SOURCE: Soap Dispenser Problem with Kenmore Elite Dishwasher

its possible to have a faulty dispenser, but i would look for other reasons first. Im a big powder user and proponent. powder just breaks down better in hot water.Have found that by using the tabs(whoch im sure the gel packs could give same issue) that they dont really fitting the dispenser as well they're a little tight to close the door and the spring action of the dispenser is sometimes not enough with te extra pressure from the tablets.also ck to make sure youre loading it correctly and nothing is blocking the water form spraying into the cup fully emptying it

SOURCE: kenmore front load washer is leaking water from soap

We had a similar problem with water coming out of the soap dispenser when the washer was run. I assumed that it was a problem with the water draining as everyone else posted here. I took off the front panel, got rid of the junk and drained it. Although this was great, it did not solve the original problem. It turns out that there was a sock stuck in between where the water comes out of the soap dispenser and in to the main compartment. Pulled it out with a needle nose plier and good to go. Thanks to everyone for their input here.

Water leaks out of the soap dispenser of my kenmore elite front loader and all the soap or bleach us not out


The 1st thing to try is to take out the dispenser ,there is a little piece that you will push down and then pull the entire assembly out, rinse it out with hot water ,most likely there is a build up in the dispenser,there after use only powder detergent, and no more then 1 tbs ,and any other stuff IE bleach ,fabric softener,use 1/2 the amount and dilute it with water.

The soap remains inside the dispenser, thus door opens up, but soap remains inside....just drips down the door.


What you have is a faulty cycle timer. Replace this and your dispenser will dispense the soap when prompted.

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher 630 1630 9400 Soap Dispenser Problem


From your description even when the soap dispenser opens it is opening late which is why all the soap does not dissolve.

Try adding only half as much soap and see if it opens then - even a little spilled soap catching on that little latch mechanism can cause it to be difficult to close and stick opening.

Also make sure that the spring that controls the door is not broken.

Kenmore Elite soap door problem


Dispenser may be bad. Push the hi-temp button , air -dry, hi-temp, air-dry in that order. All lights will lite up and this will do test cycle of all components. If soap disp opens then soap tab may be the issue. I have had intermittent dispenser issues and they are often hard to solve as other components may be at fault.

Kenmore He3t soap dispenser divider missing


You can find a replacement divider at searspartdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Dispenser" heading on the next page for item number 24 (part number 8181730). There's an excellent exploded view parts diagram to refer to for ease of component identification. I hope this is what you were looking for.
