Hi, with dishwashers, there are two methods that allow the dispenser door to open. 1)With the electronic type, at a certain time in the program, a solonoid will be given the electrical signal to open up the dispenser door. Whereas 2) on various other types.the dispenser door will open on a thermal signal. This signal will only take place if the rotors top and bottom are turning properly. So, remove the top and bottom rotors and carefully clean them so none of the holes are blocked in any way.(If they are equalibrium is not reached and the rotor/s will not turn and will then not disperse hot water onto the dispenser) which in turn will not allow the door to open. Please note, your heater must be in operation for this to work.

The soap dispenser opens but the soap is not dispensed and the dishes do not get cleaned. Can you help?


Make sure that there is nothing blocking the soap door from opening fully when the dishwasher is shut. This happened to me and I also thought that the soap door was opening during the cycle when it actually only partially opened during the wash and then popped open fully when I opened the dishwasher at the end of the cycle. So some, but not all, of the soap was used.

Dishwasher soap dispenser won't open during cycle


I had the same problem with my GE Adora. The dishes were getting cloudy and the soap dispenser would not open. Turns out the hard water deposits were causing the soap dispenser to stick shut. I purchased and used Dishwasher Magic which is a dishwasher cleaner designed to remove limescale, rust and buildup. I used as directed and now my dishes are sparkling and the soap dispenser pops right open.
