Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great features

Ljob704 12/1/2019

I received this microwave 11/21/19. I love the features on this one. The defrost mode works great without cooking the outside edges of meat or poultry (like my old one did). I like the soften feature for butter, ice cream, or cheese. The warm-hold works well also. The sensor cook feature for a dinner plate tends to cook it too long, so I have to check it after a couple of minutes. So far, that's my only complaint. I love the exhaust fan on it to. It moves a lot more air and more quietly than my old one. I also thought the light was adequate. If it last 11 1/2 years like my last GE model did, I'll be really happy. My daughter has had one similar to this model for about a year now, and she loves hers too. (She has 3 kids and uses hers a lot more than I do.) I would definitely buy again.

good machine. Lots of positives, some negatives

KFS#1 11/26/2019

Has been installed for about 2 months. Quiet, easy to use. Feels solid. Large capacity. The fan underneath is strong and has several levels (my last microwave had several levels but they all sounded like they were on high), and the underneath lighting is effective and useful. Used to microwaves that, if you just press "1" or "2" it turns it on high for that amount of time. For this one I have to press, for example, 1-0-0 for one minute, or the 30 second button twice. Dislike the depressing sounding chime. The microwave takes longer to heat popcorn (about 2:15) than my last $99 microwave (2 minutes). I can live with the problems. "First world problems", as it is said. Really. Overall, I'm happy with it.

Awesome microwave

Miked78 11/19/2019

Has a lot of features. Very happy with this microwave. You can turn the turntable offnif you need to. It has a wrack inside if you need it. It Has a sensor so it doesn't ever burn your popcorn. And it steams which is awesome, as well as many other buttons for different things. A+++ on this one!! Please note I have no issues with whirlpool but I didnt pick this model out, it came with our new home. Nevertheless we love it!

Works great until it doesn't

Meg H 11/17/2019

My husband and I purchased this microwave 18 months ago from Home Depot. It worked great. Around 6 or 7 months ago we started having issues with the light working. Just yesterday, the light didn't work consistently and then the entire microwave quit working. Super disappointing that we have now replaced all our kitchen appliances with whirlpool only to experience issues as the warranty runs out. We have trouble shoot to try and solve the problem and now it looks like our only option is to replace. Extremely disappointed especially knowing we will have to replace with another whirlpool microwave to make sure all our appliances match.

Even cooking and very quiet

BobTheNob 11/15/2019

The guy repairing our only 5yr old Samsung (that was pronounced dead) told us to go Whirlpool and, so far, we love it! Much quieter than the old one and cooks nice and evenly. The only "con" would be the light. It's an incandescent and not very bright. Our old one had two nice bright LEDs on either side of the bottom. Add that to this model and it's perfect.

Jasonn 11/6/2019

I've had this a little over two months now and it truly is a great microwave. The exhaust works much better than our old one and the cooking power is much greater as well. It's not a convection microwave but it has so many options for cooking that we really don't miss the convection part of our old microwave. Cannot beat it for the price paid! Super easy to clean as well!

Ok but instructions to work it are missing

Redmont 10/29/2019

When I bought this it seemed easy to get it to work, but the instructions were vague - I had to go to the internet to discover how to "start" it. The arrow wasn't defined. Nor was the icon to end the booking evident.

We are very happy with our microwave purchase!

