Great features Installed myself with no problems. Like the features of product. October 21, 2014
This water heater is reliable, easy to install. This is our second Whirlpool hot water heater; we expressly purchased another water heater of the same brand and type because of the extreme reliability of the product as well as the ease of installation. We are "do-it-yourselfers" and found this installation easy. Explicit instructions are there if you need them. I really like the "at-a-glance" LED light that tells you the pilot light is lit (and therefore "normal operation") as well as the diagnostic features of the LED if there is trouble. Many improvements over the previous model! The air filter skirt around the bottom is a good idea to keep bugs and cobwebs away from the burner and to maintain a good airflow, to keep the flame at its peak. A great product! October 17, 2014
Not much I can say as i've only had it installed for less then 5 days. Not differiclut to install and seems to work fine thus far. October 15, 2014

Product has easy operating features Product looks great,works great and has great operating features. Value a bit pricey, however purchased whirlpool water heater in past and had no problems. Installation was pretty simple. September 21, 2014
So far so good. Just installed. Just installed, but so far so good. Product has a nice appearance and seems to operate fairly quiet. Not too difficult to install, had to modify gas line and plumbing a bit, but it was replacing a 14 year old tank. Pilot light took 3 attempts to light, but had to purge air from gas line.

This water heater has all +++s Design is good ,,Installation was mostly good ..except for overflow was far other side from average water heaters little more piping and time....I have mostly all whirlpool appliances and they last for years . Also on this unit It flashes lights all the time but nowhere can I find a battery nor does it say in the book. If it ever stops ??? Still Super Water Heater. Wrote this after 10 months of use All ++++s August 12, 2014
Awesome product for the price & value My house is about 8 years old with 2 water heaters installed. The first one went bad 2 years ago, and I replaced with Whirlpool 40G (9-Year warranty). The installation process was too easy and it works great. The 2nd one went bad last month and I replaced with a similar one. I am fully satisfied with this quality product. August 3, 2014
Price was good! Price was good and didn't take long for it to heat up! and easy to use! August 2, 2014
Good design and easy to install The installation was straightforward and took about 1 hour. Of course, I had the required fittings and connections before starting the install. The heater is simple to set up and use. The only problem I had is the heater is installed in a closet in the garage with the HVAC unit. Space was very tight and hindered removal of the old heater as well as install of the new one. July 28, 2014
