Loud buzz, soap dispenser pops right open

I have a Whirlpool Quite Partner 1 DU1055XTPQ3, just today as soon as I started it there was a very loud buzz and the soap dispenser popped right open instead of waiting a while. This contines - I close the soap dispenser, shut the door and where I press Start or Cancel, there is this extremely loud buzz and the soap dispenser pops open. Buzzing continues and very little water comes in. Spray arms do not move.....

    I Have a Kenmore Ultra Wash (made by Whirlpool I think) and as soon as I press the start button--there is a loud buzz and the soap dispenser pops open. About 20 minutes into the cycle, a loud continuous buzz starts and stays until the dishwasher is done emptying.

Sounds like you have something in the sump/motor. I could lead you through it on a chat session but too much just to type. Let me know if you would like me to do so.

SOURCE: how do i remove the upper spray arm on a whirlpool

There is a screw at bottom of arm. Try turning arm before taking screw out. I believe water pressure turns the arm, so if the arm doe not tur while machine is working then you either have a blockage from pump to arm or pump not working properly.

SOURCE: Whirlpool quiet partner I soap

Hi


Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these.


Hope this helps...

Whirlpool Quite Partner 1 - soap dispenser does not open during


I ran it through a couple of different cycles, when that didn't work I closed & opened it several times then rerun the cycle. It opened on its own. I can only assume it had some kind of build-up.

Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner IV issue with soap dispenser


This happened to me as well. I think I solved the problem. It started when I first lowered the top rack. In doing so, the door doesn't open all the way. It also won't open all the way if your cutlery rack is in the front and you've put large utensils like a spatula. Consequently, detergent dried under the latch and it wouldn't firmly catch. For months I put up with it never emptying completely. The other day I took a tooth brush and very hot water and cleaned under the latch. After, I could feel a difference in the way the latch operated (with greater pop on opening). So far its been doing fine. Hope this helps.

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..
