Soap dispensor will not click shut

My kenmore 363.14589100 dishwasher soap dispensor does click shut. The washer does have a note on it saying that the cycle must be over for it to be closed which I make sure it is. I just bought this house and there is no instruction manuel for the dishwasher...

Your dishwasher, although a Kenmore, was made by GE. Dispensers have been a big issue for them in the past; they actually redesigned them quite a bit 3 to 4 years ago. Is it the kind that slides across to lock in place, or does it fold over like a clamshell? Often there is a little spring that holds the lip in place, and it can easily wear out, allowing dispenser to pop open easily. I would check http://www.searspartsdirect.com for technical information, or possibly go to the http://geappliances.com website to see if they can give more information.

When I turn the washer it goes in the load sensing cycle and starts to spin no water comes in and then starts this clicking.


sounds like soap dispenser motor is stalling and or jammed. if you take the top off machine and look at soap dispensor reservoir there is a little motor there this will have a long arm shaped like an arrow that poins to number imprinted on the soap dispensor. check that if its stalling replace it gtg.

NO Clean Dishes


dear sir this may be the problem  Dishwashers usually run on 115-volt or 120-volt power. The water they use comes directly from the water heater, and wastewater is drained into the sink's drainpipe. The dishwasher is not connected to the cold-water supply. For best dishwashing results, set the temperature control of the water heater to no less than 140 degrees Farenheit. Water cooler than this usually doesn't get the dishes clean, unless your dishwasher is a newer model that preheats incoming water. The water shutoff for the dishwasher is typically located below the adjoining sink.
Caution: Because the dishwasher is connected to both the plumbing system and the electrical system, you must consider both systems when working on this appliance. Before doing any work on the dishwasher, make sure the unit is unplugged or the power to the unit is turned off, and remove the fuse or trip the circuit breaker that controls the circuit at the main entrance panel or at a separate panel. Shut off the water supply to the dishwasher at the shutoff in the basement or crawl space under the kitchen.how-to-repair-a-dishwasher-1.jpg

Liduide soap


Hi mansim,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: how to use liquid dish soap in the kenmore dishwasher?and which place in dishwasher?

I think it prudent we are first clear on terminology. Based on your discription of your "dish soap", please be certain it says "dishwasher soap". If it doesn't say "dishwasher" on it then it's not meant for your dishwasher.
For a standard american dishwasher the soap goes into a small cmpartment in the door. Just open door fully and you will see the rectangular box on the left. Soap in, then close box. The dishwasher will open it on the second cycle.

Feel free contact me again!
