Whirlpool are known for making a range of high end appliances. With the WHES30, they take their expertise to the world of water softeners. The result is one of the best small sized water compressors out there.

The system is able to produce enough water for a household of 1-4 people. The water comes out soft, and it noticeably reduces mineral buildup on skin, hair, and dishes. It also has an easy to use interface that allows you to control just about every function off the system. With an efficient meter that only regenerates water when you need it, the Whirlpool also saves you money on salt.

Whirlpool WHES30E 30,000 Grain Softener

Whirlpool WHES30

  • 30,000 Grain
  • NSF Certified
  • 120 grains per gallon removal level
  • Ideal for families of 1-4+
  • Requirements: 110/120 Volts.

This system will cost a bit more than comparably sized units. But you have to consider the added features you get, as well as the durable build. The Whirlpool is an excellent choice for those who want to spend a bit more on a quality unit that will last them years.

Key Features

When you take the Whirlpool out of the packaging, you’ll definitely notice the style of the system. This is about as stylish as water softeners come. Although that’s probably not the main feature you need in a water softener, it’s nice to have a system that’s easy on the eyes.

The 30,000 grain capacity tank gives you plenty of water for a small sized household. The water quality is excellent, giving you soft water that will make your showers better and extend the life of your appliances. It doesn’t remove as many mineral deposits as some larger softeners. But given the price, it’s hard to find a system that does more.

The interface on the Whirlpool is simple and intuitive, allowing you to easily control the regeneration cycle. The buttons are sensitive, so you won’t have to jam your finger to get a response.

The system uses demand generated regeneration. This means that it only refills the tanks when they are low, saving resin and salt. This feature isn’t found on many cheaper units, and it can save you quite a bit of money on salt over the years.

Whirlpool make durable appliances that hold up to years of routine use without any drop in perfomance. This system is no different. All of the parts are durable, so you should get years of soft water. If anything does break, Whirlpool covers the whole system with a full 1 year warranty. There is also a 3 year limited warranty on the electronics and a 10 year warranty on the tanks.

Whirlpool provide full tech support for the system. Although the tech support can be helpful, it can take a while to reach customer service.

Pros and Cons


  • Great style and compact build
  • Efficient design that saves money on salt
  • Easy to use touch interface
  • Comes with a good warranty policy


  • Limited capacity tank
  • Customer service unresponsive at times
