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.

Piece of Junk!

M123456 10/22/2019

I purchased this microwave a little over a year ago from Ferguson. The number 3 on the key pad had stopped working, then a week later some of the other numbers stopped working. So I contacted Ferguson who told me that it is over a year now and no longer under warranty and they cannot do anything about it. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! Now it completely stopped working. Using my over 20 year old microwave now, glad I didn't throw it out yet!

Model WMC30516as0 serial xv73701867

Raj Kaur 10/4/2019

Some of the buttons stopped working including the start button. The purchase was made in November 2017 so the warranty is not valid. I tried power cycled the unit but still it turns on but can't function. I called Whirlpool they said it the warranty is for 1yr only this is my second One in less than 3 yrs I am not happy with the brand.

Turn plate

funvee 9/16/2019

The turnable plate ring is not flat and it causes the plate to be unbalanced.

Very Quiet

dave1011 9/14/2019

These microwaves are very good overall in performance. They are quiet and cook food well. However, the last one I had similar to this one starting having issues with the controller after a year and 8 months. First the display started to lose segments and then it wouldn't turn on to heat. It started working again, but sometimes a door error is present and the door needs to be opened and closed to get it to work. My hope is that this is a rare occurrence and that this new one will not exhibit the same issues so soon.

Start button issue

Nancyhh 4/23/2019

I bought it in Costco 2017, the start button sometimes was good, sometimes didn't work, but today it totally died. From the first month I started to use it, the plastic film covered on the start button and cancel button were broken, now almost all the film on the buttons are broken. My first microwave is still work well, it's Panasonic 20 years ago. Unfortunately, this whirlpool microwave is beyond the Costco 2-year-warranty only 1 month. The customer sevice represenative said he countertop microwaves were not repairable items. I have to recycle it.

Very Disappointing

ellenellen 11/6/2018

bought online. chose Whirlpool because my over the counter Whirlpool is lovely, and because other brands have higher house fire incidents. This countertop product is poorly designed, clunky, sharp corners. Keypad panel is hard to read, small print, on and off difficult to make sense of. Very industrial, cheap, clunky. Now when I turn it on it makes a loud roaring sound the first 15-20 seconds, then subsides into the usual microwave hum. I really hate having it in my kitchen.
