Question about GE 24 in. GSD4020Z Built-in Dishwasher
My dishwasher does not dispense soap correctly and the soap sticks to the door.
SOURCE: Dishwasher soap dispenser sticks
Mine dishwasher (a Maytag) did this also. At first it was becoming stuck because of the soap. My repair guy cleaned it and I switched to liquid soap and it worked great another 2 years then did it again. That time it was just wore out and had to be replaced. I was told it was no longer available but we found it here http://www.repairclinic.com/and our repair guy installed it. He was amazed because he had even called everywhere.

Advance the timer, with one hand on the dispenser door. The timer should release the door at times during it's cycle, it may need a little help, but not very hard to turn.

If the soap door doesn't open all the time, remove the outer door cover and remove any obstructions. There are pieces of styrofoam and cardboard inside the door that come loose from time to time, and prevent the linkage from operating freely. They can be re-glued OR eliminated.

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time. The system should also help clean the sprayers.
