Hello, O.K, now this sounds "obvious" in one way, but I am puzzled. Every time my wife runs the dishwasher, soap foam starts coming out the front. BUT, when I do it, it never does this. Besides the "wife factor", what could possibly cause the soap problem?
Re: Soap and Foam coming out the front during wash
Also, check the rubber boots in the bottom corner of the door jam....I've replaced them on mine and it still leaked out the front. The too much soap may be the problem but with my experience I'll bet it's the rubber boots. I'm getting a new dishwasher because I'm still having problems with them.

How much HE detergent is used can vary from household to household, depending on such factors as water softness level, soil level of clothing, load size, etc. Because excessive suds can cause build up in the machine, leading to decreased cleaning performance, odor and damage to parts, reduce the amount of detergent if sudsing occurs.
How do you know when you have gotten all the soap out?
Try extra rinse and make use of custom program to perform additional rinse.
This may sound ridiculous, and I'm no "expert", but are you starting out with really hot water (i.e. running the faucet at the kitchen sink until hot water comes out)? My wife refuses to do this and she encounters the same problems: dirty dishes and leftover soap. *I* make sure that hot water is readily available to the dishwasher (even though it's *supposed* to heat it for you) and never have either issue.
Sounds like a control or door lock problem. Try resetting you ccu ( computer control) by unplugging the unit for 30 minutes first. If this does not work then you probably have a bad door latch or bad ccu. You should have a technician do this repair. The wrong soap will not cause this problem, although it can eventually cause other problems. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
Symptoms: Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal
operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto
dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of
dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath
Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.
The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many
dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the
dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible
while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often
pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.
During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery
or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some
water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The
soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.
When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly
open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the
lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if
you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear
the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it
opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap
powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside
of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously
there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while
there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door
is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.
