Great water heater easy to install First water heater that I have self installed. Great features like the vacation mode. We have never ran out of hot water in our 4br/2.5 bath. We did before with our old water heater. We will change it out of energy smart mode to standard when we have family visit for the holidays. I did notice that there is an orifice in the inlet and outlet of the water heater. We saw a very small drop in water pressure, but this has helped extend the amount of time the hot water heater can run so we haven't ran out of hot water. August 25, 2014
So far so good Filled quickly and came up to temperature quickly. August 24, 2014
The price was good and my wife likes the look so we bought it. I like the touch pad controls to change the temperature and it also locks the controls. August 24, 2014
Really liked the digital thermostat and vacation mode as well as other features on the digital control panel. I have only had it in for a few days but it is working well and plenty of hot water. Looking forward to many years of good service. The twelve year warranty is about as good as you can get and I have only heard good stories from other customers about warranty issues. August 24, 2014
great features Very efficient nice looking easy to install started right up good hot water August 20, 2014
This my second waterheater of the same model - I now have two just alike You can't find a better warranty no matter what product you have. They work just fine - hot water, plenty. I highly recommend this model and brand! August 20, 2014
Too soon to evaluate Just installed less than one week. Proof of quality, etc will come later. August 18, 2014
i like the vacation mode, instead of turning off the breaker nicely priced and nice color to boot! piece of cake to install , the fittings are all in the same place as the one we replaced, doesn't happen often like that August 18, 2014
love the lighted temp reading product seems to be what I expect in quality in Whirlpool items. August 17, 2014
Great unit but where is the Iris tech This is a great unit and auto learns based on use. However it was sold as IRIS compliant but not even the IRIS help desk knew anything about it. August 17, 2014
