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

this product is only 118 lbs easy to load unload and install I was surprised how light this water heater was compaired to ones 20 yrs ago. My husband and my self unloaded it took it downstairs to basement and had the old one uninstalled and ready to reinstall in aprox 20 minutes how easy is that anyone can do it with the right tools . UNBLEAVEABLE! doesn't take up a lot of space and had hot water in about 1 hr. September 7, 2014

This product has great features This product has great featuresI love it works great September 5, 2014
great features and easy to install It was nice that it was so easy to install, considering I installed it at 10:00 at night. I had one just like it and liked it very much, that is why I bought another one. However after 4 years and our very, very bad water problems in our town we had to purchase a new one. I was very glad they still had this model. September 5, 2014
It was easy to install, I hope it wont burn out the pilot right away. I have oldest Whirlpool model BFG1H4040T3NOV, s/n 0630105753 s/b a 9 years warranty of 40 gal. Tall in didn't event last for 3 years and I couldn't find the papers for prove of warranty. BTW is this a 9 yrs. or 6 yrs. warranty? I bought a extended warranty at LOWES for additional 5 yrs. Is this guaranteed? September 3, 2014
THE PRODUCT HAD A GREAT VALUE I SEARCH OTHER RETAILERS AND COMPARE PRICES AND WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. THE WHIRLPOOL HAD THE BEST PRICE FOR WHAT I NEEDED. MOST OF ALL THE WARRANTY WAS THE B ETTER THAN THE OTHER HEARTERS AT 3YEARS ONLY. September 3, 2014
Good quality with great features We've only had the water heater for 3 days, however so far so good. We had a professional plumbing company install the water heater and it appeared to be an easy install. The hardest part of the install was removing the old water heater (15+ yrs old - different brand) due to all of the sediment build up. The electronic gas valve on this water heater is definitely a nice feature. No more having to lay down on the floor to see if the pilot light is lit. It also gives some peace of mind being able to visually see that everything is functioning properly. My only complaint thus far is that the water heater is very noisy when the burner is on.
