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
Great value and product This water heater was a great value and it works like it's supposed to. It's a little louder than our old water heater, but it's in the garage so it's no biggie. Time will tell, but I am hoping this one will last longer the ten years that our old one did! :) March 22, 2015
I hope it is better than the Whirlpool it is replacing. This water heater is replacing a Whirlpool water heater that had a 12 year warranty. This water heater lasted 4years 11 months of the 12 years it was warranted. Whirlpool's warranty did nothing as the water heater was not leaking only producing rust and debris in the water. Fortunately, the extended warranty purchased at the time of purchase refunded the cost of the heater and taxes. Unfortunately, I was given a gift card that could only be used for another Whirlpool heater. This has been the worst experience with Whirlpool products. March 21, 2015
Actually 50 gal. of hot water!!! We are now able to take back to back showers and even have two showers running at the same time. And when taking a shower you don't have to increase the temperature over and over, it stays consistently hot. March 20, 2015
This product is great! We had a leak and needed to replace. We choose this product because of ease of installing. March 18, 2015

Finally, hot water! After suffering with a hot water heater on its last legs, we broke down and bought this new one. The installation was very easy, even though it was natural gas. Be sure to just buy the installation kit, in the end you will be money ahead. I didn't and was out a bit more money and more frustrated. March 15, 2015
