The machine uses a solinoid to release the detergent lid at the appropiate time, This item may be defective in which you will need a service call. A common reason for this problem occurs if the lid is blocked by a item badly loaded in the basket.

How to Clear out dish soap from the jet dry resevoir?


Use a shop vac and suck it all out. Then, spray some Pam-type cooking spray grease into the jet dry reservoir and then, A) start a normal wash cycle and stop it a few minutes after it starts the spray action. Then, open the door and look for suds. B) If you see suds, spray them with Pam spray to knock them down and then C) cancel the wash to drain it out. Repeat ABC until all the suds are gone.

Then, whatever you do, DON'T put dish soap in the jet dry reservoir again!
:)

Good luck

Detergent is still full after 5 washings. I ran it through several cycles and purchased powder to run it and it still will not work


What? The soap lid won't open, or the soap won't dissolve? If the lid is opening, but the soap won't dissolve, then you're not getting proper water flow. Check your wash arms for clogged holes. The other thing to check is the sump area for a clogged food trap or clogged or broken chopper. You might be able to find a video on YouTube that shows you how to do this, otherwise, you should call a professional dishwasher repairman.

Wont drain


Should not be any soap at all. If the soap has small shiny bubbles in it you have an oversuds problem which will cause the pump to cavitate during pump out. After setting for while the soap turns into water until the next wash. Easy fix is use 1/2 cup of liquid fabric softener and run thru complete cycle with heat dry off to dissipate all of the soap residue. Hope this helps.

13 year old daughter put liquid dishwashing soap in the rinse dispenser. Now all dishes come out covered in soap scum. How do I get liquid dishwashing soap out of the rinse dispenser?


Sorry but thats funny!!lol About the easiest way I know to tell you is take a turkey baster or marinade injector & draw as much as you can out of the reservoir,fill it with water & repeat until you get very little foam when putting water in it.Fill with rinse aid & the rest will just have to work its way through.Should be fine after a few wash cycles.

Water in the bleach reservoir after each use


The dispenser door is caked with old soap and not closing all the way. (most likely)

Soap dispensing problems on a kenmore dishwasher elite 577-0


is your soap door open when this happens if it is then make sure there's no water or other liquids in the dispenser from loading the washer one tablespoon of water in there will clump up the soap and it won't drop when it pops open

I had the same issue and you will never beleive the solution.
Steps to follow:
1) run one full cycle with no dishes or soap
2) run one full cycle with a dishwasher cleaner like Jetdry
3) run one full cycle with a gallon of white vinager
4) never put soap in the extra in and only fill the main soap bin half way.

should work fine from here on out, but never fill main bin more then half way when you do dishes. also run the hot water in the sink until the water is very hot before starting the dish washer.
