Frigidaire dishwashers typically come with a one-year limited warranty. Customers can purchase an extended warranty to lengthen the warranty time and add some perks, such as quick repairs. Extended warranties are available for one, three or five years and range from around $50 to $200.


Key insights

  • Frigidaire dishwashers typically have a one-year limited warranty.
  • The Total Appliance Protection plan can extend the dishwasher’s warranty for up to five years.
  • A Frigidaire technician must complete repairs.

Frigidaire dishwasher warranty coverage and plans

Frigidaire dishwasher warranties typically last for one year. This may vary based on the model you purchase, so check the “Dishwasher Use & Care” booklet that came with your dishwasher for specific warranty details. The limited warranty includes coverage for repairing or replacing defective materials and workmanship.

The Total Appliance Protection plan is Frigidaire’s extended warranty program. The plan offers one-, two-, three- or five-year terms. The company doesn’t list any additional perks of signing up for the extended warranty other than “quick service.”

With both the one-year limited warranty and the Total Appliance Protection plan, you must use a Frigidaire-approved technician for any repairs.

Limits and exclusions

Frigidaire’s dishwasher warranty terms have many limitations and exclusions that can prevent you from getting the repair you need. The warranty doesn’t cover:

  • Units with ownership that transferred to someone outside the U.S. or Canada
  • Appliances without the original serial numbers
  • Rusty dishwashers
  • Scratches
  • Repairs or replacement of light bulbs, air filters, water filters, knobs and handles
  • Surcharges for after-hour, weekend or holiday service calls
  • Mileage expenses for service calls

Frigidaire dishwasher warranty discounts

If you bundle multiple appliances, you can get a 10% discount on the Total Appliance Protection plan.

How to register a Frigidaire dishwasher warranty

You’ll need a few things before you can register your Frigidaire dishwasher. Have your receipt (to find the date of purchase), the model and the serial number handy before you start. You can find the model and serial number on the side of the dishwasher’s door (when it’s open) or along the right side of the tub.

Once you’ve gathered the information, you’re ready to register. You can either fill out and mail the registration card that came with your dishwasher or fill out the online registration form.

Frigidaire dishwasher warranty cost

While Frigidaire’s limited warranty comes with your new dishwasher, the Total Appliance Protection plan’s cost varies depending on the type of dishwasher you purchased and the time you bought it.

To get a quote, you must enter the dishwasher type, price and the date you bought it on the Total Appliance Protection plan site. We were quoted around $57 for one year of coverage for a new, built-in dishwasher that costs $500, while the five-year plan cost $196. The plans are available for one year, three years or five years.

How to file a claim for your Frigidaire dishwasher

To file a claim for your Frigidaire dishwasher, call the customer service help line at 800-374-4432. This number is for limited warranties and extended warranties.

Frigidaire dishwasher warranty vs. home warranty alternatives

A dishwasher can last up to 10 years, and repairs can cost an average of $100 to $200 or more. Even with an extended warranty, you must pay for any repairs that need to be made after five years. Getting a home warranty to cover any repairs after your appliance warranty expires is often a good idea.

Home warranties cover repairs well beyond the warranty, and they also cover a wide range of appliances and systems in your home. It’s important to note that you will need to pay a deductible before each repair, though.
