Question about Whirlpool 24 in. DU850DWG Built-in Dishwasher
My diswasher dispenser door doesn't open during the cycles the soap stay in
Lizzie1 First thing check if the lower dish rack is in right position. If it is in wrong position it is not enough room for the lid to pop up open. Try to turn the dish rack around and see if it works. If not, then I'll need the full model number for your dish easher. Gendos...post back

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these.
Hope this helps...
