SOURCE: Asko 1876 dishwasher soap flap opens as soon as power on.

I don't know about the control panel - I am having trouble with mine too, but in regard to the soap dispenser -- don't use it anymore. Just buy those little tablets. That is what the secretary at the repair shop told me when I had a problem and that's been fine.

Testimonial: "THE SOAP TABLETS ARE A GOOD IDEA , BUT IT DOESN'T STOP THE DISPENSER BEING POWERED ON ALL THE TIME AND POSSIBILY OVERHEATING. SO STILL NEED A SOLUTION"

SOURCE: My Asko D1716 dishwasher works fine apart from the soap dispenser. It won't open to release the soap.

Most likely it's a corroded door catch or a bad solenoid. Hopefully it's not the main control board. You'll need a repair manual or technician. A work around would be to use detergent tablets in the compartment

SOURCE: soap dispenser won't stay closed

Only two reasons this may happen. One is the dispenser is just bad (most likely) or that the timer is somehow malfunctioning and sending power to the soap dispenser all the time (least likely) You will usually know if its the second because the dispenser will get really warm after the dishwasher had been on for a few minutes.

My LG dishwashing soap little door will not open and dispense soap during the cylcle. I have tried all different types of soaps but it continues to stay closed.


Remove the Soap Dispenser from the door, and replace the solenoid at the back of it, should find one at your nearest appliance spares outlet. First check if the 2 cables are connected though, they might have become loose after frequent opening and closing of the door. Or even better, replace the "cheap" part with P/N: 1267691 @ Repairclinic.com

Hope this helps :-)

Kind Regards

GE Harmony top load washer: The soap tray when filled with liquid soap will not properly dispense the soap when the water is filling the machine and the soap tray remains full of water and soap at the end...


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...

My soap dispenser is stuck closed cant open it


The soap door has a latch to open it. Pour some warm water on it with the machine door completely open to melt old soap around dispenser. Read instructions on door.

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

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

The soap isn't coming out of the soap dispenser during the wash cycle. when i open the dishwasher door the dispenser opens with all of its contents still sitting there!


I had the same problem once. Make sure nothing is stacked in front of the soap dispenser when you close the door. Slowly close the door and follow the soap dispenser to make sure it has enough clearance to open.
Let me know how it goes.

Detergent door opens, but does not spring back. After cycle is done, some of the soap is still in dispenser because door does not open back all the way.


Hello. I can illuminate this issue for you and offer a couple of choices. Dishwashers have a soap dispenser located on the inside of the door. When the timer cycle calls for the soap to be emptied into the dishwasher, it either sends electricity to a bi-metal switch that opens it, or it mechanically opens the soap dish.

I always recommend to my customers that they go with a product like cascade 2 in 1 action pacs. These little pacs are merely tossed into the machine before you close the door with no concern about the soap dispenser at all, and they work better than any powder or liquid alone.

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 dipenser


Try this... Wipe out the soap dish with white vinegar and a soft cloth.. make sure you get everything off the edges of the door and look for any nicks, blemishes or deformation of the dispenser door to make sure it is not mechanically binding up when it is cycled open. If Ok.. then.. clean your drain filter.. then.. start a wash cycle using the hottest setting ( without any dishes) .. and after about 10 minutes or so.. stop the process and open the door and add in 2 cups of white vinegar.. Let it complete the wash cycle.. When complete..try running a dishless cycle on any setting with detergent ( use about 1/3 less than you usually use) and see if that dispense adequately. If that works, then the next time you load the washer. make sure you don't have anything up against or limiting the door from opening. Hope this helps..
