Love it! this product has great features. The water heater was easy to install and it looks great! I really like the energy smart features and the ease of making the temperature adjustments. November 23, 2014
Well worth it! Purchased from Lowe's and they were going to install it. When the installer arrived he said he could not install it due to the type of pipe .Lowe's will not work with that type of pipe.. Local plumbers quoted me $400+ to install! So being a 64 yr old widow on a fixed income I decided to install it myself! It was quite easy to install. Between the manual and online information I got it installed! First I tuned off the power at the breaker. Turned the water off, drained the old tank and removed it.Drew a diagram of how the wires were connected and in about an hour I had a new water heater installed. Once you get used to the symbols and how to operate the different settings it is quite easy to change the temp or mode of operation ( energy,standard etc). It is an attractive unit and was easy to set upon bricks so the bottom is not touching the concrete floor. Woudl highly recommend! November 21, 2014
Whirlpool Hot water heater with digital display Mine has excessive condensation on the inside of the display. The idea is the digital display allows for additional efficiency by allowing vacation mode and ease of adjusting the temperature. Reality is the display leaks making it useless. November 21, 2014
product is of excellent quality I had a prior Whirlpool water heater, installed it in Sept. 2008, worked well for 6 years then developed a leak in the bottom pan area, looked at the label and discovered that there was a 12 year warranty, called customer service, and after giving model and serial numbers, received a return code, returned to Lowes and received a new on even trade, excellent warranty coverage.

goodso far Purchased this model due to reviews and features. It has a nice energy saving mode and vacation mode. It took me four hours to install. Would have went quicker if I didn't have to go back to Lowes for a 3/4 pipe cutter. The hardest part was sweating the line for the pressure relief valve. The unit has a side or top mounting option for the valve. So far its working great. November 16, 2014
