Why will the soap dispenser not open up ?

Does it open by itself during a cycle when there is no tablet inside? Have you changed to a different tablet recently? Some tabs are larger than intended for some machines and so put pressure on the lid and stopping the catch from sliding away and releassing the tab. Or it possible that the solenoid valve that operates the dispensor is faulty, Does the rinse aid still dispense?

Lsoap dispensor wont open during wash cicle

Hi! Most washing machines have some safety regulations that include opening the soap dispensor, this is why you should put the sufficient amount of soap before the process begins. There's nothing wrong or broken to your dishwasher, this is how these machines are made. I hope this will clear your problem. Have a nice day!

Doesn't clean well. Leaves dirt, etc on dishes.

this is not a lack in the machine but it sounds like you are not using soap/tablets. if you are using soap switch to tablets (such as affresh) and use a rinse agent (like jet dry). good luck with this problem! hope this solution works

Soap dispensor will not pop open

Hello. Some dishwashers have a fairly simple soap dispenser, while others have a complex one with linkage, and bimetal strips. That said, I want you to begin by thoroughly cleaning your cup with very hot water and a toothbrush so that you remove every trace of old detergent. The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. If not, you probably need to replace the entire cup assembly

The dispenser flap doesn't open

you should check first that power is going to the dispensor at the appropiate part of the cycle. to get at the dispensor, split the door - its screwed together by screws round the periphery. dispensor is just held in by usually 6 obvious screws
