Are Appliance Extended Warranties worth It?

Some say it’s not worth the extra cost, if you buy a washing machine for $400.00, it’s not worth the $150.00 on an extended warranty. 20 years ago extended warranties may not have been recommended. Appliances are built a little differently than they used to be, some Fridges, Ranges and Washer/Dryers cost over $3000.00, and the parts are so expensive because newer units all have computer boards. It could cost $200 to $300 for the parts, and it seems that energy-efficient machine break down more easily. Most service calls on fridges range from $200 - $500. One call and you have made up the price of the warranty. If the appliance cost $800 or more, it may be very well worth it. Often if you do not use your warranty, the cost of the warranty could be used towards certain merchandise as a credit.

August 2021

From microwaves, coffee makers and toasters to fridges and beyond, Canadian stores selling appliances are reporting a record shortage of both inventory and parts due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s a domino effect of surging demand and supply chain problems, resulting in mounting backorders. Several manufacturers say they are working hard to crank out appliances to meet the rising demand, which are hampered by scaled back operations and pandemic protocols. Parts & service will face particularly longer wait times into the next year because of changing market dynamics.
For customers, that means limited selection of all items in stock for major appliances well to the end of 2021. Several appliance stores in Alberta are now focusing on only restocking their most popular items.
At Whirlpool most appliance factories and warehouses in the United States and abroad are operating at 50% capacity because of the pandemic.
We are not over the hump yet, the Association of Home Appliances Manufactures of Canada says several brands have now begun to make headway through backorders, but still could be bad for Fall sales and Black Friday.
At the end of the day, people just need to be understanding and patient during this time.
