      Disappointed in typically great brand!

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      About two days after we purchased this product, the second number on the display went out. This made the facts worse that not only do the shades of black not match the rest of my Whirlpool appliances but the digital displays do not match either- the oven is a darker blue than the microwave. Also, when the timer goes off, the beep is loud and very annoying. I think it is because I expect to stop the beeping when the door is opened or the "stop" button is pushed but the beep has a full cycle to complete and it will not stop for anything!! If I don't want to hear all those mind ringing beeps I have to stop it before it gets to zero. The door is very flimsy feeling when shutting and doesn't seem like it is very high quality. Whirlpool is my favorite appliance normally. I am disappointed in this one though.

      Fits in cabinet

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      We had bought a previous version of this model for one primary reason and that was a perfect fit for the cabinet. Only required a little trim. The previous one died twice. First time a interlock failed at about 3 years. This time we decided to replace verse repair. We dislike the color of the display. The earlier model matches the other appliances, this one does not. However the new display seems to be sharper. As the back of the microwave is agaist the wall it does not move around like past microwaves. Photo of how well it fits was posted with this review.

      Worst customer experience, 8 weeks and unresolved


      Got a microwave delivered that wont work. Been working with their service technicians that whirlpool sent out after multiple no shows. I still have a microwave that does not work. Their customer service wont take responsibility of the situation and they expect me to stay home 8-4 on any random day the technicians decide to show up, (3 failed attempts already). I have been very cooperative with them but clearly they dont care.

      Works well but quality issues with support ring

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      The microwave works well and would have given it a higher rating if it didn't have a quality issue. When I removed my microwave from its box I noticed that the support ring for the plate was broken. I complained to Whirlpool and they sent me a replacement part. Now after one month the replacement ring has broken again.

      Looks pretty, but works the same since 1990's

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      The aesthetics are pleasing, but it still operates and sounds like microwaves as they have always been made. I hoped by now that microwaves would be quieter, wouldn't take 1.5 sec to actually start the microwaves (you can tell by the sound as it ramps up), and the keys aren't actually touch, the keys are still buttons. The door is loud. You would think by now these wouldn't still have the same slamming door latches as the 90's models.

      so far so good

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Have been using my new microwave for a couple of weeks now and it's works well once we figured it out. Compared to our last microwave, this one seems to heat the outside a lot faster than the inside so that bowls and mugs are hot to the touch while the food or drink itself is merely warm. Took some getting use to and but working well so far.

      Pretty good product, great value foe the $

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      The Good: Gets very hot very quickly; not very noisy. The not so good: There's apparently no sensing mechanism as to when something's done; there's no simple re-heat option; instead, the user must pre-pick a specific number of minutes. The plastic shield on top of the instrument panel begins to stretch and warp in the first few days. Finally, the user manual leaves a lot to be desired.
