Question about Dishwashers
Servicing the Detergent Dispenser
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.open the dispenser 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.

I have the same problem...I think I mixed the soap types (Enzyme based with Bleach based). The manual clearly says not to do this.
What I did was brought out my trusty wet-vac and sucked it out while using HOT water to break up the crusty mess. I am going to fill the dispenser with water and add soap the old way until I see the "low soap" light go on.
I'll keep you posted if this happens.
