Third motor replacement in less than 20 cycles

I bought this new in the spring of 2019 for our cabin. It ran 3 or 4 times before making a whining noise. Called customer service, and they arrainged for a local repair man. Repair man diagnosed the issue to the motor, but didn't have the parts on hand. After waiting for the parts to arrive he installed a new motor. This 2nd motor ran for 2 or 3 cycles before making a whining noise. Called customer service again, and they arraigned for a different local repair service to come out. Again, the repair man diagnosed the problem to the motor / impeller unit and also noted a leak under the motor. So I am now waiting for my third motor / impeller unit to be installed while dealing with a leak. I bought the Frigidaire brand name in hopes it had better quality control.The unit leaves dried soap residue on the door and dishes. And yes, the hot water temp into the unit is above the specified value.Very disappointed.

excellent value

I bought this last month and have been very happy w/it.One problem is that it does not dry the dishes, so I have to air dry them. But it cleans very well, has good size, is quiet, and the price was good.

Broke exactly 1 year later

Broken; parts to fix it are not available

CURRENT UPDATE:The verdict is that the unit needs a new control board. Problem is, none are available at all, as they are back-ordered from the factory, and there is no idea if or when one will be available. My unit sits broken, not even a year old, and Frigidaire cannot fix it. This is an epic fail, in my opinion. I will never buy another Frigidaire product. (I have a range and refrigerator too!)PREVIOUS REVIEW:Have had this less than a year. It does clean well. However, after only 7 washes it had little dots of rust on the inside door and base of the unit inside. A more serious problem is that a few months ago it stopped completely draining after wash cycles, leaving a pool of water in the base of the dishwasher. It does suck the remaining water out at the beginning of a new cycle, but clearly it's not supposed to leave a lake of standing water after a cycle. A technician is scheduled to come out next week for a warranty repair, so hopefully the problem can be resolved.
