Decent microwave for the price. Not the quietest, but not the loudest either. Have had for 3 weeks and (touch wood) have had no issues with it. Fairly easy to install. Seems to stay clean outside and everything is simple to operate. Watch the reheat button as it really tends to heat things quickly and slightly overdo them, but that is minor. I don't use the microwave for much more than reheating or the occasional defrost (works nicely) or to do veggies(came out fine), but it works great so far.

This microwave slowly stopped working, and the magnotron completely gave out approximately 1 year and 4 months after installation. After speaking with Whirlpool customer service, they will NOT stand behind their product, only feeding me the same line of "you should have bought the extended warranty." Service + the part would almost equal what I paid for the microwave initially. After purchasing a new home, with a lot of whirlpool appliances, the fact that they did not step up to help us out or keep a loyal customer infuriates me. Do not buy this product. If you have, I hope your microwave doesn't suffer the same fate as ours.

Attractive and easy to use
from Buffalo, N.Y.
Comments about Whirlpool WMH2175XVQ White Microwave-Range Hood Combination:
Had one similar to this one for about 5 years. For quite some time I (absent-mindedly) lit candles every Friday night and placed them on the stove top right under the microwave which caused the door to melt. Although it worked perfectly, it looked awful, so I had to replace it, and of course, looked for the same kind. I'm very pleased with it and will certainly not be lighting candles anymore under the microwave.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent design both for new installations and replacement of old range hoods
from Plano, TX
This purchase was to replacing a 16 year old GE unit due to magnetron life. The new Whirlpool fit the same space, the exhaust vent was almost the same, but the mounting brackets and top mounting screws were much different. The only complaints are: 1. The GE unit featured "Press 1 or 2 or 3 for quickly entering the total minutes to run. The Whirlpool has only "Add 30 seconds". 2. An appliance of this quality and multiple features should at least have a lighted panel. It is impossible to use this unit without full room lighting. 3. The 'grease screens' on the bottom of this unit do fall out easily and do not have a specific position to lock into place. Great features are: Very quiet door latch smooth turntable action Much quieter exhaust fan Auto On exhaust fan if the unit gets too much heat from the cooktop Great color match to the old GE and our other appliances.

WELL WORTH THE MONEY, MUCH BETTER THAN MY OLD ONE, AND EASY TO INSTALL.
Chosen based on color-need, but good product
from Norfolk, NE
This was basically my only choice because I wanted to stay with the bisque color group. However, it has been a good product. The two things that I dislike about it are: the glass tray is very shallow, so if anything steams over onto the glass tray, it also spills onto the floor of the unit. That makes more mess to wipe up. I suppose they thought a flat glass tray would accommodate 9x13" pans well, BUT the downside is that spills are not contained in the glass tray. Also, I REALLY miss a delay start feature. Perhaps I have just not been able to find it, but it is pretty straight-forward, so I think this feature has been omitted. I will look for that in another purchase when this one needs to be replaced. Light over stove is okay, but did like more light from the unit this one replaced.
This oven is superb!
from Harahan, LA
With help of my son, By far the easiest oven I've ever installed. Instructions were very clear and precise. I highly recommend this microwave to everyone.
Very good microwave and hood.
from cleveland, ohio
Really like this microwave, only thing I miss is when you put in one or two minutes you have to key in 1 and then two zeros. My old one just did it for you.
This product had some issues
I bought this Microwave as I have always had good experience with Whirpool...however, a few months later, the stirofoam strip within the glass at the top of the door started drooping down and now is hanging across the front of the door. Not very pretty to look at daily. I tried to figure out how to take the door apart to fix it but could not figure it out. In addition, the light bulb for the light under the microwave went out in a few months.I went to go change it, thinking it would be easy, but the bulb was stuck and I could not get it out at all. Needless to say, I would not buy this product again
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Whirlpool WMH2175XVT Bisque Microwave-Range Hood Combination:
Solid value for a micro/hood combination. The only negative I found is that the light is set all the way at the back of the unit, so depending on your stove setup, it might not be as effective as you'd like. It is very bright, so that somewhat compensates for the poor design.

This product SUCKS!
By very frustrated!
from Logan, UT
Comments about Whirlpool WMH2175XVB Black Microwave-Range Hood Combination:
I have had this microwave for about 20 months. It came with my new house. After about 13 months it stopped heating. I called Whirlpool and they gladly fixed it. 7 months later, the SAME PROBLEM and this time Whirlpool could care less. I have read many other reviews about this same microwave and I'm obviously not the only one who has had this problem. I think WHIRLPOOL SUCKS and that they make VERY POOR QUALITY products!!!!! Don't waste your money $$$ cause you'll be replacing it in no time.
