This is a fairly quick job and is relativly cheap to do

Hello What does the error code A13 represent. The soap dispenser seems Ok. Could it be related to something else. The machine starts up Ok, but about 6 seconds into a cycle A13 flashes up and the...

As you correctly pointed out A13 error is linked to the failure of the detergent dispenser lid operation.

If the lid is not opening at the correct time in the wash cycle, then the detergent will not be getting dispensed.

Either the controller circuit that operates the lid is faulty or the lid solenoid is faulty.

A13 error code

It seems to me that there isn't any problem with the normal washing cycle. The problem you have could be related to your dishwasher's detergant dispenser lid. I reckon that the relevant part isn't functioning normally. You can simply check out the claws placed on the detergant lid. If there is a spring inside, it might be damaged.
