Question about GE Dishwashers
Using too much soap is worse than not using enough. Over time, soap scum will build up and plug the internal plumbing of the dishwasher. Often, there is simply not enough water in the dishwsher to be effective. The GE uses an electric solonoid which opens when it is time to drain. This item can get corroded and allows water to pump out when it is supposed to be washing. Also, it is possible you are not getting enough water because of supply problems. Disconnect the hot water line and check the flow of water and also the intake screen to see if it is plugged. If you have ample water after the a wash cycle has been running for several minutes, check the water timeperature. It should be around 120 degerrs F.
Hope this helps, Ken

Hello Eric, thank you for your post!
I understand that the dispenser on your Frigidaire dishwasher opens but the soap is not dispensing into your dishwasher. How old is your dishwasher soap? If it is around a year old you may need to discard it and use a new soap. Also check to make sure when you stack dishes that they are not obstructing the arms from reaching the dispenser. Make sure your spray arms are clear of any debris that could block the distribution of water inside of your dishwasher. You may need to connect with a professional technician for proper repairs if these steps do not correct your issues. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
