First I'll say I haven't used each function yet, but I am very impressed overall so far. The person before me states the light level is poor, but I do not agree. The light level is what I need and I have no complaints. I think sometimes kitchens are set up in that there isn't sufficient lighting to begin with. Why would you expect a microwave light to compensate for that? When the microwave is operating it is quiet. I am impressed with the fan, quiet and appears to be strong. I was concerned about the heat coming off my gas range but so far the auto sensor fan has not come on, so now I just wait and see if it does when I have more than two of my large burners on. The interior is sleek and nice to see instead of the standard white. I spent considerable time researching what is out there to replace my GE that died after almost 11 years, and found this one had all the features and style I was looking for.

Microwave is performing well overall. Controls are easy to use even with LOTS of options. Interior is, so far, really non-stick and easy to clean. Exhaust fan exhibits some notable air flow noise, but has a better draw than my previous experience with similar units. Now the other half of the story... Upon installation found bracket that supports rear of unit was barely sufficient; one end of bracket bent under the load during installation. Rather than trust a questionable bracket, I swapped it with the remounted Maytag bracket (also a Whirlpool product) that it was supposed to be replacing. Upon turning on the surface range light, it blew almost instantly - disappointing but OK, minor. When I went to replace the bulb discovered that during assembly, someone had stabilized the light bracket with a large glob of silicone caulk (see photo) that also caulked in the bulb (likely damaging it as well). Caulk was carefully removed with a razor knife, bulb replaced, and all are now working well. Could only recommend this product line with reservations given anomalies observed and overcome during installation. Whirlpool reputation could benefit from some better Quality Assurance during design and assembly... Not everyone is willing to improvise as such on a new purchase.

We love our new Whirlpool microwave... it's very QUIET - fans are not loud. We like the light choices, easy to clean interior, multiple options for use... very happy and it certainly dresses up our kitchen...
So far, so good

Bought to replace 20 yr old. Price point biggest seller. Every thing seems OK but needs back lighting for key pad.

I bought this microwave three months ago. It hardly has to be cleaned, is quiet and cooks evenly. It is so pretty, too!!
What A Great Microwave!
from Tampa, FL
This microwave came built into our new home, so I didn't have a choice, but I'm glad I didn't. It's a great microwave and does just about everything one could hope a microwave does. I love the non-stick interior as it's a breeze to clean up and it's really large inside and handles larger casserole dishes than my previous appliance. Based on past experience with Whirlpool appliances, I expect to have many trouble free years with this.
