Soap Dispencer Doesn't Always Open

More than half the time the soap dispenser will not have opened at the end of the wash. I've tried Cascade crystal soap and packets. Any suggestions?

    Hi, I found the same problem and it always seemed to happen when I placed the taller items in front of it. Now, I place the smaller salad plates or bowls infront of that corner and have never had the same problem. Pay attention to whether what you place in front of it is blocking it or not. Good luck

We had the same problem and solved it by putting taller utensils to the extreme right of the basket or in the top shelf

We are having the same issue with a new dishwasher. One solution is to leave the soap dispenser box open when you close the door. This will at least get soap in the washer.

How do you clean the door gasket? It has black stuff on it.


once a month bleach machine out and clean out soap and softner dispenser,so lets start cleaning you are going to need a powerful-pool shock and put 1/4 of the bag in the soap area,you well need to let it soak for 24hrs. cause you have mold in every inch of the machine.Now run the machine on cold water.After machine has gone through all cycles.Open door you may need to clean door seal with a old tooth brush,and you may need to lift seal to check underneath.after seals are clean and dispencer is cleaned were dispencer goes make sure its clean as well. after use always keep door open and dry out dispencer after each use.always use a 1/4 of a cup of clorox2 for HE. and clean machine out this should stop ths problem.

Dishwasher won't access soap tray


Check if the dish rack is reversed. If it is, it'll block the dispenser from opening.
If that is not the case - you may have problems with soap dispencer solenoid or with control board. Unplug the d/w. Disassemble the door, and find the solenoid contacts on the dispenser. Check for continuity. No continuity - replace dispenser.If dispenser is ok, check wiring for continuity. Otherwise it's the board.

I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.

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.
