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.

The problem is with either the spring or the solenoid that operates the detergent compartment door. It should be released at the right time by the controller during wash cycle. You have to check the spring and see if it stuck. But if solenoid is faulty then whole detergent dispenser has to be replaced. You could switch to detergent tablet which you drop in the cutlery basket and it works fine. A brand like Finish works well and keeps dishwasher clean.
Alternatively you can purchase a replace detergent dispenser from

My washer (whirlpool duet) seems to cancel in the middle of load cycle. Most often the word "suds" is displayed. It is not the amount of detergent or the type because I use very little High Efficiency...


SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)

The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on

the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may

signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

DISPLAY EXPLANATION AND RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE


Suds

6 - 7

Potential Causes

• If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a

Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the

excess detergent.

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked

• Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and

Central Control Unit (CCU)

• Check/ Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects

• Check Drain Pump

• Check the Pressure Switch

• Check CCU

Whirlpool gu2200 dishwasher, the detergent


Either:

1. the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4 times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
3. motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor during wash/rinse cycle.

Good luck,

Which compartment is for the laundary soap


According to my information the dispenser drawer has four separate compartments for adding laundry products to the wash load. These compartments are:
1. Prewash Detergent Compartment
2. Main Wash Detergent Compartment
3. Bleach Compartment
4. Fabric Softener Compartment

Laundry products are diluted and dispensed automatically
at the proper time during the wash cycle. The separator in the Prewash and Main Wash Detergent Compartment can be moved to accommodate either liquid or powdered detergents.
