Is an LG Washer and Dryer Protection Plan Worth It?

LG is a very popular home appliance manufacturer. They stock homes with everything from refrigerators to washers and dryers. LG makes reliable electronics, however, no appliance is impervious to mechanical damage. And when a homeowner is left without a necessary device like a washer or dryer, it can make daily chores a hassle. That’s why we recommend protecting every LG washer and dryer with a protection plan.

LG Washer and Dryer Limited Warranty

Before considering and shopping for an extended warranted or protection plan for your LG laundry machines, make sure you are familiar with the terms of your limited warranty from the manufacturer. The limited warranty period for LG dryers and washers is one year for labor and parts. Within that year, LG will cover any mechanical damage caused by normal use. However, it will not cover damage due to accidents, faulty or leaky pipes, interrupted or inadequate electricity, etc.
The exception to this limited warranty is that LG will cover the steel drum price for three years from purchase date and Direct Drive Motor for ten years from purchase date. However, these exceptions will only cover the cost of parts and not any labor required to replace them. Figuring out how to fix it yourself or who to hire could be a major and time-intensive hassle!

Benefits of longer Appliance Protection Plan

A protection plan extends the coverage from the limited warranty. So instead of only one year of coverage, you could purchase coverage for a few extra years. To start, you’ll have to pay for coverage. In addition, some plans may have a deductible, but you won’t have to worry about paying full price for a repair or replacement if your LG washer or dryer breaks.
Some plans will also supplement the limited warranty. For example, suppose your washer breaks two years after purchase, and the repair requires a new steel drum. Under the limited warranty, LG will pay to replace the steel drum. But you’ll be responsible for any labor the repair requires. With an extended warranty plan, LG will pay for the steel drum, and your extended warranty will cover the labor cost.
Additionally, an appliance protection plan can save you time, stress, and money. Many protection plan providers can help you identify who to contact to schedule an in-home repair. Instead of researching and finding a repair technician on your own, work with a protection plan company to simplify the repair process.

Cons of an LG Washer and Dryer Protection Plan

With the cost-saving, time-saving, and stress-saving benefits, there’s no real downside to purchasing an protection plan for your LG washer or dryer. The only “con” would be if you are lucky and never have to make a claim within your protected period. However, most people find that the peace of mind from knowing their appliances are protected in case something breaks is worth paying the protection plan fee.


An extended warranty or protection plan for your LG dryer and washer is absolutely worth it. A good plan can save you money on repair and replacement fees, extend the lifespan of your product, and save time and stress in case your product does break.
However, not buying a protection plan is a risk. Perhaps you’ll get lucky, and your appliance won’t break or malfunction. However, most people find it’s best to be prepared just in case. If your washer or dryer breaks and it’s not covered under a plan, you will pay a lot more to repair or replace it than it would cost to purchase protection.
