As much as you may despise that never-ending pile of washing, doing the laundry is something that most of us can't avoid. Selecting the right washing machine can make it a touch more convenient though, and if you can get one at the right price, then even better.

What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is a sale that happens every year in November. Although it is on one day officially, there are deals throughout the month, meaning it's a great opportunity to save money - particularly on those big ticket household appliances.
When is Black Friday 2021?
Officially Black Friday is on 26th November this year, but you will start seeing the first deals a lot earlier. We're expecting deals to begin at the start of November, and for them to continue throughout the month, and some stores even have a pre-Black Friday sale.
Cyber Monday will follow on from Black Friday and be on 29th November this year.
Is Black Friday a good time to get a new washing machine?
"I've bought an AEG, seemed to have the right mix of quality, price and features. I wanted large load capacity, quick wash, child lock and ability to adjust depending on load size, which these all did. Got it on a Black Friday deal and it's being delivered on Saturday!" - Tararararara
"We now have a Samsung with a five year guarantee which cost about £500 during Black Friday." - Wherearemymarbles
"I've replaced it with a similarly priced Candy that I got in the Black Friday deals." - Laucu
In a word: yes. You can expect to see big savings on a range of different household appliances come November, and this includes fantastic savings on a range of washing machines. Previous years have seen hundreds knocked off of popular models so if you're suspecting your trusty machine is on the way out or you simply want a model that works better for you, it's worth hanging on to see the savings on offer this year.
How to find the best Black Friday washing machine deals
With many retailers competing for shoppers' attentions on Black Friday, it's good to browse around to make sure you're getting the best deal. When it comes to more expensive items like washing machines and dishwashers, we recommend having a shortlist of products, or at least requirements, prior to buying to make sure you're getting the machine that suits your needs and not getting swept up in the impulse of a seemingly good saving.
You could sign up to store and brands' email marketing lists to be in the know about offers, but bear in mind that if you rely on emails like this alone you may miss out on another great bargain, as the deals featured will be for that brand only.
Alternatively, you can let us do all the hard work for you (sounds good, right?). As soon as the earliest Black Friday deals start we'll be browsing for the best discounts on washing machines and publishing them all here for you to peruse. Just bookmark this page and keep checking back as we'll be updating it as soon as the deals start to go live.
Where will have the best washing machine deals on Black Friday?
"Still haven't plumbed ours in so can't comment on quality, but we bought our washing machine and tumble [dryer] from AO during their Black Friday sale. They worked out about £500 cheaper altogether waiting for that. Also got cash back from our credit card so worked out well." - BillyAndTheSillies
If you're looking for a new washing machine in the Black Friday sales, it really pays to shop around and fortunately many online retailers will be participating and cutting prices in November. Of course, until the savings launch we won't know the exact offers, but these are the top washing machine brands we're predicting you'll be able to get deals on:
Here are some of the shops you can expect to see those savings from too:
What is the best washing machine to buy?
After extensive research, we found our favourite freestanding washing machine to buy is the Samsung WW90K6414QW with AddWash. We loved that you can add clothes after the wash has started (we've all remembered something that needed washing when it was too late to add to the load), plus its energy efficiency too.
If you're in the market for an integrated washing machine, our best buy is the Hotpoint BIWMHG71483UKN. While shopping for an integrated model means you will have less choice, this machine ticked the boxes thanks to its quick stain-removal setting.
What were the Best Black Friday washing machine deals in 2020?
