Product Overview

Easily install this convertible compactor to take care of the trash anywhere. With a portable design, it can even go in the garage or pantry. The generous 1.4 cu. ft. capacity holds more, so you can take the trash out less. Easy rollers installation wheels help you position the compactor where you want it. Plus, the touch-toe provide hands-free opening. A light tap of the toe does the trick, releasing the drawer with ease. What's more, you get touch pad controls on the clean touch console. Its smooth surface has no dials or switches so it wipes down easily with the simple swipe of a cloth.
  • Clean touch console with touch pad controls provides a streamlined look that's easy to clean and offers an easy-to-use cycle selection with just the press of a button
  • 1/3 HP motor provides maximum compacting power
  • Touch-toe drawer opener allows hands-free access to deposit trash
  • Automatic anti-jam reverses the compression ram during operation to prevent jamming when the door is opened
  • Hidden removable key control knob keeps the drawer locked during use and can be removed and stored out of children's reach for added safety
  • Quiet Pack Sound Conditioning reduces noise so you can run the compactor without disrupting your home
  • Bag retainer buttons help keep the bag in place and prevent slipping
  • Heavy-duty trash bags included; additional bags may be ordered (model # W10165294RB)
  • Convertible design allows for freestanding or built-in installations. A convertible compactor is ideal for installation in a utility room or garage

Asked by Vick August 7, 2020

Answer

Hello Vick, per the installation instructions the Trash Compactor needs to be secured to the top of a counter. With that being said, it cannot be free standing. Hopefully this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Whirlpool appliances!

I’m looking at the convertible white compactor and wanted to make sure it plugs in a regular electrical wall outlet?

Answer

This compactor is for use on a single phase, 115-volt, 60 Hz, AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused and properly grounded circuit and is equipped with a grounding plug as shown below(Page 4 of the Use & Care Guide). It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided. Hopefully this information is beneficial to you. Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Whirlpool appliances!

We have had one for years, a built in unit in our prior house. after downsizing into a smaller house without a trash compactor, this was a "must have" to get when moving in. Living elsewhere without a compactor really proved the value of having these. This model is not a built in unit, so it is a bit bigger than our old one, since it has the outside panels. But it looks good in the area we have it, and it of course works well. Since most cities are charging more an more for trash service, this thing lets you really compress the trash that goes out, so you can fit more in the can! If there was one thing to change, I would add a back panel like the sides to cover the back. The two sides are finished in nice, black textured steel panels and the back is plain steel with the cord showing. If the unit is sitting out next to a cabinet, the back side looks unfinished, like the back of a toaster oven or something. Some day, I will make a wooden cover, but for now, we have a can for collecting recyclable items we can't put in the compactor covering the back. Don't let that stop you from getting one though! They are worth having, and if it is anything like our old one, it will last for many years! In the pictures, excuse the mess. We were still moving in...

Great Trash Compactor!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We built a house in Oklahoma in 2005 and this Whirlpool Trash Compactor was installed in our home. When we moved back to Texas in July 2019, we had our kitchen island extended to accommodate the same Whirlpool Trash Compactor. We have always been pleased with this trash compactor's appearance and performance.

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?

I love my new compactor. It replaces one that I had for over 10 years. It reduces my trash to a manageable size for a senior citizen. Everyone should have one.
