Sometimes those dispensers become defective,, make sure nothin is obstructing it from opening possibly dishes or rack attachments,, if not then u will need to order a new dispenseer assembly if this is a whirlpool built kemore,,,( kenmore just puts there name on aplliances, they dont build them) just to let u know if u didnt know already...

deteremine your model number go to sears online check out there parts and service page and research parts by puttin in your model number and determine the part number for your model ,,,, i believe they vary from 20 to 60 dollars ,, this is somethin you could do just have to get part and seperate the panles by removing the screws all around the inside door.. hope this helps

Small door where soap goes does not open during cycle.


Most detergent cups are spring loaded and released by either a mechanical trip or by a bi-metal strip latch. If your model is a simple dial timer type, look for a mechanical linkage between the timer and detergent cover. If it is a touch panel control, look for the other type. The bi-metal strip type has a heating wire wraped around it that can open electrically or burn out physically.

Mechanical types can be checked by rotating the timer knob 360 degrees while watching the detergent cover linkage. Electrical types require use of an ohm meter to check the resistance of the heating element on the bi-metal strip.

If you are using powder type detergent, make sure it is not caked when added to the cup or it can jam the rotating type covers.

It is leaving soapy taste on dishes


you are using way to much detergent. and it is probably a stainless steel dishwasher. you should run a cup of vinegar on the top rack face up with nothing else in the dishwasher and no more detergent. run the vinegar in the dishwasher 3 times and then only cover the detergent tray a third of the way when washing the dishes.. do not put any detergent in the prewash slot.

Check both arms are spinning freely when you have the machine loaded up normally.
If thats ok you could try powder instead of tabs if they are not disolving correctly

The cover of detergent dispenser does not open..


switch back to using powdered soap, sometimes what happens is hte tablets your using are actually to big for the dispensor door and too much pressure is put againt the actual door so when its triggered to open there too much resistance nad cannot open, sounds silly bu have actually sen it in action. and liquid detergent tends to clog or gunk up hte door spring assy, powdershte best detergent to use for d/w's

The cover of detergent dispenser does not open..


It is most likely the flip spring...you need to be certain that the legs of the spring are inside the door edge and the spring does not swing freely...and there must be tension on the spring so that when the latch releases the door flips...you can also try this with an elastic, put the elastic inside the closed door and up around the drying solution knob, this will let the door flip open showing that the latch does work
