New #W10177428 Support Rollers! What type of lube if any should be used on the shaft?

Todd for Model Number MDG9700AWW

ANSWER Hello Todd, The roller bushings are impregnated with a dry lubricant so as they wear, they will actually lubricate themselves. If they are lubricated, they have to be lubricated with either baby powder or corn starch. Ths is because a wet lubricant, such as oil or grease, will cause lint to stick to them. This lint gets pulled into the bushing of the roller and will actually cause the roller to fail prematurely.
