The fabric softner is not draining during the cycle


Normally caused by undissolved soap residue. Switch off machine from mains, Remove detergent drawer from washing machine, there might be a small plastic clip that need to be levered by hand before the drawer can come out completely. Soak detergent drawer in a tub of water, rinse under tap and wash thoroughly until all soap residue has been washed away. Replace drawer.

Dishwasher soap lid is not latching. It's free of detergent.


We have the same problem, so I took the door of the dishwasher apart and cleaned it up, reassembled it, and it latched for about a week. Something is worn somewhere, and it's going to be a pain to figure out and replace, so we just bought some powdered dishwasher detergent, and fill the cup and close the door. The water spray will dissolve any that falls out when you close the door, and it does just fine, doesn't leave any residue or undissolved detergent on the dishes, at least with our dishwasher, hope you have the same luck.. If you choose to get it fixed, get an estimate first. Sometimes it's better to just replace, depending on the cost of repair. Hope this helps, good luck.

UNDISSOLVED SOAP RESIDUE AND


I have the same dishwasher and kept having soap still in the dispenser at the end of the wash. Someone mentioned this, but what was happening is that the soap dispenser lid was blocked from fully opening by the top rack. You also typically have large pans in this area, so the water spray is blocked from getting under the half open lid well. I started opening the dishwasher after I heard the dispenser latch release, so the lid could fully open. After that, I had no problem with soap still in the dispenser. I started setting a timer to open and shut the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the wash process (after the latch had released for the 2nd wash cycle), so the soap dispenser lid would be fully open. This was a pain, but it worked. The other thing to be careful of with this dishwasher is to ensure you have pushed the top rack in tight before closing the door. Look at the water connection for the top "spinner" and you will see how the plastic pipe fits up to the supply. If you don't have the rack pushed in tight, you get leakage around the connection and don't get good water spray from the top spinner arms. This can definitely affect the quality of the wash. You mentioned the dispenser lid is open when the cycle is complete, but that is because once you open the door it can fully open.

Soap does not seem to dissolve or clean


Probably a sticky dispenser door. Run for a few times with the dispenser open and put a tablet in the cultery basket

It seem that your DW drain it's water by syphon action. Check if the drain hose is properly installed as a U shape; otherwise the DW can drain itself at any time, leaving the soap undissolved .
