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 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.
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.
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.
