Hello. Some dishwashers have a fairly simple soap dispenser, while others have a complex one with linkage, and bimetal strips. That said, I want you to begin by thoroughly cleaning your cup with very hot water and a toothbrush so that you remove every trace of old detergent. The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. If not, you probably need to replace the entire cup assembly

How do I open the soap dispensor for the Brighton Proffesional hands free?


pull it open from the top... squeeze the top sides of the lighter part and pull it down like a drawbridge. If they installed it correctly, it wont rip off the wall.

Lsoap dispensor wont open during wash cicle


Hi! Most washing machines have some safety regulations that include opening the soap dispensor, this is why you should put the sufficient amount of soap before the process begins. There's nothing wrong or broken to your dishwasher, this is how these machines are made. I hope this will clear your problem. Have a nice day!

Soap not dissolving. Dishes aren't clean. All else seems to operate ok - water is hot, sounds like it is working as normal, all filters appear clean, but not washing effectively.


is the soap dispensing door opening? there is a small switch which sometimes likes to fly south makeing the door not open on the soap dispenser when this happens you would need to replace the soap dispenser assembly or if your able to find the switch that is on the dispensor and the part is actually sold seperately from the dispensor then you would replace that switch. you would need to take the screws off on the inside of the door and seperate the two panels the outter from the inner the inner panel is the one that houses the soap dispenser. You can do a continuity test with the unit unplugged to assure that the switch is working properly. if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations Thanks Rick,

Does the soap dispenser open automatically during the wash cycle, ours doesn't open and the dishes aren't getting clean.


does the cycle complete?. if it does and your dispensor is not open, then your dispensor is faulty. try opening it by hand, remove old powder, refill with 2 tablespoons of powder,select fast programme and see how you go. if your cycle is not completing then let us know what it is doing instead.

Soap dispensor will not click shut


Your dishwasher, although a Kenmore, was made by GE. Dispensers have been a big issue for them in the past; they actually redesigned them quite a bit 3 to 4 years ago. Is it the kind that slides across to lock in place, or does it fold over like a clamshell? Often there is a little spring that holds the lip in place, and it can easily wear out, allowing dispenser to pop open easily. I would check http://www.searspartsdirect.com for technical information, or possibly go to the http://geappliances.com website to see if they can give more information.

Soap Dispensor does NOT open.


This is almost always a dispenser problem. The dispenser is replaced as a unit. you can reach it by removing the Phillips screws around the inside of the door and lifting up the inner door panel. The dispenser's frame is held in place with tiny (1/8 in or 5.5mm) screws.

Poor washing


before you suspect the pump and motor assy, do you hang the silverware basket on the front side of the lower rack or if not did one of the holders for the rack fall off and you replaced it? I have found that id the basket is hung on the rack that tall utensils will hold the door from opening fully. when that happens water from the spray arm will not hit the soap dish and when you open the door you will see soap in it. also there is a plastic peice on the top rack if not installed the correct way it wil hold the dispensor door closed causing the soap to stay. I see this problem all the time. when in the wash cycle do you hear the water spraying around inside? If you do I would not suspect the pump and motor. And with whirlpool the pump and motor is a full assembly and it is disconected from the under side of the washer and removed from the top. also run it empty on a short wash cycle and listen for the dispensor door to pop open. make sure thats working properly to. check all that out and let me know if it helped. good luck
