You can basically make soap 3 ways;

The cold process, the semi- boiled or the hot process. The differences are based on the temperature that the soaps "react" and solidify.

Have Kenmore Elite 665 11yrs old, bakes soap on dishes top and bottom racks. Tried powder and liquid soap,no difference.Tried water heat with no rinse dry,no difference.

That seems like it's probably related to the recent ban on phosphates in dishwashing soaps. Quite a number of people have found that their dishwashers aren't working as well and are leaving spots and soap behind now that phosphates are not being used.
A little vinegar may help, but the best answer would be to use a water softener.

Kenmore Elite dishwasher will not dissolve soap or wash well.

Temperature should be 140F. and the units heater should energize during fill to achieve this.

Dish soap is not dissolving

First try a different brand of soap. Check that the soap door has opened about half way through the wash cycle. You may need a water softener.

My wcvh6800jmr - the liquid soap falls into the laundry drum as soon as I pour it in the dispenser and slide it in closed..

This is most likely due to the soap drawer divider not pushed all the way down.

The divider is adjustable to handle different types of soap (see below). My guess is that it got lifted and is allowing liquid soap to spill underneath rather than being pushed through the hose. Try pressing down on it really hard or removing and readjusting.

If this solved your problem, please rate me -- trying to get my "Wiz" certification so that I can offer premium support.

Soap doesn't dispense

There are different tips, In order for the unit to siphon the soap you need to use the tip that is for detergent. Its basically a tip that does not produce a high pressure it's more or less a soaker. Unit won't siphon under pressure. I hope this answer your question please rate the answer if it was helpful. Good Luck and have a great day. Jeff

Our Samsung washer does not adequately take all the soap out of the clothing after they are washed and rensed. Even a second complete wash cycle with out soap still leaves a soap residue strong enough to...

First check that the drain hose dumps into a standpipe that is taller that what the water level should be so no water is being lost. Next, I think I would try a different brand of detergent. and also for those in the northwestern US, detergent is known to be a problem due to restrictions in the formula. And I know what you said about how much soap you use, but it could be that the amount recommended on the soap box/bottle does not match the requirements for your machine, and the right amount also varies with water quality as in hard or soft, try using less.

Do you also use a softener? That is dispensed in the rinse, and softens the water, maybe too soft to get the soap to rinse clean.

Kenmore 80 series washer leaves soap residue on clothes no matter

After speaking with someone with trouble shooting experience in these matters, I now believe the problem lies NOT with the washer but with a bad batch of laundry detergent which fails to dissolve properly in the water.

Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner IV issue with soap dispenser

This happened to me as well. I think I solved the problem. It started when I first lowered the top rack. In doing so, the door doesn't open all the way. It also won't open all the way if your cutlery rack is in the front and you've put large utensils like a spatula. Consequently, detergent dried under the latch and it wouldn't firmly catch. For months I put up with it never emptying completely. The other day I took a tooth brush and very hot water and cleaned under the latch. After, I could feel a difference in the way the latch operated (with greater pop on opening). So far its been doing fine. Hope this helps.
