Can I get stainless steel door panels for my dishwasher and compactor to match my Kenmore model 106.44423600 refrigerator?
The existing dishwasher is a Whirlpool model GU1500 and the compactor is a Kitchen Aid model KCS200. The existing door inserts on both are black plastic. It is important that the SS is basically the same as the refrigerator.

The dishwasher does have an optional stainless steel door panel part number 8269845 but the compactor does not.
There is no way to guarantee that the stainless finish on your refrigerator will match the stainless steel on the compactor and dishwasher. Appliances that come from different sources and from different times can have subtle difference that can show up when placed side by side in a kitchen.
The compactor does not even have an optional stainless panel available. If the match is important then I suggest you shop new compactors and see if the stainless available will match your refrigerator. It may be hard to tell unless they're side by side.
Stainless made at different times and for different purposes can vary slightly in appearance.
The dishwasher does have an optional stainless steel panel and you can order it and see how it matches the refrigerator.
I hope this information helps you resolve this problem.
