Martha Stewert 7/18/2017

Love our trash compactor. Makes taking the trash easy and less frequent than without a compactor. It would be helpful to have a larger foot pedal to open it and perhaps locating the compacting button so that it doesn't get bumped easily.

Kitchen Queen 5/24/2017

The new compactor is quieter but that is the only plus. It is cheaply made , it does not crush and hold it down, It is not going to last 30 plus years like my last one for sure. Made cheaply, cost much more!!!.

kitchen learner 9/6/2016

As trash compactors go, it's probably better than average these days, but the housing seems insubstantial (i.e., cheaply made), and the foot pedal for compaction is easy to trigger by mistake. For the price we had expected better quality.

Solidly built, easy to use compactor

Phil 7/16/2016

We purchased the Whirlpool 15" Undercounter Trash Compactor to replace one that had been in service for many years. This new model looks sharp with our other stainless finished appliances. It functions well, saving us many trips to take out the trash by crushing waste into one bag that can be easily removed and disposed of. I only wish that we had made this purchase months earlier when the old compactor started going rogue on us!

Pj 5/6/2016

Replacement for problem prone GE compactor

DB 3/6/2016

Replaced the GE compactor a couple of weeks ago after fighting it for about four years. The new Whirlpool was easy to install and level and works fine. The only problem is the placement of the foot switch to operate the compactor. It is to low and I am constantly hitting it with my toe when working at the counter.

Nice Looking on the Outside!

Chris 7/9/2015

I bought two of these units in May 2015 and waited several weeks for them to arrive. Now I have them and they both operate in a very strange way. When you press the floor pedal, the trash drawers kick hard to right banging the adjacent cabinet and then they rattle and vibrate as the drawer opens out towards you. The root cause is that the drawers are out of sqaure. I know this because I compared the drawers to my old Whirlpool units from 15 years ago. Those drawers are square and they open sttraight out, nice and smooth. Whirlpool clearly has a factory assembly quality issue with these units! So, if you want trash compactors that bang your cabinets when they open and rattle, these would be good units to own.

Finishes match other brands

Hooked on compactors 5/4/2015

When updating my kitchen I purchased another brand for dishwasher, ovens, fridge. I have had a compactor for 15 years (an old kenmore) and I needed a compactor with a stainless finish and handle to match the other brand I purchased because they did not make a compactor. Very few brands do make compactors so it is important that this Whirlpool can coordinate with other stainless appliances. This Whirlpool compactor had the stainless finish and handle that just fit the bill. It looks great close to the dishwasher and you could not even tell they were made by someone else. I like the feature of the controls inside the compactor which gives it a sleek and uncluttered look. Fit right into my space with ease.

Good replacement for an antique

Ddietsch 3/20/2015

We bought this to replace a 30 year old workhorse, also by Whirlpool. While the old one still functioned, it had become a little "long in the tooth" and we wanted to update the style to match our other newer appliances. So far it works superbly. The door seems a bit more "flimsy" than the old one, but that seems to be pretty common for all brands of the newer models. It hasn't really made any difference in how the unit performs. Probably just an attempt by the manufacturer to save a little weight in the unit. So far, very pleased.

Clean lines and soft sounding mechanics

Carr2000 1/23/2015

I actually purchased all the appliances that match this compactor. I love the clean lines and have had great durability from all the other appliances EXCEPT the refrigerator! I've noticed scratches and a small dent on the door of my fridge and I've only had it since December! Very disappointing considering the amount of money we've invested!

grannyzee 9/28/2014

We have one bag of trash a week with the use of the compactor. Our area is mandatory recycle so only trash goes in there. It does a great job of keeping it compact and tight. I've had a Whirlpool compactor for 19 years. I only replaced with new to go from a black kitchen to stainless steel. I never needed any repairs on the old one at all.

Great Compactor

Pm25801 10/28/2013

If you have shopped for trash compactors, you know that they are not cheap. This one was at the lower end of the cost curve. But I was buying it to replace one that was in the house when I bought the house. The house was built in '84 and I'm sure the compactor was in the house at that time. It was a similar Whirlpool. If that one lasted 29 years before it stopped working, I was comfortable replacing it with the same though updated model. The compactor is sleek and beautiful. It was easy to install and can be disabled to prevent children from playing with it. I am also pleased with the sound levels. I can't say that it is exactly quiet but I don't think any compactor is. What I can say is that it is a vast improvement over the one I replaced. And, after purchasing several Whirlpool products, I have found their quality and reliability to be very high.

can't recommend

darmar 4/4/2013

This is our 4th trash compactor we have lived in a home with a Kenmore, Kitchen Aid, Jenn Aire and this Whirlpool. This is undoubtedly our worst one ever! We didn't realize it didn't have the extra-compact feature or the option to turn off the machine at the precise moment to keep the ram rod engaged. We have to empty it twice as often as the others which had either the feature or allowed you to turn off and keep it engaged. Often when we believe the door is closed it will open and make a horrific noise until we run to it and shut the door again so as to stop it from compacting! If the door isn't shut, even when it appears to be, it will make the same awful noise as it tries to begin compacting??? The door is quite flimsy and feels cheaply built and not very durable.

One major shortcoming

fineganj 10/20/2011

With the lower front foot switch, the front cabinet is not adequately strengthened. It is tinney and very flexible. For a product of this cost a little added structure would give it a much better feel. If you are considering purchaseing this item be sure and see it in person prior to buying. Other than this it works great and has great compacting power.
