Whirlpool Appliance Repair & Warranty

Whirlpool

Whirlpool kitchen and laundry appliances are common in American households. If you have a Whirlpool appliance in your home, read on to learn more about Whirlpool warranty service and options for extended coverage.

Whirlpool Appliances Warranty Coverage

Whirlpool generally offers a one-year warranty for the majority of their major appliances. This warranty covers parts and labor to repair a machine that is deemed faulty due to a manufacturing defect or poor workmanship.

Some component parts of certain appliances may have extended coverage. For instance, Whirlpool covers their sealed refrigeration systems for five full years. On the other hand, a few components may have less than a year’s coverage. A notable example is a Whirlpool refrigerator’s water filter, which is covered for only 30 days from the date of purchase.

The Best Home Warranty Service

There's a reason Liberty Home Guard was rated the #1 Home Warranty Service by U.S. News and World Report for 2021, 2022, and 2023. Check out our services.

It’s important to consider what Whirlpool warranty repair service will not cover. The limited warranty does not cover consumable parts—think replaceable filters and lightbulbs. It also does not cover damage sustained from abuse or improper installation. While Whirlpool’s warranty will cover cosmetic damage—scratches, dents, chips, and the like—defects must be reported to Whirlpool within 30 days of purchase.

Finally, be mindful of actions that can void Whirlpool’s warranty. The company will no longer honor the policy if the appliance is modified after purchase or used for commercial applications. You will also void your warranty by obscuring the appliance’s serial number.

Whirlpool Extended Warranty Coverage

Though a one-year warranty is pretty much standard for different manufacturers, it’s not all that much time, when you think about it. We expect our expensive kitchen and laundry appliances to last well beyond a single year.

So, what do you do when Whirlpool appliance malfunctions and the warranty has already expired? Unfortunately, you need to front the cost of repair yourself—unless you have an extended warranty, service plan, or home warranty.

Whirlpool extended warranties are available to homeowners, but extended service plans that are backed by the appliance’s original manufacturer aren’t for everyone. Whirlpool’s plan guarantees certified Whirlpool parts, but coverage is limited to only Whirlpool appliances, of course. Many people might have a Whirlpool fridge but a GE oven or LG dishwasher. In this situation, a home warranty or service plan from a third-party company makes more sense.

Liberty Home Guard covers all major home equipment manufacturers, Whirlpool included. If you’re looking to extend coverage on your Whirlpool appliance, call us today to learn how bundled coverage can save you money and protect other major appliances and systems in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

HOME WARRANTY
  • What is a home warranty?

    A home warranty is a service contract that covers the cost of repairs and replacements for your home’s systems and appliances when they break down over time from normal wear and tear.

  • How does a home warranty work?

    It’s simple, you can select the coverage plan of your choice that is the best fit for your home and budget.

    When you request service for a covered item, you will be charged a pre-set fee in order to initiate the service request.

    With an LHG home warranty, when a covered item needs repair, simply follow these steps:

    • File a claim online or call.
    • After paying your set fee, we’ll put you in contact with a local contractor to schedule your appointment.
    • After officially diagnosing the problem, the contractor will contact us to make sure the issue is covered by your plan.
    • If everything checks out, the contractor will then repair or replace the item in question.
    • Afterwards, we’ll check in with you by email or phone to make sure you’re happy with the job.
  • What does a home warranty cover?

    Liberty Home Guard offers 3 different plans depending on the coverage your home needs. The Total Home Guard is a combination of both our Appliance Guard and Systems Guard plan. It is our most comprehensive and most economical.

    We offer add-ons to each plan. Check HERE for our Home Warranty Plans & Policies page to learn more about everything we cover.

  • How is a home warranty different from homeowner’s insurance?

    A home warranty covers the costs of repairs and replacements of major home appliances and systems. Home systems, for example, include plumbing, electrical, and HVAC.

    Homeowners insurance provides coverage if theft or natural disaster hits.

  • How is a home warranty different from a manufacturer’s warranty?

    The main difference is that a manufacturer’s warranty generally covers the failed part of a single appliance, but usually doesn’t include the cost of labor or repair. With a home warranty, one plan covers a variety of systems and appliances, making it a more cost-effective way to safeguard your home.

  • Why is buying a home warranty a good decision for homeowners?

    A home warranty protects the homeowner’s budget by removing the risk of fluctuating expenses when big ticket items break down. With a Liberty Home Guard home warranty, the homeowner will pay for a monthly plan, along with a flat rate service call fee associated with any repairs, rather than the full retail cost of replacing or repairing any of their home appliances or systems.

  • Do I have to get a home inspection before getting a Liberty Home Guard home warranty?

    No. Liberty Home Guard doesn’t require a home inspection or any maintenance records to purchase a home warranty plan.

  • How long does it take to fulfill a service request?

    Liberty Home Guard will dispatch a licensed technician to your home within 24 - 48 (business) hours of your request. Extenuating circumstances do apply.

  • Can I choose my own service contractor?

    Yes, you absolutely can. We only ask that you reach out to us first so that we can authorize the contractor you'd like to work with. This helps ensure that the highest standards are applied and that you and your family are kept safe. In our experience, you will usually save the most money and get the best work done using an LHG Certified Professional. All of our contractors are licensed professionals, and their work comes with a 60-day workmanship guarantee.

  • What happens if I sell my home?

    You can take your warranty with you to your new home, or cancel your warranty plan.

  • Can I cancel at any time?

    Yes, you can cancel at any time. If your cancellation occurs within the first 30 days of your coverage, we’ll refund your contract fees minus the cost of claims paid, and we will charge a small administrative overhead fee. If you cancel after the 30th day, you’ll receive a prorated refund of your contract fees for the rest of the contract term minus the cost of claims paid, and we will charge a small administrative overhead fee.
