Gas water heater that is very easy to install... From the store to the job being completed it only took around 2 1/2 hours, and thats counting removing the old water heater. After filling the water heater with water I lite the pilot light and around an hour later we had HOT water. Thank you Whirlpool for making such a great product that is easy to install. ***** STARS November 10, 2012
This product was reasonably priced and has very dependable features and very easy to install. We had a Kenmore that was suppose to last 12 years and went bad in less than 10 years. I was not impressed with the newer model Kenmore heaters. I went to Lowes and surprised to find Whirlpool with a reasonable price. This whirlpool model is very highly rated and very dependable. It was easy to install and easy to light the pilot light. I would look at Whirlpool other appliance in the future for replacements. Very pleased so far. Product registration took less than 1 min.

Easy to install not a bad price I just got the water heater on a Saturday and installed on a Sunday. Registering it on a Monday being asked what I think about the product is a bit premature so to provide an over all review is not possible. I would recommend to whirlpool that they ask about new product installs after the person has a chance to experience the product. For now I will say if this new water heater can last beyond the six year warranty period would make it an ok investment. Cmyboy August 25, 2014

Installation was straightforward. Appreciate the simple lighting. It seems to be a solid product. Simple and straightforward to install. Simple to light. Attaching the gas line was easy as the gas intake was solid and didn't require a 2nd wrench for opposing torque. August 4, 2014
