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

The manufacturer's parts and labor warranty is typically for only 1 year but for as little as $99 for an appliance with a purchase price of under $500, you can have peace of mind for a total of five years. Kitchen package appliance coverage plans are available if you wish to protect multiple appliances at the time of purchase.

Did you know that the average cost for a service company to come to your home and diagnose an out-of-warranty appliance problem is $100.00. Once the problem is determined, there is the additional expense for parts and labor to resolve it. Appliance repairs can range between $150 and $500.

If you are concerned about spending money on a service contract you will never need, our New Leaf ServicePro extended service plans will refund 50% of the service contract purchase price to you if no covered appliances have service calls during the extended warranty coverage period. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Does the job!

BetsyB 5/6/2019

WE bought this with little research since our old one died. We are very happy with this new one,especially since it does the job for us and is quieter than our previous model

Wentworth 2 12/3/2018

I like this M/W very much but the interior lighting is far dimmer than I would prefer.

Good But With An Annoying Flaw

JMS4 11/27/2018

Good microwave but clock needs to be constantly reset. Called Whirlpool and they state that no documentation exists on this issue even though there are similar complaints about the clock on Lowe's website that have been responded to by a rep from Whirlpool. Whirlpool rep I spoke with said that I have to just keep resetting the clock since they don't have any documented complaints...totally unacceptable answer!

Disappointed . . .

Frustrated cookie 10/22/2018

Never did I think I had to check the options for my new Microwave to see if I could eliminate the jangling reminders that the 60 second warmup was complete. If I do not respond, it is like a spoiled child that screams out, "Come feed me now!" Every procedure includes a frustrating sound. We removed it from the kitchen and put it in the bar to make popcorn and bought another that doesn't make such noise.

Poor Customer Service

Premier Customer 5/8/2018

After this unit was built in above a wall oven the clock would frequently reset to zero after the door closes. I waited two weeks to contact customer service just to make sure I understood what conditions would cause the problem. When I contacted customer service I was treated as though I was trying to get something for free from Whirlpool. I was told to do exactly what I had been doing for two weeks and then "contact us if it continues". Within two hours I was contacting customer service with the same issue. Then I was told a decision could not be made at that level...for a stupid throw away unit. I am waiting for a call. I not only would not recommend this unit, I would not recommend Whirlpool.

After Three Months of Service

John P20 11/7/2017

I like the microwave and it does a fine job. I don't like the push release to open the door. It already sticks sometimes and does not reset the microwave causing it to do nothing until I open and close the door a second time. I would prefer a handle on the door that allows me to open it with no other mechanical connections.

Work wonderful and a great value

T-row 2/14/2017

I was looking to replace a counter top unit and went to Texas appliance to see what they had to offer me as a replacement. The sales associate was very knowledgeable about there products and suggested the whirlpool microwave. I actually installed it as a Wall unit above our stove. it was easy to install and has great features and is very efficient and quiet. we are looking to purchase the matching oven in the near future.

Powerful and Quiet

Mike Ro Wave 11/21/2016

I got this to replace what is practically the same microwave (I thought) from 1997. This is much better. Even though the old one listed the power at 1.6kW, this new model is evidently more efficient. It cooked bacon in about 75% of them time and it is far more quiet. The display is bluer than older Whirlpool appliances (that were more turquoise) but it is clear and easy to read. I have not used all of the myriad functions yet but I did use the trim kit to install over my oven and it looks great. Installation was very simple.
