Power Nut
PartSelect Number PS11744741
Manufacturer Part Number WP777533
This part is a power nut, and it is intended to be used in conjunction with trash compactors. The function of this nut is to fasten to the side of the ram where it is threaded. When the power screw rotates, it is fed through the power nut, which pulls the ram down to compress the trash. This part is just over an inch in diameter, and is just one inch thick. This part is white and made entirely of plastic. The reason for needing to replace this part is if your compactor ram gets stuck, or if it does not stop at the end of the compacting cycle.

Drive Gear Kit
PartSelect Number PS257882
Manufacturer Part Number WC36X5071
The drive gear is located at the bottom of your compactor and helps the drive motor power the ram by operating the chain that powers the compacting ram. If you notice that your drive gear is broken or damaged, look to replace it straight away to avoid causing any more damage to the trash compactor. If your trash compactor is jammed or stuck with the ram in the down position, it could be due to the drive gear being damaged or faulty. The most common issue with drive gears is that the teeth break. This occurs through regular use. Once teeth are broken from the gear, you should replace the part. This kit comes with everything you will need to properly install your new drive gear.
