PRODUCT EASY TO INSTALL WITH THE PROPER PIPE SIZE WE WERE ABLE TO INSTALL IN UNDER 2 HOURS WITH INSTRUCTIONS. ONLY ONE TRIP TO HARDWARE STORE FOR FITTINGS. October 26, 2014
A good product This unit replaced a whirlpool water heater of the same size that had been in use for about twelve years and the control unit is what finally gave out. On installation, the only thing that didn't line up was the height of the gas control valve, wich wouldn't have been a problem if I had used flexible gas line but I didn't. Other than that this unit slid right into place with no promblems,fired up with no problems,and continues to run with no problems. Seems well put together as did my twelve year old unit. If there hadn't of been control and thermo coupler changes I may have fixed the old whirlpool, it still looks brand new, but the changes on the new are probably an upgrade design wise. If this lasts like the old whirlpool I couldn't say that it is anything but a good reliable product.. keep up the good work. October 26, 2014

This product is great! This water heater was very reasonably priced.I saved $200.00 compared to other brands. It is a nice design and was easy to install. I have always had great success with Whirlpool appliances. They make quality products. I recommend this water heater. October 19, 2014

Honeywell gas valve I previously had a whirlpool water heater with the flame lock gas valve and had nothing but trouble with it the whole 3 yrs it was installed. I was at Lowes actually to get parts for the old one and still didn't solve the problem, which ended up being the gas valve/thermostat. Both brand new in the box gas valves and complete burner assembly still didn't work. I went back to look at the water heaters and noticed they had changed to honeywell valves, so I thought I would give them another chance and purchased one. The install went smooth and it fired up like it should...... It's only been in for 1 day, but I'm being optomisic and hoping to have better luck out of this one!! Most of my other major appliances are whirlpool and I've had them for many years with no issues. I think they have worked the kinks out in this water heater, at least I hope so!! October 17, 2014
2 days in...so far so good Fairly easy install for myself and a friend. Took about 4 hours total. Heats well. October 14, 2014
