Laundry Tips for Your LG Washer and Dryer

LG Washer & Dryers from Friedmans Appliance

LG appliances are trusted for their effective, efficient, and dependable cleaning abilities. With all of the fantastic laundry technology infused in LG washers and dryers, your clothes, sheets, and even your sneakers will look bright and amazing. These laundry tips paired with your LG appliances will cut your dry cleaning bills in half:

Follow Care Labels
Every garment should come with its own special care label that will specify at what temperature you should wash the item, which setting to use, and whether it can be machine dried. Be sure to take the time to read this label before washing any piece of clothing so that you can clean and care for your clothes in a way that will not damage them.

Pre-Treat Stains
If you are dealing with heavily stained clothes, it is always good to pretreat the stains before you wash them. HE detergent is ideal for tough stains, so pour a small amount onto the stain and let it soak in for five minutes. If you are tackling a stubborn stain, add detergent and presoak the entire garment in a low level of warm water for at least a half-hour. If your LG washer has StainCare™, you can also try this unique LG option that uses various temperatures to attack different types of stains.  

Sort Your Laundry
You may have heard it a thousand times, but sorting your laundry by color, fabric, and corresponding water temperature can really go a long way in preserving the look and integrity of your clothes. Once again, follow each garment’s care label and never put items that are dry clean or hand wash only into your laundry units. Divide the rest of your clothes by whites, lights, darks, brights, and delicates.

Friedmans Appliance is proud to carry a wide selection of LG washers and dryers. From our Large Capacity Gas Dryers and Steam Washers to the LG All-in-One Washer/Dryer Combo, we have the right technology and appliance for your laundry needs. If you are in the Concord area, stop by our Pleasant Hill showroom, or call us at (925) 265-8402 if you have any questions.

Tips for Getting Cleaner Dishes from Your Dishwasher

Friedmans Appliance Showroom

Are your dishes not as clean as you’d like them to be when you remove them from the dishwasher? Your dirty dishes may not be the fault of your dishwashing appliance. So, before you call an appliance repairman, try these simple steps for cleaner dishes, shiny glasses, and sparkling silverware.

Remove Any Obstacles
Before you load your dishes, look at the base of your dishwasher to make sure there isn’t a piece of food or another obstacle impeding its function. Check the filter box that protects your dishwasher’s pump and remove any foreign objects that may be preventing your dishwasher from doing its job.

Use a Rinse Aid
If you have hard water, you may notice markings on your glasses and dishes. Dried water droplets leave deposits that cause these annoying streaks and spots. However, if you use a rinse aid, your dishes are more likely to dry evenly, so you can prevent these unsightly marks.

Avoid Pre-Rinsing Your Dishes
You may think you are helping out your dishwasher if you take the time to rinse your dishes before loading them. However, pre-rinsing can actually inhibit the dishwasher detergent, as it looks to attack food soil that you have already rinsed away. As a result, detergent is more likely to latch onto your glasses, causing a cloudy effect that can be permanent.

Don’t Overload Your Dishwasher
Improper loading can cause a lot of problems. Make there is enough space between dishes so that water from below has a chance to reach every item. Be sure to keep your more durable dishes on the bottom rack, and place your glasses and smaller dishes on the top. Do not load any dishes that are not dishwasher safe!

If these tips don’t do the trick, it may be time to purchase a new, state-of-the-art dishwasher—so visit Friedmans Appliance’s Concord showroom today! Our friendly staff will help you learn all about the fantastic features our appliances offer. For more information about our inventory and services, call (925) 265-8402.

Freestanding Models

Whether the chic, darker 736TC model appeals to your taste, or the wooden-framed 661 suits your classic design aesthetic, you are sure to find a model that meets your needs.

While they may be short in stature, Sub-Zero’s compact refrigerators still set the standard for residential refrigeration. Clients can choose from two models that differ based on their specific features, including an icemaker option.

Specialty Refrigerators

A Fundamental Guide to Kitchen Ventilation from Friedmans Appliance

Kitchen Venitlation from Friedmans Appliance

When shopping for kitchen appliances at the home appliance store, don’t forget to add ventilation equipment to your list of must-haves. These products—namely oven hoods—provide the most effective means of collecting and dispersing grease, smoke, and odors that will inevitably accumulate as you cook. Here is a fundamental guide to kitchen ventilation that will help you pick out the perfect hood for your range:

Convertible Hoods
Convertible hoods can be placed in a number of locations around the oven, including under a cabinet or mounted alone on a wall. This type of hood takes in the polluted air that is created as you cook and disperses it in order to prevent a buildup of unbreathable air. Like with other hoods, the air can be ventilated to the outside of the home or re-circulate through filters.

Ductless Hoods
Ductless hoods are the best option for your kitchen if your oven is located on an interior wall that does not allow for ventilation to the exterior of the home. As you cook, the hood will extract any smoke or odors and filter them. The purified air is then released back into the home’s indoor environment. You can choose from over 200 styles of ductless hoods at Concord’s top appliance store—Friedmans Appliance.

Ducted Hoods
Standing in direct contrast to the ductless hood, a ducted hood vents air directly to the outside of the home. These stovetop and oven hoods are easy to install above ovens that are placed alongside walls that are connected to the home’s exterior. If your kitchen is not arranged in such a fashion, be sure to discuss your options for installing a ducted hood with an appliances expert.

The best way to find out which hood is right for your kitchen is to speak with a Friedmans Appliance professional. Our friendly staff has the knowledge and experience necessary to find the perfect match for your kitchen. Call us at (925) 265-8402 to learn more about the other household appliances we carry.
