If the dispenser has soap "crud" around the latch area that could be the cause. Thake a stiff bristle brush and scrub it using a bit of Dawn and water get it clean as possible and try it again. I found that switching to a clear liquid helped me.

My new Samsung dishwasher model DW80F600 sometimes will not eject the detergent capsule. Other times it spits it out at the wrong time, leaving it in the bottom of the washer when it is finished.


That sounds strange. It may be that the dishwasher isn't "spitting it out" at the wrong time (at the end of the cycle), but that maybe there is little or no water getting into the dishwasher, and it just isn't dissolving. Every 4th time is very strange too. You might have a bad electronic controller, but I would say this is a time to call out a professional trouble-shooter/repairman (I recommend calling Sears Service for Samsung dishwasher problems).

Detergent dispenser doesn't open


There is a solenoid in the detergent dispenser that opens at the appropriate time to let the door open and drop detergent. The solenoid might be faulty if the door spring appears alright. One option is to stop using the powder detergent and switch to tablets. One tablet like Finish diamond in the cutlery basket does wonders.
Not sure if you can buy the dispenser to replace.

I have a samsung front loader. water is pouring out of the detergent dispenser when i try to run it.


How come that the water runs in the wrong direction.? Is there any obstruction at end of the dispenser? I know that washing powder has a tendency to clump together at the bottom of the dispencer. The dispenser is correctly put in and there is no obstruction? Kolbrun

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

Why does a lot of detergent remain in the soap dispenser after a washing cycle is complete


Was the dispenser cup wet when you added detergent?
Make sure the dispenser cup is dry before adding powdered detergent. If dispenser cup is wet, the detergent can clump.
Is the cycle incomplete?
If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher.
Is the detergent old?
Older detergent exposed to air will clump and not dissolve well, which will cause the dispenser door to stick to the detergent. Replace detergent if necessary and store the detergent in a tightly closed container in a cool dry place.
Is the water temperature too low?
For best washing and drying results, water should be 120oF (49o C) as it enters the dishwasher.
Were items blocking the dispenser that kept it from opening?
Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser.
Detergent guidelines
  • Use automatic dishwashing detergent only.
  • Other detergents can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing performance.
  • Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
  • Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
  • Add detergents just before starting the cycle.
  • The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent.
  • If you use too little, dishes won't be clean.
  • If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
  • Suggested fill amounts are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using these detergents.
  • Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out your water's hardness by asking your local water department, water softener company, or county extension agent.

Try different detergent types--liquid instead of powder, capsules instead of liquid. Don't put large dishes near the door that might block spray. Check the spray holes in the spray arms for blocking.

Detergent will not dispense


generaly the detergent tray has a "gate" that needs to be moved to the top position for powder. (up for powder, down for liquid). This is the generic answer. if you verify the model number or list the model of your unit I will attempt to locate a users guide for you.

My machine is pumping water out the dispenser door what could be wrong


if you mean that water is coming out via the drawer that you put the powder then:

The powder has become solid in the drawer and blocked off the pipe leading to the drum.

What you need to do is to get boiling water and pour it into the detergant and using the pointy end of a wooden spoon break the sludge free in the pipe and the detergant draw.
