The standard warranty period for appliances purchased in a Lowe's store is one year; this is the warranty provided by the manufacturer at purchase. Any additional or extended warranties require a separate purchase, and vary based on the product.
The extended protection policies offered by Lowe's for appliance purchases come with either a three or five year warranty. This policy starts the day the appliance is purchased, and can include coverage that is not offered by the manufacturer's warranty. The price for the extended protection plan varies based on the policy chosen and the purchase amount of the appliance, ranging from $59.97 to $149.97 as of February 2015.
