We learned from our new Duet that when washing with Tide soap powder, there is an adjustment inside the pull out drawer where the soap powder goes. You will see a grey plastic slider that goes to the right for liquid soap & to the left for powder soap.
Moving this slider to the left corrected this problem - not using all of the soap powder needed - for us.
Good luck !

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.

There is still soap residue left on the clothes after the wash cycle ends on my whirlpool cabrio washer


Possible that the Rinse cycle is not timed to fill in enough with water or there is obstruction within the inlet valve. Also if there is too much soap that is dispensed it can remain back after the wash.
check the above and choose a normal program or one which is different from the present cycle.

Fabric softener does not despence


Hi

You'll need to clean the dispenser by removing it. Use white vinegar and spray then spray the dispenser & agitator with it too. Use hot water after a minute and vinegar will wash out the softener. Try using a soft brush to clean it. Try running a cycle with hot water and bleach (use no soap). Avoid using large amount of soap. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Whirpool Duet - Soap not getting into wash cycle


O.K. Is the water draining out properly? If the filter is blocked then your washing will be churning in dirty water as the machine will drain for a maximum time then rinse etc. in the used water.

My whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is apparently not opening during cleaning. I find dirty dishes and clumps of soap in the hopper. Whirlpool quiet partner II


I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

Soap dipenser


Try this... Wipe out the soap dish with white vinegar and a soft cloth.. make sure you get everything off the edges of the door and look for any nicks, blemishes or deformation of the dispenser door to make sure it is not mechanically binding up when it is cycled open. If Ok.. then.. clean your drain filter.. then.. start a wash cycle using the hottest setting ( without any dishes) .. and after about 10 minutes or so.. stop the process and open the door and add in 2 cups of white vinegar.. Let it complete the wash cycle.. When complete..try running a dishless cycle on any setting with detergent ( use about 1/3 less than you usually use) and see if that dispense adequately. If that works, then the next time you load the washer. make sure you don't have anything up against or limiting the door from opening. Hope this helps..

Soap Dispence problem on GHW9200LW


In applications with low water pressure, insufficient water
volume is introduced during the fabric softener dispensing
portion of the cycle to flush the dispenser.
RESOLUTION:
The holes in the dispenser housing were enlarged to allow
a greater volume of water to flow through the fabric
softener dispenser to properly dispense the fabric softener.
Order and replace the dispenser housing, Part
#8181719, to correct the condition
