Honey Since the Fridge Broke we Need to Replace ALL the Appliances.


Truer words were never spoken… We recently replaced several appliances in the kitchen after nearly a decade. It was time to upgrade after the fridge decided to end its servitude to us in a painful fashion. Furthermore women are convincing when stating...

Good Interior space, High Powered, Lots of Features

Expensive, may be more than you need. Updating the Clock is annoying

We spent more than anticipated in hopes that we wouldn't need to upgrade in the near future. Cooks food evenly and the large interior size/features are useful

Good value


Solid value for a micro/hood combination. The only negative I found is that the light is set all the way at the back of the unit, so depending on your stove setup, it might not be as effective as you'd like. It is very bright, so that somewhat...

Stops working just outside of warranty


This microwave slowly stopped working, and the magnotron completely gave out approximately 1 year and 4 months after installation. After speaking with Whirlpool customer service, they will NOT stand behind their product, only feeding me the same line...

This product SUCKS!


I have had this microwave for about 20 months. It came with my new house. After about 13 months it stopped heating. I called Whirlpool and they gladly fixed it. 7 months later, the SAME PROBLEM and this time Whirlpool could care less. I have read many...

It's good so far!


So far so good! It is a bit noisy. It cooks evenly but it takes longer than my previous microwave. Wish these products lasted longer.

I love my microwave. It matches all of my other Whirlpool kitchen appliances. I love the feature where the unit will occasionally beep until you take your item out. All too often I have left a reheated cup of coffee in the microwave, so this feature is...

no pause feature


I have had this microwave for 6 months and have not found a way to pause the cook time, a feature I really liked with my old microwave. The manual is not very helpful. I do not think the "sensor" function is helpful. Doesn't work well for me.

We purchased our unit from Lowes in Feb. 2010 and our fifth service call will be this Wed. May 26. The turn table motor failed and the Lowes warranty expired while that was being repaired. Now the Magnatron had failed. The Whirlpool technician told us...
