Question about Kenmore 15762 Dishwasher
The soap dispenser on my Kenmore Quiet Supreme has cracked completely in half and now won't either close or shut (just remains halfway between fill cups). Have tried to glue it back together with little success. Where can I get another dispenser cover (and/or what is the part #). Thanks!!!
Go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number found on the inner tub or inner door side, then search for the part(s) you need. You will need to remove the outer door panel to replace the dispenser assy, make sure you do with the power off.

Tips for a great answer:
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...
