Manufacturer Part Number W10165295RP
Trash compactor bags are a practical way to discard your waste. Due to the extreme pressure of the compactor, trash compactor bags designed to handle the force are necessary. These bags are made from tough 2.5-millimeter, multi-laminate plastic, and the patented Slip-Grip design prevents the bag from slipping into the compactor bin. They measure approximately 15 inches wide x 15 inches high and are made from 50 percent post-consumer recycled plastic. This pack of 15 trash compactor bags is a genuine OEM replacement part, and will fit most rectangular 15-inch trash compactors.

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.

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 tools you will need for this repair include a pair of channel lock pliers, and a 9/16 wrench.

Directional Switch
★★★★★
★★★★★
(12)
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.

Scott from Indianapolis, 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.
