Question about Kenmore 15632 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher (model 15632) and just recently the trap door which holds the soap in its compartment is not opening automatically after the first prewash cycle purges water and washer enters the main wash cycle. I've looked at the latch that holds this trap door closed to see if there might be residue built up which might be preventing it from moving freely, but that doesn't appear to be the problem. It will run through the entire wash cycle without opening this door and no soap gets into the dishwasher. What is keeping this trap door from opening automatically?
Replace the spring that makes it open( its behind the soap dyspence door!

IT IS LIKELY BE A LATCH PROBLEM BUT YOU TOLD YOU ALREADY CHECKED THAT.
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.
