I've never unplugged any of my appliances during a thunderstorm and they've been just fine.

You could unplug it but you might forget to plug your refrigerator back in and then the food would spoil.

I would just unplug other electronics such as computer, internet modem, wifi router, television etc during a thunderstorm.

All the other major appliances should be just fine left plugged in during a thunderstorm.
