SOURCE: soap dispenser cover latch will

Hi
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...

I have a quiet partner ii the soap dispenser door will not stay shut, how cab I fix it?


I have the same dishwasher, and have a problem with it shutting when soap cakes up on it. Have you tried scraping the latch door area? Once I cleaned out all the scale it shut better and when I close it, I push gently on the door and help the latch shut. It still opens fine during the cycle and the soap is gone.

Why does it keep dispensing soap?


What do you mean "keep dispensing soap"? Is this a GE dishwasher with an automatic soap dispenser? Or do you mean that the soap lid won't latch or stay closed? Or are you talking about the rinse-aid dispenser leaking rinse-aid (which is fairly common)?

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.

MY SOAP DOOR WONT STAY CLOSED


Soap dispenser latch problem.

a) Look at the latch whether there is build up of soap. CAREFULLY clean it. It might work.

b) If not just replace the whole dispenser unit. Not worth wasting time on trying to fix the spring problem. Most dispensers are $ 50 ~ $ 100 price range.

Ge nautilus dishwasher 165d5450p004 latch won't close


RoselsRose,
Thanks for the info about your grandson coming bye the dishwasher and messing with the dial! My son (14 month old) did the same thing and the soap dispenser door/latch would not stay closed. It just kept springing back open. I thought for sure the latch was broke until I saw your post and went to the outside dial and brought it back to off. Sure enough, the soap dispenser door stays closed. You just saved me an expensive repair! Thanks!

Soap dispenser cover latch will not stay in the hole. So now the soap holder will not stay closed.

Dishsoap stays in soap dispenser


ok, either a spring, trigger prob, on the latch, or a electronic prob. ok so to see if the latch is ok (or not) look closely for soap residue and scum, that may be hindering the latch or spring under. use metho, and warm water to clean this part. secondly go down to a white goods repair place and take your electrical component, button, lights its all one unit, simple unscrew it, i do think you will need a set of torque screws for that tho... anyhow ask the guy to get you a new or second hand one and install it. the timer will run, and the clip will release. good luck!
