Clothes Dryer FAQs

Yes, our ShieldGold and ShieldPlatinum plans cover the parts and components of clothes dryers. 

We cover all components and parts of clothes dryers. The ShieldGold plan covers up to $2,000 for each covered appliance. The ShieldPlatinum plan covers up to $4,000 for each covered appliance. And if we can’t repair the covered item, we’ll replace it subject to the limitations and exclusions in your plan agreement. See the page above or the plan agreement for more detailed coverage information.

If we can’t repair your covered dryer, we’ll replace it subject to the limitations and exclusions in your plan agreement and remove the defective item.

We will match the replacement as similarly as possible to the malfunctioned dryer in terms of features, capacity, and efficiency. However, we cannot guarantee that we can match the exact dimensions, brand, or color. You can also opt for a payout in the amount of a similar model so you can upgrade your appliance and use our Appliance Discount Program. Our exclusive discounts will help your dollars go further.

You can place your first service request 30 days after you sign up for your plan. Service requests can easily be placed 24/7 online via MyAccount or by calling 1-888-691-2854 during standard business hours to request service.

Our best home warranty plan is the one that’s right for you and your home. The ShieldSilver plan covers the parts and components of your must-have systems like your heating and cooling, plumbing, and electrical systems. ShieldGold covers all of the above plus your laundry and kitchen appliances. And with ShieldPlatinum, you get coverage for just about everything: parts of home systems and appliances, plus premium features like roof leak repair coverage, unlimited AC refrigerant, and one free HVAC Tune-up per agreement term. No two homes are the same, and that’s why we have options – so you can find the plan that fits your needs. Please review the Sample Plan Agreement for specific coverage details.
