Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU30 Built-in Dishwasher
SHU3032 Bosch dishwasher. We replaced a defective actuator for the soap dispenser. However, this did not solve the problem of the dispenser not opening during the wash cycle. Thinking the controller must have been damaged, we replaced it as well. Still doesn't work. The dispenser can be manually triggered. So the problem does seem to be electrical. Not sure where to go from here without a wiring diagram. Any suggestions?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Dishwasher soap dispenser sticks
Mine dishwasher (a Maytag) did this also. At first it was becoming stuck because of the soap. My repair guy cleaned it and I switched to liquid soap and it worked great another 2 years then did it again. That time it was just wore out and had to be replaced. I was told it was no longer available but we found it here http://www.repairclinic.com/and our repair guy installed it. He was amazed because he had even called everywhere.

To remove the Outer Door, open the door and remove the
six T-20 Torx screws located three on each side of the Inner
Stainless Door, Fig. 7-1.
Return the door back to its upright position, and bring the
bottom of the Door Panel out toward you, then slide the top of
the panel down and out from under the Facia Panel, Fig. 7-2.
As the Outer Door is being removed, the left or right Door
Guards may shift or fall out of place, Fig. 7-3.
To reposition them, slide them back in over the hinge, Fig. 7-4,
lining up the door guard square tab with the hinge lever
Please note: Door Guards must be in place before
reinstalling the Door Panel. Door Guards are
not used on SHI or SHV models.
Once the Outer Door has been removed the following components become visible.
1. Dispenser Assembly
2. Condensation Tube
3. Upper Wiring Harness
4. Door Guards
5. Door Seal
6. Bituminious Insulation
7. Cloth Fiber Insulation
Also note the Toe Kick, item 8, and the Toe Kick Mounting Screws, item 9.
The Dispenser Assembly operates via a PTC
Actuator (wax motor), item 1.
When voltage is applied to the Actuator it
advances a Combination Lever, item 2.
The Combination Lever allows the Soap Door to open,
and later in the cycle dispenses the Rinse Agent.
To remove the Actuator, first disconnect the
Wiring Connector. Then, using a small
screwdriver, release the locking tab….
…and bring the Actuator out from the Dispenser.
Please note: The Combination Lever cannot be
replaced individually, but only as
part of a new Dispenser Assembly.
