Question about Dishwashers
Yes you should be able to purchase a new combi dispenser and not a new dishwasher. you should be able to find a local whirlpool supplier through the internet. This is provided the unit is not too old for spare parts.
Firstly i would check to see if there is power to the solenoid which releases the soap flap. you would have to remove the outer door panel and you should then see the cables going to the combi dispenser. using a multi meter you can check to see if there is voltage. you can start the unit and watch it go through the cycle. put the unit on a quick wash or short wash and once the unit starts circulating water it should then send the signal (voltage) to release the flap as the next stage is to heat the water. if you get voltage and the flap doesn't open it must be a mechanical problem like the flap is stuck. if you don't get voltage at all during the cycle then the electronic unit is probably faulty.
Hope this helps

You can switch to tablets which you just place in the machine and not in the soap dish, or you can get a replacement part. If your machine is more than three years old I recommend replacement over repair. Joe
