3.0 out of 5 stars Very good for the price, with some reservations February 20, 2013
I purchased and installed the WMH31017AB, the black version of this microwave. Pros: a major consumer magazine rates Whirlpool tops in reliability. At its price this is, as expected, a pretty basic microwave, but fulfills our needs. It heats well, is (in black) quite attractive, the microwave and fan are quiet, controls are convenient for basic operations. Cons: one of the installation templates is printed on the cardboard packaging, the edges of which shred when cut, making the template difficult to use accurately. The bolts supplied will not work in a deep cabinet and it took trips to four hardware stores to find longer replacements. The instructions did not include an option to hardwire the electrical connection, so I had to swallow hard and cut the cord without knowing what I'd find once I had (turned out not to be a problem). I exhausted through the wall, but there's an outlet for internal exhaust, and it opens upwards towards the ceiling. And I mean OPENS. There's no grid to keep small objects from falling into the body of the microwave from the cabinet above. This is atrocious design! I used some semi-rigid plastic screen and clear silicone sealant to protect this area. The user instructions which come with the oven are totally inadequate, and Whirlpool's website doesn't seem to have any more. Just as an example, it says to touch COOK, enter the number code of food item, enter quantiy, then touch the Start control. But there's no list of food item codes. I'd still recommend the microwave for those who are willing to deal with these issues.

Update: I contacted Whirlpool: It turns out the food item codes are behind the door. I guess I should have noticed, but it would be nice if the user instructions referenced this. As I wrote above, they are very cursory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Think you get more if you pay more? Wrong! April 16, 2013
By Thomas
Verified Purchase
You will not get a better microwave than this, unless you are determined to add features that you will never use. Duh! I was quoted a repair bill by GE service of $450 to fix my 11 year old GE microwave. The old one popped out and the new one was in within 45 minutes. Yes, it takes two people to do it and, yes, one of the two has to have a brain, (OK, it wasn't me, it was the other guy!) but this is no big deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best and Biggest microwave I have ever owned. May 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought a home and needed a new above the range microwave to replace a bad one. I read reviews on several websites and decided on this one...It was one of my best buys ever !!!Fits nicely, looks great and does the best job you could ask for. When I have followed directions on TV Dinners in other microwaves, I still had to do more time to get mashed potatoes as hot as needed. Not with this baby, perfect on the stated timing. Great product and great delivery from Amazon. You must do the Amazon Prime plan. It has given me products to make my move more enjoyable and with quick delivery. What I can a Win Win

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job June 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
I gave it a 4 and not a 5 because on my previous microwave I was able to just push one button and now I have to usually push 3 to get the thing to do what I want. Other than that it is fine. We vented it to the outside and it was easy to install, Did not take up much cabinet space and heats well. I like that it does not have the vent grids in the front.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would recommend with heads-up May 2, 2014
Verified Purchase
This microwave arrived on time and well-shipped (great condition) and works like a charm. It has everything we wanted - sufficient power, turntable, adjustable heat settings and more - so the only reason it got 4 stars is two-fold: yes, the mounting instructions were easy to follow and we had no trouble putting it up, however, since we were replacing an old one, we would have ended up with a better result just going with our gut. Following the instructions, we ended up with a larger gap between the top and the cabinetry than we would have liked. Secondly, as many people reported, the user instructions are bare bones, however, thanks to Amazon customers' reviews, we were able to know how to adjust the heat settings and find the food codes mentioned (inside door). So my only real complaint is that the food codes aren't sufficient - meaning, there are none with small enough portions to sufficiently use the reheat button and such, resulting in overcooking everything, so instead, we simply adjust heat settings and guesstimate the time ourselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy for $ June 6, 2013
By Jim S.

Excellent microwave. Could not find a better deal for an 1100 watt microwave. Our other one was dying and old, so compared to that one this one is quiet and has easy buttons. It does stick out an inch more than out old one, but its not a problem for us.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lack of operating instructions November 17, 2013
By sak57
We purchased this model in white last month and just installed it a week ago. Easy to install and looks very nice. The downside with this is there's no operating instructions except for a few basic ones printed on the face of the unit when you open the door, and they are not adequate. I still haven't figured out how to simply thaw a 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries for my cereal in the morning - very frustrating. It DID do a very even job of reheating a casserole, but the lack of a booklet to reference is very disappointing. Once I am able to figure out how it use it more efficiently, I'm sure I will be happier with it.
