Soap drawer on bottom washer won't open

The soap dish seems locked, There is a red light showing where you would add the jet dry. That lid will come off but cannot open the soap drawer at al. Ran a cycle without adding soap thinking perhaps someone had open the drawer mid cycle and drawer was locked so one could not add more soap,but that didn't seep to help.

Hi and welcome to FixYa.
That cup is held closed by a simple clip that is molded into the dispenser. There is nothing that would really keep it closed unless it is physically broken. Without being there to see the situation it is is hard to offer up anything else. I can say that if the cup is broken, that dispenser is a part #526860. It is not hard to change at all, you can do it yourself and you can order one here:

You can download the user manual but that may not help you solve the problem.

I can see that there has been foaming in the dishwasher due to the incorrect detergent which caused the flood switch to trip.

You will have to take both drawers out and dry out the flood switch at the base of the housing from inside. You will use towels and hair dryer.

Make sure the power is turned off at the circuit breaker.

See the installation manual on page 7 step 2 to find out how to remove the drawer. Make sure you don't pull out carefully so the hoses at the back don't get stretched.

What kind of dish soap do you use and where do you put it?


Any dish washer soap powder. Refer to the manual.

Mostly if you open the door you will find a small plastic type box for the soap powder.

Unable to find ! Do not worry. Put it in a small lid and place it. The water jet will do the rest!!

the rinse aid compartment has to be one of the biggest things in your unit. it helps with drying process or you will have wet dishes, helps with spots, and also with the cleaning process, this is what you can do . add jet dry or rinse aid not soap .fill compartment then close door ,then raise and lower door 3times then open the compartment door and add more repeat this process until you cant add anymore. this will pull all of the air out of the dispenser and allow you to fully fill compartment . the light should go off .

add Jet Dry or some other sheeting agent to the wash. also most pros frown on liquid soap (gel) so try the hard tablets, most have the jet dry built in. This also ensures the correct amount of soap. if this is a new development check the screens on the bottom of the washer under the spray arm and see if they are clogged with food or gunk. sounds like you are not getting a good rinse.

Dishwasher problem


Symptoms:
Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath dispenser.

Solution:

Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.

Explanation:
The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.

During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.

When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.
