Options galore

Like its predecessor, the FGID2466QF, this Frigidaire model offers a range of cycles so you can pick the one that best suits your dishes.

OrbitClean

Pick a cycle, and Frigidaire's wheel of water jets will go to work. This wheel is called OrbitClean. It sits on a spinning arm at the bottom of the machine and spins itself. The goal is to spray into the corners of the machine and hit your dishes with water from multiple angles.

A second water wheel

Frigidaire introduced the OrbitClean feature on its previous flagship model, and it did help the dishwasher perform admirably in our cleaning tests.

The latest OrbitClean has a refined design to propel water with more intensity. Frigidaire also added a second OrbitClean water wheel.

Dual OrbitClean

In addition to the OrbitClean at the bottom of the tub, the FGIP2468 puts one beneath the upper rack as well.

MaxBoost Dry

The FGIP2468 also has a cool new drying technique. A heating element at the bottom of the dishwasher combines with cool air blowing from the top. The heat rises and the fan at the top uses room-temperature air to blow the condensation into a vent.

Thanks to the new cleaning and drying features, the FGIP2468 is supposedly faster than previous models without losing any effectiveness.
