Summary: We remodeled our Kitchen 5 years ago. We bought all Whirlpool Gold appliances and this microwave has been a joke! We don't use our microwave very much and it bit the dust yesterday. Very disappointed!
Summary: I bought this mircrowave in 2009. After using it a few years the handle broke off. It cost more to replace the door almost than the entire microwave!!! This product is poor workmanship. I purchased the "gold" brand whirlpool products when i rennovated my entire kitchen. This included 4 major whirlpool applicances. No more!!! I am shopping for a new microwave and stove top that doesn't hve "Whirlpool" attached to the label.
Summary: I uought this microwave as part of my upgraded appliance package when I built my home in 2005. I had 2 service calls in 2005 and 1 in 2006. Now the unit is 6 years old and it is not working again. I am replacing it. I already have more money into it in service calls then I paid for it.(warranty was a joke). Do not buy Whirlpool anything. Every appliance had an issue. And to think I paid more for the "better" brand.
Summary: We purchased this unit a month ago . We chose it over other brands/models because it has superior lighting, is very quiet ( has an internal fan for circuitry cooling besides the top blower), has a 4-speed blower, and is large actually measuring out at almost 1.93 cu.ft rather than the 1.8 that is specified. It has some of the same features as the more expensive Whirlpool Gold model GH5184.
