Whirlpool Hotwater Heaters are a flood waiting to happen
Whirlpool 10 year 50 gallon water heater - Complaint
I had a 10 year, 50 gallon Whirlpool hot water heater installed on 9/11/2007 by Lowes.
On September 3, 2011 (that's slightly less than 4 years) it busted from corrosion, flooding 3200 square feet of house, destroying hardwood floors, walls, etc.
Lowes was no help, told me to call Whirlpool and the manager laughed "good luck, they're terrible."
I was offered a new hot water heater, no repairs, no install.
I'm going to be out over $48,000 for my floors because of Lowes and Whirlpool.
Worst. Product. EVER.
