Excerpt: 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...
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: Great space saver. we only emply trash now about every 4 days. My husband,being a farmer, calls it our trash module builder. We only with it made more ice at one time. However, I've taken to collecting & storing extra in the freezer compartment.
Excerpt: I had my previous Whirlpool compactor since 1978 and still going strong but I wanted to update my appliances w stainless steel. I picked another Whirlpool compactor because I never had a problem or service call w my first Whirlpool compactor and because they were made in USA!!!
Excerpt: This compactor looks great in my new kitchen. Only drawback I found is the foot control to operate it is difficult to access. The last one I had used a control up top that you turned with your hand and it was much easier to access and operate.
