Outstanding Value Our old hot water heater was on its last legs and I was afraid of it failing. It was not a Whirlpool and it came with the house when I bought the house. I went to the store and bought a 40G natural gas water heater with a 6 year warranty on it from Whirlpool. I stand by Whirlpool products 100%. Upon bringing it home and getting ready to set it up I discovered that not only did Whirlpool include a user's manual they included a sort of "quick start" guide to cover the basics in full color. Outstanding! The install was so easy it was unbelievable. Attach the nipples and the new flexible water lines. Connect the exhaust and then the gas line. Fill the tank. Bleed the air from the line via the kitchen sink and then light the pilot. It was so easy that even a caveman could do it! Whirlpool had outstanding directions, hints, and things to look out for in the manual. Even the directions for lighting the pilot and adjusting the temps on the new 6th Sense controls was spot on. I love the peace of mind I now have from my new Whirlpool hot water heater. November 26, 2011
Good product, good value I install products for a living and this works good, its a little louder that my last water heater, when it warms the water. However, overall it preforms well and is good value, but if you plan on installing it yourself you should be familiar with plumbing fittings, how to use the proper plumbing past. November 18, 2014

Installation issue The water heater was easy to install except there were no nipples for the cold & hot water. I had to take the old nipples out of my old water heater and install them in the new water heater. These nipples should be part of the installation package when you purchase the water heater. Not happy with the electronic thermostat. Too many things to go wrong. I like the old water heaters with simple controls, easier to work on and repair. November 15, 2014
nice product in home The water heater is awesome since it took less time for the hot water to come out.We love this water heater,but our old one was really old,so it took more time for the hot water to come out. November 14, 2014
This product was very easy for me to start. This product was a good deal, in my time of need I was glad that I did not have to pay an arm and a leg for something I really needed. November 13, 2014
