Samsung Series 6 DW60M6050FW dishwasher | A++, Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals
- Save 24% at John Lewis, was £499 now £379 (save £120, currently out of stock)
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 and Cyber Monday 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 and Cyber Monday deals
This machine 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 and Cyber Monday deals
- Save 8% at Appliances Direct, was £350, now £319.97 (save £30, currently out of stock)
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.
Miele G7310 SCi | A+++, Black Friday deals
- Currently out of stock
This is a sophisticated and versatile full-sized dishwasher that’s been seemingly designed to give you ultimate control over cleaning your dishes, without any of the effort. One of the most impressive things about this dishwasher is its A+++ energy rating, highlighting it as being particularly efficient with energy and water. This therefore suggests it would be a cost effective dishwasher to run.

When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday 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 and Cyber Monday 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 and Cyber Monday 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 and Cyber Monday
- 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.
