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.

Happy so far

OCD Girl 10/4/2017

I'm pretty happy with this trash compactor so far. It holds far more than I expected. Fairly quiet operation. My only criticism is that I ordered a free-standing appliance, which fits perfectly and conveniently next to the kitchen island; however, the back is unfinished and clearly intended to be installed against a wall. I'm trying to figure out a way to camouflage it for a more aesthetic appearance. Otherwise, I think I made a good decision.

Gramma 3/27/2017

Seems that another review of the trash compactor I did must not have made it to qualify? It replaces a 30 year old Whirlpool trash compactor that had the deodorizer feature, dense pack feature and several color panels from which to choose, and was not "tinny" sounding like this one--plus, it was a third of the price of this model.

I bought this to replace my old Whirlpool compactor that I have had since 1988. It still works good but I thought after all this time I would get a new one. So I replaced it with one just like it, and I love it. With my 2 year old grandson in the house I really like the safety items on it.

Meme G 11/11/2016

It is wonderful to have a trash compactor again. I bought this one to replace a 20 plus year old Whirlpool compactor that finally bit the dust. I thought I might could go without a compactor, but after a month or so, no I couldn't. This one is just great and I hope it lasts as long as the previous one.

Poor Design

Russ 10/31/2016

I had an older Whirlpool Compactor that was great. This one does not have a ram the compacts as well. The instructions say it take being half full to compact but this must be 3/4 full for it to do any compacting. Also it has no spot for a deodorizer like my old one had. Bottom line this in not have the Compactor that the older models were.

Mitch 9/11/2016

We bought this in August. It worked great, and saved a lot of space in our trash can we take to curb. Exactly what we were looking for. Basic, no bells and whistles. However, several days ago it just quit. We have a service appointment on the 19th. About a 2 week wait for repair. Thing break, we understand, but put more quality in these products. I want to be able to use this trouble free for a long time at these prices.

Trash compactors haven't changed much.......

JJ, private nurse extraordinaire. 3/6/2016

The last compactor we bought was 30 years ago. A plastic piece of the door control had finally broke and the appliance + parts were discontinued long ago. Bought this WP convertible for price point. We didn't need anything very fancy, just a functional and affordable appliance. Never knew there was now a quiet mode, (we like this feature), it is dead easy to operate/clean, and safety features to protect any small children in the house. Love it!

Nesor 2/5/2016

I replaced the exact same trash compactor that failed after about 25 years of service, so I can't complain. It works quietly and efficiently, and really reduces our household trash by a large percentage. My only concern is that the price of these appliances has skyrocketed, which seems odd for something that hasn't changed in so long.

A Little Dissapointed

M. Gambrell 7/27/2015

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!

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!

Plugs for Ugly Screw Holes on Top of Cabinet

James 23333 12/17/2014

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?
