Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 481 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love this microwave! I love this microwave! It is very nice looking and I like the blue number display as well as the sounds it makes. I will tell you to measure carefully. I was told it would fit exactly where my old one fit and it did in the width, but the back was much taller than the old one and we had to cut some tile out to make it fit. We almost returned it, but glad we didn't - cutting the tile was fairly easy and it then went in very smoothly!! December 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Noisy The microwave itself works very well but the exhaust fan is annoying. On high speed it makes the obvious sound of the fan moving air, but on the other three speeds the fan motor whines at such an annoying tone that we have to either run it at high speed all of the time or turn it off. Not happy about that! December 10, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hate it just had it installed today, i started cooking and turned on the vent, it was useless. This is a 400 cfm and almost all the steam headed up towards my celing. The vent screen is in the middle of the unit. burners on the stove are on the sides of the stove not in the middle, the steam would go up and hit the metal and go sidewards up towards my ceilings. My son noticed it without me saying a thing, my whole house smelled like cooking odors and that was just one time cooking. I had to slide my pot towards the middle half way off the burner in order for it to suck the steam up! what a waste! Also, other reviewers were right about the light, it sits back way too far.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by doesnt last great while lasted one year only now no heating but blower still works ???? December 25, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice, But Installers Beware! It's a great looking unit, which is a definite upgrade from the WMH53520AS it replaces. The price is very competitive with other brands, and all the bells and whistles you could want are there. I've only had it for a week so I can't comment on it's durability, but it's predecessor received high marks in this area. So why 3 stars? There is a hinge cover molded into the microwave's door, that protrudes above the top line of the microwave. If you have frameless kitchen cabinets, there is an excellent chance that the bottom of your cabinet door will either hit, or scrape against the microwave's hinge cover when you swing your cabinet door open. I discovered this problem after an otherwise, easy installation process. So I had to take the thing down, and put a few washers between my kitchen cabinet and the top of the microwave, to allow clearance for the door to open. Of course, this also meant lowering the rear mounting bracket by the same measurement as the thickness of the washers to keep the unit level. A HUGE waste of my time and extremely annoying. Had Whirlpool made buyers/installers aware of this design flaw, and provided spacers for this type of installation, I would rate this unit with 4 stars. In the mean time, if installing this unit under frameless cabinets, I suggest lowering the mounting bracket 3/16" below what the instructions say, and using spacers of the same thickness as that measurement on the two mounting screws between your cabinet and the oven. I'm not recommending this product as an acknowledgment that while it may otherwise be a great unit, someone in the design department at Whirlpool seriously dropped the ball. April 1, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not so good experience I bought this microwave from home depot online. When I received it and got it installed the fan made a crazy loud noise on high setting and weird buzzing noise on medium and low setting. When I called Home Depot they asked me to call Whirlpool. Then Whirlpool sent someone for service and repair. A part had to be ordered and replaced on a NEW Microwave to get rid of the buzzing noise and this all took more than a week. I asked whirlpool and Hope Depot to replace microwave with a new one and ho help. I hate to see a part replaced on a brand new microwave. The fan still make loud noise...The buzzing sound is gone. Horrible experience with Home Depot more because of Whirlpool. April 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleased! Microwave looks beautiful and functions excellently. February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase After looking at what seemed like hundreds of microwaves, I decided to settle for one that others had recommended based on their reviews. So far, I can say this microwave has met all of my expectations. This microwave looks great and the simple design keeps cleaning simple too. February 10, 2015
