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.

Worst Customer Service Ever

An Si 9/22/2017

My wmc30516as microwave stopped heating. I submitted a repair request online at whirlpool and was informed by the repair company that my model was under total replacement warranty and cannot be repaired. I was asked to call whirlpool customer service. I called up whirlpool support at least 3 times, was put on hold for 30 minutes at least twice, was lied to by customer service agents who said they will return my call, but disconnected and didn't call me back. None of the agents helped me. One agent put me on hold for 20 min because her "IT system was slow". My microwave has still not been fixed/replaced. I just don't have any more time to waste with whirlpool customer support. I am going to pay out of pocket to get another brand. Whirlpool phone support is the WORST.

Replacement microwave

Roaster the Moaster 8/29/2017

My first Montgomery Ward microwave purchased in the 80's was still running when I gave it to someone 17 years later. Our last microwave lasted less than 3 years. We'll see how well this one lasts. One month in we're not having any problems. This model doesn't have the option of selection of 1 button to specify and start for 1, 2, 3, minutes and I do miss that. It would be nice to have this one last a bit longer, but we'll just have to see.

Good microwave, but missing some features

Tyler 8/28/2017

The microwave works well and is easy to use, but I think it's missing some key features that we really liked about our last microwave (different brand). If you pushed 1-6 on the keypad, it would auto start for that allotted time. This microwave does not. Also, you cannot set the beeper volume on this microwave at all, which we really loved on our old one. It made it easy to use at night without disturbing our young kids. Overall, a nice microwave, but it does lack some nice features that I feel should be included with this type of microwave.

BURNOUT MICROWAVE - looks good, works well, but fails quickl

KJR 8/24/2017

My wife contacted me while I was at work saying the microwave was having major problems and she was concerned about a house fire. We had major arcing across our microwave with burn marks on the waveguide cover. We had a waveguide failed in less than three years of service on this appliance, but it was already out of warranty. The microwave was always kept very clean and seemed to have low usage. I contacted Whirlpool about a replacement part, and the service person indicated they do not manufacture waveguide replacement parts and never have, and they recommended replacing the entire appliance ($200-300). I was disappointed with Whirlpool's support for their appliances. From my understanding, most waveguide covers have a unique shape and must be precisely made because the mica material is somewhat fragile. Despite the lack of support, I fabricated my own waveguide for $5 in material and some of my time in the garage with a sharp box cutter knife. I think its unfortunate that more companies seem to be supporting their products less. I wonder why are appliances failing when they are still like new? Our kitchen and laundry room are filled with Whirlpool appliances, but with experiences like this I would recommend a different brand that makes appliances to last longer and provides a more comprehensive assortment of replacement parts to continue their service. After contacting Whirlpool last week about my issue and disappointment, I have not received any phone calls or emails to correct the issue.

Bad product from a good company

Unhappy 8/17/2017

Got this one as part of the builder package of our new home. It has always been loud with uneven heating. Highly unpredictable heating - The same cup of milk would heat differently each time. Too hot once and did not heat enough the next time. Right after just 2 years it stopped working. It makes one loud popping noise when turned on and does not heat food, the lights still turn on, the turntable rotates too. Now stuck with the trim kit which matches the oven beneath.... not sure what to do, since I do not want to invest in one more of these.

Works as expected

Brandon Mom 8/8/2017

This microwave was supplied by the builder of my new construction home. It is a good size, attractive, and works as one would expect it to. I get annoyed that it isn't as easy to open and close as I would have expected. It is also annoying that if I put something inside and want to later heat it, the microwave wants me to open the door again before it will start. Or if I heat something 30 seconds and then I know I will want to heat it another 30 seconds before serving, I am made to open and close the door before it will start cooking again. These are minor frustrations, but frustrations nonetheless. I am generally pleased with the product, though.
