seems to work fine so far so good' easy to install' looks great'plenty of hot water June 14, 2015
Good features at a good price. The only change I would make in this unit would be to angle the drain hose fitting to 3 o'clock. If the unit is installed in a drain pan it is difficult to attach a garden hose to the unit for drainage purposes / preventative maintenance. June 8, 2015
Polished, Stylish look This is the first time I've ever purchased a water heater but I've purchased countless Whirlpool appliances. Whirlpool is a reputable brand and I'm confident this waterheater will give many years of quality service. June 1, 2015
Easy to install. Very easy to install. As I've only have general knowledge of installing this type of product. May 24, 2015
disappointed!!!! I did not realize when I picked this up at Lowe's that it was made by the American Water Heater Company since it had the Whirlpool name. I bought a new water heater in 2008 and had to replace it in 2011 and now this is the third one mfg. by American. I was dealing with Benjamin Franklin Plumbing here in Indianapolis. I am 80 years old and obviously lasting much longer than the American Brand. Please tell me that I will not have to replace this and that it will last longer than I do. May 24, 2015
easily and quickly installed The water heater looks good and has excellent performance. Installation was quick and easy. The only negative is the drain valve does not fit well into a pan. May 22, 2015
Easy to install The Whirlpool water heater was in stock at Lowes, Sales assited with loading. It replaced a 25 year old 50 gal heater. Used 40 gal size due to faster recovery for newer heaters. It fit in the space a, closet in my home. Installation was easy. May 16, 2015
Hot water heater is new but so far so good... easy install and works wonderfully well This heater is brand new and replace a tankless hot water heater that absolutely was a waste of money, time and frustration ... Came back to an electric heater and after reading previous reviews i chose this one.... and so far so good... I turn on the hot water and I get hot water... immediately... its quiet and should be efficient.... May 14, 2015
I just installed it ! I "hope" it is alright ?!? I just installed and connected it ! Being a licensed plumber for 26 years in Texas, I have installed my share. It's full, wired in and (gulp) programmed. Why cant we just have a fixture the heats water when it is supposed to ? I have this one connected to a timer to heat water when we need it and not 24-7. We will see how this works. June 23, 2015
This product handles our hot water greatly. We are very pleased with the efficiency of this water heater. We had hot water soon after the installation. We had bathed and washed three loads of clothes that afternoon. Just two of us reside here. May 1, 2015
