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.

Good microwave

West Michigan 7/25/2019

We had a previous model that was very similar. Same size, same power rating. The old one seemed to always be stronger than 1200 watt and cook faster than any of the food directions said. This one seems to take longer to cook things (but it's on par with food directions now) but they seem cook more evenly than the previous model. The feet were uneven and it wobbled until we put little rubber stick on feet. It's very quiet in comparison.

Decent Microwave

SCResident 4/27/2019

Our 10 year old whirlpool microwave died and we needed a replacement. The size is about the same, but we had to buy a new trim lit to install it in the same opening.

Would be great if the door had a Handle

Penn State Peaches 4/26/2019

This was the replacement for the same model that did not last 6 months before developing a problem that could not be corrected. That problem was not related to the push button door opener. Am taking this opportunity to share my concern with microwaves with push button doors instead of handles, which seems to be the 'in thing' with manufacturers. Our previous microwave was a different brand name, but it also had to be 'slammed' to get it to work, which is why we replaced it. For 15 years we had microwave ovens with several different brand names, physical sizes and wattage in four facilities. All had door handles, could be quietly and gently closed, worked as expected and were still functioning when I left. We will continue to look for a counter top machine that has a door handle. Admittedly, our microwave use is reheating leftovers for two of us and warming water for my instant coffee. My husband would be pleased if I could just put in the time, power level, push the start button and have the warming process begin without all the DOOR signage that the microwave turns on so often. We have several other Whirlpool appliances that function well and are dependable. It is a disappointment to have the push-button door on the microwave that makes it not user-friendly in our home. Thank you for allowing me to share my concern with this feature.

I just replaced another Whirlpool microwave that lasted about 12 years. Hoping this one lasts just as long.

A nice replacement

who cares about the name 12/6/2018

After 18 years of faithful service our old Whirlpool microwave started making noises and the turntable became very jerky. We wanted another one just like the old one and found this one which was an updated version (including price) of the one we had. We didn't have to relearn how to use it because it had the same features as the old one.

Easy to Operate

rprice4499 4/20/2018

This microwave came with the newly built house my wife and I just purchased. It seems to be adequate but doesn't have that solid feel when you shut the door. Makes some mild sound when operating. It does get the job done though.
