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.

I purchased this unit from Sears for a major kitchen renovation. I bought it primarily because it had the venting capability of 400 CFM's. After installing it I was dismayed to find that the venting capability is virtually nonexistent. It was so bad that I thought the fan was improperly installed, so I pulled it off the wall to double check it. Unfortunately, it was installed properly so it appears I am now saddled with an exhaust fan that doesn't suck. If you use the front burners on the range, and you have the fan on as high as it will go, steam from the pots rises straight up and blocks your view of the microwave oven. If you use the right rear burner steam floats up and to the right and goes under the cabinets.There is NO exhausting! None, zip, nada! It is apparently just a very poor design.

I have had no issues. Microwave works great.
Love this product
from sparta, ky
This microwave is both beautiful and works great. I replaced a Whirlpool microwave that was 9 years old and I love this one even more.
from Clive, IA
Bought this to replace our 23 year old microwave that was in the house when we bought it. Love the features and the preset options. The sensing technology works great and makes cooking much easier. Easy to install but my only complaint is that the side with the control panel is so heavy that it sags and has a little gap at the upper cupboard even though it's tight at the upper mounting screw. Beeper could be a bit louder. Overall great microwave with great useful features.
Good product with some reservations

We're happy with most of the features after 2 months usage (our old refer quit operating, after 12 years, so we bought all new matching appliances and liked Whirlpool best overall)-see comments:1)Really like most features, especially soften/melt & 4-speed fan (Literature doesn't say how many fan speeds).2)Beverage button doesn't automatically start for one cup-It should auto start after a few seconds wait if no numbers are pushed.2)Can't see the button names in low light-text size is too small or needs backlighting (very frustrating)3) Fan is loud in all speeds but all micros fans we've had are loud.4) High & low light level for bottom light is good.5)We wished for auto start when pushing 1-9 buttons to allow auto minute heating but pushing the 30 second button multiple times is OK!6) Installation was straight forward (!!!Make sure you save the cardboard packing that has the mounting hole template & read instructions before discarding anything!!!) The rigid board makes it easy to mark the hole locations verses using the separate paper template.7) We're not real strong so I covered top of range (installed range before micro) with plywood, then placed sturdy stool and wood blocking to gradually raise unit up (wife helped lifting an end while adding 2x4s and shims) until within about 1 inch of upper cabinet, then tipped unit rear up to engage wall mount, then pushed unit back while rotating it up snug to cabinet. Then placed wood blocking/shims under remaining space to temporarily hold unit in place before installing mounting bolts. (It's a hassle but beats ruining your backs if you're installing!).
got it a month ago. Love the sensors that turn the exhaust fan On during cooking. love the options to cook. sometimes it makes the weird noises on special cook. but nothing of an irritating type. its big and stylish. cooks perfect

Easy to Clean
from Olathe, Kansas
This was a replacement for a similar 5 year old microwave also from Whirlpool. This unit is much quieter, more user friendly and a joy to clean on the interior.

Very quiet, cuts cooking time and has a ton of features for the price we paid.
