The Whirlpool Gold built-in trash compactor series is very popular and has the unique Clean Touch console which is a smooth surface with no protruding switches or buttons to interfere with the cleaning process.
The Whirlpool Corporation is a leading global manufacturer of home appliances of all types, and has built an enviable reputation for innovative and reliable products since its founding in 1911.
Whirlpool Gold Clean Touch Console
The Whirlpool Gold undercounter trash compactor has Touch Pad controls on the Clean Touch Console which means no dials or other protrusions which would interfere with cleaning the outside of the machine.
Instead, simply wipe over with a cloth and you are done.
In addition, for safety purposes there is a removable key which prevents unauthorized use of the trash compactor, such as by children.
Whirlpool Gold Touch-Toe Drawer Opener
Another great feature of the Whirlpool Gold trash compactor is the ease with which the door can be opened, either for adding trash or replacing the trash compactor bags.
The door for the Whirlpool Gold can either be opened by lifting the handle or for ease of operation if you have hands full, a special foot pedal can be pressed which will also open the door.
The Touch-Toe mechanism is unobtrusive and blends in perfectly with the great design of the Whirlpool trash compactor.
Other Whirlpool Gold Features
The Whirlpool trash compactor is packed with lots of innovative features – these are some of our favorites:
- The trash compactor comes with rear installation wheels so you can easily position the machine in your desired location. These Easy Rollers can also be useful if you decide to use the Whirlpool Gold as a free standing trash compactor rather than an undercounter model.
- Most trash compactors these days have automatic anti-jam systems and the Whirlpool Gold has too. If a potential jam situation occurs, the compression plate will automatically reverse to its starting position.
- Sound insulation systems are found on most good trash compactors and the Whirlpool Gold has the excellent Quiet Pack sound conditioning included.
- The Whirlpool Gold makes it easy to remove a full bag and install a new one with a combination of a side release bin and a tilt away trash container.
