Fist what detergent are you useing is it dishwasher detergent and second the dishes wet and stemy how long do you wait after the machine has completed the cycle before opening it

There should be about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the DW. If it is filling but not washing the pump may be bad. That might explain the loud noise (motor bearing). I assume that the detergent cover is opening but no water is being sprayed to dissolve it.

That could have definitely lowered the water pressure enough to slow down the filling of the dishwasher... maybe it was just a fluke. If it keeps happening, you might have to dig deeper to find the gunk...
A Google search for the part number turned up this... the diagram on page 8 shows the parts you will need to inspect... parts 66, 64, and down in the bottom of 14 is where the gunk will collect.

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...
