Can this model be used as recirculation with no outside venting?

Asked by: Bay7
I did not think so. Per installation manual it required 6" vent go outside.

how do you install the microwave on top of the stove

Asked by: heena
first secure and level bottom mounting bracket to wall (studs).Then drill holes for plug-in and screws to secure top of microwave through top cupboard.Then you'll need two people to first put microwave on bottom bracket and then someone to fish plug-in as you bring up microwave to top cupboard and screw in screws through cupboard in top of microwave.

What is the meaning of HS or HZ at the end of the product code? YWMH31017HZ

Asked by: Totter218
Hi Totter218, "HS" or "HZ"; last two letters represent our generation code (year of release) and colour/finish of the appliance. For example "S" represents Stainless Steel and "Z" represents Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel. Hope this helps, thank you for your question!

Can the filter be easily removed and washed, or do you have to buy filters?

Asked by: lori2018
Hello lori2018, Grease filters are on the underside of microwave oven. Clean monthly with mild soap and water or dishwasher The charcoal filter is behind the vent grille at the top front of the microwave oven. The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned and should be replaced about every 6 months. Thank you, for contacting us and we look forward serving you.

Over-the-Range Microwave Oven - 30" - 1.7 cu. ft. - 900 W - SS is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 6101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microwave - (we own 2) We just remodeled our entire kitchen less than a year ago and decided to go with Kenmore Elite for all appliances. I can honestly say that the Kenmore Elite microwave is the worst microwave we've ever owned. Noisy, uneven cooking, annoying end of heating beeper, just among a few. Our vacation home has this Whirlpool microwave oven and we love it so much we ditched our Kenmore Elite and replaced it with another Whirlpool. This is a great oven. Simple, even cooking and simple to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cosmetic Issues Present I have a very similar issue as Mike5545 posted several months ago. I also have a black microwave WMH31017HB which only has been wiped down gently with a microfiber towel and the lower part of door on right side by window is beginning to crack. I've had this unit just a few months when the issue arose. I was in the automotive industry for over 20 years. I have seen many things over the years to be able to say with confidence that this is a manufacturing issue. The microwave itself works great but there are certainly cosmetic issues which need to be addressed in order for me to recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Model #: WMH31017HB [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Basic over the range micro. Installation was easy, somewhat noisy using top/front exhaust. only been using for a month and already had a couple door not closed errors, when door was closed(first couple of times used, then seemed to go away. Time will tell.). Multiple steps to activate control panel, i.e. Soften/melt has 8 different categories with multiple quantities, took time to figure out sequence. Will have to do more testing to see what settings work best for different food types (kind of complicated for a basic micro). Overall OK for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product At A Great Price!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this a few weeks ago as a replacement for our previous Whirlpool microwave - which worked flawlessly for more than 10 years! We wanted to stay with the Whirlpool brand because of the positive experience we had with our previous microwave oven. The instructions and materials provided made installation a snap, and it took less than 30 minutes to remove our old model and install the new one. The black finish is great. It doesn't show fingerprints, and both the inside and outside wipe clean easily with a damp cloth. The buttons and digital readout are large and easy to read, and the controls are extremely intuitive and easy to operate. Last but not least, the price was great compared to several other models of similar size and power. We would recommend this product to anyone in the market for an over-the-range microwave oven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Basic no bells or whistles [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Basic features of a microwave, this microwave does not have all the convenient fast set buttons as did my old one. I enjoyed the convenient push of each button giving me instant time and instant on,(1=one minute, 2= two minutes etc.) This has a 30 second button, which goes on when you touch it, but not always, it will display "door" so you have to open and close door several times before it works. The work light is okay, but not great, 2 lights or a central position would have been better. This does not have an option to stop the turntable, so heating some items can be a bit annoying. To do the basic heating or reheating, it does as needed

