SOURCE: soap dispenser door doesn't open during cycle of my Maytag dishwasher

Kqon, looks like your dispenser has a wax motor. I think the first thing you have to do is remove the inner door and inspect the soap dispensor assy. See if any of the moving parts are broken. This wax motor is 120V so you can run a cheater cord to it to see if it works, but be very careful when doing this. It will expand the plunger and open the flap. If the wax motor operates with 120V applied to it then you want to see if you have power coming from the timer. It will be the tan wire # 27 on the timer harness. You also want to make sure the spring and pin are in place on the dispenser flap. Your part number for the wax motor is 902899. Catriver.

A wax motor controls the opening of the lid. Also a seal that fits around the latch lever may be deteriorating and obstructing the function of the lever. Follow the link below for images and part numbers with cost.

SOURCE: Soap dispenser door doesn't open for the second cycle.

Hi, the soap dispenser has a motor / solenoid which controls the latch that opens the door. This has gone bad and needs to be replaced. It is located inside the dishwasher door panel. Remove the screws around the inside of the door to gain access to the solenoid. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Maytag diswasher not releasing rinse aid


I am guessing you have tried cleaning the door with very hot water and dish washer soap. If so, then the front portion of the main door will need to be removed to check the bi-metal strip during the wash / rinse cycle to verify the timer is sending current to the dispenser properly.

The dipnser door won't open, so the tablet isn't released into the washer during the wash cycle?


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...

Hi, we have a Frigidaire FBD1050REM diswasher that the soap door intermittantly won't open, leaving soap all over. Any ideals? Thanks, Christine


I have the same dishwasher and the same problem. What works for me 95% of the time is to push the soap door latch once before I load the soap and close the door. There seams to be two positions on this latch and one opens better. Also, make sure your top rack is pushed all the way to the back before closing the main door.
Personallly, I am looking for a replacement dishwasher!

Cleaning Cycle not Starting


Please provide the model number and the approximate age of the dishwasher.
If this diswasher uses a turning dial to select the cycle, which turns as the dishwasher progresses, I strongly suspect that this timer has failed and needs replacement. Especially since the soap door never opens. Does the dishwasher drain during and at the end of the full cycle?

We have had the same problem with clear glasswear with both Kenmore and Maytag diswashers, in fact any diswasher I have used. It seems to be a problem with diswasher soaps. Either try a different soap (continue using Jet Dry), or do what I do and periodically go over your glasswear with an SOS pad.

Diswasher detergent door


lizzie1 First thing check if the lower dish rack is in right position. If it is in wrong position it is not enough room for the lid to pop up open. Try to turn the dish rack around and see if it works. If not, then I'll need the full model number for your dish easher. Gendos...post back
