We purchased this as a replacement for an older SHARP model. We are pleased that it is very quiet when running, the vent is much more quiet than the appliance we replaced and we like the look of this microwave very much! The only con is that it sticks out very far and that the vent is on the top. Like the previous review mentioning this issue, there is no fix for this yet. Seems Whirlpool should have designed an after market screen to prevent things from falling into the vent and becoming lodged inside. Also this is very heavy and somewhat tough to install for one person due to its weight and size. Other than that, we're pretty please and would recommend to a friend!

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.

No bells & whistles and "basically" a superb appliance...
from Norristown, PA, United States
Being so dependent on my microwave, needless to say I wasted no time in replacing my "GE" unit after it died. After searching hi and lo for the best price, and the best manufacturer via Consumer reports, I decided on a Whirlpool, and I'm so happy I did! Funny story; after I purchased this particular unit, I happen to be walking through an appliance dept, in another store, when I witnessed and heard two salesmen pitching a sale to a potential female buyer. They were trying to persuade the customer into buying a Samsung. Only because I had read bad reviews on this manufacturer, regarding microwaves, I could not in good conscience walk away and not share my personal experience in buying a Whirlpool. After I "psst" her away from being prey to hungry wolves;) I gave her the skinny. She appeared relieved and very grateful and thanked me, the salesmen, not so much:)

Had to replace old microwave. The installation was a snap, The features compared to much higher priced units.

Purchased this two weeks ago. It was easy to install with directions that were well written and not at all confusing.
Most important feature: Easy to use
from Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, United States
I bought this about a month ago because my old one just gave out. I remodel my kitchen and this microwave looks absolutely wonderful. No problem with installation. I use it everyday and just love it.
Shiny and easy to clean

This was a replacement for a black one that finally died. Love the stainless steel!

This is a great microwave, especially for the price. We were replacing an old microwave that blew. This microwave doesn't have as much wattage as our old microwave but you can't tell. The only reason I gave it 4 Stars instead of 5 is that it is quite loud when it is running. Overall it is a great product for the price though. Would definitely recommend.

I had to replace my older model microwave and was disappointed to see the features were less on the newer than on my older one. This one doesn't even have a pizza button. No Whirlpool symbol to match my stove and refrigerator either. It looks like a generic appliance.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
It's all good
