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
I like the control features, easy to light and use. Installed this water heater myself today without to much trouble. Any trouble experienced was due to plumbing issues and not the water heater itself. Got the pilot light lit at exactly 1:30pm and by 2:30pm the water heater shut off, I thought that something was wrong but to my amazement all the water was completely hot. That's 50 gallons of piping hot water; Pretty fast! I am pleased! November 20, 2014
very dependable whirlpool water heaters are have good quality and long lasting. November 14, 2014
Simple instructions to operate. This review is probably a little premature, as the unit was just installed yesterday. However, so far so good. After about 2 hours we had hot water. The install by the contractor Soltherma Inc., for Lowes, did an excellent job. November 14, 2014
It's a waterheater, what can I say Probably the best value (6yr) without all the added controls that cause headaches down the road and cost big bucks to repair. It can get darn cold in Okla...low to mid teens some winters. The WH is installed in the garage in an insulated closet. Previous WH was also 6yr unit and lasted near 14 yrs and was replaced when tank started leaking. Key is draining/flush tank every fall and anode replacement every 5-6 yrs. November 14, 2014
easy install and srartup install and startup was easy. first time I installed a hotwater heater. dirictions in manual easy to follow. Controls are super easy to use. Has temp range marked on temp control in degrees. Helpfuil November 11, 2014
It's a Water Heater The concept is nothing new. Cold water in, hot water out. I did like the way the pilot light is fired up. Makes more sense then holding a match in the back of a fire box. The status light is a good upfront feature. Thought the air filter system was funky. Would make more sense to have it in the front or side, NOT ON THE BOTTOM. After filling the tank for the 1st time, it took 45 minutes to bring the water temperature up to 130 degrees. This was a very good temperature rise, because the H2O in was only 56 Degrees. Will be happy with this fast recovery time. Didn't like the HEAT TRAPS. Looked more like a flow restrictor. Can envision problems with that feature down the road. Maybe the engineers know something the plumbers don't. November 9, 2014
Great price Ease of use but length of warranty period not long enough November 9, 2014
Good Product This is a good product so far. It's been installed by me for over 2 months now and there are no problems from this unit. Works great, the install and lighting was really easy, and heated up the water very quickly. I do recommend this product. November 9, 2014
