Product Details

Whirlpool White Slide-In Gas Range, Model GW397WH

This self-cleaning, slide-in gas range offers 4.5 cu. ft. of oven space. The AccuBake® temperature management system provides consistent cooking temperatures, while a Keep Warm setting maintains serving temperatures. On top, 4 burners ignite electronically. A 14,000 BTU Power™ burner quickly sears steaks, stir-fry veggies or boils water. Plus, full-width grates provide the ultimate in surface flexibility.

Features:

  • Full-Width Burner Grates
    New easy-to-clean and dishwasher-safe grates span the entire cooktop for more flexibility. The satin finish resists wear and provides a smoother look and feel
  • Die-Cast Console
    The new console is tilted to an ergonomic angle that keeps it out of the reach of small children. The flush design provides a smoother surface for cleaning
  • 4.5 Cu. Ft. Oven Capacity
    Our largest-capacity slide-ins yet offer expanded oven capacity to handle oversized cooking jobs
  • Power™ Burners
    Generate the high heat needed for rapid boiling, searing, and frying - up to 16,000 BTUs
  • AccuBake® Temperature Management System
    Surrounds food with even temperatures for consistent results. A sensor monitors the oven temperature, turning on the bake element, the broil element or both simultaneously to achieve uniform baking results
  • Large Oven Window
    Set into a frameless door design, the new window is 40% larger than our previous model
  • Self-Cleaning System
    Automatically cleans the oven according to a preprogrammed cycle. No harsh chemicals or cleaners are required
  • Delay Bake
    Lets you program the oven to begin cooking at a pre-set time. Prepare food for baking when it's most convenient for you and find dinner ready according to your schedule
  • Sabbath Mode Feature
    Overrides the oven's automatic shut-off function, keeping it active for hours of uninterrupted cooking

We just passed a year and half with this stove/oven and we are so happy with it, I thought I should sit down and write a review. First it is a great looking style and all the touches are right and solid. The panel is at the perfect angle to easily see it while cooking. The stove grates are solid, they do not wiggle, they do not make any noise as you move pots across them from burner to burner, it is lock down solid. The controls have a good substantial feel to them. Our Thanksgiving turkey and Christmas prime rib both cooked faster and better than in any of our prior ovens. Cleaning is easy with good space between controls and burners and a nice pan. I can't believe I'm a fan but whomever designed this one should win an award, it is the best appliance decision we made in our remodel, I intend to purchase a second unit when we remodel my parent's house. I strongly reccomend this oven, sometimes a little hard to find in showrooms, but well worth finding it or ordering online if you can't see it in person, it's beautiful and tight.

Just after the limited one-year warranty was up, two of the numbers on the digital control panel quit working. I use extreme care in cleaning this, never spraying anything directly onto it, just wiping it down when it needed it. After the zero button quit working, which by the way is also for the presets, another number button quit working. After 18 months, the entire panel quit working except for the broiler button. At least its gas so I can still use the burners but for how much this range cost to begin with, it sure as heck should have lasted a LOT longer than 18 months. I wouldn't buy this if I knew it wouldn't last.

Avoid - Control Panel Keeps Failing

By 

from Palatine, IL

Comments about Whirlpool Black Slide-In Gas Range:

We moved into our new home a few months ago and this was the range that the previous owners had put in within the last 5 years when the redid the kitchen. Shortly after moving in the 9 stopped working, then one by one each number has failed. So I started going through all the documentation that the previous owner left Apparently this is not the first time this has failed. We have all of the manuals and instructions from this part being replaced. 2 control panels failing in less than 5 years, seems like really lousy product quality. I Was thinking of replacing the ERC to solve this but will probably buy a new non-whirlpool range.

Very nice stove

By 

from Wood Dale, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Black Slide-In Gas Range:

We've had this stove for about a month and it has some very nice fetures. The grates are closer to the burner than many other stoves so we can use lower heat. The burners start out high and have a minimun range so they never go out. Our previous stove the flame started out low and it was possible to dial it down too far and the flame would go out and just release gas - not very safe. The oven heats evenly and I like that there are 3 racks. I also like the sealed burners because we do spill a lot. The porcelain is easy to clean and while the black will not show heat discloration like out previous white stove, it does look smudgy at times.

Mostly good

Comments about Whirlpool Black Slide-In Gas Range:

I bought this almost a year ago and had many glitches to work out. Service visits to resolve these issues were mostly helpful. We remodeled two kitchens at the same time, all with whirlpool appliances. All other appliances have worked well.

I love my Range!

By 

from St. Paul, MN.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Slide-In Gas Range:

I bought this range 5 years ago. The only trouble that I have had was with the keypad. Excessive moisture will cause it to go out, and it did just that after one year. I did get it replaced and have not had a problem since. I am very careful now not to clean pad with water.

Beware of the keypad.

By 

from texas

Comments about Whirlpool Black Slide-In Gas Range:

I've enjoyed this range for almost exactly 6 years to the date of first use. Now the electronic keypad has stopped working. This makes it impossible to turn the oven on and thus no baking is possible. This is VERY frustrating!

Great Gas Stove

The new stove that came with our new house is great after 2 months of use. Only minor problem is cleaning the black top. It seems to leave a "smug" unless you are very careful