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I guess it is ok but no documentation I bought this yesterday. Installation was easy but there didn't seem to be any documentation on how to use it. The owners manual talks about safety, wiring, warranty, some things not to do but nothing on how to use it. No instructions on how to set the clock (even though it wasn't difficult). If I wanted to know how to set a defrost cycle, no clue but I can pop popcorn with the touch of a button.. Seems maybe I bought a microwave that may or may not do the things I want. I guess I find out. I can't properly rate features or ease of use because I haven't been able to figure them out yet. It will be a guessing game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has the features I wanted [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this about a month ago and it works well. I had a different brand for 20+ years so the settings I'm still getting used to. One feature really different or I need to figure out is the defrost since it seems if I want to defrost something and its not a preset feature, how to defrost without heating time cook, adjusting the power to 30% and start. Previous microwave I pressed defrost and entered amount of time, it automatically went to 30% power. Didn't need microwave with a lot of extras since I use one for defrosting and heating, not actually cooking meals in it. It's quieter than my old one, a little larger and meets my needs.
Date published: 2019-05-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Microwave Easy do it yourself install if its a replacement. May be a little complicated if it's a new install and you have never installed one before. I was replacing a microwave of a different brand just replaced the old bracket using the provided template and drilled two new holes hung it and plugged it in. Simple straight forward controls and looks great. No bells and whistles' just good functionality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Exhaust fan issues We just bought this microwave today so have only used it a few times. It seems to work OK as far as heating but we noticed a major problem right away with the exhaust fan. It does not work well and allows the entire front of the unit to fog up when boiling water on stove. We boiled spaghetti on front burner and even with fan on high, the front of microwave was totally covered with steam. The exhaust fan works better when using rear burners but unfortunately, both our large burners are on the front. I've never had this problem before, in fact rarely needed to use the exhaust fan in the past. The fan is loud but not functional. Also could not get the melt/soften function to work and no directions included. That issue might be resolved with more use so I will update my review in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So quiet I thought it was broken! This microwave is awesome! I had put a cup of water in to give it a try and the lack of noise (who’d have thought it could lack) made me think it wasn’t working. This microwave heated a large glass of water in one minute to a point of steam rising off the water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Irritating issues mar an ok microwave. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this microwave to match our black whirlpool gas range. about a year ago, installation is straightforward. The unit is user friendly and heats and oes the job as expected. BUT, two issues have me frustrated. First the filter screen is a very poor fit in the slots and never would stay put. And second and more frustrating is the over the range light went bad and so I replaced the bulb and expected that to work but no. Something else has went bad inside, so that a new bulb will not light up. I tried calling whirlpool but it has a ridiculous call wait time 3 hrs or so. and anyway i cannot find my receipt. So i am dissatisfied with this unit. (I like light over my range top.) Also too the light when it did work was not very bright.
Date published: 2019-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very simple install, everything needed was explained and since it’s a standard size - easy to swap with your old unit. Very satisfied with the product. Runs better than expected and lights under are brighter than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge improvement [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have had it for a few weeks and it works great. The deck is lower than the previous microwave so it is easier to see the food. The light inside works well. Despite other reviews complaining about the beeping when it shuts off, it seems to be inline with what I expected. The keypad is simple and works well. Also saw complaints about how hard it was to push the buttons. Have not experienced this issue at all. The clock is a pleasant blue color that is easy to read. The black color is nice because it matches our other appliances, and cleans easily. This was a replacement microwave, and installation was easy. The old one had a more substantial mounting plate, but the one provided by Whirlpool worked fine. I would buy this microwave again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good choice [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this microwave about a month ago and had it installed. It is hooked up to vent outside when we run the fans which is an awesome feature. There are only two fan speeds on this model, but it seems adequate for our needs. The microwave is roomy, lights up well, and gives reminder beeps periodically after food is done until I attend to it. Unfortunately the timer doesn’t have this feature. The only other thing I wish it had is the express buttons to cook (i.e. hit 5 for five minutes). Overall I’m very pleased with this purchase and it’s a great value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this in hopes of it matching our black appliances. The handle is a black stainless steel and the rest of the facing matches out black appliances. It has a quiet beep reminder if you forget to take what you warmed up out. The blue display is not too vivid, and the functions are very simple.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horribe Microwave This microwave failed before it hit the year mark; i had multiple service calls on it during my first year of owning it; the light over the stove just will not turn off; called my home warranty company and they just want to replace the entire unit!
Date published: 2018-07-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money 6 months after purchasing this microwave I was cooking popcorn and it sounded like electricity shooting through the microwave. Whirlpool sent a repair man within a week. Repair man said the microwave is shot and needs to be replaced and he would call Whirlpool and let them know. A day or 2 later we called to find out what was happening and the repairman said Whirlpool refuses to replace it and they wanted him to try to fix it, but he does not feel comfortable fixing it When we called Whirlpool they said the repairman told them it could be fixed. We insisted that we do not feel safe having this microwave left in our home and want it replaced. They told us they would send out another microwave and the company would install the new one and take the old one with them. After several weeks of waiting we still have not heard anything as to when our replacement will be in, but the company they are sending to replace it called to make an appointment to pick up the old one. When asked they said they had no knowledge of a replacement coming to us. We are now without a microwave for almost 2 months and honestly will never buy another Whirlpool