this was a warranty upgrade Purchased an 80gallon Esmart elec water heater Nov 2008. even with a dual stage pre filter and flushing the tank every 6 months. the bottom of the tank rotted out. Had the plumber that installed the origonal look at it on A.M. of April 7th he said old one was shot called whirlpool warranty gave them my info in less than 5 min total I received a return auth # they said have plumber take old water heater to any lowes with RA# they will replace with same or upgrade, My wife had hot water that evening. as far as warranty service top not as far as quality of previous heater not so good but they stand by product I probably just got a lemon!

I like all the features of the smart module Although the price is on the high side, I like all the features of this water heater. At 4 months the electronic thermostat failed. Tech support was good to send me another thermostat overnight, but all the error codes in troubleshooting refer to the electronic thermostat, which I fear will be a continuing problem. March 25, 2014
Good features I have not had this item till today. It is hard to rate at this time. Would be glad to rate it later. I did notice simple electrical parts were not included, made for a trip to the store for wire nuts and clamps to complete installation. I would pay a few extra dollars , then to make a special trip to the store. Parts missing cost me only about $5.00 retail. March 23, 2014
I like the features and ease of operation. The electronic control panel is easy to use and simplified for operator friendly use. The warranty is good as well as the capacity. March 23, 2014
loved how fast it heated up .. we thought it would take several hours but no! Too soon yet to tell if it will lower our energy bill but We have a feeling it will. We cannot even hear it run.. it is quiet. PLUS after getting installed .. it only took a couple hours before we could feel warm water. we thought it would take several hrs. Because it is so well insulated.. we believe it will be easy on our elec. bill - plus it is a nice looking unit .. our other one was just a plain ordinary looking one. This one looks awesome in our garage. Very HAPPY with our purchase. Highly recommend! March 23, 2014
This water heater has nice functions including a nice display to change temperature, diagnosis, vacation mode, and standard mode. This water heater was very easy to install. It took less than 1hr. It is a very nice looking water heater with many functions that our old water heater did not have. It is definately an upgrade from our last water heater. March 23, 2014
Great Water Heater A nice upgrade from my old 50 gal REEM. After 15 years in the garage in Florida, my Rheem starting rusting along the bottom and seam, and began leaking. With 4 people in the house, 3 ladies (wife, 13, & 12 year old girls), our old tank just did not supply/recover fast enough for 3, never mind 4 showers back-to-back. This Whirlpool 80 gal. tank is perfect, no more cold showers for this family. Love the looks and features, especially the vacation mode. Worth the extra money for the 80 gal., as this is not something I want to be replacing on a regular basis. Not sure the impact on my energy bill as of yet, as I just installed it, but based on the Energy Sticker, will only use slightly more than my old one. March 18, 2014
