Maytag dishwasher warranties give you more coverage than you might find with other brands. Though the terms can feel a little tight for some, Maytag's extended warranty gives you more coverage and extra perks, adding a layer of protection to your purchase.


Key insights

  • Maytag dishwashers have a one-year parts and labor warranty.
  • Some critical parts, such as the stainless steel tub, are covered for 10 years.
  • The company offers a service plan that extends parts and labor coverage for up to five years for an additional cost.

Maytag dishwasher warranty coverage and plans

Maytag offers two types of warranties for its dishwashers: a one-year limited warranty for parts and labor and a limited 10-year warranty that covers the stainless steel tub, nylon racks and chopper.

Maytag also offers Maytag service plans, which extend protection for parts and labor for up to five years. In addition to the extended time, Maytag will replace your dishwasher if it can’t be fixed.

Limits and exclusions

There are a few things that can void your dishwasher's warranty. Your claim may not be accepted if:

  • The model or serial numbers are missing.
  • The damage is from something other than regular wear and tear.
  • The claim is for scratches or rust.
  • The dishwasher needs a replacement or repair of some smaller parts.
  • You need the claim to cover the costs for pick-up and delivery of your dishwasher if it needs to go to a repair shop.

Maytag dishwasher warranty cost

When you buy a Maytag dishwasher, the cost of the initial warranty is included in the price. If you're considering extra security, the Maytag Service Plan is an option worth considering. On average, a year's coverage under this plan costs around $46.

How to file a claim for your Maytag dishwasher

You can file a Maytag warranty claim using two different methods. You can go to the Service & Support Owners Center page and file a claim, or you can call the customer service number at 800-344-1274. To file the claim, you’ll need your receipt as proof of purchase, the model and the serial number. Your model and serial number will be on a sticker located:

  • Behind the access panel on gas dishwashers
  • Inside the door

Maytag dishwasher warranty vs. home warranty alternatives

Home warranties are similar to extended warranties, though they typically activate after the manufacturer warranty expires. Home warranties also cover other home systems and appliances in your home, such as refrigerators, washers and dryers.

With a home warranty, you pay a yearly or monthly fee and a deductible for each claim. Deductibles are typically less than the cost of repairs. Most dishwasher repairs cost between $100 to $200, while the deductible is usually under $100.
