Whirlpool Gas Hot Water Heater
This gas hot water heater is just right for our needs
we have a two story house and it is very efficient
for our daily use and convenience as well.

Contact me back in a couple of years, then I'll have a valid opinion
I have just installed this water heater, thus it is to soon to justify any of the above ratings. One reason I bought this one is because it replaced our old Whirlpool Water heater, which was 10 yrs old. I was hoping I would not have to change much of the plumbing between the two, and I didn't. I hope this new heater does not have any dumb features as our old one did, for the old heater originally used a "left handed" threaded thermal couple. Thus I had to keep coming back to Whirlpool to buy their specific thermal couple. Eventually Whirlpool did supply me with an adapter, so as that I may use a normal right handed thermal couple. If had known about this dumb feature when I bought the original water heater, I don't know if I would have bought it.

I would buy it again-well we did get another whirlpool again
My old Whirlpool lasted 9 years ( it was supposed to last only 6). This is a 9 year model so it should last a lot longer. If the pilot light hadn't stop going out who knows how long my old one would have lasted. It never started leaking or anything and I expect the same from this new one. It was easy to install all by myself. This one is taller than the old one so I had to shorted the vent stack. That took more time than anything. Anyway I am happy.
I didn't think they would ask about my plumbing experience; I wouldn't say I am very handy just ordinary handy - if you can take it apart with ease you can put it back together, nothing to it. All you need is an adjustable wrench, pipe wrench, Teflon tape and a flat head screwdriver. Do turn off the gas and water supply when replacing and be patient when draining your old heater tank.

easy to install and get working
It appears to be a good purchase, since I have owned it for a few weeks. it replaced one that was 10+ years old. Easy to read instructions and easy to install.

Good price, value, and ease of installation
Purchased the water heater and just installed it. Everything works great so far. I realize that it is early but all indications are that it is a very good water heater. I like the gas control that provides a status light.

2nd one, 1st one only lasted 30 months before flooding garage
This was a warranty replacement for one that only lasted about 30 months. So I can't give this product a higher rating, until I see if it lasts longer then the one it replaced. The installer told me that they have had a few defective water heaters from whirlpool, so I probably won't buy another whirlpool water heater. The only reason I bought this whirlpool was because the defective one was under warranty, otherwise I would have bought a different brand.
