Question about Maytag MDB6000 Dishwasher

1 Answer

The soap dispenser door will not open - I have been putting the tablets/ in the silverware basket for now but the dishes are not always coming out the cleanest. I think this is because the soap is being used up at the wrong time. Help.

I believe this can happen if the unit is still engaged in a cleaning mode previously set. Try to close it and run a cleaning mode and then cancel that mode.

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.

Detergent tablet not dissolving.


sometimes the dispenser doors are not designed for tablets, and they don't let enough water in to dissolve them....next time you wash; put the tablet in one of the silverware compartments....should do the trick. and leave the dispenser door for liquid detergents only.

if this is helpful please click the correct button. thanks

Soap door will not open


Chaney,
Make sure there is nothing in the way of the soap door when you close the dishwasher.
Close the dishwasher door slowly and look down in side with a flashlight, are any of the rack brackets or silverware basket directly in front of the dispenser door.
Take a look and let me know.
Regards.

Soap left in dispenser. dried soap on dishes and siverware


After the fill cycle, check to make sure you have enough water in the dishwasher to wash effectively. You may need to have your fill valve replaced. You can test this by adding perhaps a liter of water to see if it makes a difference

Soap dispenser door


I have a whirlpool that had this problem ... items in silverware compartment were blocking the soap door. when we opened the DW, the soap door was open, but could not open properly during the cycle due to kitchen utensils in the way ... took a while to figure this our as it was intermitent (both the problem ... and us putting tall stuff in front of the soap door). Our soap door needs 3.5" of free space in front of it ... I think it's a design flaw. Good luck.

Dishwasher soap not opening


These rely on mechanical timers and springs on the soap dispenser. They get a bit gunked up after a while. Don't prewash and run the the dishwasher for a few cycles with the dispenser open (put the soap tablet in the cutlery basket). If you listen to the machine you may be able to hear the click when the dispenser should open which at least tells you that it should be working

Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher: soap problem


This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.

Soap does not seem to dissolve or clean


Probably a sticky dispenser door. Run for a few times with the dispenser open and put a tablet in the cultery basket
