Question about Kenmore 17252 Free-standing Dishwasher
Soap door will not open.
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. In case it will not solve your problem, the unit should be replaced. Good luck!

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to
allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door
spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the
door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer
(plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The
plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door
open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work.
Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the
connections to these.
Hope this helps...
