Whirlpool - Energy Smart water heater factory service
I purchased this water heater from Lowes in Nov, 2008. It has shut off several times and just last Friday it quit (Dec 04, 2009. I checked the supply current and the elements and all was ok. The heater would only turn on momentarily and then turn off. It has the automatic box on top. I called the service number provided by Whirlpool and was connected to a female representative whom I could hardly understand due to a heavy accent. She told me to reset the controls and see if it wouldcome on, it came on momentarily and she said it is ok now. It turned off again. I called Lowes and they said they no longer replace defective water heaters. So, we are without hot water for the weekend and I will have to try another call th their service on Monday. I wish I had never seen this water heater. $400.00 for junk!!!!
