You need to use something to siphon the detergent out of the dispenser. I have plastic syringes for this type of purpose. You don't use the needle attachment.
If you cannot fit the syringe into the opening, then you may try to use clear plastic tubing to syphon out the detergent.
Once the flow of detergent stops, you should then use warm water to rinse the residue. If you have the syringe, you could use it to force water into the dispenser.
This may take a little time, but it is better than trying to disassemble stuff!

Please run the machine without detergent for 2-3 washes. Also try using a little hot water. Also, don't used cleaner and softener together but add softener on the last rinse.

SOURCE: detergent stays in the dispenser
Clean and dry your dispenser prior to filling with detergent.
Use only fresh detergent.
Do not place anything ie. cookie sheets, cutting boards in the path of the water obstructing the dispenser.
Do not allow anything to fall between the racks and stop the spray arms from turning.
Always turn the hot water on at the sink prior to starting you dishwasher they use less than 2 gallonsof water in the initial cycle and they require 120 deg f water. Unless you have hot water recirculation in your home.
If you have low water volume or low water pressure due to bad impellor or windings in circulation pump. The water volume or pressure will be insuficient to reach the dispenser.

I believe that the instructions for using these 3-in-1 tablets is to place it in the open dish detergent cup, rather than in the closable compartment, since the tablet needs to get doused by a lot of water in oder to fully dissolve and be effective in getting the dishes clean.
Since the tablets are designed to dissolve more slowly, they are able to be used for the entire range of washing cycles. If it's a constant problem and you don's have an open detergent cup below or next to your closed detergent dispenser, just toss it into the bottom of the dishwasher instead.
The reason that the tablet isn't getting dissolved fully is because the door is preventing the tablet from dropping all the way out and the door is shielding the tablet from quite a bit of water spray.
Another option is to take a look at your owners manual for the dishwasher and see if they recommend these all-in-one tablets versus regular powered detergent and liquid rinse aid.
Hope that helps and best regards!

An automatic dishwasher
detergent dispenser door can become stuck for a few different reasons.
Some problems are easy to fix, while some require more work. Repairs
are basically the same no matter what brand of automatic dishwasher you
have, although specific parts might be required. Fortunately, even if
the detergent dispenser needs to be replaced, the problem is not an
emergency. The dishwasher will clean dishes fine even with a stuck
