Washing Machine Warranty Coverage

You depend on your washing machine to keep your clothes looking good and your household running smoothly. We can help ensure your washer is running smoothly, too, with coverage for its essential parts and components. When you discover a covered problem with your washer, you can simply call American Home Shield. Clothes washers are covered in our ShieldGold and ShieldPlatinum plans along with other Appliances and Home Systems.

American Home Shield will pay up to $2,000 per covered appliance ($4,000 with ShieldPlatinum plan) for access, diagnosis, and repair/replacement of any covered appliance.

Yes, our ShieldGold™ and ShieldPlatinum™ plans cover clothes washers and dryers. 

We cover all components and parts of clothes washers. The ShieldGold™ plan covers up to $2,000 for each covered appliance. The ShieldPlatinum™ plan covers up to $4,000 for each covered appliance.

About 10 years, but they can go up to 25 years (as boasted by certain appliance brands themselves). However, all clothes washers are different, so life expectancy can vary.  

Our standard contract term is 1 year and can be renewed upon expiration. There is a 30-day waiting period before you can make service requests and use your home warranty plan. 

Yes, if we can’t fix it, we’ll replace it. Plus, we’ll cover the cost to remove the defective appliance. 

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

Once your coverage begins (30 days after you purchase your new home warranty plan) you can request service 24/7 online or call 1-888-691-2854 during standard business hours to request service.
