There may be hardened soap caked in the works that must be dug out. If that doesn't work, the soap dispenser must be replaced.

My Asko D1716 dishwasher works fine apart from the soap dispenser. It won't open to release the soap.


Most likely it's a corroded door catch or a bad solenoid. Hopefully it's not the main control board. You'll need a repair manual or technician. A work around would be to use detergent tablets in the compartment

Initially the soap dish had residual detergent (cascade packets) but now the detergent door won't open during cycle


probably needs a new spring. you can order a whole new door with spring easier, just search google for appliance parts

The detergent packet doesn't dissolve. The dishwasher seems to go through the cycles ... the dishes are wet. However I find the detergent packet in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Hello- Water flow, temperature, and pressure inside determine whether this little packet will dissolve.  Sump blockages or pump /motor weakness both effect amount water spraying inside. Some of these packets don't dissolve in time to enter wash water. Start by using powder or gel again. If it still leaves soap residue, other pump/motor issues exist. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. Thanks- ED

It leaks very sudsy water all over my floor through the door. I think it is clogged and not draining properly.


very sudsy? 'automatic' dishwasher soap should not do this. if you are using 'hand' dishwashing soap, use 'automatic' dishwasher soap. if you are using 'automatic' dishwashing soap, try another brand. suds are for people to look at. 'automatic' dishwasher soap should not do this. good luck

The soap packet doesn't dissolve, it remains intact at the bottom of the machine at the end of the cycle.


don,t use those packets stay with powder or liquid dishwasher soap. the packets need a lot of heat to dissolve,.

My soap won't dissolve during the cycle.


You are not getting enough water or you are losing the water during wash cycle. Is you dishwasher new or older? How is it plumbed in? If it is plumbed through the floor you will have to put and air gap in to keep the water in it. All tall tub dishwasher have to be plumbed properly.

Soap packets don't melt/disolve


sounds as if you amy have a problem with the dispensor door not opening correctly perhaps opening at end of cycle when all water is already released.Ive seen that sometimes the "tabs" or "packets of detegent are too tall and interfere with normal opening of the latch mechanism. manufacture would reccommend using powder instead.

Soap Dispencer Doesn't Always Open


We are having the same issue with a new dishwasher. One solution is to leave the soap dispenser box open when you close the door. This will at least get soap in the washer.
