Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Worst Fridge Ever! Will never buy Whirlpool Again

Jamers73 6/21/2018

Just as the previous reviewer stated this fridge is the worst! We did so much research and found that whirlpool was the number One highest rated brand. We went with this fridge for all its features and how nice it looked. Well not even a year and the water dispenser was causing havic. Some days it would work, others it wouldn't . Then some days it would Keeping running water even when it's wasn't pressed to get water. We called whirlpool and they told us to unplug the unit and see if that helped. It did for a while. Now it is back to doing it on and off. We are also having issues with the ice maker. It stopped making ice. We troubleshooted it and even unplugged it. It worked for a day and then stopped again. Now that it doesn't work at all. I have owned other brands and even the GE brand we had that we hated never gave us this problem. I am saddened because we thought we were getting a solid American built fridge. Never again will I buy whirlpool
