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.

Better Than GE But, Missing Features

Dave 10/17/2017

Quality unit but missing a couple features that were very convenient on the failed 6 year old GE Profile unit. 1. No Pause feature. 2. No quick start feature. I.E. Press 1 for one minute, 2 for two minutes, 3 for three minutes. However, you can press the "30 second" button twice for one minute, four times for two minutes, etc.

I don't like it at all I had almost the same micro for 10 ye

Cindy 9/16/2017

I had to say microwave just about for almost 10 years it died and I went and bought a new one supposedly a more improved Whirlpool microwave that was just about the same thing I absolutely hate the way you made it work I had to get a service person to come out to even tell me if it was working correctly I don't like the fact when I'm cooking something for 30 minutes that this thing comes on and click start clicking off and on every few minutes five seconds of 18 minutes on five seconds off 18 minutes on that absolutely makes me have to adjust my cooking time so I'm not happy at all I've had this microwave three weeks and I absolutely hate it but I'm stuck with that because I already paid for it I think you made too many adjustments to a really good product I actually had your official service person tell me I never heard of anybody cooking for 30 minutes well I have recipe books will you cook on high for an hour so if you made a microwave not efficient to do that then I have to throw a whole bunch of books away

Poor Quality

Gary K. 9/12/2017

Purchased this microwave brand new in April 2016. Now just 15 months later the magnetron needs to be replaced. Cost is more than we paid for whole unit. This after burning out light bulbs every couple of months. Also have 2 year old Whirlpool dishwasher that routinely has parts fall off of it. Obviously Whirlpool has no build quality anymore. Time to find a better brand.

Rob 9/7/2017

So far very pleased with this unit. Love the looks of it, with the exception of the grey secondary color instead of black. Works great and is super quiet unlike my older GE unit which was noisy as can be. The single over-range light is located in the back of the unit, but still provides sufficient light on the range, although a good portion of the light seems wasted on the back splash area. Overall, for the price (got it on sale) I would buy it again.

Would NOT buy again

Ross 8/28/2017

Since we bought it, the "sensor" cooking over cooks (burns) the food which we just dealt with the issue. Then at about 8 months it just stopped working every now and then which has to do with the door light - when it won't come on it will not work. I believe this has something to do with the door close switch being an issue. I see reviews as far back as the beginning of 2015 stating the same issue, so you would think it would have been fixed by our purchase of 9/16. We use THERE service people and they come out and break it completely (could work every now and then before) and then schedule an appointment for about 1.5 weeks out. Then they don't show up that day, in which we had to call them, and it was no big deal to them. My wife has now lost 2 days of work for this $ 289.00 paper weight. They told us we could leave a message for a manager but it could take up to 72 hours for them to call us back (WOW - great service). They scheduled us for another 1.25 weeks out now. I called Whirlpool and she said they couldn't do anything. So instead of just letting me take the microwave in and get it replaced, they are making a customer sit without their appliance for over a month and will pay for the guy to come out twice (at least if they get it right this time) which has to cost them a minimum of $ 75.00 per trip (forgetting parts and I'm being conservative on cost) - Willing to spend at least $ 150.00 on a microwave that probably costs them $ 150.00 to manufacturer and then have a upset customer. Not impressed with the unit or how they "service" it after in anyway.

Display Dim

Ann 8/24/2017

replaced old microwave and template did not match the actual location of the holes on the top of the microwave. Once installed, I cannot see anything in the display. I am 5'2" and have to stand on a stool in order to see the display. Microwave is at proper building code height. No way I'm taking it down now! seems to work OK but would like instructions on using the Sensa since I can't read the display it isn't very intuitive.
