Every appliance, even the best brands, will eventually break down or stop working altogether. It’s possible that your refrigerator, stove, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, freezer or other home appliance is covered under warranty, which can help save you money.
Important to note:
If you attempt an appliance repair yourself while your appliance is under warranty, you may void your warranty or coverage.
Typical Warranty Periods – Appliance Retailer or Manufacture
If your appliance breaks down within 30 days of purchase, you can be certain it’s still under warranty. It’s possible that the appliance retailer you purchased from may accept an exchange or return. You will need to call and ask about the store’s return policy or check the back/bottom of your receipt for possible more info.
If you are past the retailer’s return period, it’s possible the manufacturer will offer a warranty of their own. This time frame is usually 1-2 years. Contact your brand’s appliance manufacture for detailed information.
Contact the Retailer
Most appliance purchases are made on credit cards. This makes the transaction more easily traceable.
You can try contacting the retailer you purchased from for a copy of your original transaction. Many retailers also offer an extended warranty or return period that can be purchased in addition to your new appliance. Did you purchase an extended warranty plan?
Look into Your Credit Card’s Consumer Protection Package
Did you purchase your new appliance with a credit card? Another helpful perk if you did is that many credit card companies offer free extended coverage past the manufacturer’s warranty period as part of their ‘consumer protection package’. Contact your credit card company to see if this applies to you or your purchases.
Tip: It can be helpful to have all appliance information stored in the same location, that way when problems arise, you won’t be stressed finding receipts.
