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...

Great replacement unit
from Meridian, ID
This unit replaced a different brand. What a difference! The drawer glides smoothly and the step pedal is easy to use. Still quite noisy, though

Simple operation - just push one button and walk away.

We have never owned a trash compactor prior to purchasing this unit about a month ago. Thus far, it has worked very well. Trash is compacted to a point where we are only throwing away one bag of trash every week or two. There appears to be a good deal of power to handle the compacting. There is a toe kick that you push down with your foot to open the drawer. I tend to leave the unit open about an inch so I'm not putting extra wear-and-tear on the pedal due to constantly opening the drawer. Something sharp caused a tear in the plastic bag which then leaked. The unit was easy to take apart to adequately clean the mess. The drawer front is easy to clean with stainless steel cleaner. The controls are at the top against a black backdrop, avoiding finger prints on the stainless steel. We researched trash compactors and read reviews by other owners and felt this was a good unit for the price. We can't really compare it to another trash compactor since this is our first time owning a unit.

Excellent!!!! A compactor is very basic,matches our other new applianced
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!

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.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
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.
