Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Main detergent compartment door does not open during wash.

I have a Kenmore Model 665, s/n 15522000, type 280-1 dishwasher and the main dish washing detergent compartment door, located above the pre-wash compartment on the inside of the main door does not open during the entire wash cycle.
The door is spring loaded and snaps open when I depress the catch manually.
I assume the force of the water is supposed to spring the catch and open the door during the wash but it's not working.
Please advise.
Thank you.

I scooped out the water and found a spoon jammed in the drain area. Works like a charm now.

Make certain that there are no apparent obstructions between water and detergent. If no obstructions and the detergent dispenser and spray arms are operable, then the detergent should dissolve during wash. Otherwise, try using a different kind and amount of detergent (e.g.: powder vs. gel or gel vs. powder, and less detergent). If still clumping, contact an appliance service company.

Obviously your heater is not working during the main wash cycle. This could be caused by a bad heating element of course, a bad thermostat, a bad controller, or even the door latch (1 of the 2 switches may be bad or may not be getting engaged when you close the door).

Dishwasher doesn't wash dishes right


The solenoid that opens the detergent door may have had water leak into it. Remove the inner panel from the main door, remove the solenoid mechanism and it's core. With the core out, clean the solenoid interior and the core surface with hot water. The core should fall out of the solenoid by gravity if it is clean. DO NOT OIL THE CORE OR SOLENOID. If there are signs of water entry to the solenoid, check the detergent dispenser seal for damage. Try using a tab type of detergent rather than liquid or powder. Make sure the release mechanism is clean as well. Hope this repairs your problem!

Check both arms are spinning freely when you have the machine loaded up normally.
If thats ok you could try powder instead of tabs if they are not disolving correctly
