Lowe’s Appliance Extended Warranty PLANS

The company offers two plans that cover a range of major appliances and systems at pocket-friendly prices. Lowe's extended warranty coverage begins when the manufacturer's warranty expires and last up to 5 years.

1. Lowe's Extended Protection Plans - The plan covers all significant appliances regardless of their prices, and products with a retail cost less or up to $300. The plan covers all parts and labor costs involved in fixing device issues that arise due to functional part failures.

2. Lowe's Replacement Plans - This plan covers products with a retail cost that is not more than $300. The plan comes into effect after the manufacturer's warranty expiration and includes all devices except water heaters and few other major appliances.

How Much Does A Lowe's Plan Cost?

Lowe's warranties cover a wide range of major appliances. Their 3-year plans range from $29.97 to $179.97. The 5-year plan costs $49.97 to $294.97.

The plans cover a wide range of appliances, including: Refrigerators, Ranges, Dishwasher, Over-the-Range Microwaves, Trash Compactors, Freezers, Washing Machines, Dryers, Wall Ovens, and Range Hoods.

Lowe’s Appliance Extended Warranty CLAIMS

Lowe's, committed to customer satisfaction, offers services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If customers require service, they can call the Plan Administrator at 1-888-77LOWES (56937), who authorizes repairs and arranges for service.

The professionals at Lowe's will go the extra mile to complete service at the earliest. However, in situations like manufacturer's parts delay, Gods, act, or shipping to regional service facilities, the service may be delayed. If there is an emergency, the company will give priority to such services. Note that Lowe's offers emergency services at no extra charge.

What Important Aspects Are Mentioned In Lowe's Contracts?

Lowe's extended warranty plans protect home devices only from normal wear and tear. It excludes failures resulting from improper maintenance, intentional or accidental damage, abuse, a consumable parts failure, misuse, theft or loss, or unauthorized repair.

For all plans except water heater and replacement plans, the term starts on the product's purchase date, or delivery or installation date, whichever is later. If multiple products (that are bundled) are purchased, the company will cover all of them in a multiple item plan. If a product is powered electrically, this Lowe's Protection Plan will cover all parts and labor if the product fails due to a power surge.

Lowe's allows customers to cancel their plan within the 30 days from the purchase date by contacting the Plan Administrator. The company will refund 100% of the price, less the actual total cost of a service (if any), coverages or benefits, labor, replacements, payments, parts, and reimbursements received under the plan.

The customer can also cancel their Lowe's warranty plan after 30 days from the purchase date by contacting the Plan Administrator. But they will only receive a pro-rata refund of the price, less the actual cost of a service (if any), labor, reimbursements, payments, parts, coverages, benefits, and replacements received under the plan.

The customers can also transfer this plan during the coverage term, but they should call or write to the Plan Administrator with the plan number, new owner's contact information, and transfer date.

LOWE’S APPLIANCE EXTENDED WARRANTY FAQs

Does Lowe replace devices if they cannot repair them?

If Lowe's determines that the device is beyond repair, the company may offer new, rebuilt, or refurbished items with similar or equal features and functionality as the original product. If the company pays for the non-repairable device or provides a replacement, you will no longer have authority on non-repairable devices.

How long does Lowe's take to repair devices?

Lowe's usually repairs services within 14 days. However, if they cannot repair within their given timeline, the company will pay a $50 one-time payment over the contract period. If the plan includes onsite pick-up or service, the turnaround time begins when you contact the Plan Administrator and report the issue. If you cannot get the first available appointment, the turnaround time begins at the first service visit. If your contract does not include onsite pick-up or service, the turnaround time begins once the product has been delivered to the location. This clause does not apply to freezers or refrigerators.

Does Lowe's cover built-in dishwasher?

Yes, Lowe's covers built-in dishwashers. The company covers the appliance against everyday wear and tear as well as power surges. The coverage will begin immediately after the manufacturer's warranty expiration and will last up to five years.

