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
BURNER AND PILOT PROBLEMS N40T61-343 WATER TANK GOOD VALUE, FAST RECOVERY, EASY TO INSTALL, MUST LOVE COLD SHOWERS. LESS THAN A YEAR OLD AND HAVE HAD THE BURNER REPLACED TWICE, THE GAS COMPANY HAS BEEN HERE THREE TIMES AND THEY TOLD ME THEY HAVE SEEN SEVERAL OF THIS MODEL NOT WORKING PROPERLY. WEB SITE REGISTRATION PROBLEMS FROM DAY NEW. N40T61-343 WATER HEATERS DO NOT REFLECT THE QUALITY EXPECTED FROM WHIRLPOOL. I DON'T PLAN ON HAVING ANY MORE WHIRLPOOL PRODUCTS IN THIS HOME! I DO NEED HOT WATER BUT AM AT A LOSS OF WHAT TO DO WITH MY NEW WATER TANK! I AM A DISABLED VETERAN AND SPARE CASH IS A PREMIUM. March 26, 2015
realiable product The hot water heater tank is fine and with the pressure relief valve already installed. but your website is screwed up. I registered the same number with a number 0 (zero) and the letter "o" but it still would not let me register it. you need to make it more clear about what is a number or letter. I had to come to this site and register but it still wouldn't take it. I tried over 10 times but it wouldn't work to do it and kept telling me to enter model # when i did every way i could think. so no capital letters because it does it after "I" did correct every way i could think of. i do trust and like whirlpool,but at least make the registration a little better. when i checked where to find the model on your drop down list, it didn't have water heater on it. even though i have the box label right here and went and got i off the tank itself. i almost said screw it but for a 6 year warranty, i kept trying.

This unit replaced my previous Whirlpool water heater. This unit replaced my previous Whirlpool water heater, because the old unit began to leak and make strange noises. This unit is taller than my old water heater and required a "pan" as well as a different drainage route for the "relief valve" system. I won't know energy savings or reliability until I've had time and opportunity to compare cost / upkeep numbers. The monitoring panel / light system seems like a good safety feature for the general home owner / user. Appears to be a much cleaner system / installation than the previous unit. Looking forward to a longer service life from this new unit. March 24, 2015
Good quality for a great price! This hot water tank was for a rental property. It was installed on 3/3/15. Tenant says it is working very well, and that the water temperature is perfect. I was very pleased with the price, as I was expecting it to cost more. March 24, 2015
NICE Just got it working and already like it. Doesn't take long for it to get hot water ready to use. March 22, 2015
I like it better then the one replaced I like it better then the one replaced the controls are easier to work and the pilot light is easier to light. March 22, 2015
Product works very well Water heats up quickly, and is very hot. Status light is very handy. March 22, 2015
The installation of this model was SO easy! My hubby, a retired former electronics technician, questioned why the pilot light requires no electrical source. I told him to just relax, and accept that we are benefitting from evolving technology, and we can just enjoy it. Thanks, Whirlpool, for a wonderful, efficient new water heater! March 21, 2015
An easy install I have installed water heaters off and on for the past 20 years. This model although basic, it was an easy install along with easy to use gas manifold with its blinking light. My wife will appreciate the ease of troubleshooting the product by visual means. March 21, 2015
