DWrate is on a distinguished road
The switch moves freely through the range of intended motion, nothing is stuck. I didn't have my multi-meter when I discovered the problem so I didn't check the switch continuity.

I bypassed the switch, the pump works great. When I first discovered this, it seemed like the pump was not receiving sufficient current because it was making only a slight 'whirring' sound and not the usual sound.

No matter what, I will replace the switch but I don't know if I had a defective switch or I have a different problem....
