaninTurtleBay 11/1/2019

The variety of wash and rinse settings are great for conserving water and electricity. If you have something specific that won't require a long cleaning cycle, you have plenty of choices for time and temperature.

Dishes are coming out sparkling clean.

Mom29cats 10/29/2019

Have had my 18™€ dishwasher for about 3 weeks I was a little confused about how to tell the level of the Finish dry at first, so dishes weren™€™t coming out fully dry. I purchased this model specifically for the heating element to dry the dishes. You have to fill the well with the Finish dry until you see the little black line showing full, but don™€™t overfill. This is the ke to having dry dishes. This small dishwasher is just the right size for 2 people. We are retired and don™€™t do a lot of involved meal prep/cooking.

Big Work in a Small Size

Piano Girl 10/29/2019

I planned to buy a full size dishwasher when my current dishwasher bit the dust. After a lot of research I decided to go with the 18 inch built in dishwasher. We are glad we did. Not only does this dishwasher save cabinet space, but it does a great job.

Good job on heavy

deacon8385 8/2/2019

I started using this item about one month ago. I does a very good job on the heavy setting but not as good on the others. My main complaint is with the control panel as it can't be read without getting down on your knees and getting a flashlight to read the small print on the controls. The print is almost the same color as the background. Unit was easy to install as I did it myself. Good instructions.
