Question about KitchenAid KUDC25CH Dishwasher
Hi, During the Soak & Scrub cycle I notice that on the third wash when the detergent dispenser door open the unit does not fill with water but just runs the cyle without water and although the cycle completes it has just left the detergent in the unit. This also seems to happen on other cycles where the water does not fill. It seems like if I let the machine sit for a while and then restart the water then fills. Any thoughts on what to do? Thanks, Dean

Behind the dispensor door there is a small selanoid you will need to replace this, test to see if its open circuit, alternatively you can just place the detergent in side the machine before you put it on a wash cycle is this would have the same effect. the only cycle you can not do this on is the one with the prewash, I think its number 1.

SOURCE: Detergent Fill Dispenser
The dispenser is usually controlled by an actuator of some type. This can consist of a small electric wax motor, switch or mechanical assembly. Some dispensers come equipped with an actuator as one complete assembly, while others have separate components that can be purchased separately. I would need your complete model number (located somewhere along to door opening) to be sure what type you have. I can locate a part number for you and give you some guidance on how to make the repairs yourself, if you wish to pursue this on your own and avoid the cost of a repairman. Post back with comments and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi, well you we need to check the ribbon cable in the door lining to make sure that none of the cables have been broken with the movement of the door. If they are fine then you should replace the dispenser unit if you are getting 240v to the dispenser solinoid.
Get back if you have further problems...................?

An automatic dishwasher
detergent dispenser door can become stuck for a few different reasons.
Some problems are easy to fix, while some require more work. Repairs
are basically the same no matter what brand of automatic dishwasher you
have, although specific parts might be required. Fortunately, even if
the detergent dispenser needs to be replaced, the problem is not an
emergency. The dishwasher will clean dishes fine even with a stuck
