The specific parts that are covered under the warranty for a Whirlpool dryer vary from model to model. Most Whirlpool dryers come with a one-year limited parts and labor warranty, as of 2015, which covers all parts against any defects in workmanship or materials.
Many older models of Whirlpool dryers also feature additional warranties. Some earlier models of Whirlpool Duet electronic gas dryers, such as Model GGW9260, feature a two-year limited parts warranty on the unit's electronic control board and a five-year limited parts warranty on the dryer's porcelain top. This warranty states that Whirlpool must cover the cost of replacing the porcelain top should it chip or rust due to a workmanship or materials defect.
The full details of the warranty are available in the product's owner's manual or warranty information. Both documents are available on the Whirlpool website for most of its various dryer models. In order to obtain warranty service, it is necessary to call the Whirlpool Customer Interaction Center at 1-800-253-1301. When scheduling warranty service, it is necessary to provide the original proof of purchase or installation to verify that the dryer is still under warranty. GE dryer warranties are only valid for the original owner and only for products used within the United States.
