Like the way it lights up Getting used to the pilot is not accessible by door. only through window. I like that. Its starts differently from the old one. June 7, 2015
Whirlpool water heater product does not have a good track record for us. We are replacing another Whirlpool water heater which we had many problems with the thermal control and pilot light unit. These both had to be replaced twice, once by a plumber and once by myself . The previous water heater we had such difficulty with: Model # BFG1H5040T3N0V Serial# 0817T402089 Product# 0733144 Due to measurement constraints we were forced to stay with Whirlpool following researching other products.

Installed today. So far so good Easily installed. No problems. We'll see how it goes when we start running appliances and taking showers at the same time. We should be OK (we hope). April 6, 2015
Average product Product was recommended by a friend, the store staff was fairly helpful in explaining the features. I was surprised to hear that the only difference between the 6 and 9 and 12 year warranty products was the warranty itself. March 19, 2015
Big machine to install through a Hobbit Hole Needed more hot water so we upgraded to 50 gallons from aging 40 gallon heater. Other than attic access through an upstairs closet, the heater installation went without issue. Pilot ignition came on quickly and unit is functioning well. Ready to enjoy a long hot shower.

Great unit so far!! It will be 3 months in 10 days so I only have 2 months & 20 day to judge if this unit is a good one or a piece of junk.I can say it installed with no problems,Fired it up & had enough hot water in less than an hour for bath & shower. Previous unit lasted 28 years. So this unit has a ways to go before I can rate it higher. February 16, 2015
Good value for the money I feel that this is a first class product from a first class company. February 16, 2015
Made in the USA I bought this product because of the Whirlpool name and most importantly because it is made in the USA. Installed just like any other water heater, the control panel makes it easy to light. January 4, 2015
