When you purchase any new Fisher & Paykel WashSmart clothes washer product for personal or consumer use you automatically receive a two year limited warranty covering parts and labor for servicing within the 48 mainland United States, Hawaii, Alaska, Washington DC and Canada. You also receive an additional eight year parts only limited warranty on the direct drive motor part only. This additional eight year limited warranty commences on the day following the expiry of the two year limited warranty and excludes the motor controller and labor. Products for use in Canada must be purchased through the Canadian distribution channel to ensure regulatory compliance.
To see if your product qualifies for the additional eight year direct drive motor part only limited warranty, refer to our website: www.fisherpaykel.com/smartdrive

Repair or at its option replace without cost to the owner either for material or labor any part of the product, the serial number of which appears on the product, which is found to be defective. In Alaska only, neither the two year limited warranty nor the additional eight year direct drive motor part only limited warranty include the cost of transport of your product and you must pay to ship the product to the service shop or the service technician’s travel to your home. If the product is installed in a motor vehicle, boat or similar mobile facility, you receive the same two year limited warranty, and, if your product qualifies, additional eight year direct drive motor part only limited warranty (excluding the motor controller and labor) but you must bring the vehicle, boat or mobile facility containing the product to the service shop at your expense or pay the service technician’s travel to the location of the product. For any product covered by the additional eight year direct drive motor part only limited warranty, Fisher & Paykel will also repair (as to parts) or, at its option, replace any direct drive motor (but not the motor controller) which is found to be defective within eight years following the expiry of the two year limited warranty. You will be responsible for any labour costs. If we are unable to repair a defective part of the product after a reasonable number of attempts, at our option we may replace the part or the product, or we may provide you a full refund of the purchase price of the product (not including installation or other charges).
These limited warranties extend to the original purchaser and any succeeding owner of the product for products purchased for ordinary single-family home use.

Some States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so this limit on implied warranties may not apply to you.
