Our dishwasher is not dissolving the soap. Has anyone else had this issue and does anyone know how to fix this problem?


Try using a liquid dishwasher detergent.

Also, if you are using dry detergent (that is not pre-measured in pods, etc.), you may be overfilling the detergent dispenser. When the dry detergent gets wet, it swells and causes the detergent dispenser door to stick.

Fridgidaire pld4375rfc0 detergent dispenser not opening


Hi leeroyf - If the soap is not dispensing all the way out then usually the sprayer arms are not able to reach that area of the unit and door. I recommend making sure that the area is clean of dishes to try to prevent this issue because it sounds like something is blocking it and that the dispenser door is not stuck. Using the correct of amount of soap is also helpful. However, if problem proceeds then I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately since it may be having an issue with the wiring connections to dispenser and control.

The soap dispenser isn't opening all the way. Therefore it leaves a small amount of soap in the chamber after the rinse and dry cycle. How do I fix it?


Hi
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...

Soap dispenser does not open during wash


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Remove any dishes in the dishwasher. Unhook the dishwasher's dish trays or racks from their tracks, and set aside. Empty the soap dispenser if it contains unused soap that failed to dispense. Use a wet rag to wipe down the interior of the dishwasher, as well as the inside of the dispenser.
 
2. Close the dispenser, and shut the dishwasher door. Turn the dishwasher on to a manual setting, then stop it and open the appliance. Check to see if the dispenser is open. If it is, continue to Step 2. If the dispenser is closed, skip to Step 4.

3. Switch dishwasher soap. Some dishwasher dispensers have difficulty with dry or liquid dishwashing soap, depending on the make and model of your dishwasher. Incompatibilities typically result in the dispenser sticking shut, which explains why the dispenser opens when empty. Switch to liquid soap if you are using dry powder soap, or vice versa.

4. Check the dishwasher soap dispenser's spring. The spring is located behind the dispenser top's hinge. Consult your dishwasher's original manufacturer's manual or user guide to find a replacement spring. Pop the old spring out with a screwdriver, and replace with a new spring. This should resolve any issues related to the dispenser failing to open.
Please post comments if you need more help or information..........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

OLD KITCHENAIDE MODEL KDI-20 LEAVES SOAP GRANULES ON DISHES.


I have this same problem, plus the pre-wash soap dispenser doesn't open sometimes even though a service guy replaced that. Could he have replaced just one side and not the other? this dishwasher also has a new motor. sometimes it washes beautifully. but other times it does not. even if both dispensers opened.

Filled the rinse dispenser with liquid soap. how do I rinse this out? So I can use the washer without it sudsing up everywhere?


Hello chystalsbrr
Welcome,


You said you, filled the rinse dispenser with liquid soap. how do I rinse this out? So I can use the washer without it sudsing up everywhere?

You can try by turning off the breaker in the electric box that feeds the dishwasher for 5 minutes and see if when you turn it back on and the washer resets itself, and the soap door opens.
Or push cancel and then rinse and after it is done and goes to the dry cycle stop it and it should be open.

In the use of liquid soap in both a dishwasher and or washing machine you must use less soap. Half that of powder soap.
Or the suds will roll out of your dishwasher on to your floor. And this is not a malfunction on the dishwashers part. NO bad seal or anything!
In a clothes washer it will destroy the seal and bearing in less than 5 years!

Let me know how it goes!
Huuum

Dishsoap stays in soap dispenser


ok, either a spring, trigger prob, on the latch, or a electronic prob. ok so to see if the latch is ok (or not) look closely for soap residue and scum, that may be hindering the latch or spring under. use metho, and warm water to clean this part. secondly go down to a white goods repair place and take your electrical component, button, lights its all one unit, simple unscrew it, i do think you will need a set of torque screws for that tho... anyhow ask the guy to get you a new or second hand one and install it. the timer will run, and the clip will release. good luck!
