40 Gallon Natural Gas Water Heater - N40T61-343
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.

Decent product made in USA
More detailed information as to necessary parts would be useful. Had to locate store employee to confirm the need to purchase connectors for the top of the tank.

Product has good features
I have only had this for a week so I cant comment on the longevity. So far so good. Seems like it is louder than the replacement when the burner comes on. Recovery ok. Vent stack has no holes for screws to mount on water heater. unit was easy to install. No problems on initial lighting.

EASY TO INSTALL WHEN USING COMPRESSION FITTINGS INSTEAD OF SOLDERING.

Fits right in old space and easy hook up and easy pilot light. No matches.
Fit in old space and no modifications were needed to connect it and the pilot light lit very easy. I wonder about its operation later on seeing it has an air screen that goes around the bottom because dirty air will cause the pilot light to go out according to the manual. This screen needs to be cleaned occasionally. Had I known this before I'm not sure if it would have changed my mind or not. After all it's going in the basement.

Fantastic Water Heater
This water heater is well made with up to date features. The biggest thing that sold me was the Honeywell Electronic Gas Valve with Self Diagnostics. Everything looked a lot easier to work on and replace. Job well done Whirlpool.
