PRODUCT HAS GREAT FEATURES
Unit was easy to install, but I have some concerns about the temp. control. After about one years use the output temp. started to raise and I had to set it from hot to half way to low to keep temp. at 120 degrees.

I am well pleased with everything my new water heater has to offer, from the quietness, the auto-electronic starter/stopper, and expecially the internal insulation feature. No more outside wrapping. It speaks of quality over-all.
Thanks Whirlpool for everything.

new 40 gallon 6th sense water heater
Very efficient, and heats up very quickly. I had an old gas water heater (installed 1994), and it served me well. It would take a good bit of time to recoup after being drained of hot water. The new Whirlpool heats up in probably 1/3 the time it would take my old water heater to recoup. I've only had it 9 days, and it has been good so far.

PRODUCT WORKS GREAT
THE UNIT IS QUIET EXCEPT WHEN HEATING THE TANK OCCURS BUT THIS IS NOT VERY LOUD AND MY UNIT IS IN THE GARAGE. I DON'T EVEN KNOW ITS CYCLING AND THE IDEA OF THE SELF MONITORING LIGHT SYSTEM IS A GOOD ONE. WOULD LIKE TO SEE A BATTERY BACKUP FOR THE ELECTRIC THERMOSTAT. LOSING POWER WOULD MEAN NO HOT WATER UNLESS YOU HAVE A GENERATOR TO PLUG INTO.

It was very easy to install.
I don't if it has lowered my energy bill yet since it was just installed. The one thing I don't like about the water heater is the plastic drain valve, it should have a brass drain valve.

This was easy to install, although I have done two or three others in the past. I did do it myself, with the help of a dolly and my wife helpped me wth the bottom piece of cardboard. With the new compression fittings it is a snap. I am a little worried about the self closing lid on top. A GREAT IDEA, but what if it the motor goes bad? How will I know? What danger could that present? I plan on draining the hot water heater once a year and I have a water softener so the product could last 20 years or more. Will the elctronics hold out?
I do think that this product was a little pricey ($500.00) but with the excel rebate it is a little more resonable.

The only thing I would change about this water heater is the location of the labels, such as warnings and instructions, that are mounted on the front. They are located just above the ignition assembly, but should be located higher on the unit, in the middle. The lower earthquake strap covers some of them up, and will have to be removed in order to read the labels.

The electric pilot flame igniter
this water heater was easy to put in the older home that I have, hope it saves on the cost of gas bill.
