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 and 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.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Great Microwave

Submitted by CindyNRV - 3/6/2018

I'm coming up on a year of using this appliance and my favorite feature is the nonstick interior. It's MUCH easier to keep clean compared to my older one. I recently discovered additional settings too for all kinds of alarms and features-nice extra!

Nice features and appearance

Submitted by Hausfrump - 1/23/2018

The microwave has sufficient power to heat at minimum recommended time and is much quieter than my older one. It is easy to use and has auto features for almost everything.

WMH53520CH - FAILURE/COMMON ISSUE

Submitted by RonS1 - 1/10/2018

Have all Whirlpool appliances with great success. Not so much with this microwave. Bought in 8/2015 for kitchen rehab. Installed 10/2015. A little over 2 years later it doesn't work. Recently it started saying "open & close door to start" even though the door was closed. This error started appearing more and more frequently until now the door doesn't close anymore. If you push on the door to close it the microwave starts running even though there's no time or function selected. Waited on hold for ~ 2hrs to speak to someone at Whirlpool and got "we're sorry for the issues that you're having". So many people having the same problem and they claim there is no recall and nothing that they can do. Wouldn't recommend this microwave and reconsidering my choice in manufacturer for any/all future appliance purchases.

Poor

Submitted by Barb14 - 1/9/2018

I bought WMH53520CS-0 on 06-2014. I am single and do not use this microwave as much as some users, but I now have the same problem as many of the other reviews with the open/close door problem. After 3 and a half years I am left with do I repair or just go out and purchase another microwave. Truly surprised that Whirlpool would have such a repeated problem.

Love the look of Ice White

Submitted by stezzer - 10/17/2017

Only had my microwave for a month, so it's hard to make a lot of comments on performance, but so far I am very pleased with the microwave's features and performance. As stated in the review title, love the look of it. My previous microwave was a Whirlpool and lasted 20 yrs. before it quit. I use my microwave daily.

Excellent Microwave

Submitted by peter628 - 3/24/2017

We bought this microwave shortly after buying a new stove. Our old one didn't match the new stove. The two white ice appliances make for a stunning look. It's just as impressive as stainless steel, but much easier to keep clean.The new microwave works great and we love how quiet it is.

Love the "ice" look!!

Submitted by Patticom - 3/20/2017

We were unable to see this in person before purchasing, but bought based on online photos. It looks even better in person, and we absolutely love it!! We find the "white ice" to be the perfect compromise between the popular look of stainless steel and the easier cleaning of glossy white (or black, but white works better for our kitchen, keeping it from being too dark). Directions for installation were very clear, and it works very well. Very happy with our purchase!

Full Function Microwave

3/9/2017

Nice full function microwave...it automatically turns on the exhaust when the stove below it gets too warm on the top and needs exhaust! Rack or rotation choice very nice, easy digital controls. Only issue is the lighting. There is only one light under the microwave to shine on your stove top, it needs two, one on each side for more light when you are cooking. Guess I'll have to look for some lights I can mount to get more light on the cooking surface.

This is probably my favorite appliance in my new kitchen so far. It is easy to operate and figure out and I like the add 30 second button that adds time easily if we need food a little hotter.

Love This Microwave

Submitted by Oklahoma Homemaker - 1/14/2017

This microwave is my first built in unit. It's quite a bit larger than the one it replaced. Easy to learn panel. The features signal tones are very pleasant. The sensor heat features are much better than my previous units.

Very quiet, very user friendly, sleek and modern look. Choices are easy to figure out. Only thing lacking is more choices in the beeping. It's on or it's off.

Large capacity, strong exhaust fan.

Submitted by bass-k - 11/21/2016

I bought this to replace a 18 year old similar model. Easy to install. Exhaust fan (vented through wall) is very strong and a little quieter than the old model. Inside is big and easy to clean. I'm not a big fan on the sensor settings, but they do seem to work. Only things I would do different is make the display change color and have the light LED. Otherwise a great unit.

Still learning

11/21/2016

A four because I have only had two weeks. On a learning curve for using sensor technology, especially with single baked potato. Read the instructions again and must try putting potato at edge of turn table rather than center. Appliance is beautiful and goes well with white appliances. However, I believe it will look great with stainless as well.

Attractive design. Quiet. I like the blue LED display, but the the actual display is set too far back - so it's barely visible from any angle.
