Great Quality & Features along with great customer and warranty service. Had an Electric 80 gallon Whirlpool Hot Water Heater for the past 11 years. It went bad and Customer and warranty service had it replaced the same day. The water heater is of great quality and easy to set up and use. The LCD panel is a great feature. Easy to read, understand and use. Self cleaning and Self-Diagnostic Electronic Control is also a nice feature too. No Complaints here. Whirlpool, Thank you! May 19, 2015
Seems like a good Water heater. Just got this today. Seems like it will be just what I needed May 11, 2015
Sleek Design & Beautiful Color Efficient, easy to use coupled with sleek, slim design and beautiful, rich color. A+ throughout! May 7, 2015
OUTSTANDING QUALITY I wanted a water heater that would not go cold on me during the filling of my hot tub/sauna and also take into account a full shower too! This is the one...I haven't been able to run it out of hot water yet, and believe me...I have tried!!! An outstanding product and engineered to last...so why doesn't everybody just auntie-up and purchase one of these at the git go??? It's got the capacity, the insulation, the quality that anyone could possibility want!!!! Bottom line up front...I love it!!! April 30, 2015
Great features Product was easy to install and digital display is easy to use and whirlpool is made in America. April 28, 2015
Loving It So Far! This unit has everything I was looking for - great looking, terrfic finish, long warranty, high capacity, Easy to use Digital LED and all at an extremely competitive price! It's only day one but we've already realized what we were missing with our 14-year old Rheem...started pefectly and had hot water within the hour! April 26, 2015
Easy Installation - Startup was perfect We are a family of six. We have four full baths, dishwasher, and Clothes washer. We still have plenty of hot water. I noticed the heating elements off at times and I think this unit will lower my bills. I will comment later on this. April 21, 2015
Easy install, good features Good upgrade. Efficient. Hot water always there now. April 18, 2015
Hot water for days! My friend installed this water heater in about 3 hours (including brazing new copper piping from the house). The 80 gallon capacity lasts through two long showers and a bath, plus it heats water evenly and is easy to use. It was a good value also, considering there were smaller tank water heaters with lesser warranties. April 12, 2015
Love having the large capacity and easy settings. We have only had this product for about a month and it is working as advertised with great capacity for all water needs. The vacation setting is great and easy to use and should be an energy saver over time when we travel. I did buy the extended warranty to be secure in the next 12 years. It is a very large size, so make sure you have lots of room where it is installed and access behind and above before it is all hooked up. My understanding is that very soon the government is not going to allow 80 gallon capacity water heaters of the conventional type in order to further control consumers in some misguided attempt to "save the planet". If you need a large capacity and want a good value, then buy this soon before they are no longer allowed! April 3, 2015
