White goods such as dishwashers are a large financial commitment that, when made right, will save you time and money. Now as famous for its sales in the UK as it is in the US, Black Friday is a great time to buy a top-rated dishwasher for a price much lower than the recommended retail price (RRP).
To help you make an informed decision about what to spend your money on, we conducted a survey across 1000 households to find out what dishwashers people owned, their reasoning for choosing them and whether they would buy them again.
Combined with trusted advice from domestic white goods experts and repairs engineers including from AO.com, whitegoodshelp.co.uk and Currys PC World, we brought you recommended suggestions of the best dishwashers to help you find the right ones for your home and budget.
Our full dishwasher buying guide runs you through everything you need to know, from features to look out for to understanding a dishwasher’s efficiency. Once you’ve decided on the dishwasher for you, this is the right place to be.

Best early dishwasher Black Friday deals
We’re busy searching for the best Black Friday dishwasher deals on our favourite tried-and-tested models and will be updating this page regularly as they drop. In the meantime, why not check some of these out while we wait for other deals to appear? The Bosch SMS25EW00G was our recommended best all-rounder, while the Miele G7360 SCVi is a top pick for your smart home.
Samsung Series 6 DW60M6050FW dishwasher | A++, Black Friday deals
Voted best dishwasher for medium families by white goods experts in our buyer’s guide to the best dishwashers, this Samsung boasts a 14 place-setting capacity and a childproof lock on its door when turned on. Versatility is a particular selling point. The upper basket can be moved up and down to accommodate tall plates underneath, whilst the plate spikes themselves are adjustable to best support the contents of each load. Handily, there’s a 30-minute quick wash setting and if you choose to run a half load, the machine will adjust its energy usage accordingly. Check out Samsung’s early Black Friday deals here.
Miele G7360 SCVi| A+++ dishwasher, Black Friday deals
Offering 14 place settings and 10 cleaning cycles programs, this Miele has all the basic functions you’d want from a fully integrated dishwasher. Except it’s far from basic, boasting the highest energy efficiency rating (A+++), among other things, to help you save energy and therefore money on bills. You can also control it by voice when paired with an Amazon Alexa device, or through the WiFiConn@ct app on your smartphone. RRP £1499.
Bosch SMS25EW00G | A++, Black Friday deals
This machine washes 14 place settings at a time and boasts improved efficiency over the SMS40T32GB model, along with reduced water consumption, making it cheaper to run. The brand has added a third rack VarioDrawer to place cutlery and utensils on whilst its top basket is height adjustable to offer flexibility over what can be stacked inside. If you’re washing precious or delicate glasses, select the specific program to achieve what’s reportedly watermark-free and shiny glasses. We also like the safety features including a childproof lock door and leak protection system to give you peace of mind. RRP £429.
Bosch Serie 2 SMS24AW01G | A+, Black Friday deals
With a 12-setting capacity, the Bosch Serie 2 is a good option for smaller families. Although it lacks some of the bells and whistles of more expensive dishwasher models, this freestanding Serie 2 does feature adjustable racking over three heights and the brand’s brushless motor, which it claims will achieve a powerful wash with minimal energy loss. If you’re particularly lacking in time, the variospeed option tells your dishwasher to complete the wash and dry cycle in the shortest time possible. The quick wash takes just 29 minutes which is handy if you’re in a hurry. RRP £299.
When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday is an annual shopping event, originally from the US, that’s become synonymous with brands and retailers dropping deals on products on the first Friday after Thanksgiving ahead of Christmas.
This year, Black Friday falls on 27 November and deals will run right through to the 30 November, dubbed Cyber Monday. Plus, the trend has seen deals start earlier and earlier in order to entice customers.
Are the dishwasher deals on Black Friday worth waiting for?
With high-value items like dishwashers, every saving counts. The UK’s largest retailers, including John Lewis & Partners, AO.com, Currys, Amazon and Argos ran deals across their stock both online and in store last year and will be competing for your money with retailers like Very this time around. With the doors of all non-essential retail stores closing between 5 November and 2 December in line with new government regulations, we’re expecting a storm of Black Friday kitchen appliance deals unlike anything we’ve seen before.
You’ll likely find that dishwasher models which are neither the newest or oldest often have the best deals on, so that brands and retailers can make way for new stock.
How to get a good deal on Black Friday
- Do your research first so you have the model you want in mind. Dishwashers come with a variety of specifications, features and programs, so knowing what you’re looking for will ensure you’re not lulled into buying something that’s not right for you. Our buyer’s guide is a good place to start.
- Be familiar with the RRP of each product in advance so you’re aware of how much money you’ll save when each deal rolls along.
- Only buy what you can afford.
- Some retailers such as John Lewis & Partners, AO.com and Currys guarantee that they will match a price if you find a product being sold cheaper by another retailer.
Should I wait for Cyber Monday?
Like almost everything this year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday will look a little different. Retailers are rightly anticipating lower footfall in high street branches and with greater social-distancing measures in place, will be likely bringing their best deals online.
The last few years have also seen deals starting earlier and earlier. Cyber Monday used to be the day on which to make your online purchases, but our advice is not to wait. Do your research ahead of time, find the best dishwasher for you and check back here for all the latest news and best dishwasher Black Friday 2020 deals.
