Question about Bosch 24 in. SHE44C02UC / SHE44C06UC / SHE44C07UC Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher detergent dispenser not working properly. I am using Electrasol Capsules. When was is completed the capsule is disolved in the holder, but not dispensed. P.ease advise. This is my first dishwasher, and if there is something I have done incorrectly or if it is a mechanical problem I'm not sure. Thanks.
Is the cup open or still shut when you open the DW at the end of the cycle? As long as it is open at the end, the cup and its activating mechanism are fine and we would have to look at other avenues. Another thing to check would be is your upper rack adjustable. If it is, try it in the up or higher position, if it is in the down position something could be bent or out of place causing the cup cover to only open slightly.

Quoted from Appliance Repair Clinic
The detergent cup doesn't open When the detergent cup doesn't open, check these:
Bi-metal switch or wax motor
Detergent cup, itself
Timer On many dishwashers, a plastic actuator arm mechanically links the timer to the detergent cup. When the timer reaches the proper time in the cycle, the timer activates a lever that opens the detergent cup. If the linkage is broken or defective, the cup stays closed after you've closed it. Check the link and repair or replace it, as necessary.
Bi-metal switch or wax motor A bi-metal switch is a simple electrical device that deforms when electricity is applied to it. The degree of this deformation can be engineered to concise standards.
The timer energizes the bi-metal switch inside your dishwasher door--directly behind the detergent cup--when the detergent cup should open. When energized, the bi-metal switch deforms away from the detergent cup latch, which opens the detergent cup. If the bi-metal switch is defective, it may not deform enough to open the cup. If that happens, you need to replace it.
On some dishwashers, the bimetal switch is wired through the heating element or motor circuit. If the element is broken (or open), or if the motor is drawing low current because of a low-fill situation, the bi-metal switch doesn't open properly.
Newer dishwasher models use a wax motor instead of a bi-metal switch. It's a sealed unit with wax that heats up and pushes a piston through to open the door. The wax motor, controlled by the timer, mechanically opens the door.
Detergent cup, itself The detergent cup itself can become clogged with old dried detergent that prevents it from opening. Sometimes just cleaning the cup takes care of the problem. If not, you probably need to replace the entire cup assembly
