Trash Compactor Directional Switch
★★★★★
★★★★★
15 Reviews
PartSelect Number PS11744742
Manufacturer Part Number WP777811
The function of the directional switch on your trash compactor is to ensure the ram lowers to compress your trash, then returns to the top position. If your trash compactor does not complete this task, will not stop at the end of the compacting cycle, or is noisy during operation, you may need to replace the directional switch. Be sure to disconnect your trash compactor from the power source before completing this repair. This is a fairly easy repair. After you open the control panel of the compactor, all you will need to do is unplug the old switch from the electrical wires, and plug the new switch in.

Trash Compactor ram wouldn't lower
I pulled the trash compactor out from under the counter.

I took out the four screws that kept the top cover in place to expose the ram.

The gear shafts were turning but the ram would not lower, at first I though the ram drive bolts were stripped and it wouldn't engage the shaft. Then I realized there was a mechanical directional\limit switch at the top that controlled the power and direction the gear shafts were turning, this switch was broken.

Just had to take off the front plate that was held on by a number of screws and replace the switch that was held on by two more screws. It had five wires attached to it, the new switch was clearly labeled as to which color wire went where.

Paper & Plastic 15” Compactor Bags not available
I have always used compactor bags made of paper & plastic. I was sent bags made of only plastic. I called and was told that is the only kind available. I am concerned that the plastic bags may not be strong enough.

I quest I will have to try these all plastic bags. I hope they are strong enough and work properly.

PartSelect Number PS16542383
Manufacturer Part Number WC21X20249
This is a top limit directional switch for a trash compactor. The directional switch reverses the motor direction when the trash compactor has reached the top of the drawer. If your trash compactor is not completing the compact cycle properly, you may have to test the switch. If you have a multimeter, you can perform a continuity test before ordering this part to determine if a continuous electrical path is present in the switch. If there is no electrical path in your switch, you will need to replace it. This is an authentic replacement part sourced directly from the original manufacturer.

Installation Instructions
Brian from HOUSTON, TX
Trash compactor would not shut off at end of cycle. Would have to manually turn it off.
Removed compactor from opening. Using screw driver unthreaded 4 screws from top and then removed the on/off dial. Face plate came off easy and provided access to relay switch bank. Unscrewed two screws which allowed both relay switches to be removed and replaced. Recommend replacing both relay switches. Reassembled and compactor worked fine. Very easy job. If your compactor is making a machine gun noise during the return cycle then this will solve your problem. Read more...

The front facing foot is sold individually. It is used on your washing machine and can also be known as an adjustable leveling leg. This specific front facing leveling leg has a rubber foot. It is important that when installing this part you are very careful, if not installed correctly your washer will be off balance which will then cause it to vibrate and/or shake during the cycle. The function of the adjustable foot is to keep your washing machine supported and to make sure that it is level at all times. The tools you will need for this repair include a pair of channel lock pliers, and a 9/16 wrench.

Bearings went out in the drum.
purchased the bearings at Napa auto parts for 16$. Over all it was a little difficult to get the bearings out and back in. Used a brass drift to drive them out and to seat them back in.. Read more...
