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

Old one out, New one in Easy to install. The instructions are abnormally good. October 13, 2014
Installed easily per excellent instructions. Has worked perfectly thus far. The Whirlpool was purchased to replace a 20 years old gas WH that leaked so all connections in place. Installed the Whirlpool, lit it up-and plenty of hot water ever since. Couldn't have been easier. Well satisfied. . October 12, 2014
Easy to install Very pleased with the ease at which we were able to install and pleased with a 6 yr. warranty although I hope it lasts longer than that. October 10, 2014
Product is eazy to use. Second heater of this model that I have purchased, fourth, for family. October 10, 2014
i like the features of the heater the heater has a light on it to help you understand if it is working properly or even installed the wrong way the light will go out if it is not running or the pilot goes out October 8, 2014
Good quality and Made in America Purchased this product because it was made in USA and found the quality to be excelent. Given a choice I will always purchase products made in this country and shop in stores that carry these products. I hopw Home Depot reads this because I went there first and could not find a water that was made in this country then went to Lowes where i found this water heater. October 5, 2014
cheap and easy my old water heater finally gave out, looked online and found this model, it was everything i needed and at a great price. installation was a snap with the adapter kit, well worth it, pilot light started right away hot water within the hour, we'll see how long it lasts, 6 year warranty.
