Whirlpool GX900QPPS5 compactor will not shut off when

Customer Question

Whirlpool GX900QPPS5 compactor will not shut off when returning to the up position, The switch is compressing completely and I'm hearing 2 clicks when I press the switch manually. Is there a board or something this switch is feeding that is not shutting off the motor?

If your hearing two clicks and when the ram comes to full up position it is not stopping ,then you have a bad directional switch . and it will need to be replaced , just because it clicks does not mean the contact is not welded closed.
