Use liquid soap ...those tablets are less messy but they don't work very well ....and make sure to use a dry agent like "jet dry"

Soap dispenser opens, but detergent doesn't disolve and runs down front of door. Have tried several different detergents with no result.


You may have a hot water problem. The water when hot will disolve
the soap or detergent. The dishwasher hasits own heater to heat
the water entering the dishwasher. Check the electrical connections
below the dishwasher to make sure your heater is working. It may be just
a loose connection.
If this is not the case, then a service repait man will need to be called,
to determine why it is not heating the water.

Soap tablets are not disolving in the drawer?


Unlike a dishwasher the drawer on a washing machine is for soap powder or liquid. Tablets won't dissolve in the drawer you need to put them in the drum if at all.

It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.

Soap dispenser is not releasing and the water is not disolving the soap; thus the dishes are not getting clean


if you are using tablets as opposed to liquid then just put them in cutlery basket at beginning of cycle wash result will still be the same, probably wax valve has failed these do go often and will need new dispenser or wax valve service engineer will need to change

The soap isn't fully disolving and the dishes on the top rack are looking like they haven't been touched.


Make sure your water temp is 140 degrees
make sure to use only FINISH Tablets
make sure the telescoping arm in the center of the dishwasher lifts fully and drops under it's own weight
make sure the wash arm on the bottom of the tub spins freely.

My Maytag neptune washer has a bad odor that seems to be transfering to the clothes. What can cause this and how do I correct it.


on the front load machines there is a large rubber door boot which gets built up with soap scum. always leave the door open a little bit when the wash day is done. there is a product available called "Afresh". it comes in a pkg with 3 tablets. if the odor is strong follow the directions and use all three tablets. then for maintenance use one tablet a month in an empty machine. what also helps is to make sure you do at least one hot water only wash per month, this helps to disolve all the soap that gets built up in the dispenser tubes and drain hoses etc. hope this helps.

Powdered dishwasher detergent stays stuck in dispenser after wash


There is a rather delicate mechanism which controls that soap door. Often this is the first part of a dishwasher to cause trouble. Instead of using the powdered detergent in the soap holder just pour the measured amount into the floor of the machine.

Once you have used up the powder, you might wish to consider a tablet which also just gets tossed.

Tablet falls to the bottom of tub but wont disolve


The newer Whirlpool dishwashers have little slots in the top of the soap dispenser to allow water to seep in during the first water fill. This design allows the tablet to begin to dissolve during the first fill then be usefull when the soap door opens. In your case, I would check to see if the soap dish is opening at all. Perhaps one of the racks are not allowing clearance or the soap door itself is sticking closed.

Let the dishwasher fill, drain, and then fill again. Open the door of the dishwasher and see if the soap door is still closed and if so, there is your problem. Also, at this time, check the water temperature. It should be at least 120 degrees F for the soap to be effective.

Hope this helps, Ken

Dispenser door


Remove the outer door panel and check the actuator for the soap dispenser door it is probably broken. You might also check and make sure you don't have an old soap build up inside the soap dispenser. Sometimes old soap builds up and dries inside the dispenser and causes the door to stick. It should be free. Good luck.
