Lsoap dispensor wont open during wash cicle


Hi! Most washing machines have some safety regulations that include opening the soap dispensor, this is why you should put the sufficient amount of soap before the process begins. There's nothing wrong or broken to your dishwasher, this is how these machines are made. I hope this will clear your problem. Have a nice day!

Does the soap dispenser open automatically during the wash cycle, ours doesn't open and the dishes aren't getting clean.


does the cycle complete?. if it does and your dispensor is not open, then your dispensor is faulty. try opening it by hand, remove old powder, refill with 2 tablespoons of powder,select fast programme and see how you go. if your cycle is not completing then let us know what it is doing instead.

Do you have to use the automatic detergent dispenser on the maytag atlantis? Or can I just add detergent to the tub myself when starting a load?


Formerly Maytag Service:
It is actually better for your machine to add the soap directly to the tub, during your fill cycle, than it is to use the dispensor.
Just ensure that your soap or detergentg is color safe, so that direct contact will not damgae your cloths.
Thats the only reason the dispensor was ever made,
so that the soap could be dilutted before contact with fabric
hope this helps

Soap packets don't melt/disolve


sounds as if you amy have a problem with the dispensor door not opening correctly perhaps opening at end of cycle when all water is already released.Ive seen that sometimes the "tabs" or "packets of detegent are too tall and interfere with normal opening of the latch mechanism. manufacture would reccommend using powder instead.

Soap Dispensor does NOT open.


This is almost always a dispenser problem. The dispenser is replaced as a unit. you can reach it by removing the Phillips screws around the inside of the door and lifting up the inner door panel. The dispenser's frame is held in place with tiny (1/8 in or 5.5mm) screws.

Soap dispenser door doesn't open during cycle of my Maytag dishwasher


Kqon, looks like your dispenser has a wax motor. I think the first thing you have to do is remove the inner door and inspect the soap dispensor assy. See if any of the moving parts are broken. This wax motor is 120V so you can run a cheater cord to it to see if it works, but be very careful when doing this. It will expand the plunger and open the flap. If the wax motor operates with 120V applied to it then you want to see if you have power coming from the timer. It will be the tan wire # 27 on the timer harness. You also want to make sure the spring and pin are in place on the dispenser flap. Your part number for the wax motor is 902899. Catriver.

Poor washing


before you suspect the pump and motor assy, do you hang the silverware basket on the front side of the lower rack or if not did one of the holders for the rack fall off and you replaced it? I have found that id the basket is hung on the rack that tall utensils will hold the door from opening fully. when that happens water from the spray arm will not hit the soap dish and when you open the door you will see soap in it. also there is a plastic peice on the top rack if not installed the correct way it wil hold the dispensor door closed causing the soap to stay. I see this problem all the time. when in the wash cycle do you hear the water spraying around inside? If you do I would not suspect the pump and motor. And with whirlpool the pump and motor is a full assembly and it is disconected from the under side of the washer and removed from the top. also run it empty on a short wash cycle and listen for the dispensor door to pop open. make sure thats working properly to. check all that out and let me know if it helped. good luck
