Bosch diswasher detergent dispenser doesn't open during wash cycl

The dispenser doesn't open and release detergent during normal washing cycles.  The dishes appear to be clean, but there is detergent remaining in the compartment after cycle completion.  This is anew problem.  I can open the lid manually with no problem so nothing appears to be in the way. The model number is SHV66A and is the premium dispenser.

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

I own a Bosch home Dishwasher - Model SGV53E03GB-74 - where the wash tablet discharge cavity opens in the wash cycle but doesn't allow the tablet to drop, so the wash is ineffective and needs


Sounds like the dispenser door isn't opening. If it isn't being blocked by dishes, the dispenser door spring might be broken, the dispenser release solenoid could be faulty, or not getting power from the control panel. While you're waiting for it to get fixed, you can just put the detergent in the bottom of the dishwasher and run it on normal cycle. It also possible the dispenser door isn't opening wide enough for the puck to fall out. Make sure the door opens freely under it's own spring assist.

Cycle starts, soap box does not open. Cycle will repeat with water running for hours on end. No end to cycle or drying cycle. Checked inlet, outlet and tried reset.


Hello Paul,

There are a few possibilities here but I really need a little bit more detail from you and you're going to need to do some testing to determine the cause of the fault - or faults. You're going to need a Torx T20 screwdriver and a multi-meter which can measure volts and ohms for this.

The endless cycle times are commonly due to a fault in the water heating circuitry, but this could be anywhere from the heater relay on the timer/controller to a defective water heater. The failure of the detergent dispenser to open could also be due to a defective controller, but it could be the detergent dispenser release mechanism or the actuator for the dispenser that is defective.

There are so many possibilities here, I need to eliminate some before making any further suggestions. Please could you answer the following questions to assist me in solving your problem.

1. Your country - to determine power supply voltage and whether the dishwasher is hot or cold fill.
2. The model number of the dishwasher for component locations and disassembly instructions.
3. Is the water getting hot during a wash cycle?
4. Does the detergent dispenser open on any of the shorter wash cycles?
5. Do you have - or can you borrow - the tools Iisted above?

The best place to start would be to test the soap dispenser and a visual inspection of the PCB in the timer/controller for a burned out pin on the heater relay (more common in US models).

Please reply to me with these details and I'll get back to you asap.

Regards,
BElectric

The dipnser door won't open, so the tablet isn't released into the washer during the wash cycle?


Hi

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...

Detergent dispenser on SMEG DWF 44SS1 doesn't open during cycle - any ideas?


this is Usually caused by a tablet sticking in the Detergent Dispenser. This will stop the Detergent Dispenser from opening at the correct time on the wash cycle.

Bosch Aquasensor Detergent Dispenser door wont open during cycle


Behind the dispensor door there is a small selanoid you will need to replace this, test to see if its open circuit, alternatively you can just place the detergent in side the machine before you put it on a wash cycle is this would have the same effect. the only cycle you can not do this on is the one with the prewash, I think its number 1.
