Excellent basic hot water heater I searched various reviews for hot water heaters and Whirlpool was consistently rated very high as compared to other brands. As a DIY homeowner, I found this water heater extremely easy to install. Once everything was hooked up it was just a short while before I had a good supply of hot water. I look forward to many years of reliable operation. September 10, 2014
Easy to install This is a replacement for an old heater that had begun to leak. I easily went into the old space and was easily connected to the existing plumbing and electrical service. September 10, 2014
Easy to install, looks good, and saves on electric bill. Easy to install, looks good, and saves on electric bill. September 8, 2014
This product works well This heater was easy to install and does what I expect September 5, 2014
2" higher than other 50 gal tank I had posed a problem Had problems with installation being this unit was 2 inches higher than my older unit and my other unit had the pressure relief valve on top instead of the front making it some what harder to plumb back to the drain. Other than that I had no major problems and made the installation in approximately 2 hours. September 4, 2014
good product so far so good put in a week ago easy to install on this new installation old heater was in oil burner water pressure great waters hot we shall see August 30, 2014
Good working unit I replaced basically the same model that was originally installed over 10 years ago. I am looking forward to at least another 10 years of performance from this unit. August 29, 2014
3rd time around and not by choice purchased this model the end of 2006, in january 2011 heating element went out. Was replaced under warranty then again in august 2011 element goes out again this time being told to replace the heater which was also covered under warranty however after getting the new heater it voided the warranty. That heater only lasted 3 years almost to the date and started leaking around the element casing causing my basement to flood. After taking the cover for the element off the element was all charcoaled and looked as though it had caught fire. Unfortunately our local hardware store only stocks whirlpool and because of having children in the home we did not have time to wait so this is now our 3rd heater in 8 years. Do not recommend this product to anyone. August 27, 2014
Very good Recently bought this home. Replace old Whirlpool water heater installed in November 2007 with new Whirlpool water heater. Same size and style. the cost was in our price line. August 26, 2014
Was worth the money and easy to install 10 minute install time and is very easy to install. August 21, 2014
