    Does the 6 year warranty cover labor costs to fix a defect?
    or is it a parts-only warranty, and owner pays outta pocket for labor?

    WHAT WILL WE NOT DO?
    We will not:
    1. Repair or replace any water heater, or part, subject to conditions outlined in “What Does This Limited Warranty Not Cover?”
    2. Reimburse any costs associated with repair and/or replacement.
    3. Replace and/or repair any water heater without complete model/serial number.
    4. Replace any water heater without prior receipt of actual rating plate from appliance.

    Looks like parts only.

    Parts only, but you must call them numerous times to stand by their warranty.

    Some folks who want to keep fixing an old WH may pay more than a new WH in the long run in labor. Makes no sense to me.

    If you are not the "pest" type, you will give up and buy a new WH.

    Who do you deal with? I take the name plate to my wholesaler and get a new water heater, IMMEDIATELY. If the heater fails within the first year, the PLUMBER will get a check for labor from the B/W, usually about $100.00.
