Be sure to run kitchen water hot at faucet before starting dishwasher or you will get an entirely cold water washer. Also be sure the jet dry dispenser is not empty. Only use liquid jet dry. Pay no attention if soap says with jet dry. Does not work as well. Hope this helps.

Powdered dishwasher detergent stays stuck in dispenser after wash


There is a rather delicate mechanism which controls that soap door. Often this is the first part of a dishwasher to cause trouble. Instead of using the powdered detergent in the soap holder just pour the measured amount into the floor of the machine.

Once you have used up the powder, you might wish to consider a tablet which also just gets tossed.

Liquid soap mistakenly used - bubble explosion


Fill the detergent cup with fabric softener for a full cycle. Don't be alarmed if bubbles seep out.

Finish off with a white vinegar wipedown of the insides if it still feels soapy.

The soap fails to disolve!


Having the dishwasher powder failing to dissolve is a far more common problem recently with the filing economy.  People are trying to save money by buying generic dishwasher powder rather than brand name products.  The ultra-cheap products fail to dissolve because their ingredients include bulk fillers with minerals, etc.
It is possible that the dispenser is failing to open, but that is a generally rare problem except on very, very old dishwashers. Before deciding the dishwasher has failed, go buy a box of brand name (Electrosol or Cascade) dishwasher detergent powder and only use it.
Please report back your results here, OK?  Good Luck!

Soap not disolving


is it liquid or powder? we had this problem with cascade powder.... tried liquid cascade and the same thing happened even though i'd been using cascade for YEARS.... manual said could be detergent was "old" and beyond its shelf-life, or that we used too much or too little (go figure that one out LOL).... not trying to promote a brand here, but we switched to palmolive ECO gel and haven't had a problem since -- no goop left in dispenser!.... hope that helps... -cynthia :)
