This product has very good features and design. The adjustable operational modes are easy to understand and perform. The instruction manual is great even I can understand it! The quality of workmanship is apparent a great value for the price. January 26, 2015
Solid product that needs a longer warranty for the price Works great!! Came with all the parts (minus the hose x2) and very easy to install. User friendly control panel. However for this price I would have expected a longer year warranty. Currently it has a 9yr warranty. January 24, 2015
Good features & warranty, reasonable price Installed a couple days ago. Easy installation & startup. Element symbol not on much hopefully meaning unit more efficient than previous heater which was not Whirlpool. Very satisfied so far. January 23, 2015
Bought it for the smart modes (standard, energysave, and vacation Was installed 1 week ago, am enjoying the hot water, which I left at default of 120 degrees. Had no hot water for 1 week before replacing it. (That was enough!!) My old whirlpool waterheater lasted 20 years, so I bought another same 50 gallon tank, but with the smart modes. January 23, 2015
Like the features, ease of programming temp and vacation mode. Just got product. Water heats much better than old heater. January 22, 2015
This heater is much more efficient than my old one with the Smart Cycle I am a do it yourselfer, and it was very easy to install and wire in my existing electrical box. I spent less than 10 minutes on the installation from out of the box to having hot water. January 21, 2015
goo0d product good water heater easy to install should put a better drain valve on it though. other than that works well January 21, 2015
Very happy with product. I purchased this water heater because we purchased the same water heater 10 years ago and were very pleased, so we purchased another. January 20, 2015
Easy install The unit was easy to install - took about 2hours to get the old one out and the new one in. January 19, 2015
Great value and reliability I am a 30 year retired commercial airline technician and do HVAC work on the side. Working on airliners tends to make one pretty OCD when it comes to everything mechanical. I also know a good product when I see it. I installed one of these for my son and daughter-in-law about one and a half years ago. It has performed perfectly. So when my water heater expired, I bought another one for myself. The Energy Smart feature works much more precisely than a standard thermostat equipped model. It actually saves you $$$. I highly recommend it. January 19, 2015
