KOLHER Soap dispenser won't dispence soap. - Kohler K-5988-2-7 Entree Self-Rimming Kitchen Sink, Black Black

    I have a soap dispenser installed in my kitchen sink. It has stopped dispensing soap. I have cleaned it, looking for clogged soap, and see nothing obvious. If I depress the pump repeatedly (100 times) it will emit a little foam, but no soap. Before you ask,; yes there is soap in the under-sink container. Does it need priming? If so, how does one do that?

    Have you noticed if "straw like tube" is in pump? if not has probably fallen into soap bottle.Retrieve by unscrewing from under and fish out fallen piece,no need to prime or can check prime by inserting into glass of warm water and pumpng until results 4-9 pumps should do. no results pump is wore out or straw has hole or crack in it. buy new replace.

Pull the dispenser out. Put it in semi hot water foe a few minutes to clean it. Then put the pickup tube in a glass of water and pump it untill water comes out. They get clogged with soap after so long.
Good Luck

I had the same problem and found out that the neck of the soap bottle had broken off and the bottle was in the bottom of the cabinet. Does anyone know where I can get a new bottle? I can't find a part number on the Kohler site. Thanks

My kenmore he2 wont dispence the soap in the soap dispencer


Evening to you
Allow the washer to start a cycle and have the dispenser drawer ajar and observe through which dispenser the water goes.
Does the first stream go through the pre-wash dispencer,secondly notice where the main stream goes and lastly where the softener would go. If this can help you in any way just put use the dispencers as fits the washing.
goodluck

My dish washer soap does not dissolve, whether or not I put the tablet or the pillow into the soap dispenser. Is it the soap dispenser door? Would hard water buildup create low water pressure so the soap...


The most likely causes are the you are using a tablet in a gel coating but putting the tablets into the dispenser drawer when the dispencer drawer is damp, thus causing the tablet to stick inside the housing; or, if the dispenser drawer is releasing the tablet into the bottom of the cabinet then I would say you have a problem with your water heater. In which case you would need an enginner to come and replace the heater.

Hope this is of help

Dishwasher won't access soap tray


Check if the dish rack is reversed. If it is, it'll block the dispenser from opening.
If that is not the case - you may have problems with soap dispencer solenoid or with control board. Unplug the d/w. Disassemble the door, and find the solenoid contacts on the dispenser. Check for continuity. No continuity - replace dispenser.If dispenser is ok, check wiring for continuity. Otherwise it's the board.

Soap Dispencer Doesn't Always Open


We are having the same issue with a new dishwasher. One solution is to leave the soap dispenser box open when you close the door. This will at least get soap in the washer.

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
