Seems to work well Plenty of hot water. The heater has only been working well it is only in place 3 days. we get plenty of hot water. November 21, 2014
built in timer this unit at lowes was only $30 more with the built in digital timer. the timer will save me money over the life of the unit so its worth the little extra November 21, 2014
Easy Installation Easy to install. The touchpad feature gives you to make quick changes and settings. November 17, 2014
So Far So Good Installed 2 weeks ago and so far so good. My only complaint is that the box stated that the water heater had female connectors so I bought the male adapters only to discover it had male connections. The install was very easy and straight forward. I hope this one lasts as long as the last one! (20+years) November 17, 2014
Great Value. Easy installation like the Energy Smart Feature and digital controls November 15, 2014
The product has great features The Display unit makes it easy to know what's going on all the time. To new to determine energy savings yet. Smart looking unit as well! November 15, 2014
Great features includind Energy Smart Technologies, compact size. This is my second Whirlpool Energy Smart unit. The first one lasted thirteen years without a single problem until the very end. I chose to get a new one as opposed to repair so I could take advantage of the new generation of Energy Smart technology features. Compact size and impressive display for customer interface. All my DYI friends are jealous. November 13, 2014
This product has great features and a good price. Whirlpool has a good reputation for standing by their products. I haven't had it long enough to answer all these questions. It was easy to install and the appearance is appealing for a hot water heater. We had no trouble having hot water. November 12, 2014
Easy install My only beef with the product is the drain valve is oriented the wrong direction so connecting a drain hose will be a pita. i had to read the manual to find how to unlock, i think this was a design feature to force me to read every section.... push and hold 3 seconds for those who dont want to read the manual November 11, 2014
Great Product for the cost This product is very new to me and my line of work. I am pleased with the ease of use of it. Very simple to operate and understand the features. November 10, 2014
