Great water heater. Very good product and was easy to install. I will certainly consider Whirlpool for future products. December 12, 2014
Love this product Working excellent and the water heats quickly. Smooth running, not noisy at all. Like the 6th sense feature that warn you of any malfunctions. November 20, 2014
Really impressed with the new water heater. This was a replacement for a 25 year old unit. The old model was a 40 gallon short model and I replaced it with a Whirlpool short model which kept me from having to shorten the water pipes as I would have had to do if I had put in the 10 inch taller unit. I really like the piezo pilot light. Sure beats having to light with a match or a butane lighter used to light a grill. It is eye pleasing to look at and my wife loves it. The only problem I had with my old unit was I had to replace the thermocouple twice. This time the gas control valve went out and I didn't want to put any more money into it because of its age. If I get this good of service from my new Whirlpool water heater I will be delighted. November 7, 2014
We have "Hot Water" Everything works well....we have plenty of hot water..I perhaps should have gotten the extended warrenty from Lowe's. JDee November 4, 2014
This product has great features Installed this unit in our summer home. Easy to install and operate. Excellent recovery time when heating water. Quiet operation. November 2, 2014
easy install simple set up Third heater I have installed , by far the easiest to set up and get lit. Really Like the new style peizeo lighter system. Solid foam insulation much better. I can already tell big difference in the temp level maintained by the unit.. GOOD JOB !!! Whirlpool August 31, 2014
This product serves the purpose Nothing that I can find in the manual to tell me how the status light is powered. owners need to know if there is a battery for it or is it operated by the gas flow charging an internal component. August 20, 2014
easy installation Just installed today cannot say much more than it works now. July 26, 2014
It's really too early to tell: 3 days installed. So far, good. It's too early to tell about energy use, reliability, quality, etc. It was easy to install and, given it's a water heater in the garage, it looks OK. July 2, 2014
good looking heater Needed a new water heater since my Kenmore inlet and outlet nipples rusted through and were seeping water over the top or the heater. Shopped Home Depot and Hammond Lumber and finally Lowes where I found your heater and it seemed to be the best choice. I kind of liked no inlet or outlet nipples as I prefer the brass ones I used, they will not rust out. Install went well and the burner fired right up with no surprises. Performs as expected.
