Easy Install and Great Features
Install was easy. Hooked everything up, filled with water and fired up the heater. Hot water in no time.

My wife and I replaced our Kenmore 50 gallon model with this whirlpool after looking extensively for a model that would save energy and not heat our house up like the model we had. So far We have noticed a distinct difference in the temperature in the laundry room where it is installed. Other than that it is a feature of our home that draws no attention. We turn on the faucet and hot water comes out until we turn it off. Even after several kids take showers there is no drop in water temperature. I had read several reviews that said there was a noise when it ran but it is quieter than our old one and unless I go into the laundry room to get something you can't hear it even though it is right next to our kitchen. If it holds up in the long run it will be an absolutely excellent addition to our home.

Its a water heater
Purchased at our local Lowe's and of course you have very few to choose from. The side of the box tells you what you will need to install but doesn't tell you the minimum length needed for the 2 nipples. My old ones were 1 1/2 inches and had to go back to the store a get 2 1/2 inch ones. The hot an cold are below the top about an inch.. If you buy a drip pan you will need the larger than the 24 inch due to the pilot light cover sticking out so far.

I like it
I like the electronic igniter. The switch is nice to shut off when going away. I think the damper really saves a lot.

This water heater's electronic ignition system seems to be more efficient.
After installation, the dial of my home's gas meter seems to turn more slowly, due to the lack of a pilot light, and the burner design definitely uses less gas than my previous WH.

Bought from Lowes in Sep 09 and the unit now is leaking from the bottom. It's 12/14 now. What a piece of junk. Rather buy a new one from a different brand than use the warranty for another piece of junk.

Overall great unit
The pipe threads were dirty and were leaking, so they required cleaning. The rubber washers in the fittings restrict flow and would have been good to know before installing. Would have been nice if it mentioned to buy an installation kit. Otherwise it looks like a nice unit and it starts up easily.

12 years of warranty is worthless since the electronics keep failing on me. I am ready to throw it out!
I would never buy this unite ever again. For 15 years I had a super reliable unit and replace it with this unit that is out a few times a week. Overpriced and unreliable.
