I am replacing the motor/pump assembly on my Whirlpool dishwasher. I have cleaned the internal parts, and am looking to assemble everything again. So what kind of grease is safe to use on the o-rings? Specifically the o-rings on the thermistor and drain pump. When I removed the drain pump, I noticed the grease that was on there was a yellowish color. Maybe from age, use???



This is probably a simple question, I just want to be 100% sure I do not use any toxic lube/grease on the internal parts of my dishwasher.



Dishwasher:

Whirlpool DUL240XTPB3



Thanks in advance for any advice.

You do not need to use any special grease. The best lubricant is Rinse Aid! It will not suds up and acts as a great lubricant.
