SOURCE: soap dispenser problem?

Check the water supply. Start cycle then open the door after it fills and check water level and spray action. If everything is soaking wet, there is probablyl a pizza pan blocking the soap tray.

Dispenser door will not open

Hey friend, thank you for the post!

I understand that your soap dispenser door will not open on your Frigidaire dishwasher, LGBD2432LW0A. You could possibly be seeing an issue with soap dispenser not getting water into it to release the soap from dispensing. I would check to make sure there are no dishes blocking or obstructing the soap dispenser. You could also remove the soap dispenser to clean it and make sure there is no buildup of any previous detergent remaining that would cause the door to not open. If those steps do not solve the issue it could be a problem with the dispenser and I would recommend having a tech come out to the home to properly diagnose and repair the dishwasher. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Rinse agent not dispensing

Hi I will try and explain how it works , if you look at the cover for the rinse it has small slots on it as the water splashes around inside it and this makes the agent come out if this cover is blocked or dirty it won't let any come out .. I always tell ever one to use less soap then the box says to use and always use a premium type soap , not the wal-mart brand , think about t if you have to clean your dishes after they are washed then why have a dishwasher ? I always say that is what teenagers are for

if the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms.

Dirty dishes

plugged jets, possible
more likely it is leftover food reminance left in the pump area. and on certain dishwashers it could be a swollen check valve, not allowing the evacuation of the used dirty water.
does your soap dispenser open?

Dirty dishes

If you have a water softener, you should use about half the recommended amount of soap. Never use a wet or paste detergent. As mentioned before, this unit should be under warranty.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes. Casade cleaner not disolved.???

Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
