Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
For three times now we have run the dishwasher to find the soap stuck in the dispenser like the lid just wouldn't open. What's up?
I have had the same problem in the past. Usually I found that something of large size was sitting in the corner just in front of where the soap door opens. The door tries to open, hits this item (in my case a cutting board) and can't open completely. Try keeping only short items in this corner and see if it helps. Good luck!

Check the dispenser for anything that may be caught in it. if you don't find anything, it needs to be replaced.

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these.
Hope this helps...
