Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
AT END OF CYCLE THE DETERGENT IS STILL IN THE CAVITY YOU PUT IT IN AT THE START OF THE CYCLE AND THE DOOR IS OPEN. LOOKS LIKE IT IS LATE OPENING. COULD IT BE THE TIMER.
Run the machine with the cavity closed, but no detergent. see if it is open at the end. if it is, then its probably being overfilled or has enough residual build up on the pivot mechanism that it wont open. also, wash water may be getting to the detergent before it opens and then it cakes up and swells against the cavity door and impedes the normal opening event. you can check for clearance when the cav door is closed.
it is not likely the timer. running it empty will be a good way to know. it is released by an electrical mechanism. if the wires are damaged where they feed through the bottom of the unit into the door, it would be a reason it does not work. otherwise, the mechanism or electromechanical mechanism could be replaced as it is likely many times less expensive than timers. usually.
