Should be easy to check the spring. When the door is open does the dispenser door spring back? If not it may just be that the spring has come loose. Disconnect the power. Most dishwashers have screws down the door sides to remove the front panel. Gently remove it and check the spring hasn't just come off the dispenser

My kenmore he2 wont dispence the soap in the soap dispencer


Evening to you
Allow the washer to start a cycle and have the dispenser drawer ajar and observe through which dispenser the water goes.
Does the first stream go through the pre-wash dispencer,secondly notice where the main stream goes and lastly where the softener would go. If this can help you in any way just put use the dispencers as fits the washing.
goodluck

The soap dose not dispence


Hi

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) Maytag dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it
