What Does A Maytag Warranty Cover?

What Does A Maytag Warranty Cover?

Many of our homes are powered by Maytag appliances. They are a reliable and vetted brand that specializes in everything from washing machines to microwaves to your HVAC system. Because of this, homeowners believe that a Maytag warranty for their home appliances may be a good investment in order to save money. Most Maytag appliances come with a limited warranty upon purchase. For example, you’ll likely have a maytag freezer warranty or a maytag washing machine warranty if these appliances are new purchases in your home. 

However, a limited warranty for individual new appliances is not a long term solution to home repairs. You may have just purchased a home with weathered Maytag appliances that will need replacement or repair sooner rather than later. In that case, a limited Maytag warranty doesn’t apply. Or, you may realize that you don’t have many Maytag appliances in your home after all.

There are more comprehensive options for coverage out there. For example, a home warranty is a service contract that covers your home systems and appliances, regardless of age and brand. 

However, you can choose to invest in a Maytag appliance warranty, and they offer extended coverage. It’s even possible to invest in a lifetime plan for your Maytag appliances, knowing that in spite of their durability, they will break down one day as all appliances do. Or, you could look into home warranty coverage. A home warranty will cover more than just your Maytag appliances.

 

A Home Warranty vs. A Maytag Extended Warranty

If you choose a Maytag warranty service, you get coverage to protect only your Maytag appliances. The company offers a Maytag Extended Service plan that allows you to pay a monthly premium to extend your coverage.

A home warranty is a service contract that covers the costs of home repairs and replacements when they break down from normal wear and tear. A home warranty will extend coverage beyond just your home’s Maytag appliances. Depending on your coverage, a home warranty can cover everything from gutter cleaning to fixing a broken septic system

Home warranties also provide the contractors who do all the repairs, saving homeowners the hassle of having to arrange these details. A Maytag warranty does not always cover the cost of the labor and may just cover the cost of replacing a part, depending on the coverage. It’s important to check the different coverage plans they provide before deciding on which plan is best for your home’s needs.

 

Pros and Cons of a Maytag Extended Plan

The best way to determine if a Maytag extended plan is best for your home is to first figure out what in your home needs coverage. Your home’s appliances can cost more than $20,000 in total, so it is worth it to have coverage that allows you to budget rather than pay a steep cost for an unexpected breakdown in your home. For example, replacing a furnace can cost thousands of dollars. 

A Maytag extended plan is only good for your Maytag appliances. If you know you are going to want coverage for your HVAC or plumbing, then a home warranty is likely the better option. Maytag appliances will often come with a limited warranty if they are new, but you will probably want to extend that coverage, knowing these appliances will break down from normal wear and tear. Again, how many Maytag appliances in your home need coverage? 

The biggest con for most homeowners when choosing a home warranty or any sort of home insurance is the cost. This can lead homeowners to choose cheap coverage. The cheapest plans are definitely not always the best. Often cheap plans will lead homeowners astray, believing they have coverage for a certain item in their home that is not covered by the plan. Always read the fine print, whether you go with a home warranty or a Maytag plan.

A Home Warranty v. A Manufacturer’s Warranty

A home warranty is comprehensive coverage, whereas a manufacturer’s warranty generally covers the failed part of a single appliance, and usually doesn’t cover the cost of labor for the repair. According to Maytag, all Maytag appliances come with a limited manufacturer’s warranty for one year and  an extended warranty if you choose to invest in one.

A home warranty, however, covers an array of home systems and appliances. A Liberty Home Guard home warranty will provide coverage for these systems:
