Question about Dishwashers
Hi, it seams that the dishes get washed in cold water, I realize this when I was trying to work out why the dispenser wasn't opening, at the end of the wash cycle the powder was still in the dispenser.
Do u have the washer hooked to the hot water line. It should be if its not. Also be sure u run the hot water at the sink until it is hot before u start the 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.
