Frigidaire FDB1050REC 24-in. Under Counter Dishwasher

Posted

Pros: Looks fairly good

Cons: Unreliable

It's definitely a 'budget' model for people that want a stainless dishwasher. It occasionally doesn't respond to inputs of the controls (won't start on the first button push, doesn't start on the 2 or 4 hour delay as requested). It only does a decent job of getting really dirty dishes cleaned. It's basically a very average performer, but looks good for the price. I'd recommend most people spend a bit more for a better performer with a few more features.

I finally got my landlord to agree to install a dishwasher in my house. We agreed it had to be Energy Star and of course he wanted it to be cheap. When this Frigidaire was delivered, I immediately went online to research and found some HARSH reviews. Needless to say I wasn't excited, but now, after 5 months of use, I'm pleasantly surprised.

With very little pre-washing (usually none), the dishes are always clean and operating costs have been low (actually our water bill went down since we installed it. Great, affordable dishwasher!

Pros: Economical

Cons: Seems like it doesn't work effectively....sometimes

I like my dishwasher, it looks good and I often think it is bigger than other's (although it's not but it seems like I fit more in it than others). I feel like sometimes it doesn't clean as good as it should, but maybe that's my fault for not cleaning it properly or something? Over all I think it is good looking and a good value.

Troubleshooting:

 

Issue: Repeated presses of the "Start" button fail to start the machine:

 

Resolution: Though this should not happen regularly, when it does, just rotate the mode selection knob 360 degrees back to the setting that you want, then push start. This seems to fix it every time.
