Soap dispensing problems on a kenmore dishwasher elite 577-0

I have a problem,

After the wash cycle in my dishwasher there is something wrong with the soap dispenser. The soap remains partially full and stuck on to the dispenser. Also there are streaks down the hatch of the dishwasher where you can tell the soap has just escaped the dispenser and not washed the dishes. Can someone help me.

Is your soap door open when this happens if it is then make sure there's no water or other liquids in the dispenser from loading the washer one tablespoon of water in there will clump up the soap and it won't drop when it pops open

Dishwasher wont finish any cycles


That blinking light is trying to tell you that there is something wrong with the dishwasher. You need to fix the problem or else that blinking light will come back. And the number of times it blinks (before it pauses and repeats) will tell you (or a technician) what is wrong. How many times does it blink?

The soap remains inside the dispenser, thus door opens up, but soap remains inside....just drips down the door.


What you have is a faulty cycle timer. Replace this and your dispenser will dispense the soap when prompted.

From your description even when the soap dispenser opens it is opening late which is why all the soap does not dissolve.

Try adding only half as much soap and see if it opens then - even a little spilled soap catching on that little latch mechanism can cause it to be difficult to close and stick opening.

Also make sure that the spring that controls the door is not broken.

Kenmore Elite soap door problem


Dispenser may be bad. Push the hi-temp button , air -dry, hi-temp, air-dry in that order. All lights will lite up and this will do test cycle of all components. If soap disp opens then soap tab may be the issue. I have had intermittent dispenser issues and they are often hard to solve as other components may be at fault.
