Frigidaire affinity soap dispenser doesnt work


Good Morning Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I see that you have a Frigidaire washer and that you are having trouble with the soap dispenser. Is the soap dispenser not dispensing bleach or softener? Is there water left in the dispenser? Are you able to open and/or close the dispenser? Also, may I have your model number please? You can normally locate the serial on the upper front, as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!

Kenmore Elite 665-16959000 dishwasher - soap door


It appears your dispenser wax switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Powdered dishwasher detergent stays stuck in dispenser after wash


There is a rather delicate mechanism which controls that soap door. Often this is the first part of a dishwasher to cause trouble. Instead of using the powdered detergent in the soap holder just pour the measured amount into the floor of the machine.

Once you have used up the powder, you might wish to consider a tablet which also just gets tossed.

SOAP DISPENSING


The soap dispenser is intended for both liquid and powder detergents. If you have a problem with mildew, then you may need to clean it occasionally with bleach water.
