SOURCE: Detergent Fill Dispenser
The dispenser is usually controlled by an actuator of some type. This can consist of a small electric wax motor, switch or mechanical assembly. Some dispensers come equipped with an actuator as one complete assembly, while others have separate components that can be purchased separately. I would need your complete model number (located somewhere along to door opening) to be sure what type you have. I can locate a part number for you and give you some guidance on how to make the repairs yourself, if you wish to pursue this on your own and avoid the cost of a repairman. Post back with comments and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi: I just posted a similar problem, but found a solution. After taking the arm, etc. apart (and verifying no blockages), I thought maybe the lack of water pressure was being caused by the fact that there are TWO holes for the top spray arm (higher and lower rack setting) on my model. ie. that water was being forced out of both holes, causing a drop in water pressure, which was causing the top spray arm to stop spinning. I plugged the unused hole with a wine bottle cork (to keep the water from spraying out the unused hole), and voila, it now works.
I wish all appliance fixes were this easy...!
