Whirlpool® appliance warranties
Your Whirlpool® appliances are built to last, but since life happens, appliances are typically covered with a limited warranty for some peace of mind. And if you’re looking for information on your appliance’s warranty coverage, how long it lasts, and what it covers, you’ve come to the right place.
How do I check my Whirlpool® appliance warranty?
At the time of purchase, your appliance will have several pieces of literature, among them, information about the limited warranty. If you've misplaced or thrown out this sheet, you can look up your appliance’s model number, warranty and related information on the Whirlpool® Manuals & Literature Page.
How long is the Whirlpool® appliance warranty?
The Whirlpool® appliance limited warranty typically lasts a year from the date of purchase, but warranty length will depend on the appliance type.
What does the Whirlpool® appliance warranty cover?
Your Whirlpool® appliance warranty will cover most of Factory Specified Replacement Parts and repair labor to fix any defects in materials and workmanship that existed within one year of when your appliance was purchased.
If your appliance needs to be replaced, then the replacement product will be covered for the remaining time of when your original unit was purchased. However, your warranty can only be used if your appliance was installed, operated and maintained according to the instructions.

How do I submit a warranty claim?
Prior to submitting a claim, you’ll want to visit the Product Help page to find additional resources to troubleshoot your appliance as well as the Problem Solver section of the Use and Care Guide, since sometimes a little troubleshooting does the trick. But, if you still need service, you’ll need proof of purchase including retailer name and address, your unit’s model number and serial number, and a description of the problem before calling:
Whirlpool Customer eXperience Center
How do I schedule service and repairs covered under warranty?
If you’re ready for a service technician to repair your appliance under warranty, you can use the Schedule Service page, or you can call the Customer Care Number listed in the section above.
Does Whirlpool offer extended warranty plans?
Whirlpool offers Extended Service Plans that begin after the initial warranty period. These extended plans have no deductible, cover 100% of costs of Factory Certified Parts and Pre-Qualified Technicians and have guaranteed U.S.-based customer service.
You could potentially save money with these service plans, since plans start as low1 as $34.95 and may cover service and parts for major component issues like a faulty refrigerator compressor that can cost upwards of $800 to repair without a plan.2 If you have several Whirlpool® appliances you may be able to save by bundling, where you can cover multiple products under one service plan and a discount is applied to the total plan price. Payment plans are also available.
What’s the best way to care for my appliance and protect my warranty?
