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.

Start button issue

Nancyhh 4/23/2019

I bought it in Costco 2017, the start button sometimes was good, sometimes didn't work, but today it totally died. From the first month I started to use it, the plastic film covered on the start button and cancel button were broken, now almost all the film on the buttons are broken. My first microwave is still work well, it's Panasonic 20 years ago. Unfortunately, this whirlpool microwave is beyond the Costco 2-year-warranty only 1 month. The customer sevice represenative said he countertop microwaves were not repairable items. I have to recycle it.

Very Disappointing

Sophie23 11/6/2018

bought online. chose Whirlpool because my over the counter Whirlpool is lovely, and because other brands have higher house fire incidents. This countertop product is poorly designed, clunky, sharp corners. Keypad panel is hard to read, small print, on and off difficult to make sense of. Very industrial, cheap, clunky. Now when I turn it on it makes a loud roaring sound the first 15-20 seconds, then subsides into the usual microwave hum. I really hate having it in my kitchen.
