Works well Had it installed a month ago with a whirlpool water softener. It works well so far and I can really feel a difference in the softener. June 30, 2015
easy install, reasonable price. This is the second water heater from Whirlpool. The previous one was 40 gal like this in features and lasted 10 years. June 30, 2015
A great water heater. Removal of the old and installation of the new went smoothly as per the "Installation Instructions". The instructions are easy to follow and are well written June 18, 2015
Easy to install with basic tools. Good water heater for the basic model, but slightly overpriced. Installed fast. No complaints. Would recommend it for a basic replacement. June 12, 2015
Easy to use At this time the product works great...it was easy to install...no problems!! It does everything it said it would do and it was affordably priced June 7, 2015
2nd one The tank leaked on the previous heater after only 2 1/2 years. your customer service dept was sympathetic and gave me a control # for a new one. I guess this can happen now and then. I had to do another installation and I have damage to the wall from the leak, I know that it's my problem. All in all a good product. The only negative is the heater's drain valve (not much quality.

Very easy to install Went in like a dream and had hot water in just 2hrs. June 4, 2015
Eeasy installation Very easy to install . Everything went smoothly. Won't know about performance until I've had it awhile. Quality appearance June 3, 2015
Design flaws are apparent. On top of unit where nipples attach, there should be something hex to wrench against. Also, the top should slope away from electrical to reduce shock from water leaks. The drain at bottom should be a brass fixture too! There's a few suggestions. Thanks Mike June 3, 2015
it was what I needed The service at Lowe's buying the water heater was great and the man they had put it in did a great job. My husband always took care of things like that but since he passed away a few years ago I am now having to take care of everything. Lowe's was there to help. June 29, 2015