again. If they want to make it right they should refund my money so I can buy a different brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic microwave [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this at a good price as an open box at Best Buy to replace another Whirlpool microwave that died. One good thing was that all the supports lined up so I didn't have to drill any new holes or replace any brackets. It has the basic features I need including the soften/melt and the 30 second timer add button. It does not have the sensor feature but I don't use that much anyway. Be careful when handling though because the stainless steel must be pretty thin. When picking it up by myself, I had something hard in my pocket and it put a small crease in the surface. My fault,just be aware. It serves my purposes though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great microwave, but missing one feature [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had a Whirlpool microwave for at least the last 15 years, so when that old microwave died I purposed to get another Whirlpool. I bought one that looked just like the old one, but I found out later it was missing one coveted feature the old microwave had. That being a light timer that turned the unit over the counter light automatically at the same time every day. It was great for walking out into a dark kitchen early in the morning and having the gentle under microwave light on. I really miss that feature so I'm not so fond of this microwave now because of that. Otherwise it works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great deal [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Well I told the pesky sales person that I needed a microwave and she said white was unavailable . My other appliances are 13-year-old white appliances so I told her give me the gun metal ! She found one that was on sale and that’s all I needed to know and she said nothing is wrong with it . So far the only thing that’s slightly annoying is because the buttons are hard to see because I’m older person sometimes I have to get out a magnifying glass. I’m glad the pesky person suggested I get a new refrigerator in another brand but same color; also, The oven’s performance is perfect so far .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product was very affordable! It looks great, it works great and is very spacious! The only minor thing I would change is how it mounts. Or maybe where? One side mounts super solid where the other side seems as if it only goes into the sheet metal housing. Surprisingly it still seems super solid. We shook it and tested the durability and it didn’t budge. We are happy with the product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent microwave! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our previous microwave (a GE product) went out just two weeks prior to Thanksgiving. We purchased the Whirlpool 1.7 cu ft hood microwave as the replacement and we could not be happier! Little did we know that our previous microwave lacked power as well as space, even though these two share close to the same external measurements. What used to take five minutes to heat up takes half if not less than half the time to heat in the Whirlpool microwave. The appearance is also so much better than our previous microwave. Plus, this has the fingerprint protection feature so it isn’t left printed up. We truly could not be happier. This was a winner purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed with the fan/filter [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This microwave is quite nice. I don't use the preset features (I never had on any microwave that I've owned) so I have no comments about that. The size is perfect, it's easy to clean, and stylish in design. What impresses me the most, though, is how well the fan and filter work. Previously I've had other microwaves that don't seem to suck up any vapor or smells and this one does a good job. Also, since I got it two months ago, I have no grease on the cabinets above it (where the filter is blowing air out and where grime can usually accumulate. I have not changed the filter yet, but compared to other microwaves, it looks easy to replace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Microwave (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Purchased as a package with a new fridge and stove. Installation was easy but a receptacle will have to be installed in the cupboard above, there is no option for hard-wiring it using your old range hood wiring. The inside of the microwave is very large and there are lots of built-in presets for defrosting, reheating etc. The only downside is that the light on the bottom of microwave that shines down on the stove is at the rear of the microwave, instead of the front, and it is not very bright (small 40W incandescent appliance bulb) and replacing it with an LED bulb is not recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inadequate Use/Operation manual [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] You installation manual is spot on in terms of its straight forward, step by step instructions. Your use/operation manual, however, contains, or better yet, lacks BLATANTLY obvious features. A simple diagram of the operations panel would be beneficial. Additionally, the ops manual speaks of a "start control" but no such button has that label. I have owned microwave ovens for well over 40 years and suddenly I'm left wondering how to start this thing! After completely remodeling my kitchen, I finally took this item out of its box. HATE I purchased this model.
Date published: 2020-04-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was purchased as a replacement for a 15 year old model that stopped working. While the outside dimensions are practically the same, there’s 22% more oven space. It’s also much quieter, which is great! Fingerprint resistance seems to be very good. The only downside I can think of is that you have to actually hit the Start button whenever you use the +30 Seconds button. With my old Whirlpool microwave (and all others I’ve used), this is a one-button process.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good micro tough a few minor improvements needed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Good working, solid microwave though a few minor improvements would make it amazing: - Switch the location of the start and stop buttons (why have start button on left? Traditionally, I've always seen it on right) - Change color of numbers on panel from blue to green (the blue is so bright and not matching with most other appliances) - Door handle needs to be made on a panel separate from the microwave clear glass as it's difficult to clean under the handle and where most fingerprints are found! Otherwise, works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from problems with the timer light! I have had this microwave for almost 1 year and the light underneath has gone out on me 2 times, this last time i havent had anyone to replace it for me, the lights on the display where you can see the amout of time that you need to use to cook something, or even to see the time itself has gone totally blank/ as in no light at all! But you can still put the food or what ever you need to heat, cook, defrost, or melt in and if you remember the settings it works ok, but it dosen’t always heat everything up and get it hot! Sometimes the food is still cold or its so hot it burns my husbands mouth! He has had blisters on his lips and cheeks he has Parkingsons and its not very healthy for him to be scared to eat his food! So I cannot remend this Whirpool Over-The Range Microwave With a clear conscious!
