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.

Hard to open

madge65 5/31/2019

I like all but one thing about this oven. It is too hard to open for old people with arthritic fingers. It should have a handle that you can just grab hold of and open the oven.

Excellent microwave

Jim5812 5/4/2019

Easy to use and looks great in our kitchen! A great addition to replace an old worn out microwave and the microwave kit makes it look custom!

I bought an identical microwave less than a year ago and began having problems. I hope the replacement does not have the same problems.

I bought this a year ago and it was still under warranty for a replacement. This is nicer and was installed for free. Love Whirlpool.

Good and Bad

Sklear 9/19/2018

The microwave is large, powerful, and whisper quiet, but the door is difficult to open. Depressing the button to open the door required a lot of pressure and once depressed the door takes one to two seconds to open. I would have returned it to the store, but it was the only model with a frame kit that fit the custom opening.

Niad 8/22/2018

I bought this for one of our classrooms at a Head Start and the teachers just adore it because it is large enough for them to cook projects for their whole class.

AJFL 8/17/2018

This came with the home that I purchased but so far it works great. It took awhile to figure out how to turn it on since it does not actually have the standard buttons that most microwaves have.

TOBl 4/5/2018

Pleased with my microwave oven. Wide range of features and so quite. Only feature I would want to see improved is easier door opener. The old one I replaced had a bar on the bottom of the door that required little effort. Really like the retail store and people where I bought it.

Thank you Whirlpool

Snewt453 4/2/2018

I bought this to replace the GE model that failed just over a year of purchasing. Very pleased with the purchase and will not go back to GE ever. The service was very poor when it came to ordering a replacement. The model we ordered was discontinued and we didn't know so they shipped the wrong model wrong color and then they tried to say we ordered wrong on our end. Whirlpool for life.

Replacement for old model

Burke04 1/29/2018

Bought as a replacement for the microwave that came with the house. This one is very similar in style & features and fit in the wall space where the previous one had been. We were able to use the trim kit from the old one - not an exact fit but it worked and we are probably the only ones that would even notice it. The microwave works fine so far; nice and roomy but this one doesn't have the optional rack like the old one.

I upgraded from a small microwave to this larger one and I am glad. I am able to defrost larger items with the weight defrost and other items with the timed defrost.
