this product shows promise
This water heater appears to have the same advantages my old model ee3j40rd045v had, but with some exceptions. There are three exceptions: 1)the touch screen display is mounted on top of the thermostat has to be removed to hit the reset button. The old water heater had a reset button mounted on the control panel which was easer and superior to this design. 2) The top of the water heater was not marked in any way as to which water connection was hot are cold. My old heater had a "C" and "H" embossed in the top. in fact, this is why I called tech support. I wanted to verify which was cold inlet. 3) Another 12 year heater sitting next to the one I got had been opened and I noticed the inlet outlet tubes had not been installed in the top of the heater. I checked my heater carton and it had no indication if it had installed inlet outlet tubes or not. Based on this I bought an expensive set of new inlet outlet hoses, which happened to have a preinstalled threaded brass pipe on one end of each braded flexible hose. Alas, my heater had tubes installed. When I called tech support, they indicated I could remove the inlet plastic lined tube and install the threaded brass end of my new flexible hose assembly instead and could verify that the right hand tube was the cold water because there was a blue color if it was the top of the dip tube. This was very useful info, since my new flexible hoses were designed to replace the plastic lined tubes in the inlet outlet connections.

Love the features
I really like the updated features of the this unit. The energy smart mode is great. It learns your routine so as to be way more efficient than the old basic units. I also like the 12 year warranty.

Product is easy to use
Just installed today, was fairly easy even for non-plumber. It would be reassuring if water connections were marked H & C. Super easy to setup program. Looking forward to lower electric bills.

this product has been fairly easy to install.
I don`t have this water heater very long only a week, we have time of day service when power to water heater is off. we ran out of hot water due to power being off and using hot water during the time when the power is off . other than that the water heater works great. I like the options for setting heating mode and ease of changing water temp . Overall a great value I would buy same water heater again.

This product has everything I wanted
The only problem was taking out the old gas one, 1 hour+, putting in your electric one 20 min.. I was able to set it the way I wanted it in about 10 min. without any ones help and it's working PERFECK and I'm no spring chicken! My plumber likes it so much that he's buying a 80 gal. unit, way to go Whirlpool!!!

Good product, hated the wait
I purchased this from Lowes on 8/13/14, knowing there would be a two week delay. There was some sort of delay with sending the product from the Mfg. and I did not receive the waterheater until 09/12/14. Lowes agreed to deliver it free and all is forgiven as the delivery people did an EXCELLENT job wrangling it down steep narrow basement steps.
