Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

After 24 years my Whirlpool Compactor still worked but was very noisy! This new one has a handle that looks good and will support a towel near the sink, perfect!! It's is quiet and does the job.

Poor quality

Cartoon 1961 11/13/2018

Increasingly harder to close. But worse than that, when closed, the upper portion of the compactor, including the door and interior, can be easily "moved" side-to-side four or five inches. We thought was defective but technician who looked at it said, "Yes, it needs a 'top' rail/support, but Whirlpool saved a little money by not including it." (Paraphrased) This cost us almost $1,000, including installation, and it is as close to "junk" as possible. The white GE that it replaced was FAR superior at 18-years-old! Greatly disappointed.

Cheaply Built With Less Features Than Advertised

mmon64 11/6/2018

I purchased this model after reviewing Whirlpool's website. My last compactor was 21 years old, still running without ever having any issues. It had a filter, filter switch, filter fan, and a filter cover. It also had the solid pack feature, which doubles the capacity of the trash by locking the ram in the down position. This feature keeps the trash compressed so when the ram does comes back up, the trash doesn't spring back up, giving you less room to add trash. As you can see, the website says it comes with the solid pack. The compactor is WORTHLESS without this feature. They removed this "top of the line" compactor feature and the filter. They were also too cheap to retool the panel, so now it shows where the filter switch and solid pack switch should be, along with a gaping hole that should have a filter fan, charcoal filter, and filter cover. As far as value, my old Whirlpool with all of the features, was $425 brand new in 1997, which is $660 based on inflation. The Whirlpool rep said this feature never existed, even though the cardboard cutout that came with the compactor shows it; go figure!

Shipped with a faulty switch

Colin86586 5/10/2018

Ordered in Mid April and delivered early May. The compactor didn't work correctly the day it was installed. The compacting ram would run down and back up but a switch was broken so it didn't know to stop running. The result was a jackhammer sound. I was able to diagnose the problem in approximately 10 minutes. It took whirlpool 4 days to get someone out to look at it. It took the actual repair person 30 minutes and video conference call to figure out what was going on. That was 4 days ago. Supposed to be fixed today...

Martha Stewert 7/18/2017

Love our trash compactor. Makes taking the trash easy and less frequent than without a compactor. It would be helpful to have a larger foot pedal to open it and perhaps locating the compacting button so that it doesn't get bumped easily.

The new compactor is quieter but that is the only plus. It is cheaply made , it does not crush and hold it down, It is not going to last 30 plus years like my last one for sure. Made cheaply, cost much more!!!.

kitchen learner 9/6/2016

As trash compactors go, it's probably better than average these days, but the housing seems insubstantial (i.e., cheaply made), and the foot pedal for compaction is easy to trigger by mistake. For the price we had expected better quality.

Solidly built, easy to use compactor

7/16/2016

We purchased the Whirlpool 15" Undercounter Trash Compactor to replace one that had been in service for many years. This new model looks sharp with our other stainless finished appliances. It functions well, saving us many trips to take out the trash by crushing waste into one bag that can be easily removed and disposed of. I only wish that we had made this purchase months earlier when the old compactor started going rogue on us!

I bought this direct not realizing it didn't have the lock down feature to compact overnight which was on my last compactor. I wish I would have noticed that, other than that it does a good job of cutting down on trips to the dumpster.

Replacement for problem prone GE compactor

3/6/2016

Replaced the GE compactor a couple of weeks ago after fighting it for about four years. The new Whirlpool was easy to install and level and works fine. The only problem is the placement of the foot switch to operate the compactor. It is to low and I am constantly hitting it with my toe when working at the counter.

Nice Looking on the Outside!

7/9/2015

I bought two of these units in May 2015 and waited several weeks for them to arrive. Now I have them and they both operate in a very strange way. When you press the floor pedal, the trash drawers kick hard to right banging the adjacent cabinet and then they rattle and vibrate as the drawer opens out towards you. The root cause is that the drawers are out of sqaure. I know this because I compared the drawers to my old Whirlpool units from 15 years ago. Those drawers are square and they open sttraight out, nice and smooth. Whirlpool clearly has a factory assembly quality issue with these units! So, if you want trash compactors that bang your cabinets when they open and rattle, these would be good units to own.

Finishes match other brands

Hooked on compactors 5/4/2015

When updating my kitchen I purchased another brand for dishwasher, ovens, fridge. I have had a compactor for 15 years (an old kenmore) and I needed a compactor with a stainless finish and handle to match the other brand I purchased because they did not make a compactor. Very few brands do make compactors so it is important that this Whirlpool can coordinate with other stainless appliances. This Whirlpool compactor had the stainless finish and handle that just fit the bill. It looks great close to the dishwasher and you could not even tell they were made by someone else. I like the feature of the controls inside the compactor which gives it a sleek and uncluttered look. Fit right into my space with ease.

Good replacement for an antique

Ddietsch 3/20/2015

We bought this to replace a 30 year old workhorse, also by Whirlpool. While the old one still functioned, it had become a little "long in the tooth" and we wanted to update the style to match our other newer appliances. So far it works superbly. The door seems a bit more "flimsy" than the old one, but that seems to be pretty common for all brands of the newer models. It hasn't really made any difference in how the unit performs. Probably just an attempt by the manufacturer to save a little weight in the unit. So far, very pleased.

Clean lines and soft sounding mechanics

Carr2000 1/23/2015

I actually purchased all the appliances that match this compactor. I love the clean lines and have had great durability from all the other appliances EXCEPT the refrigerator! I've noticed scratches and a small dent on the door of my fridge and I've only had it since December! Very disappointing considering the amount of money we've invested!
