A new washer usually comes with a manufacturer warranty. Some larger home improvement stores such as Lowes offer customers the option to purchase an extended warranty of up to three years. Warranty terms can vary a lot, so reading terms carefully is important before signing any contract.
Warranty options can vary a lot depending on the brand of the washer purchased. Manufacturers may have private extended warranty plans that can be purchased. This information should be included with any manuals or information that comes with your new washer. Whirlpool offers extended protection plans that customers can apply for online at whirlpoolextendedserviceplans.com.
