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

easy to install execelent warranty service i have used whirlpool products for many years and find that they make an affordable water heater that is easy to install and lighting the pilot was easy and this was a warranty replacement that i thought would be a hassle but Lowe`s came thru without a hitch , i just took in the old one with my receipt and they brought out a new unit the same as my 5 year old one and at no cost to now that`s a good warranty.

50 gallon Whirlpool gas water heater Other then the controls at the bottom, this tank seems to be the exact same thing as the one I replaced. I had 100% satisfactory service out of it until it quit. The only thing that I don't like about these newer tanks is the safety feature that stops it from lighting if it is dusty. I have a coal furnace and do have coal dust and just maybe this is what stopped the old one from working. I don't really know. I will just have to keep it cleaned up a little better around this one with the vacuum. April 7, 2014
Very good water heater Easy installation. Start up was uneventful and efficient. Replaced a 12 year old Whirlpool, 50 gallon, gas fired unit. Reliable unit. Drained once per year. Would recommend as a reasonably priced unit. April 5, 2014
Blinking light I like the idea of the blinking light to let you know all is well. Really quiet and provides all the hot water I want. April 5, 2014
