The unit took two men to install as it was heavy and awkward. The open louvers above the door invites dust to come into this area - should be sealed off (like other models). There is an annoying "ticking" noise when in use. The glass plate is difficult to replace once it has been washed as the turning ring beneath it does not stay in place. The unit does a good job cooking the food and that is what it was designed for so I would recommend it to others. The price paid was similar to the first "above the stove" microwave which we purchased but the quality of the unit is no where close to the quality of our first unit.

We purchased this model from a different company - either way it is poorly designed and flimsy. The plastic vent cover (above the door) broke near one of the screws when changing the carbon filter because the plastic is very thin in that location. That is poor design because the filter needs to be changed periodically. After about 9 months, the plastic panel on the right (where all the buttons are) started to come loose. When I took it off, I found that it was held on the unit by 4 very thin plastic hooks which all broke. Mind you, it's used by my wife and I (adults), and we haven't abused it. Finally, we were cleaning it the other day (1.5 years since we bought it), and the plastic trim around the door was starting to crack just below the window. I have no idea how that happened, but it's another example of poor design.

Blends right in
from Byron Center, MI
We built the house we are in about 2 years ago. All the appliances have the whirlpool parent company behind them. Wouldn't have it any other way.
Improve quality to rescue brand reputation.
from Minneapolis, MN
Within 8 months if purchase, our WMH1163XVQ (white) began to deteriorate. The front panel finish is peeling and flaking, the area where the handle mounts is cracking, and the interior strip where the door closes flush is likewise cracking. I've read numerous reviews complaining of the same inferior quality. As a remedy, Whirlpool warrantees the door, provides a replacement, and then the consumer is out of options. As a result, a product that should last 10 years like our last one lasts less than two before consumers desire to replace what looks so unacceptable.
Installation was easy, replaced an older version of the same unit.
Good solid microwave
from Dallastown, Pa
The microwave is a great product for the price. It doesn't have any special features but performs well if you just use it for basic things.
It works for me!
from Tuscaloosa, AL
This microwave does everything that it's supposed to do. I really like the fact that it reminds you when you have something inside. The only issue I have with my microwave is the film on the inside of the door has a bubble in it...meaning, if I wanted to, I could stick my finger inside the film and pull it off the door.
