Warranty Replacement Model Replaced Model BFG1F4040S3NOHV, S/N 1015T400762 which failed after only 4.5 years of service. You replaced the water heater at no charge but it still cost me $309 to have it installed. Does not seem right. If your product fails prematurely you should also pay for installation of the replacement. December 17, 2014
it was a reasonable price. I call lowes store at 11:30 and at 3:00 some one was here ready to install. John was awesome. December 16, 2014
great Only took 4 hours of total time from start till completion. Product was very easy to work with and was very satisfied with how easy it was to install. December 13, 2014
Pilot lighting feature so far so good; easy to install, easy to maintain. December 13, 2014
Unit is good and easy to install. Since I just installed it today, I cannot give much comment on the product but I would say it is good. It just don't come with other accessories that I expected to complete the installation. December 12, 2014
Good value Ran into a minor problem during installation and contacted customer service. Was offered a replacement unit but was able to resolve the issue with guidance from customer service. Good value. December 11, 2014
This product has great features This Whirlpool water heater appeared to be easy to install, however I would recommend that you use a certified installer because there is a one year warranty associated with their installation. It has several safety features that were not included on the old Whirlpool water heater which is a plus. December 10, 2014
Need to use warranty This hot water heater lasts for less than 3 years. December 9, 2014
Low price for high quality The price was very reasonable for a name-brand product. It was easy to install because the design matched the unit I replaced. So far (after a month) it seems to be very efficient. December 8, 2014
very satisfy The contractor said it was easy to install and it heated up the water very fast it was easy to light and it seem to run very good. I have always been satisfy with Whirlpoool products. December 7, 2014
