Items covered under a Maytag warranty depend on the type of product the warranty is attached to and when it was produced. All 2014 and later models of Maytag appliances come with a 10-year warranty on certain parts and components, while Maytag HVAC products feature a 12-year warranty on parts.
Most Maytag warranties require the owners to register their products in order to qualify for them. Many types of Maytag appliances, including refrigerators, dishwashers, compactors, wall ovens and microwaves, feature a one-year limited parts and labor warranty. This warranty usually covers all functional components.
After the first year, the warranty only covers specific components. The extended warranty for Maytag refrigerators is limited to the unit's compressor, while the warranty for Maytag washers and dryers covers the drive motor and basket or drum. The extended warranty for Maytag wall ovens covers the burners, cavity and the bake and broil elements, while only the magnetron and drive motor are covered for microwaves.
All Maytag warranties only apply to the original owner, and it is necessary to show the original proof of purchase to show that the unit is still under warranty. In addition, all repairs must be performed by a Maytag authorized service technician.
