Like everything except the LED light My 5 year old water heater started leaking, i contacted Whirlpool and they said they would replace it under warranty. Awesome! i just took the old one to Lowe's and picked-up the new one. Didn't cost a thing. October 23, 2014
So far so good! This water heater is replacing a 16 year old A O Smith and I had it installed professionally because it is in the attic...! I was limited to the water heaters due to the opening size going to the attic but this water heater is 18" in diameter and fit fine thru the opening. October 20, 2014
Great Water Heater This is a great water heater. It installs fast, and lights up easily. October 19, 2014
Love it - Easy to operate Took about 2 1/2 hrs to remove old unit and install new water heater. Everything fit back just fine. Fast recovery time for hot water. Only took about 1 1/2 hrs to have hot water after unit was turn on. Looks good next to my new Whirlpool Furnace and A/C. Very quiet heater. At first I had to check a couple times to see if it was still operating since it is so quiet. October 13, 2014
State of the Art Water Heater Wow, had the unit installed professionally but it went really smooth. Unit checks itself and gives a readout on the front panel without any electrical hookup! Quiet running and great hot water service. I like it!!! October 5, 2014
Very easy to start This water heater is so easy to get started after installed, its a total feeling of safety but really it is a whirpool american made and theres comfort in the name whirlpool.. enough said September 28, 2014
Ease of installation. Easy to use This unit is easy to install and 2 people are recommended. It is not hard to install if you have some plumbing skills. If not, hire it done. My old unit was a Whirlpool 50 gal. that sprung a leak 6 mos. b/4 warranty was up. Bummer. We can get by with 40 gal. so we bought a new one. The unit is easy to use and the pilot light is easy to lite. The sensor that gives off a signal is nice to be able to keep up with what the unit is doing. I expect my energy bill to be about the same as with the old unit which wasn't bad at all. I would recommend this unit. September 24, 2014
seems to be well designed and constructed, easy to install, good value so far it seems to be everything we wanted and was a good value from lowe's September 5, 2014
nice apperance controls very easy to use Easy to install, plumber said he likes these heaters September 2, 2014
Easy to install... Easy to install. Had to buy di-electric nipples which was not included. It made fizzle sounds upon filling and lighting the pilot light but it was because excess condensation on the tank that needed to dissipate and the noise stopped. September 1, 2014
