If the dispenser door is opening, then it is working properly. You have some kind of problem during the wash causing the soap to not wash out of thye dispenser. Either the pump is clogged or not pumping for some reason, there is not enough water coming into the unit or it is draining for some reason, or the water is sudsing up for some reason, usually rinse aid leaking into the water.
Start a wash cycle and let it fill completely with water then open the door and see how much water is in the tub. It should be just under the heater.
If it is ok, let it wash a few minutes then check it again to see if there are a lot of suds. If so, there is usually a leak in the dispenser.
Post back and let me know what you find.

Tips for a great answer:
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) 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'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Dishes are not clean if water is hard or when more detergent is used than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results. You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.
