Cheaper and easier is to mix a liquid phosphate soap like Cascade with a half gallon of hot water from the tap and pour it in before starting a load.

SOURCE: Soap block not releasing while washing

I urge you to only use Electrosol or Cascade powder with your (or any) dishwasher. Most ultra-cheap powder will not clean effectivly. If the dispenser does not open with the powder inside, a service call is the next step.
If you reply, please tell me the Make and model of your dishwasher.Good Luck!

Soap dispencer leaving aoap behind

Check your water pressure. Remove the soap dispencer drawer, start machine, look inside the soapdispenser. You should see a good strong even spray of water. If not, the water pressure is low. Check water lines going from watertap to machine. Do you have good pressure at the watertap, but not when you connect hose? Check hose.

The soap dispenser in my Speed Queen front load washer does not feed soap to the washing machine. When I press the start button, it immediately starts the wash without first filling with water and getting...

This is usually caused by a low water pressure problem.Water will take the path of least resistance and in this case the soapdispenser suffers. A couple of things to look for are.
  1. Check the water line screens and water valve screens. If these are plugged with debris it will lower your water pressure.
To check this remove the hot andcold fill hoses on the rear of the machine. Look inside of the water valve forand debris there is a screen on the valve to catch this. The machine also camewith inline water screens. Check to see if theses were installed and if theyare plugged and installed properly. These will be inside the fill hoseat either the machine end or the spigot end it depends on who installed them.The proper orientation of this screen is that the pointed end should be facingthe incoming water. 2. Check to see if you have goodwater pressure at the machine hose connections. This is easily done with awater pressure gauge. I purchased one at Home Depot for around $10.00. This ismuch less than a service call. Put the gauge on the water line and turn on thevalve. Then turn on any faucets or appliances that feed from the same line andsee what the pressure is. The installation manual that came with your machinewill have the water pressure spec on it.

Soap despenser+will not dispense soap.

Hi. WHen a soap dispenser will not dispense soap it is generally because of one of two things. Either it is clogged or the soap you are dispensing is too thick and needs to be diluted a little with water, or possibly both. J.

Won't dispense soap. Changed batteries twice,

Sometime the viscosity of the soap could be the culprit. If you had changed to a thicker soap sometimes those pumps can't handle it. Try a less viscous soap and lets see what happens. Good Luck PAL

Soap dispenser does not open during wash

Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Remove any dishes in the dishwasher. Unhook the dishwasher's dish trays or racks from their tracks, and set aside. Empty the soap dispenser if it contains unused soap that failed to dispense. Use a wet rag to wipe down the interior of the dishwasher, as well as the inside of the dispenser.
2. Close the dispenser, and shut the dishwasher door. Turn the dishwasher on to a manual setting, then stop it and open the appliance. Check to see if the dispenser is open. If it is, continue to Step 2. If the dispenser is closed, skip to Step 4.

3. Switch dishwasher soap. Some dishwasher dispensers have difficulty with dry or liquid dishwashing soap, depending on the make and model of your dishwasher. Incompatibilities typically result in the dispenser sticking shut, which explains why the dispenser opens when empty. Switch to liquid soap if you are using dry powder soap, or vice versa.

4. Check the dishwasher soap dispenser's spring. The spring is located behind the dispenser top's hinge. Consult your dishwasher's original manufacturer's manual or user guide to find a replacement spring. Pop the old spring out with a screwdriver, and replace with a new spring. This should resolve any issues related to the dispenser failing to open.
Please post comments if you need more help or information..........

Good Luck!!

I have a Simple Human 14 oz sensor Soap Dispenser

This is what I found in the Simplehuman FAQ's. I had to wait about 30 minutes for the light to stop blinking, but it seemed to work for me.

If the pump is unresponsive or the blue light is flashing, fresh batteries should resolve this issue. Please power off the pump completely. Once the pump is turned off, remove the old batteries. Please wait for the pump to reset (until the flashing light stops and preferably letting it rest overnight) before you install the new ones.
