Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

So Quiet!

My other microwave went out and I needed one quickly! This one fit the bill perfectly! I have enjoyed using it! It is very quiet and simple to use!

ST1733 7/8/2019

This is the 3rd one I've bought over the last 15 yrs. This one is getting harder and harder to find so I'm very thankful that I did. All my appliances are whirlpool and never had any regrets.

Same as previous microwave

llucy 6/3/2019

I was looking for a replacement for my old Whirlpool and found this slightly updated but exact same model as before. It fits the opening for my microwave perfectly. It may even be a little quieter. I love it.

Size and ease of using

neto1218 6/3/2019

Had for short time but so far I like. Little smaller than the Panasonic I had but still looks good in cabinet build for it. Seems to cook a little faster than old one but I also like that. Controls are easy to use once I fiqured out it did not have a Start or Cancel button. I like the preset buttons for pizza, pop corn etc.. Would recommend to friend!

Start and stop cooking buttons not marked properly

Narender1 5/24/2019

The previous 2 Whirlpool Microwaves developed rust inside the machines unlike other brand name Microwave I still have. I bought this China made Whirlpool brand again as I have limited space in the location due to the trim in kitchen cabinet. If this one also develops rust, I will not buy any Whirlpool brand again.

Nice looking, powerful, and MANY BEEPS to call you

AMERK 4/16/2019

Great looking, easy to use, powerful microwave. It is a very nice machine but the downside is when it is done it beeps and beeps. Opening it doesn't stop the beeps until they complete all the beeps. We had to move it to not wake our son every morning before we go to work. If you don't have to worry about the completion beep noise it is great!

Too many beeps!

Alice40 3/18/2019

I returned this product because of the annoying beeping. It worked very well otherwise. I contacted Whirlpool to see if there was a mute or some way to eliminate some of the sounds. No luck. One sequence had 5 beeps at the end. Most other brands have one or two at most. If the sound does not bother you this is a very nice oven.

?? my Microwave!

Dor R 3/12/2019

I bought this microwave after my 20 year old Whirlpool microwave stopped working. I am very happy with this purchase but the button is very stiff to open. Hopefully time will cause it to loosen up. Miss the baked goods button but love the sensor cooking and is very quiet!

Perfect for us

Judygb 12/6/2018

This microwave turns out to be exactly what we need. Nice, clear operating instructions and slightly smaller footprint in our kitchen. Handles the largest cookware we typically use which is a nice feature. I chose white and the clean lines of the unit itself make it actually nice to look at. We trust the Whirlpool name and have several of their products.

Does the cooking quickly and evenly

Mike75 10/16/2018

Does everything we need it to do. Works well. The only thing I don't care for is opening the door. I would prefer a handle versus using the pushbutton. Pushing the button hard enough to open slides the oven on the countertop.

Pleasant surprise

Teee 4/11/2018

I had to replace my microwave and was pleasantly surprised how efficient and quiet it was, compared to my old one. It heats food in half the time as my old one. So glad I purchased it!
