      Answer

      Dear Customer, The GC900QPP trash compactor is a convertible, freestanding model with castors that can be moved from room to room. Model GX900QPP will have the same features as the GC900QPP model only this is an undercounter model that has to be built-in in a cabinet setting. Models GX900QPP and GC900QPP are the most featured compactors Whirlpool offers. Model TU800SPP is an undercounter model that will not have some of the features that the GC900QPP model has. Model TU800SPP features knob controls whereas model GC900QPP has touch pad controls. Model TU800SPP does not have the hidden removable key control knob that the GC900QPP has nor does it feature the tilt-away trash basket. Thank you for your interest in the Whirlpool trash compactors.

      Answer

      You would just order the specific bags for your unit. For instance your dealer can contact us to determine the part number for the bags on model GC900QPPB or you could request the parts list for your unit after purchase so you have it on hand to order the bags whenever you feel is necessary.

      Answer

      The differences between the two models is that the GC900QPP is a freestanding but can also be built-in using an accessory kit and the GX900QPP is just a built-in unit. To view the compactor trim kit you must log on to our outlet center at http://outlet.whirlpool.com or call them direct at 1-888-923-8505 Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 6 PM EDT. Another option would be to try to purchase the part 882756 on EBay.
