Performance Ratings
Spray
Jets
No Spray Jets - High pressure water spray jets are not available with the Frigidaire FGHD2465NW. Spray jets are available on about 40% of new dishwashers and are effective on loosening baked-on food or grease from silverware, pans, and dishes.  
High
Temp
High-Temp Wash Option - Includes the option to select a high-temperature wash cycle. Really hot water combined with the right detergent and softened water can help loosen dried-on, baked-on food deposits and produce clean dishes.
Steam No Steam Option - Like most new dishwashers, this Frigidaire model does not have the capability to generate steam. High-temperature water vapor can be an effective means of loosening tough food deposits from silverware and dishes.  
Wash
Levels
5 Wash Levels - Water is delivered from three spray arms in the bottom, middle, and top of the dishwasher. Allows streams of water to saturate dishes from many different angles and directions. More wash levels promotes more thorough cleaning.
Sensor
Washing
Sensor Washing - Uses one or more sensors to measure soil content, load level, and/or water temperature. The Frigidaire FGHD2465NW sensors automatically make wash-cycle adjustments to help ensure optimum cleaning with user intervention.
Sanitize Sanitize Capability - Certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) to achieve a minimum 99.999% or 5-log reduction of bacteria using ANSI 184 standards. Final rinse temperatures reach at least 150 deg F to sanitize cookware.
Food
Disposer
Built-In Food Disposer - Includes a built-in food disposer that helps keep the wash water clean and free of debris. Minimizes the number of food particles that can deposit on dishes. Saves water, no need to pre-rinse dishes.
Water
Softener
No Water Softener - Does not have a built-in water softener that can condition the water and remove minerals and impurities. Most homes with hard water have a whole-house softener so integrated models are only available on a few dishwashers.  


Convenience Ratings
No. of
Racks
2 Racks - The Frigidaire FGHD2465NW has a standard 2-rack design with both upper and lower loading racks. Only about 20% of new dishwashers have an additional 3rd rack design that can be used for cups and smaller items such as flatware or utensils.  
Spray
Arms
Spray Arms - Uses a superior rotating spray arm design instead of a central tower located in the middle of the bottom rack. Spray arms deliver water to more interior areas and angles. Doesn't waste rack space or limit loading flexibility.

Place
Settings
14 Settings - Number of place settings is 1 higher than average. Ranks in the top 35% of new dishwashers for BETTER plate and cookware loading capacity. Convenient for larger families or if you simply want to save money by running the dishwasher less often.
Fold-Down
Tines
Fold-Down Tines - Some of the divider tines positioned vertically in the rack can be folded down. Helps secure items, and provides greater flexibility with making space for larger cookware that won't fit in-between or above the tines.
Concealed
Element
No Concealed Element - Like most new dishwashers available today, this Frigidaire model does not have a heating element that is concealed or recessed to help prevent accidental contact and melting of dishes or utensils in the lower rack.  
Controls All-Digital Integrated Controls - Touch-pad, all-digital control console is fully integrated (hidden) on the top edge of the door for a clean, seamless look from the front. About 50% of new dishwashers are fully integrated. Personal choice.
