Soap not Disolving

I just purchased a new Frigidaire dishwasher 2 weeks ago and it has been tempermental. Several times I have run the cycles and return when completed only to find that the soap has not dissolved and is still clumped in the tray, like a paste. Any ideas? Thanks

Possibly the water is not hot enough, it needs to be hooked up to a hot water line ONLY. also check to see what cycle the dishwasher is set at, there are three or four different settings. start off by using the pots and pans cycle because that cycle will delay the wash to superheat the water.
remember hot water only and water should be set at 120 degrees.
good luck to ya

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher Model # FFBD2411NS0A. It cycles but does not clean AND the soap dispenser does not open during cycle. Im handy but not an electrician. Is this a power issue or.....?


You will need remove the door panel and look at the device directly behind the soap dispenser. It will have 2 wires to it. If the wires look OK and not unplugged, that little device will probably need replaced. Thats what opens the soap cup.

Good afternoon Derek, I appreciate your post!

I understand that you are experiencing an issue with your Frigidaire dishwasher not cleaning and not dispensing soap. This may be a possible issue with your dispenser, water, or soap. I would suggest when you load your dishwasher to make sure no plate or stemware is blocking the dispenser. Also if the water pressure coming into your dishwasher is not between 20-120 PSI it will not provide enough pressure to open the dispenser or dissolve the soap. The water temperature should be above 120 and below 130. If you review all these troubleshooting steps and continue to have issue it could be a possible problem with your spray arms or motor. I would then recommend seeing assistance from a professional. This may help you avoid unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Soap not breaking down in dishwasher


Be sure to run kitchen water hot at faucet before starting dishwasher or you will get an entirely cold water washer. Also be sure the jet dry dispenser is not empty. Only use liquid jet dry. Pay no attention if soap says with jet dry. Does not work as well. Hope this helps.

Residue on dishes, soap not disolving. tried jet


Check the water intake screen for sediment. Often if enough sediment builds up the screen becomes clogged and these symptoms present themselves.
if you send me the make/model I will tell you where the intake screen is. Probably you have to take the unit out of the cabinetry and turn it over as most of the time the intake valve is inconveniently located on the bottom of the unit.

Dihes not clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
