Question about Siemens 24 in. SE53200 Built-In Dishwasher
My siemens dishwasher doesn't open the soap box and the dishes remain dirty.
I can manually open it and close it and the coil seems to be working fine but not when the machine operates.
SOURCE: dishes not clean
water valve under dishwasher that let the water come in is not opening all the way causing either low water level or no water to come into the dishwasher. with out the proper amout of water the soap cant be disolved. replace water val to solve problem

Try the combo liguidgel powder packets and wash on the potscrubber plus setting. We saw a drastic improvement with this setting. I have just about gotten out of the habit of thorough pre-washing, but I do rinse heavily soiled items.

After cleaning the air gap thingy my machine works fine again. This thing sits on the left lower back side of the machine (left when you are standing in front of the machine). It is a transparent plastic box with 3 hoses attached (drain hose from pump, drain hose to the outside and water). Inside the box is a black plastic float. If debris gets caught in there the float gets stuck.
Solution is to remove the part by pulling the 2 drain hoses out (there is a small black clip holding them in) and unclamp and remove the water hose. Rinse and shake the housing until the float moves freely again and reassemble.

SOURCE: soap doesn't dispense
Make sure you do not have a cookie sheet or something tall on the bottom rack that is stopping the soap dispenser from opening. This happened to me and I returned 2 brand new dishwahers back to the store thinking they were faulty until I made this discovery.
