Question about Dishwashers
The soap door solenoid may have had water leak into it causing it to jam. The solenoid is mounted behind the main door interior panel which must be removed to access the part. Be sure to turn off the power to the machine before working on it. Make sure that the soap door operates freely when unlatched. The solenoid itself, has a metal plunger that is drawn into the coil when it is powered on and that unlatches the soap door. Take the plunger out of the coil and clean any white deposits from it--same with the coil interior. Don't apply oil to anything as it will gum-up the solenoid operation. Hope this helps.
