Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15689 Built-in Dishwasher
Door will not open during cycle to let soap into the dishwasher.
Most detergent cups are spring loaded and released by either a mechanical trip or by a bi-metal strip latch. If your model is a simple dial timer type, look for a mechanical linkage between the timer and detergent cover. If it is a touch panel control, look for the other type. The bi-metal strip type has a heating wire wraped around it that can open electrically or burn out physically.
Mechanical types can be checked by rotating the timer knob 360 degrees while watching the detergent cover linkage. Electrical types require use of an ohm meter to check the resistance of the heating element on the bi-metal strip.
If you are using powder type detergent, make sure it is not caked when added to the cup or it can jam the rotating type covers.
