Easy to install Easy to install right out of the box. Took a few tries on lighting the pilot but once it got going was ready an hour later. March 8, 2015
So very easy to lite Very impressed with the easy of liting it off to heat the water. No more windows to look into while laying on the floor...The sensor lets one know when it is lit and the constant blinking of the green lite let me know everything is just fine. Great job Whirlpool for making this so fast and easy. February 20, 2015
Easy set up We had this water for about Two years. It is easy to set up and it does not take much space. Once it lights, it dose not take long to heat the water. The problem is the pilot keeps going out. At first we thought we had a down draft, but that was not it. We had a pro. to come and take a look and he too find it difficult, thank goodness he was able to restart it. February 2, 2015
product was in my price range price w good for my budget but it doesn't seem to keep water real hot.....maybe it's the cold weather. January 25, 2015
I needed a repacement - fast Easy to install, replaced a broken 40-gal unit in my home. I just installed this unit one day ago, so I cannot give any information beyond that. January 11, 2015
easy to install and start up The water heater was the perfect size for the closet it was installed in. It was very easy to install and start up. I was surprised that the water nipples were not installed or included with the heater unit. For the price put the nipples in the box or have them installed already. So far that is my only CON.

No issues The instructions were good, and the installation was easy. I have a suggestion for Whirlpool. How about a model with double the insulation thickness? I'd pay over 100.00 more for this. I will be adding a blanket, but I'd much prefer to have the more efficient foam under a metal skin. December 9, 2014
Very happy with my new water heater Are old water heater broke down and the size / location is a snug fit. This heater is the best fit for our house. The contractor had no problems installing this water heater. November 15, 2014
BIG trouble We have had this water heater about a year and a half. Several times the pilot has gone out. Now pilot lights fine but that is all. It will not hold the flame long enough for us to set a temperature. I thought the previous model was worse but I was wrong. This is just as bad. I did not spend this much money for an item that only last 18 months. October 31, 2014
Needs to have nipples included One of the easiest heaters to install. Not my first October 2, 2014
