Question about Dishwashers
OK, just when I thought I would get around to fixing this 6-year old washer, another thing is now not working... guess I'd better get busy!
1) The dishwasher interlock does not work. You can press any desired cycle, and the machine will start running through the cycle. Even if the door is open! Does not detect whether the door is open or shut. Sounds like another part to fix?
2) For some time, the dishwasher rinse-aid has been leaking. Fill it one time, and it almost all leaks out in first wash. So we stopped using it in the meantime.
3) Finally, the soap dispenser opens -- sometimes -- but not others. So we manually watch it to be sure it starts. I saw the other posts on Bosch dishwashers, and that this is probably a solenoid actuator mechanism. Will start looking for how to order online.
Don't know what you did with the spring but it only needs replacing if it is broken

Door lock is in the wrong position. open door and use 2 small screwdrivers to lever lock to correct position. bend the hook on the cabinet slightly downwards if it is a metal hook
rinse aid and detergent dispensors are 1 item. could well be faulty but can also be module. check you are getting volts to the solenoid at appropiate part of the cycle
