Black Friday and Cyber Monday might be best known for tech deals—but I’m here to tell you the real savings are on home appliances.
See, retailers are trying to make room for next year’s washers, dryers, fridges, and dishwashers—and that means significant discounts for you. So if you’re thinking about about replacing an appliance that’s on its last legs or planning a remodel, now’s the time to buy.
Because our experts have tested thousands of appliances in our labs in Cambridge, MA, we can tell you which appliances you should spend your money on, and which deals are duds. Here are the best deals on the best appliances of 2017.
Best washer and dryer deals
Our top-rated top-loader is on sale for $495—about $35 less than usual. This straightforward, American-made washer comes with a Deep Fill option to add more water during a wash, and it comes in both white and gray.
If you want to save space by stacking your washer and dryer—or if you want the energy-saving benefits of a top-loader—this model from Samsung is as affordable as it gets. It’s rare to see front-load washers and dryers sell for less than $600, and this Samsung is actually quite good at cleaning, too! Use code HOL17THD5 to save another $5.
One of the best sales at Sears is on our Best of Year affordable washing machine, the Kenmore 20232. At just $269, this American-made washer is built by Whirlpool—and one of the most affordable washers on the market. It qualifies for free delivery as long as you buy it with its matching electric or gas dryer, too.
The nearly-identical Amana NTW4516FW top-load washer is available at Home Depot for $269, plus an additional $5 off with offer code HOL17THD5.
Best refrigerator deals
Not only is this a great deal—it’s a great fridge. This Samsung is our #2-rated refrigerator overall, and the top-rated affordable French door in our Best of Year awards. You’re not going to find a better fridge for less. Use code HOL17THD5 to save another $5.
Counter depth refrigerators tend to cost a little more than standard-depth models, but they take up less space in your kitchen and don’t stand out as far from your cabinets.
We’ve tested many LG models similar to this fridge, and think this is an awesome deal on a sleek, affordable, counter-depth refrigerator.
If you’re looking for extra storage, this is one of our favorite refrigerators. With a door-in-door compartment that’s easy to access and a pull-out drawer for snacks or beverages, it’s perfect for a big family. For about $100 more, you can get it in trendy Black Stainless. Use code HOL17THD5 to save another $5.
Our Best of Year award winner for 2017 is at an all-time low sale price, and we think it is an incredibly good value.
Why do we love it? Well, it has dual evaporators, a feature usually found in fridges that cost three times the price. That means fresh foods stay fresh, and frozen foods don't get freezer burn. Use code HOL17THD5 to save another $5.
Best dishwasher deals
Whirlpool dishwashers are good values—I have a similar model in my own home. Because it has a plastic tub this one might be a little louder than most newer dishwashers, but it’s certainly quieter than a decade-old model. At $298, you’re not going to find a better dishwasher for less—unless you use code HOL17THD5 to save another $5.
Or, you could step up to the dishwasher that won our Best of Year award for value—a quiet LG with a modern look. It cleans really well, too!
We love this KitchenAid dishwasher because of its unique water filtration system, which rinses your dishes with clean water without making a ton of noise. Ball bearings keep its racks sliding smoothly, too. In fact, it’s our top-ranked dishwasher that isn’t a Bosch (and Bosch dishwashers never go on sale like this). Use code HOL17THD5 to save another $5.
Best cooking appliance deals
This is one of the best-selling electric ranges in the U.S. In fact, I bought it for my own kitchen in 2015 and am still satisfied with it. Its stainless trim and sleek exterior blend in with almost any kitchen style, and both our lab tests and my years of ownership show that it bakes evenly and boils quickly.
This is the best deal we’ve ever seen on a gas convection range. While we haven’t tested this specific model, we do know that it is made for Kenmore by Frigidaire, and we’ve been impressed with their affordable ranges lately.
If you’re remodeling your kitchen, you should upgrade to this insanely affordable stainless range from Kenmore. We’ve never seen a stainless smoothtop range at this low a price.
