Typical Dishwasher Dimensions - Measure Before You Shop

Posted by Todd Buehler on Feb 8, 2019 11:15:00 AM

 

Before you head out the door to shop for a new dishwasher for your kitchen, one of the first things you should ask yourself is, "How much space do I have for installation?" This is especially important if you have an older home or custom kitchen that may have unusual dimensions. For more help buying a new dishwasher, check out our dishwasher buying guide!

The rough opening size for a dishwasher, in a perfect world, is 24 inches wide, 24 inches deep and 34 inches high, but in older homes, this isn't always the case. With new models, typical dishwasher dimensions are 23.9'' wide, 24.5'' deep to the front of the door and 33.9'' high. Most brands make standard-size models, but there are some specialty sizes that are available to fit into spaces that are non-standard.

Panel Ready Dishwashers - Are They A Good Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 23, 2019 11:00:00 AM

 

If you are designing a new kitchen and want to achieve a modern and professional style, you may want to consider a panel ready dishwasher, also known as an overlay dishwasher. This style allows you to have your cabinetmaker design a panel for the front of your dishwasher which will match the doors on your kitchen cabinets and install a matching handle. These models are designed to hold the weight of the custom panel and add a nice look to the kitchen. They may pair well with a panel ready refrigerator and help you achieve that integrated high-end look you desire.

There are many other factors to consider when researching a dishwasher, but if looks are a top concern, a panel ready model may be what you need. For more information to help you choose a new dishwasher, check out our dishwasher buying guide!

Best Clothes Dryer LG vs Maytag - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 23, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

If you think of your clothes dryer as being one of the simplest appliances in your home, think again. Most people think that it just turns a drum and blows heat, but there's quite a bit going on inside that big metal box! If you are in the process of researching a new dryer, you know there are many brands, models, and features to consider. We'll compare LG and Maytag to help you determine the best clothes dryer brand for you.

In order to compare the two models, we need to first look at some of the technology behind drying clothes. Clothes dryers have a variety of safety features to not only go easy on your clothes by preventing over-drying, but also keep your home safe if something malfunctions. The average system will have a temperature range of 80 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on selected cycles and settings. There are two main ways for a dryer to keep track of the drying progress: moisture sensors and thermistors.

Electric Clothes Dryer Reviews - GE vs Frigidaire

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 23, 2019 8:00:00 AM

 

Older electric dryers are just one of the many household products in your home that may be serious energy hogs. As they age, dryers lose sufficient fresh air intake as well as heat and moisture discharge capabilities due to a number of factors, such as worn or broken blower wheels, worn or dry-rotted drum seals, stretched belts, or slow motor rotation and aging thermostats. And, of course, keep in mind that all dryers accumulate lint within their components throughout their lifetime.

If you’re finding your current dryer either gobbles electricity or needs multiple runs to properly dry your laundry, then wait no longer … it's time to replace it. New dryers have more efficient motors and blowers, fresh drum seals and better thermostats and moisture sensors, allowing them to finish the job quicker, which means less run time and thus lower operating costs.

When you begin your dryer research, consider the brands GE and Frigidaire. Both GE and Frigidaire have been in the laundry business for as long as we can remember for good reason: quality products! We've put together these electric clothes dryer reviews of two of their top budget-priced models to help you make an informed decision.

Dishwasher Decibel Levels - Learn The Facts Before Shopping

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 22, 2019 8:00:00 PM

 

People often ask our sales staff - "How quiet is this model?" We try to give the most precise answer that we can by using decibel (dB) rating. The quietness of a dishwasher wasn't an issue when dishwashers became a staple household appliance in the 1970s, but today consumers are willing to pay more for appliances that operate quietly. Bosch was the first to offer quieter models in the early 2000s, and other brands were quick to follow as demand rose.

Quieter dishwashers are recommended for homes with open floor plans - where sound can easily travel from the kitchen to other areas of the home - and for homes where the kitchen is a central gathering place. Older dishwashers are noisy enough that trying to carry on a conversation in the kitchen while it's running might be a frustrating task!

Dishwasher decibel levels are a way to describe exactly how quiet or noisy a dishwasher is while in operation. We'll explain what these ratings mean for you and explore why today's dishwashers can be so quiet! For more information on choosing a new dishwasher, check out our dishwasher buying guide!
