Continental extends ContinentalCare vended washer warranty

Oshkosh, Wis.—Continental Girbau Inc. recently enhanced its manufacturer’s warranty on all vended front-load washers, including ExpressWash, MG-Series, M-Series and L-Series Washer-Extractors. ContinentalCare™ now includes a 10-year key component warranty, 4-year bearing labor warranty, and 3-year limited parts warranty on all other parts, according to Joel Jorgensen, Continental vice president.

Specifically, Continental now covers all labor expenses associated with the replacement of bearings and bearing seals, which fail as a result of a defect in material or workmanship, for a period of four years. This is in addition to Continental’s longstanding warranty to repair or replace any part that fails as a result of a defect in material or workmanship for three years after the date of installation. Key components, including the inner cylinder, frame assembly, bearings and bearing seals, are also covered for replacement and/or repair for 10 years.

“ContinentalCare™ is the best warranty coverage in the industry because our products are proven performers in the vended marketplace,” said Jorgensen. “No other manufacturer offers a bearing labor warranty that is this extensive.”
