When we bought our used home 10 years ago this same Whirlpool Trash Compactor was in the kitchen, and it certainly wasn't new; so I estimate it's age when it died a couple of months ago as 15+ years. It served us well, never jamming or breaking down. Our only complaint was it's somewhat noisy operation (but so what - the cycle is less than a minute), and the drawer didn't roll smoothly. But it's durability was enough of a positive for us to buy another. The new one is a little quieter, and the drawer rolls fine. Except for the cosmetics it's the identical machine - which is a good thing!

The unit we purchased this year repaced a Whirlpool Compacter we purchased in 1987, yes, it was 26 years old. That unit was great and we probably should have had it repaired rather than replaced. The 1987 was far superior to the 2013 model. The 1987 unit had a phase that would keep the compacter down at night, this would insure a tight compact each morning. It was also a safety and sanitary factor. The 2013 model does NOT COMPACT as well as the 1987 model did. I had thought about contacting Whirlpool to see if I might have purchased a defective unit but since you are now contacting me for my input YOU might consider contacting me....I prefer e-mail contact. Hope to hear from you...

Not as good as the 22 yr old Frigidaire it replaced
This compactor has a plunger that only travels half way down, unlike my Frigidaire that would go 3/4 of the way. The instruction said don't compact until it's half full but by then there is too much trash to compact tight. The difference is taking the trash out every week instead of every other week.
This is a fabuous trashh compactor!

About Me Casual Cook
This is a deep, efficient, quiet compactor. Couldn't ask for more.
This trash compactor provides all the best features.
from Tacoma, WA
We are very pleased with our new Whirlpool trash compactor. It is a replacement for a 1970's Whirlpool model and the improvements are very nice. I especially like the foot pedal opening since your hands are usually full when you want to put something in the trash. It is quiet; easy to clean; stylish; compacts well and has bag fasteners to keep the bag in place.

The unit is acceptable for the price.
from Los Angeles
The unit does the job but is noisy and does not close easily and quietly. The compact drawer is loose when opening and closing. Overall not bad for the price.
I definitely would not recommend trash compactor
from walland Tn
This unit does not have a switch which that can automatically hold the compression unit at its low point to compact the trash more tightly before returning to the top. It does not have the compacting pressure as My old unit had. The unit is very difficult to open and close to remove the trash bags. For the amount money I paid for the unit I am extremely disappointed. My older unit held more trash than this unit.
Great Product with unbelievable features
from Cleveland, AL
My wife and I just remodeled our house including the kitchen. We have never had a compactor, so, this was a first for us. After reviewing compactors online, the Whirlpool was our choice. We are so pleased and proud of this purchase. It has made quite a difference in our trash handling. It is unbelievable how much this compactor will hold. One bag will last us several weeks. We would highly recommend this product .
Clean and efficient
from West Virginia
No cans of trash cluttering up my kitchen- my Whirlpool compacter handles all kinds of throwaways quickly and quietly.
Great Dish Washer
from Beckley WV
I purchased this unit to replace an old loud outdated machine. I love the sleek look (mine is white). I also love that the controls are on the top of the door rather than the front door panel. It keeps little hands away. In addition, it gets dishes amazingly clean while being extremely quiet. One tip . . . be sure to use a rinse aid. It really makes a big difference. I really can't imagine a better dishwasher at this price point.
