Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CCStanton Can be used anywhere!
I have an older home but am not ready to put in a whole new kitchen, so this Trash Compactor works beautifully in my utility room! I didn't bother to put the wheels on it so it looks like a permanent fixture between the washer and the cupboard.
This unit looks so much better than an open trash can and it dose a great job of compacting almost any trash!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by terrygow822 Had to call for repair
After a couple days use it started making a banging noise then would screech at the bottom of compacting cycle. Called customer service and had to get a whirlpool service technician to come to home and repair compactor. He said (I think) that a motor mount had broken and he ordered the part and installed it a few days later since the repair there has been no more problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mlb6d9 Superior Trash Management Indeed!
I had a Kenmore compactor at my old place, but it had to stay when I sold the house. My new place didn't have one, and I deliberately went a year to see if I could do without one - Nope! So I found this model at a garage sale, and had a carpenter modify my base cabinet to make space for it. Got it installed and it works beautifully! I dampened the noise a bit by taking the back cover off and packing the cavity with un faced fiberglass insulation (be sure to leave 3 inches or so of clearance around the motor and tracks). I took the front deckplate cover off and put fiberglass in the cavity there as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sally4157 Powerful and efficient!
Big, Wow! This compactor is terrific. I live on an island where trash removal is very expensive. The more I can get into a bag, the cheaper it is for me. Now I compact my trash quickly, allowing me to get 4 times ash much a bag. When paying by the bag, compacting becomes a must. Love this machine.

Easy to use, and I can compact a weeks worth of garbage into a small package.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 It is mislabeled as a garage compactor...mine is in the kitchen...:)
Unit works well...the only trick is you have to read the manual on getting the unit to stop in the hold down mode...:rolleyes:
So, I'll tell those who hate to read manuals...:)
engage the compaction...and then just as you hear the motor building up for its reversal, flip the switch to the vertical position...hint this is only needed on rare occasions...:)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BigJC This product is noisey!
compared to my last unit this one shakes is VERY loud when running and doesn't quit compact as much as I would like to see (for the money)
