Plugs for Ugly Screw Holes on Top of Cabinet

There are two holes on the top cover that look like something should be screwed into. I assume that these are there for the under counter conversion kit parts.I am using this GC900QPPQ compactor as a freestanding appliance. Unfortunately, these screw holes are ugly at best. Shouldn??t a white plug have been in these holes?

A Little Dissapointed
By M. Gambrell

Comments about Whirlpool 15" Black Trash Compactor:
I had to replace a 25 year old Whirlpool Trash compactor recently with this model. Although this machine is lighter in weight, it also moves inside of the intended space too much, causing the door not to close easily. The older model had a "dial" to turn the unit on for compacting. This newer model has a button that you push, which is actually somewhat hard to push (again, causing the machine to move backward into the space. Overall, the machine does the job and I am glad to have it; however, the older model seemed to work better. Of course, it did last for 25 years!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Just recently purchased a trash compactor. Like it so far. Have no issues with it.
from Fairmont, WV
This has been in use for about 1 month and so far no problems. Our last Whirlpool compactor lasted 35 years. Hopefully this one will give us the same service. The bags recommended by Whirlpool are hard to find but the bags used by our old one fit.

The compactor works great! It holds a whole week of trash for 2 people.
from Bullard, TX
It came with a broken foot pedal. The delivery man took from the old and replaced the broken pedal. After some trying times with poor operation, we found that one of the wheels had come off the track in the back. There was also a dent in the frame. Our engineer grandson was able to put the wheel back on and straighten the dent somewhat. Still feels weak and wobbly when you pull out the door. The latch near the front of the unit does not work properly. Sadly, we don't like it. We've had compactors before and they were better.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We're Very Disappointed
We've had our compactor a couple of weeks and we're disappointed. When delivered, the foot pedal was broken. The delivery man removed the pedal from the old one and installed on the new. Later we discovered that one of the rollers had come off the back of the drawer during installation. Also found a dent in the housing. Our engineer grandson was able to put the wheel back on and straighten the dent to some extent. The latch doesn't seem to work properly. Overall it just seems like a cheaply made, but expensive, item. Sorry we bought it.

This appliance makes life alot easier. Instead of taking trash out twice a day, you take it out once a week. It matches our other stainless steel appliances perfectly, and you don't have to have a waste basket in your kitchen.

I am very happy with my Whirlpool Compactor. It reduces 3-4 bags down to one. Runs very well and is a great addition to my kitchen.Would recommend to all my friends.
Trash compactor is great!

I bought this for my Mom and she loves it! It replaced a 30-year-old compactor of the same brand. She likes that it has a turn-off switch inside for when the grandkids visit (some are little and love to push buttons!).
Grandma simplifies taking out the trash!
from Fresno, CA, United States
My grandson carried out at least one full bag of trash everyday to the bin. Felt so sorry for him and sorry for the messy plastic trash can that I bought a new 15inch Whirlpool trash compactor. What a difference the trash bin outside only two or three compactor bags a week.(we are a family of 6) Had to buy a Whirlpool we have always had Whirlpool appliances since 1975 including a compactor so we are a happy family with a happy grandson!
