SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: soap dispenser doesn't open

I have had the same problem in the past. Usually I found that something of large size was sitting in the corner just in front of where the soap door opens. The door tries to open, hits this item (in my case a cutting board) and can't open completely. Try keeping only short items in this corner and see if it helps. Good luck!

SOURCE: soap dispenser problem?

Check the water supply. Start cycle then open the door after it fills and check water level and spray action. If everything is soaking wet, there is probablyl a pizza pan blocking the soap tray.

SOURCE: The soap dispenser only opens sometimes. When the

IF DISPENSER IS CLOSED WHEN FINISHED COMPLETE CYCLE .
THERE ARE TWO WAYS THAT D/W'S
OPEN THE DISPENSER ONE IS BY WAY OF TIMER TRIPPING LATCH, OTHER IS BY WAY OF BIMETAL IN THE DOOR. THE SOLID IS BECAUSE OF THE MOISTURE ABSORPTION OF THE SOAP. THIS IS ASSUMING THAT YOU HAVE NOT BLOCKED THE DISPENSER DOOR WITH SOME OBSTRUCTION.

Dispenser door will not open


Hey friend, thank you for the post!

I understand that your soap dispenser door will not open on your Frigidaire dishwasher, LGBD2432LW0A. You could possibly be seeing an issue with soap dispenser not getting water into it to release the soap from dispensing. I would check to make sure there are no dishes blocking or obstructing the soap dispenser. You could also remove the soap dispenser to clean it and make sure there is no buildup of any previous detergent remaining that would cause the door to not open. If those steps do not solve the issue it could be a problem with the dispenser and I would recommend having a tech come out to the home to properly diagnose and repair the dishwasher. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Borax is alkaline. Try putting a few ounces of straight vinegar into the bottle, as it is quite acidic. It might foam a bit, but it should eventually "burn through" the Borax clog if you leave it a day or two.

(Picture that!)

Soap is not dispensing soap dispenser will not open up when I run the machine. Not soap is in the area for a blockage. Please advise what I can do. Thank you Terri


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...

Soap dispenser does not open during wash


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Remove any dishes in the dishwasher. Unhook the dishwasher's dish trays or racks from their tracks, and set aside. Empty the soap dispenser if it contains unused soap that failed to dispense. Use a wet rag to wipe down the interior of the dishwasher, as well as the inside of the dispenser.
 
2. Close the dispenser, and shut the dishwasher door. Turn the dishwasher on to a manual setting, then stop it and open the appliance. Check to see if the dispenser is open. If it is, continue to Step 2. If the dispenser is closed, skip to Step 4.

3. Switch dishwasher soap. Some dishwasher dispensers have difficulty with dry or liquid dishwashing soap, depending on the make and model of your dishwasher. Incompatibilities typically result in the dispenser sticking shut, which explains why the dispenser opens when empty. Switch to liquid soap if you are using dry powder soap, or vice versa.

4. Check the dishwasher soap dispenser's spring. The spring is located behind the dispenser top's hinge. Consult your dishwasher's original manufacturer's manual or user guide to find a replacement spring. Pop the old spring out with a screwdriver, and replace with a new spring. This should resolve any issues related to the dispenser failing to open.
Please post comments if you need more help or information..........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 630 1630 9400 Soap Dispenser Problem


From your description even when the soap dispenser opens it is opening late which is why all the soap does not dissolve.

Try adding only half as much soap and see if it opens then - even a little spilled soap catching on that little latch mechanism can cause it to be difficult to close and stick opening.

Also make sure that the spring that controls the door is not broken.

Soap dispenser flap not opening


Not a solution but exactly the same problem. I should have sent the machine back (I bought mine about 2008 too) but by now, 2010, the machine is a complete waste of time and money. The soap dispenser fails to open every time, wasting money, water and my patience because I then have to hand wash after all. will try the suggested oil trick, but it was obviously a bad design to start with.

Dishwasher soap dispenser won't open during cycle


I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.
