Detergent cup not opening on Bosch SHY66C02UC dishwasher

The detergent cup fails to open on my dishwasher. New to dishwasher troubleshooting, so all ideas are welcomed.

    Right--got that far from digging around on the web--what's odd is that I can't seem to find how the soap cup unit actually comes out of the dishwasher housing.

    I've got the door panel off fine. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how the soap dispenser/rinse aid ass'y comes out of the door.

    Any help there?

    Our 2-3 year old Bosch detergent cup also is not opening during wash
    cycle, have already replaced the solenoid and timer, still won't work!
    Can anyone help?

    Same problem. Dishes not getting clean and covered with soap stuff. ICKY!

    We are trying to clean it with a vinegar run and cleaning the accesable soap release mechanism.

    Wifes at wits end.

    HELP

    I have the same problem with my Bosch. Detergent door will not open on any cycle. Previously worked on Quick Wash only. Now will not open at all. Tried Dishwasher Magic cleaner but that did not work either. Any help would be appreciated.

Detergent dispenser problem


Is it new? Even if it was or wasn't, I strongly feel that you probably didn't set something properly. Read the manual it came with, particularly the troubleshooting section. Not a big problem. Let me know how it goes. :)

My detergent dispenser door does not open. It is NOT cloggy inside. Does anyone know if there is a pre-rinse before main-cleaning? I.e if I can just put the detergent into the machine directly? Thanks

The detergent cup can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening at time. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. The detergent cup opened by a bi-metal switch or a wax motor located inside your dishwasher door(behind the detergent cup). If cup's cleaning will not solve the problem, you should replace the bi-metal switch or the wax motor (depend which of them is used in your machine). Another option is just to place the detergent tablet on washer's bottom before starting its cycle. Good luck !
