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 have had this microwave for about 3 weeks now and I have to say its one of the best microwaves we have ever owned. It has sensor buttons for popcorn, potato, etc. we have only used the popcorn sensor but it has worked flawlessly. It is quiet and feels very sturdy. Dont hesitate to purchase this if you need a new microwave.

Ultra quiet and simple yo use
I'd wish it was easier to see the keypad.
Looks great, works great

When remodeling our kitchen we looked at lots of microwaves. This Whirlpool was the only one that fit the bill. Sharp-looking stainless steel, large interior, lots of easy-to-use features. We are very happy with it so far.My only complaint is that the under micro light isn't very bright. I will try a bigger bulb.
Need light on contro buttons

Great microwave, other than the control panel is dark & very difficult to see. Panel needs a light. We have to use flashlight to read and operate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had this microwave for about a month now. I love all the extra features it has. Very easy to clean and use.
Convenient and quiet
from West seneca, New York
Bought this to replace old range hood. Certainly much more attractive than our old one and it matches our stainless steel whirlpool oven. The fan is relatively quiet. The only downfall is it doesn't have an instant feature....my previous microwave let you push 1for 1 minute, 2 for 2 minutes etc.....which is very convenient. But in general, very nice appliance.
My other microwave stopped working and the serviceman recommended the whirlpool to me so we're trying it.
