Really Like Digistal Controls Seems Well Made and fit nicely in space of the old water heater it replaced. Taller than the old unit so had to lengthen the both the cold & hot water pipes. Hope with the Energy Saver & Vacation Features will save some money. Time will tell. June 30, 2015
Excellent quality and easy to install Was easy to install and had no problems. Only thing that was different than the instructions, was when I turned on the power, It never went through the eight minute self diagnostic as described. It just powered on and started heating up. It's extremely quite, I can't hear it at all. The controls are simple and I like the Energy Smart option. June 28, 2015
good product so far we've had this w heater for a couple of months and so far it's been great. June 25, 2015
Excellent choice for replacement or new. Lowes staff is very educated and helped with everything from deciding which water heater to get to how to install. This water heater is the easiest to install! I am more than please with this water heater, better than regular and easier to install than the "tankless" water heaters. June 22, 2015
Easy to Install I installed this unit and it was straight forward, no problems unit powered up and began working with no problems, I have not made any changes to the unit and am giving it a chance to see of the factory setting of 120 degrees if enough as well as the energy saving mode. All in all I am pleased with the unit. June 19, 2015
The overall appearance is great the auto control panel is good After aprox. 3 weeks of use the unit has began to trip the breaker intermittently. Sometimes days apart, sometimes days apart. This am it tripped at aprox. 7:30 am and we reset the breaker then at aprox. 9:30 am it tripped again. Once we reset the breaker all is good until next time. We are now going to call the help line number in hopes of fixing the problem. June 9, 2015
Great feature digital and self cleaning Never had a self cleaning or digital setting water heater before so I really can' give a good or bad or indifferent review will let you know within a couple of years my warranty is good until 2024 will let you know then or before. June 5, 2015
easy install quick hot water So far so good. We had the last Whirlpool hot water heater 11 years before having issues so we decided to replace with another. It was easy to install and we have the remp set to 115 but are thinking about dialing back more (this heater really delivers the hot water). June 1, 2015
Energy saving hot water heater The plumber didn't have any trouble installing it. He also showed me how to use it, changing the settings, etc. It has an energy saving mode where it learns your usage habits and heats the water accordingly. The booklet didn't explain how to set that up. It also has a vacation mode allowing it to use less energy while you are gone. I expect it to lower my electric bill. May 30, 2015
so far so good needed a new water heater, went with a whirlpool, for the length warranty and also the features it had, it claims to adjust to how you live, so it wont heat as much during the day when im away, its hard to tell a difference yet but its a nice feature if it works, i can also put it on energy save mode and vacation mode, it was also very easy to hook up, as are most water heaters, June 30, 2015
