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.

Awful auto fan

Mary 8/19/2017

Cleaning my oven for first time since I got new whirlpool microwave (midel#WMH31017FW) and all of a sudden fan comes on and we can't turn it off. We thought our house was burning down or something and almost called the fire dept. other thing operating this machine is extremely complicated. Hate looking on the inside to see what numbers to punch before waving anything. Want my old simple microwave back

Stopped working after 3 months of use

Dan 3/23/2017

Started using the brand new microwave in November 2016 and after 2-3 months of use it began having issues. First, the switch for the door quit working. Sometimes, when the door was opened the light would not come on or it would flicker off and on. Sometimes, when the door was closed and you attempted to heat something it would think the door was still open and give you a "door" error. Now it has quit heating food all together. It will run, but when you take the food out it is still cold. Very disappointed in Whirlpool with this product. Even worse they won't replace it, they will only have it repaired. I fear that Whirlpool's quality and the pride they take in their products is following the rest of the undependable brands. They should have stood by their product and replaced it, no questions asked.

Good Microwave Oven With Some Caveats

BeethovenBuff 3/22/2017

Not a bad Microwave oven. We had it installed 1 1/2 years ago and have used it daily since. It is relatively quiet and does the job if the instructions for re-heating and cooking are followed. It is very nice looking and matches our Whirlpool glass cook-top range. My rating reflects two elements: The interior light does not turn on very frequently, so the oven will not work. I slap my hand to the side of the inside of the oven and sometimes, not always, works. My second complaint is there is no "Pause" control and one must turn it off and restart, which is a nuisance. I would recommend this oven, if someone could "walk me through" how to fix the light for reliable use.

Issues w Cooktop ligh

Melanie 3/13/2017

I can NOT figure out the proper bulb to replace the Cooktop light and it continues to go out.... the official manual does not state what type of bulb and I can't find the specs on this website either which is very frustrating. I find ease of use not too be intuitive- especially when I want to use the defrost or melt option.

Waste of Money Doesn't perform basic functions

Sini 3/1/2017

This microwave was installed in my new home so I am the first owner and began using it within a month or 2 of installation. I never thought something as simple as making microwave popcorn would be difficult for a microwave. I have used plenty of 1000W microwaves for the same brand and size of microwave popcorn. The bags do not pop the same way in this microwave as they do in multiple other 1000W. I even tested the same brand and size in the microwaves of friends with 1000W microwaves and consistently found that the other microwaves were able to pop the bags fully. The same issue happens with using a microwave popper (also tried in other 1000W microwaves where it works perfectly). As for heating things it takes 2-3 minutes to heat a cup of water. Its harder to tell with reheating items because I usually just put them in longer but with popcorn leaving it in longer just leads to burnt popcorn. I contacted Whirlpool and they sent a repairman who did some (in my opinion) very nonstandarized testing (he measured the rate of rise in temperature of a cup of water using my pyrex glass measuring cup not a standardized cup). He said it was heating just below the range. He tried to tell me that it was just one degree below so nothing should be done and I said the range is there for a reason. He returned and replaced some parts then said it was one degree above the range. The bottom line is that my microwave still does not make popcorn. I only use it to reheat food and make popcorn (almost on a daily basis with my previous microwaves) so it is completely useless. I hate to have to buy a brand new one and pay for installation when I did not even have the opportunity to pick a better product and this one has not worked from day one. Whirlpool should make a product that meets basic customer expectations and this does not!

Terrible Microwave

Julie 2/21/2017

We purchased a new home October 2016 and the microwave came with the house. If we are using the stove and the microwave decides it's too hot the fan comes on high and won't stop for an extremely long time. We can't hear the television for the duration of the fan's use. We unplug the microwave and it stops, but this is not acceptable.
