On November 25th it's that time again.

Then the run for the best offers on Black Friday begins again.

We will show you which investments are really worthwhile.

Here is an overview of the best washing machines.

Munich – The laundry should be clean, it also has to smell good and the washing machine should of course also be energy-saving.

But that's by far not all that such a device has to be able to do nowadays.

After all, the modern technology of such machines should also be less prone to failure in the long term.

Not only the drum in the interior should rotate effortlessly and continuously.

But also the spin programs with pre-programmed speeds should withstand the washing processes several times a week over a longer period of time.

The test by Stiftung Warentest from this year shows that economical, environmentally friendly devices are particularly expensive.

Consumers who also pay attention to the price of a new investment must consider this before making a purchase.

According to the tester, particularly economical devices can cost up to 1600 euros.

Buying a washing machine can therefore be extremely worthwhile for consumers, especially on Black Friday.

Black Friday in Germany: consider important purchase criteria

If you have a lot of colored laundry, you can be happy.

According to Stiftung Warentest, all tested machines wash very cleanly at 40 degrees and with a full load.

A little tip: Consumers should fill the drums to the brim – except for delicates and woollens.

This is how the devices wash most efficiently.

On top of that, low temperatures for the washing process save on your own electricity bill.

But be careful: this is where the germs thrive best in the long run.

A 60 degree normal program ensures that the germs die off again.

Most machines in the test reach this temperature.

Our tip for consumers:

The washing machine should definitely ensure a

water temperature of 60 degrees Celsius

Protection against water damage

is just as important -

especially if the machine is located in a flat and cannot be connected in a basement room.

A device from

Haier

as well as models from

Amica

and

Sharp

show weaknesses here.

They are at best suitable for rooms with a drain on the floor, according to the test result from Stiftung Warentest.

Here is an overview of washing machines with an overall test rating of “good”:

all included in the overall assessment

.

  • Tip:

    When

    buying a washing machine, consumers should also consider the power consumption of the machine

    : washing machines have had a new energy label since spring 2021.

    The efficiency classes no longer range

    from

    A to G.

    There are no longer labels with

    an A and a plus sign on new devices.

    The best energy efficiency class for washing machines is A, the worst class is F.

    The appliances are more economical the further up they are in the alphabet.

    The label provides information about the most important

    purchase criteria:

    the

    size of the washing machine

    , the

    water consumption

    , the

    spin class

    , the

    volume

    ,

    power consumption

    and

    energy efficiency

    .

Black Friday in Germany: offers and deals - shopping event since 2006

Black Friday originally comes from the USA.

It is the bridge Friday after Thanksgiving (4th Thursday in November).

Many Americans take the day off.

A chance for retailers to boost sales.

Even if the importance of the day of action is now declining according to  the

Handelsblatt 

, the highest turnover of the whole year since 2005 has been generated on that day.

Black Friday has been around in Germany since 2006.

The top sellers include technology bargains and smartphone deals.

Big discounts can also be made for games and fashion deals.

When it comes to Black Friday, consumers should be aware that even a tempting price is not necessarily worth it for them in the end.

Some online shops, for example, charge high shipping costs.

And some discounts were also cheated in the run-up to Black Friday.

If you don't like the goods you ordered online, you will sometimes have to pay for the return shipping yourself.

Fortunately, there is a right of return in Germany.
