Summary: After looking at many different manufacturers disposal units, I decided to order a Whirlpool. It was as advertised quiet and easy to install even though I would consider myself a novice at these things at 80 years old. It performs flawlessly and is lots quieter than another unit we had before it. I would highly recommend this Whirlpool disposal unit to anyone who is even slightly handy. If I can install it, I'm sure you can too.
Summary: We bought our Whirlpool GC2000XE5 disposal about two months ago and are extremely pleased with it's quiet and efficient operation. The motor is so much easier on our ears than our previous in-sink-erator model and was easier on our pocket book. Having a more economical Whirlpool disposal turned our apparent crisis into a welcomed act of God. We strongly recommend this product and will purchase another if the need ever arises again.
Summary: This disposal did not work for us. Down the line away from the sink, we have old plumbing with a 90 degree angle. This disposal processed the food too quickly and did not grind it up enough. We had to uplug our plumbing twice after installing it. We switched to another brand and have had no problems at all.
Summary: Have a good experience with Whirlpool products with a washer and dryer over twenty years old and no problems with either. Easy disposer installation, quiet and very effective. Would buy another Whirlpool product in a heartbeat.
Summary: I bought this as a direct replacement after my old one started leaking. It lasted 15 years so I had no complaints with the old one. As I was replacing the exact same model, it only took about 30 minutes to complete. I left the original collar on the sink so it was just a matter removing the electrical, disconnecting the drain pipe and dishwasher hose and twisting off the old one and putting on the new one. So far, no complaints. Works well and the price is reasonable.
Summary: I've had this Whirlpool product for a few months now and I'm definitely impressed with this model. It is virtually soundless as it takes pieces of fresh garbage that is preferable to send though the sewage system for recycle than to create unsanitary conditions for family and pets. Although I added a 1/4 hp from my previous model, the sound is not indicative as this 1/2 hp garbage disposal purrs like a kitten.
