Hi Ladies - I don't hang out here too much since I was married last year but I know many of us are buying houses and moving and I wanted to share my experience with hot water heaters with you guys so you don't make the same mistake we did. We bought a hot water heater from Lowes - they are the only retailer of Whirlpool hot water heaters and it's been a nightmare. We bought it less than three years ago and after a year it broke on Dec 23, I had to beg a UPS driver to deliver the part early so we had hot water over Christmas. Fast forward 2 years and the hotwater heater is shot and has to be replaced. Whirlpool will only pay for the replacement parts, not labor. We are on the hook for another $300+ for installation! Not too mention having no hot water for 4+ days. Please Google Whirlpool hotwater heaters before you buy one. We are so disappointed with the product we decided we'd rather pay for a different brand than risk another Whirlpool.