carsim 10/28/2019

We have had our Whirlpool microwave for several months now, and I feel that I have used it often enough to write a comprehensive review about it. I will start with the Pros, of which there are many, and go by each feature: PROS: Large 2.1 Cu-Ft Capacity: The spacious cavity allows me to put even large containers or large food items like a small turkey (yes, a turkey in a casserole dish on the cooking rack!) in my microwave. An oblong container like a 9 x 13 casserole dish won't fit on the turntable, but just use the cooking rack for it. Cooking Rack: The cooking rack really comes in handy for the holidays or when cooking for a crowd. It is helpful for cooking a second item simultaneously, or for cooking an oblong dish that won't rotate on the turntable. BTW, the turntable can be turned on or off with the touch of a button. Fingerprint Resistant: The exterior of the microwave resists fingerprints and smudges by simply wiping with a damp cloth or paper towel, making the entire surface easy to keep clean. CleanRelease® Non-Stick Interior: The non-stick coating on the interior of the microwave enables you to simply wipe away any spills and splatters with a damp cloth or paper towel, even if they are not wiped up right away. 4-Speed Fan: The fan provides the correct amount of ventilation by automatically starting, when needed, when you are using the stovetop or oven and the temperature above the stove reaches a certain point. Maximum Cooking Power: Up to 1,000 watts of power delivers rapid, uniform cooking results. End-Of-Cycle Chime: A pleasant melody notifies you when the cooking cycle is complete. I have a little trouble hearing, but the chime is clearly audible to me, which I am grateful for. Handy "Quick Buttons:" – Popcorn, Potato, Dinner Plate, Vegetable, Pizza, Frozen Entrée, Beverage, Steam/Simmer, Warm/Hold, Reheat/Defrost, and Soften/Melt. Just press the appropriate button for whatever food you are preparing. The button is self-explanatory and has further directions if necessary. For example, if you are heating a dish of leftovers, simply place the dish in the microwave and press "Dinner Plate." Voila! The plate is heated to the perfect temperature! +30 Second Option: With the touch of a button, quickly set the microwave timer for 30 seconds, or add 30 seconds to the food already cooking in the microwave. Sensor cooking: Internal sensors automatically determine the doneness of food by measuring the steam (moisture and humidity) emitted from food as it heats and automatically adjusts the cooking time. Sensor cooking eliminates the need to set the cooking time and power level. Adjustable Cooktop Lighting: We leave the single-bulb light on 24 hours a day because we like to have our stovetop lit up whenever we are cooking, and like to use this light as a nightlight in the kitchen, but the bulb lasted only 6 months. It was very easy to replace, however, with a star screwdriver. We found the 40-watt medium-base bulb at Lowe's for $6. We are 68 years old and our eyesight isn't what it used to be, so we do wish that the light were either multiple bulbs or were a higher wattage so that we could see better. This leads me to my one and only complaint. CONS: Interior lighting: My husband and I feel that the single-bulb interior lighting at the front of the microwave is poor; we wish it were brighter. It is rather dim in the interior cavity for us to see food actually cooking! Granted, we are 68 and our eyesight is not the best (and yes, we've both had cataract surgery, lol).

Display too small

The oven works fine but I find the display letters very small.

Doreen92366 10/25/2019

I bought this microwave after my LG stopped working. I bought it for the looks and features, I can not be happier with this product. I will be looking to get a new stove and refrigerator in the near future and will definitely be buying Whirlpool

Not ok

notok980 10/24/2019

It hasn't even been two years since we purchased it and it is already broken, will not heat. Called customer service to see if the 5 year warranty applies as it does to most and it did not. They couldn't do anything. What a bummer we have to get a new one.

We replaced our old microwave with this whirlpool microwave. I like having the controls on the sides as it is easier to see into the oven. We have been happy with the stream and auto cook buttons. Miss express cook buttons, but it's easy to get use to pressing the extra zeroes. We would like a recipe or direction page for 2 level cooking with shelf and 2 step cooking at different power levels. Also make available or at least a picture of your recommended steamer. We like the option button.

More than happy with this microwave!

Attagirl 10/22/2019

We had to replace our 18 year old Kenmore. I researched microwaves for 3 days. This microwave has all the bells and whistles! We love it! It has all my "must-haves", softening/melt, sensor cooking, warm/hold. It walks you through EVERYTHING! my husband was pleased with the install, it was a snap!

Terrible Microwave

GrannyKK 10/21/2019

I had this same Microwave in 2 previous homes and loved it. So when I moved I bought it for my new home from Lowes, and it's been nothing but problems. The glass in the door builds up steam between the glass, the light over the stove went out within a few months and was not covered by the warranty, the panel also went out & Whirlpool wouldn't replace, and it looks like someone took a SOS pad to clean the panel as it's all scratched, sensor for cooking over cooks and burns the food. I feel Whirlpool owes me a New Microwave instead of sending 4 repair guys out. The dishwasher also had to be returned as it came with a huge Dent in the front of it, and the refrigerator front leveler leg was bent which scraped up my new hardwood floors. I will never shop at Lowe's again nor buy Whirlpool!! Very upset about this purchase.

Quiet, plenty of room inside, beautiful appearance

ParisOsito 10/18/2019

Front touchpad is very difficult to read or even see. Words & numbers too small & dark. Needs to be larger font or should light up light the digital clock does. I have to keep a magnifying glass near it to be able to see it

Whirlpool Over-the-Range Microwave

Steven W 10/14/2019

Bought two weeks ago to replace a broken GE Microwave. Excellent so far; so quiet when it runs; functions/options so much better than the other brand. Even like the "musical notes" when it finishes instead of the old "beeping" sound.
