6 Gallon Electric Water Heater - E1F6US017V 120V
GOOD LITTLE WATER HEATER
SO FAR SO GOOD. THIS WAS INSTALLED IN A BATHROOM OFF MY WOOD SHOP & WIFE'S POTTERY ROOM. WE'D HAD A STANDARD 40 GAL GAS HOT WATER HEATER THAT KEPT GOING THRU GAS VALVES & THERMOCOUPLES - SEALED UNITS JUST DON'T HOLD UP NOW. GAVE UP ON GAS & DIDN'T WANT TO INSTALL A 240 VOLT 30 AMP FULL SIZE HEATER. THOUGHT I'D GIVE THIS A TRY. IT INSTALLED SUPER EASY, I PUT IT UP ON A SHORT RAISED WOOD PLATFORM THAT I BUILT. THE WIFE INSTALLED THE ELECTRIC PORTION - MADE UP A HEAVY DUTY 12 GA CORD & CAP, PLUGGED INTO THE DEDICATED CIRCUIT FOR WASHER THAT ISN'T BEING USED ANYMORE. HEATED UP WITHIN 30 MIN OR SO FROM BEGINNING. NICE TO HAVE HOT WATER WITHOUT A LOT OF EXTRA WORK TO INSTALL. RECOMMEND ANYWHERE YOU WANT HOT WATER AT THE SOURCE - SHORT RUNS. WE'LL SEE HOW LONG THIS HOLDS UP.

Easy installation and start up
I found this product easy to install and it heated the water within 10-minutes of installation!!! Nice water heater at a fair price.

Works OK but poor reliability
Bought one of this in 2010 and it lasted less than 4 years before rusting out and leaking. Exchanged it under warranty at my local home improvement store. This heater certainly doesn't live up to what I thought were Whirlpool's high quality standards.

Good under sink size
Fits easily under the kitchen sink cabinets. Provides adequate hot water for washing dishes, dishwasher, etc. Easy to use top access connections for water and electric. Make sure to use a pan... my first unit leaked from the lower side connection.

Installed easily; heats well
Acquired heater to overcome long waits for hot water because of long feed line. Does the job we expected.

Second time around.
Bought small heater to fit under sink and out of sight in garage. Professionally installed but found leaking after 2 months. Reinstalled attempting to fix leaks. One week later leaking again and did reinstallment again. Would not stop leaking so returned for a new unit. Not leaking at this time and hopefully be happy with this one.

The product works great
Works great, I am pleased to have installed this heater. We have an on demand and it took for ever to get to the kitched sink. We now have hot water fast!!!
