excellent water heater in all respects
Installment was a breeze. This was a replacement for the same model which lasted just over 12 years with no problems. this is my third Whirlpool in the past 35 years. all around value in all aspects is exceptional. this unit was purchased at Lowes.

Nice looking unit
I know no one looks at the water heater once it's installed, until it breaks, but it is a nice looking unit. Easy to install and runs silently. Been in 5 days now and works great.

Seems like avery good product
Picked the unit up at Lowes, It was packaged well, instructions were very easy to understand, installation was a breeze, heater looks very good, nice display which is easy to read and change settings, I like the lock portion on the display so kids aren't able to change the settings. Overall I am very pleased with the heater, although I haven't had it long enough to tell much about the operation and longivity, but so far so good. This is my second whirlpool in a year, as I have two installed in my house, my first one is working like a charm. Thanks for a good product

looks great, and will save electricity, and easy to use
We think it was simple to install, and is easy to use, and should reduce electricity consumption

this product has great features, I am impressed
Just had this model installed so I don't exactly how much I will be saving but I love the fact that I control the programming and can put in vacation mode when I am away.

Good value if it is reliable in the future. Bought on sale at 20% off.
Only problem encountered was the running of the drain line for the emergency relief valve since most older tanks had the relief valve on the top rather than the front of tank, Since the drain must run downhill front the relief valve, this is an issue if the tank is installed in an area that would cause flooding if the tank failed. If the tank is installed near a floor drain or in an unfinished garage, this isn't an issue. Only time will tell if the extra cost for the 12 year warranty is worth it.

So far so good
Having abandoned tankless water heaters(should be called thankless water heaters)have gone back to what I hope is tried and true.
Time will tell,hoping for 12 yrs of reliable service.
The water heater seems well built with stainless steel heaters and looks like a quality piece.
Compared to other heaters I looked at it's good value and liked the fact that it is well insulated.
Like I said happy with my purchase but only time will tell.
Nice to buy an American made product.
Finally,take my advice DON'T BUY A TANKLESS HEATER.

First unit failed after 3 months
After 3 months I got an E02 error (overheat). Customer service was very easy to get to. They sent a new thermostat overnight which did not correct the issue. My electrician/plumber charged me $100 to install this. Next they sent a control module. Again, this did not correct the issue. Finally they authorized a complete swap out. My electrician/plumber charged me $140 to do this. So far so good. This seems to be a very nice product and I hoping that it lasts.