Does Lowe's cover outdoor power equipment?

Yes, Lowe's covers outdoor power equipment. Some of them include portable generators, trimmers, log splitters, pressure washers, edgers, snowblowers, riding mowers, chainsaws, and tillers.

Will Lowe's cover reinstallation labor charges?

Yes, Lowe's covers reinstallation labor charges but only for some products. If your water softener or filtration is not repairable and needs to be replaced, the company will cover professional reinstallation charges.

Please do not pay a penny for lowes extended warrenty and save yourself a lot of frustration and trouble just go somewhere else to purchase items!! My washer stopped draining, they were quick to send someone out to diagnose the issue and the technician said the part would be shipped to my house, he would be back to put the part in on the 12th. It is now the 12th (13 days after the first visit), I call to see what time my appt was bc there has been absolutely NO communication. They then proceed to tell me that it would take 21 business days to even ship. Then once I get the part I could be given an appt. Absolutely none of this was said when the technician was at my house. The agent then said I could call the warrenty company and see if they could find a different company that could get the part shipped to me sooner, the number he gave me was either incorrect or a fake number. I called back to get the correct number just to have the next agent hang up on me because her connection was bad and she never called me back. I call for a 3rd time, mind you each time I am calling back I have to wait 30 mins for someone to call me back, just for them to tell me the exact same thing with no resolution other than I have to wait for another 2 weeks and hope the part ships. I asked for a supervisor which then told me the same thing and kept speaking over me and interrupting me when I would try to speak. I then asked for her supervisor, she told me she was the supervisor. I told her I wanted to speak to HER supervisor and then she changed her story to there were no managers there for me to speak with. If you have made it this far in my review I beg of you DO NOT BUY ANY APPLIANCES FROM LOWES OR THEIR EXTENDED WARRANTY!! I paid hundreds of dollars for this when I bought my washer and dryer from them and this is what my money has bought for me. ..View less

Lowes absolutely will not answer the repair line. They just leave you on hold until you give up. My S****** fridge is leaking water all over my kitchen floor and even though its under a service contract with Lowes I guess Im going to just have to fix it out of my pocket. Complete scam.

Now the Visa card is due and dont have money to pay it as they dont take Lowes Gift cards. The plan is from almost 5 years ago no place on the contract did it say refunds ONLY if Lowes Refund Cards (Gift cards), they do say this now, but that is for the new plans, we got the 4 year old Warranty plan. Sounds like a Class Action Law Suite is needed here. ..View less

I gave them the model number again and asked how they knew which parts to order since they hadn't even been out yet. They FINALLY got the parts in 4 weeks later, scheduled an appointment another week later and finally came to the house today. The guy spent less than 5 minutes, started a cycle and said he needed to order a board. "They will call when the part comes in to schedule another appointment." Are you even kidding me?! I can't hire someone to fix it on my own because it will void my warranty. Beyond frustrated. AND as a side nite- if I need 2 new pumps and a board in less than 2 years- how about replacing the whole unit?! ..View less

Fist, it took 8 weeks to get a simple ice maker repaired on my LG refrigerator. Now I have been waiting 2 weeks to get my Whirlpool Washing Machine fixed they keep telling me that they are for apart from Whirlpool and that they don't know when the part will be available. Lowes keeps telling me that I will just have to wait for the part.

Parts came in but Diamond Factory Repair could not schedule an appointment for a week. In the meantime I was having a party with 60 guests making food prep & storage very difficult! In light of the fact that it was their mistake, they would not try to expedite my service appointment. Very disappointed and will not buy another appliance at Lowe’s. ..View less

Buying this warranty was a horrible decision just like their customer service. Washing machine has been out. We've been waiting 3 weeks with no resolution, no communication from their end at all. I have to call and be on hold for hours at a time and they will not commit to a date when this will be resolved. Last time I ever shop Lowes.
