Default Dishwasher Dial Problem
Model Number: DU850SWPBO   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Dishwasher dial extremely difficult to move sometimes. Have to really force it. Sometimes sticks at twelve O'clock position and will not move and have to let cycle run.

What can I do to fix this problem with the dial?

Thank you.

Drip couple drops of water between the timer knob and the panel. It will work as a lubricant.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL DU850SWPB0 | AppliancePartsPros.com

Thank you, Gene.

What about WD 40?

Gene, I'm assuming you mean the dial on the outside of the dishwasher and the outside panel.

Thanks, Gary

Yes, that's right. Do not use any oil or grease. Just one or two drops of water.
