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.

p lee 2/14/2017

It's a good microwave. The only very minor change I would suggest is the open button goes in pretty far when pushed, and it would be a smidge easier to open not going in as far.

Top of the line performance at a value price

Tim the old timer. 1/25/2017

This was a gift. Our over stove model different brand expired after just 2 years use. Was using our old Whirlpool micro that is more than 20 years old and was used from home to dorm and back. Daughter decided we needed a new one rather than use the old model that still works great. Whirlpool makes products that are friends for life.

Works great but buttons are hard to push

SusanE 1/23/2017

It's pretty, it's powerful, and it works like a charm - but you have to put plenty of muscle into whomping the buttons. Just getting the door to open takes so much force that the entire machine scoots backward. Other than that, it's great.

JuniorBob 1/18/2017

I recently purchased my microwave to replace the one that died on me. The location was a pre-existing space built in my kitchen 26 years ago. The new Whirlpool microwave not only fit the dimensional requirements I had, but is a great microwave that I am completely satisfied with.

Gramcracker 1/13/2017

My old (13 month) one died. I love the smaller size of the Whirlpool. It has plenty of power. The only thing I miss is the "one minute" button my old one had. I like that the door opens by pushing a large button in instead of pulling on the handle. I recommend this for anyone.

Sam the Weaver 12/27/2016

Our old microwave started to run with the door open. Not a healthy situation. Called whirlpool and they first tried to fix it, but within 3 months the same issue. So they replaced and installed a new one even though it was out of warranty by 4 years. New one is so quiet!

Happy with my choice

LuvChoices 12/27/2016

My 29 year old (yes that's right!) finally died and I have a whole lot of catching up on what's new with microwaves. Because of that plus I haven't had the Whirlpool all that long, I have given it 4 stars. With more use, I expect to give it that last star. With that said, I HAVE found it to be quiet cooking, peeps loud enough for me when done and, more importantly, easy to figure out how to operate it. I will agree with others that it does slide a little when I push the door open or push any of the buttons. But I'd rather have the buttons slightly stiff than be very easy. Think of the years' use to come which will probably loosen them up a tad. I love the white I chose, but it does come in black for those who want that color. I will also say it is larger than my old one (another brand); however, this one is 1200 watts and the old was only 1000, so maybe that's the reason why. And if you want to know, I think there is plenty of room for your casserole dish, if you use your microwave to cook food in them. Right now I am very happy with my choice in a microwave!

Nearly Exact Replacement

Rondel1 12/16/2016

Our Whirlpool Microwave oven had been used daily for 8-1/2 years. I expected it to begin to take longer to cook things as it got older but it never did; instead the door opener finally failed. I bought this model as the closest possible identical to the old one. It has a few more pre-programmed features but for the most I haven't had to learn anything new to be able to use it. It does everything I ask it to and does them well.

Pleasant Surprise

Cate 12/14/2016

I was in need of a new microwave as the previous Whirlpool accurate system decided to catch fire. I was reluctant to purchase this one but was encouraged to do so by a friend. It is quiet, efficient and does what I need it to do. I do not like the soft open button but otherwise an excellent buy.

Small And Hot

JOE 12/14/2016

It is nearly impossible to find a small (less than two cubic feet) microwave with a full 1200 watts. This one has those attributes. It also does not have a technology, used by two other manufacturers, that blows GFI outlets. So far, after a bit more than a week in service, I like it.

powerful, clean lines, easy to figure out how to work

jm 11/10/2016

This microwave is powerful! We've learned to be careful because it cooks so much faster than our old model, even tho' it was bigger. It looks very good, but I took off a star because it feels chintzy. The plastic feels and sounds cheap. The controls are all touch pad and have to be touched "just-so" in order to work (we installed this below the counter so that may be part of the issue). Runs very quietly (love that!) Would like to have a "keep warm" button but overall we're very satisfied with it.
