Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

The dishes aren't getting clean and the majority, if not all of the soap is still in the dispenser cup. The cup door is still in the closed position after running a cycle. If it needs to be cleaned or replaced, how do I do that?

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

Soap tablet not being used,not washing dishes


I will assume a few things as you do not indicate which unit you have.

You have a soap dish with a door that should open at the correct point in the cycle. That is probably not happening. You can tell for sure if the soap dish door is still closed at the end of the cycle.

If the door is still shut then something could be jamming it or it is faulty.

Take a look at the dish door and look for soap residue and dirt etc collected around the hinges and the clip holding the door shut. Clean it out.

Open and close the door by hand a few times to ensure it operates freely.

No Go ?

The timer tells the door when to open and close. If the door is faulty or the timer is not sending the signal then the soap will not dispense.

To test the soap disperser you would open the door and move the timer to the position where the soap should be dispensed. Then put a test light across the terminals on the dispenser to see if it is getting a signal. If there is power then the disperser is faulty. It now power the timer is faulty. You would replace the part accordingly.

It is hard to explain in detail how to do the test as I don't know the exact unit.

Short term solution until you get it properly fixed is to use the puck or dissolving package type cleaner. Just put it in the bottom of the machine at the start or open the door mid cycle (unit stops when you open the door) and toss it in. It will work for now.

Hope this helps you with some direction. Please rate this answer if it helps you get started.

The dishwasher will clean best if you use a name brand powder. As you look at the inside of the door of your dishwasher, you should find some sort of dispenser cup or tray, with a lidd that closes some how.

You do not need to fill the cup(s) full of powder to get clean dishes.

Also, you should have a rinse aid dispenser that should be refilled fairly often.

Soap dipenser


Try this... Wipe out the soap dish with white vinegar and a soft cloth.. make sure you get everything off the edges of the door and look for any nicks, blemishes or deformation of the dispenser door to make sure it is not mechanically binding up when it is cycled open. If Ok.. then.. clean your drain filter.. then.. start a wash cycle using the hottest setting ( without any dishes) .. and after about 10 minutes or so.. stop the process and open the door and add in 2 cups of white vinegar.. Let it complete the wash cycle.. When complete..try running a dishless cycle on any setting with detergent ( use about 1/3 less than you usually use) and see if that dispense adequately. If that works, then the next time you load the washer. make sure you don't have anything up against or limiting the door from opening. Hope this helps..

Dishsoap stays in soap dispenser


ok, either a spring, trigger prob, on the latch, or a electronic prob. ok so to see if the latch is ok (or not) look closely for soap residue and scum, that may be hindering the latch or spring under. use metho, and warm water to clean this part. secondly go down to a white goods repair place and take your electrical component, button, lights its all one unit, simple unscrew it, i do think you will need a set of torque screws for that tho... anyhow ask the guy to get you a new or second hand one and install it. the timer will run, and the clip will release. good luck!
