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.

OTR Model WMH53520CW-5 microwave

Sharon 3/13/2017

I like the bigger size and am still just trying it out on different foods. I don't feel this heats my foods up as quickly as my previous Maytag model, but am learning to adjust to the correct times. One thing I'm not pleased with is the tone of it when the cycle is done. It's way too quiet. If I step out of the room, I do not even hear it. And I haven't figured out yet if I can increase the volume of that tone. So far it's cooked/heated up anything I've put into it. I chose this model because I was looking for one that had the same options as my Maytag. The 'hold warm' is very important in my household. And this one had that option along with many of the others that the Maytag had.

Great features, noisy fan.

MicroCook 2/1/2017

Pros: this 2.0 cu.ft. OTR microwave works well, is very quiet (except fan), has a nice selection of presets, a 14" turntable, the interior cleans up easily, and has a pleasing end of cycle sound. Cons: Fan is loud at all settings, paltry almost useless user guide, and the dual brightness work surface light is too far back and illuminates the stove control panel well, but not the rest of the cooking surface. It's a 40w incandescent bulb rather than a more efficient LED; and when I tried a brighter LED replacement which was significantly better on the brightest setting, I found that at the OFF setting the LED bulb does not go off but stays dimly on (with either a dimmable or non-dimmable LED bulb). Must have to do with the dimming circuit in the switch, but annoying. Also annoying is that included mid level cooking rack can't be left in the microwave when not using according to instructions.

I Rate it #1

SGSanctuary 1/2/2017

I love this 1000 watt microwave. It has 2 shelves which is very important if you cook a lot. It also has an interior that is a breeze to clean. I picked this one mainly because of all the 1 step buttons. The soften button is great for butter. The exterior is bright white and blends with all my new appliances. You will not be disappointed! And the bell sound when it is done is so cute! Didn't hear it the 1st time....don't worry it will keep repeating!

Time will tell.

Mike 11/17/2016

Our microwave was included in the recall due to potential arching issue. So I am considering the quality of the replacement microwave and the recall process. We chose this microwave based on consumer reviews. It meets all of our needs. We enjoy the easy clean interior and ease of use (simple controls). Happy with the replacement unit. Also glad the manufacturer did the right thing and replaced the recalled unit with a new one. The install team was very good. My only issue was the 3 weeks from the time we unplugged the recall unit to the day that the new one was installed. Maybe that is considered a reasonable response time but a long time to go without a microwave. Overall satisfied with the unit and the recall process and solution.

Microwave/Vent Unit Fulfills All Needs

Retired electrical engineer 11/11/2016

We bought this unit to replace a failed unit by another manufacturer. This unit had served for about 12 years, and had some sort of control failure. In 12 years, technology has improved, so that the new Whirlpool unit has better performance -- more power, and more interior space. We believe that it is a better value than the unit it has replaced.

More features than i need!

Amy Jo 11/10/2016

This is a very easy-to-use microwave. There are many features, most I probably won't ever use! The clock dims and is motion activated so brightens when someone is near. The rack is removable, as is the glass place, which makes cleaning easy. The interior surface is a silver (not sure of the material) liner, which is also easy to clean.
