Dishwasher and Microwave

Anybody have an opinion on Frigidaire Gallary appliances? We bought a new 4 piece set. We're very happy with the oven and refrigerator, but our over the range microwave fan doesn't take care of the steam (exhaust) from the range and our dishwasher doesn't dry our dishes well...seems to be condensation present afterwards. Any opinions?

is the microwave vented outside? is the damper opening? Micro vent should be able to take care of any odors and steam if installed properly.
Modern dishwashers do not dry like the old ones, most do not have the fan assisted dry any more. Not uncommon for items to still be damp/wet after cycle, especially plastic items. Make sure your jet dry dispenser is full and working, this will help dry.

Frigidaire dishwashers are lackluster at best. We purchased a Kitchenaid in January and does a nice job of drying everything.
