Dispensing tray is not opening at right time in cleaning cycle
When the wash has finished the powder is still inside the machine and has not been used up properly, meaning that the dishes are not clean, so it looks like the dispensing tray is not opening early enough in the cycle

Re: dispensing tray is not opening at right time in...
Unlikely to be dispensor opening at the wrong time. the powder is washed out by water squirting from angled jets at the end of the spray arm. check no blockage in spray arm - sometimes difficult to see. you may find also that the spray arms are not rotating for the same reason

The softner is siphoned out by water effectively overflowing the area that you put it in. The tube is quite small, so it easily gets clogged with spilled powder. If you can take it out and separate it, tunr it upside down for a good clean too. You can get the effect by overfilling from the tap and the try should slowly empty.
Alternatively, you may not be sending water to the tray, so blocked nozzle (powder again) or stuck valve.
The 2 probs could be related.
The first you need to do is remove the dispenser drawer, and thoroughly clean every part of it, particularly the conditioner compartment, poke clear all the tubes and apertures you can see,the problem is caused by a blockage.
The smell is related to the fact that the waste pipe is probably connected to your sink waste, you need to remove the pipe and check for partial blockage, or if it goes to an outside sink , then you need to get some kind of drain cleaner to pour down the sink..
Also , at least once every 6 weeks do a hot wash with powder, but no clothes in, this helps to keep the m/c clean and prevent build up mould and dirt inside the m/c..
Clean the door seal regularly, when you finish a wash.and leave door open and dry it
This should help disperse the smell.

Is water left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle?
About two tablespoons of water remaining in the dispenser compartment at the end of the cycle is normal. At the end of the wash cycle, fresh water automatically cleans the dispenser. Check that the cycle is complete before opening the dispenser drawer. Is the dispenser drawer clogged?
A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak out. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any leftover detergent or additives that could clog the flow of water through the dispenser. Also, check that the detergent drawer is always completely closed during the cycle. If the drawer is not closed completely, water can leak out onto the floor. Are the additives dispensing too early?
Here are a few things that can cause the additives (detergent, fabric softener or liquid chlorine bleach) to dispense early:
Check that the dispenser is not overfilled. Do not fill past the MAX fill lines on the dispenser. Overfilling can cause early dispensing of liquid chlorine bleach and/or fabric softener.
Check that the detergent separator is in the correct position. For liquid detergent, the separator should be in the front position. For powdered detergent, the separator should be in the rear position. If the separator is in the rear position while you are using liquid detergent, it will dispense immediately, which is not how it is designed to work.
Use powdered HE detergent when using the DELAY WASH option. Liquid detergent may dispense prior to the start of wash.
Are the additives dispensing too late?
The additives will not dispense until the proper time if the DELAY WASH option is selected.
Hi. Assuming the washer has completed the rinse sequence, there is a possibility the dispenser part of the valve could be faulty. I assume that you have put the conditioner in the right compartment of the dispenser.. If all else seems to be o/k, I recmmomend thay you once again thouroughly strip and clean the dispenser..
The other possibility is that the hole where the water comes in at the top of the dispenser is blocked.
You need a stiff piece of wire with a hook on the end and poke each hole that you can see in the top of the dispenser compartment
This should solve the problem
Please leave feeed back.
Symptoms: Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal
operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto
dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of
dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath
Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.
The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many
dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the
dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible
while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often
pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.
During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery
or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some
water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The
soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.
When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly
open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the
lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if
you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear
the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it
opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap
powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside
of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously
there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while
there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door
is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.
Not a solution but exactly the same problem. I should have sent the machine back (I bought mine about 2008 too) but by now, 2010, the machine is a complete waste of time and money. The soap dispenser fails to open every time, wasting money, water and my patience because I then have to hand wash after all. will try the suggested oil trick, but it was obviously a bad design to start with.
If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.
Before taking anything to bits, check you aren't just loading the machine in such a way that something (for us, it's usually a frying pan) is stopping the soap dispenser from springing open all the way.
