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.

Functional & great looking

TXGIRL 10/5/2017

We bought this as part of our kitchen remodel. It fits perfectly above our stove top and looks nice. The one thing I don't like is the keyboard is on the door with make the part to the right of the handle bigger than I'm used to. I've almost hit myself in the head several times while closing the door. You also can't set the time while the door is open because the keypad is on the door. Other than that, I like all the functions, the look, and the space inside.

JUNK - DO NOT BUY

AK 9/2/2017

We paid extra to upgrade the microwave to this model when we bought our brand new home last year. Our 1 year warranty expired last month and the microwave has stopped working. Like many others, it is displays the "open and close door" message and no matter what you do, it will not start. I tried calling customer service but the call center is closed. Thanks for ruining our labor day weekend! We have Whirlpool appliances throughout the house including refrigerator, dishwasher, cooking range, washer and dryer. Hope they are not as bad as the microwave. We had GE appliances in our old home and even after 10 years, they worked like a charm.

Awful

Karen 8/18/2017

I bought new WHIRLPOOL over the stove microwave, oven, dishwasher & fridge almost 3 years ago...biggest mistake as a first time home owner...& I paid for extended warranties on these products...so far I've had to replace the door & parts to the MICROWAVE because it errors and gives a message to open/close the door before heating up anything...happened within 6 months...replaced parts after instructions to unplug/replug failed...AGAIN, less than 6 months later same error message, left unplugged until repair guy came...it worked, so there was nothing that could be done...ok, worked a few months more & had SAME error message...left unplugged over night, worked for a couple months & then same error message...I bought my appliances NEW...again, microwave not working again...With the fridge, products never really seem frozen even after temperature is increased...ice bucket takes about 2 full days to refill itself & frozen foods are semi frozen ...Im typically buying a 20lb bag of ice per week...dishwasher soap dispenser door was replaced in the first 6 months & only cleans the dishes when food is washed off prior to placing in the machine...even after trying multiple different cycles & dishwashing soaps...there are only 2 adults & 1 teen in the household using these appliances since purchased...older, previous fridge took up less space & held more items & after replacing appliances with EnergyStar rating, electric and water bills have increase...NEVER had any problems with old appliances that came with the purchase of the house.

This microwave was purchased as an upgrade in place of a very old and damaged microwave. What a difference the microwave heats up food quickly and is very easy to clean. This is my first convection microwave and I love the way it cooks. It also has a sensor to help determine how long food should be heated.

Don't buy this microwave

Biblios 5/24/2017

I am having the same problem as other reviewers: the display reads "open/close door" and the MW will not work. It is intermittent but it has not worked for days now. It was part of a new home upgraded appliance package, but many in the community have had this issue. There is, no question, a sensor design flaw in this product. Only reviewers who said they were part of a "sweepstakes entry" wrote favorable reviews of this MW. The design, also, is a problem - the door is huge and practically hits you when you open it.

MY first microwave which was installed a few months worked sporadically and would not operate for days at a time. Fortunately, the dealer ordered me a new one and installed it.

We got it as part of the appliance option for our home in dec 2014. since last few months it stopped working intermittently. it would says open and close the door even though the door was closed properly and then start working after some time. Now it has completely stopped working. I saw that somebody else too complained about this issues. Might be a product wide problem. its disappointing that it stopped working in such a short time.

Disappointed

Gary 4/21/2017

This was part of a new home purchase with us moving in July 2014. So, it's less than 3 years old now. We've had repair folks out 3 times to fix the same problem and now it's starting to happen again. It's tough because it's intermittent. The sensor in the door won't always sense the door is fully closed so the microwave won't work. We need to open and close the door multiple times to finally get it to register as closed and start. Doesn't happen every time either. We can go days, and sometimes weeks with no problem. I'm at the point of looking for a replacement by another manufacturer so I'll be ready next time it stops working.
