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 looking microwave with a ton of features

Gourmet chef I ain't 3/15/2017

I bought this microwave oven as a replacement for a GE that suddenly quit in between two bowls of oatmeal. That was the second GE appliance failure in a three-month span (the first was the refrigerator) and while I was researching a purchase, Whirlpool refrigerators stood out from both styling and functional point of view. That made buying a microwave replacement easy - I bought one with finish matching the refrigerator and the set of functions I thought would be useful in my household. Great product, looks awesome and performs very well.

Works great except for the inner fan constantly running...

Lori in Vermont 12/30/2016

I got this almost 2 months ago, in a brand new home. Things were great for about a week, then an inner fan started running constantly unless the door was open. I'm still working with Whirlpool and the service person in my area to resolve this matter, so I really can't give a complete and accurate review, unfortunately.

Would definitely buy again

Brian 12/27/2016

I bought the Whirlpool microwave about a month ago. The microwave is pretty large and sticks out farther than my last microwave; however it is a very good machine. Straight forward heating controls, you can quickly type in the time and hit start. It heats food very evenly which is very nice when heating larger items. I am a bit worried about the push button numbers and controls, I don't know how they will wear... all in all it's an awesome product; I would buy again and I highly recommend.

I am a big fan of Whirlpool. This one is the best yet. The panel is smaller so the tray is larger. I can cook more then one dish at a time. It does have a cooking rack but I don't use it. Sensor cooking is great it decides when your meal is done. Love it.

This microwave is a replacement for a recalled model. That one would have been 1 star... I had to repair it once, just a year after purchased, and it was going again. The replacement one seems to be working well. I like the ease of use, clear controls and it's sensing ability. Hopefully the issues with the old model have been resolved. I can't tell any difference between the two.
