Hi Accumulated detergent from prior washings can cause problems with the soap dispenser. Buildup can get into the soap dispenser and interfere with the spring that triggers the flip-out tray, or it can slow down the pivot action of the tray. If the dispenser is not opening, first make sure you aren't loading the machine so dishes or pots and pans are touching the dispenser, and that dish racks aren't blocking the dispenser. Also check to make sure the dispenser tray isn't cracked. If leftover detergent in the tray is almost liquid, rather than just damp, the tray may be damaged.
If you can't solve the problem easily, replace the entire dispenser unit. This is usually easier than trying to disassemble it and replace separate parts. Use a new dispenser made for the dishwasher. The screws holding the dispenser in place may be on the front of the unit, or you may have to remove the front door panel to get to the screws and make the replacement. Remove the old dispenser and secure the new one, connecting it in the same way the old unit was attached.

If you post here your model number, I can find the exploded view for the dispenser and the manual.

Alternatively, If you post here your model number here you get the diagram yourself.

Thanks.

How to fill with liquid to keep glasses from spotting


open door look on the inside if you have a knob beside your detergent door un screw it like a soda cap counter clockwise. Pull out fill hole with liquid jet dry. screw cap back into place clockwise. just snug, not too tight. your cup should be full and dishes spotless. However not all have the jet dry dispensers so you may have to buy the dry variety that hangs in plastic basket on your rack.

If dishes still have spots you may have a water problem that may require a sevice technicians assistance for you.

How do you put the liquid soap dispenser back


The "bottle" screws in from the bottom. The "pump" is inserted in the top. I usually fill mine from the top without taking out the bottle. Too much of a pain. Just make sure the large nut holding the hardware in place is secure before you start assembling the bottom and top. If it's loose, the whole thing will wiggle around. Good luck!

Hoover 3010 FloorMate Plus not dispensing liquid


With the tank off, can you see if the rod in the handle is hitting the spot where the tank sits on, if not then there is a problem in the handle. If it is, then the reservior asm may be bad, it is what the tank sits on.

Fridgidaire front loader washer/ problems with softner dispensor


In the back of the dispenser is a button / lever to press down to remove the entire dispenser. Remove it and take off the cover over the fabric softener / bleach chambers. You may find some junk under the cups in that cover, or in the tubes sticking up through the bottom of the dispenser.
The way this thing works is like this: You fill up the dispenser with the liquid, but that liquid doesn't get up to the top of the tubes. When it's time to dispense, the washer adds water to the appropriate chamber, raising the level to above the tube. The liquid then goes down the tube, creating a suction which (ideally) draws the rest of the liquid up into the cup, over the edge of the tube, and down the dispenser. The washer will add water several times to accomplish this. The system isn't perfect, but it usually works with few moving parts.
If the fabric softener is especially thick, it will have a hard time getting siphoned down through the tube. If it looks as thick after the wash as it did before the wash, the machine isn't adding the water to the cup. I believe on the Frigidaire, there's a separate valve (all part of the same valve assembly) for each dispenser chamber. If it isn't adding the water, you'll have to replace the whole valve assembly.

Hoover Floormate SpinScrub won't dispense cleaning liquid


I had the same problem and was preparing to take it back, the last thing I tried was to 'reseat' the handle -- I removed it then snapped it very firmly back into place. That did it, it's working beautifully now!
