Clothes Dryer warranty coverage

Dryers are a laundry day mainstay in most households, but all that tumbling and heat means they can really take a beating. The average dryer lasts for about 8 to 12 years. Luckily, the protection you need to keep your dryer spinning away is right here. Rather than panicking when you discover a covered problem with your dryer, you can simply place a service request online or call American Home Shield®.

American Home Shield will pay up to $4,000 per covered appliance ($7,000 with ShieldComplete℠ plan) for access, diagnosis, and repair/replacement per the limitations and exclusions in your plan agreement.

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 washer 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 pay out in the amount of a similar model so you can upgrade your appliance and use our Appliance Discount Program. Our member exclusive discounts will help your dollars go further.

You can place your first service request once your coverage begins on the day of closing. 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.

It's an annual home warranty plan that helps with the cost and hassle when parts of your home systems and appliances break down. Our real estate-specific plans are offered to both home buyers and sellers and coverage begins immediately. You will also get protection for things other home warranties might not cover, like old home systems and appliances, insufficient maintenance, improper installations or repairs, mismatched HVAC systems in certain circumstances, and more.
