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:

Timer
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

Is it new? Even if it was or wasn't, I strongly feel that you probably didn't set something properly. Read the manual it came with, particularly the troubleshooting section. Not a big problem. Let me know how it goes. :)

The detergent is not coming out of the dispenser, when I use capsules or powder. What could be wrong?


If the dispenser has soap "crud" around the latch area that could be the cause. Thake a stiff bristle brush and scrub it using a bit of Dawn and water get it clean as possible and try it again. I found that switching to a clear liquid helped me.

Main Control Board


The main control board provides power to nearly every component of the dishwasher including the detergent dispenser. If the dispenser will not actuate the main control board might be defective. You should first check for more common parts. Many times control boards are replaced unnecessarily because the problem was not diagnosed properly.

Our dishwasher is leaking suds from the bottom of the door. It is a Kenmore. Model # 587. 15182402


There should not be suds in the dishwasher. That generally means that someone put dish soap in it instead of dishwasher detergent. To get rid of the suds, buy some Pyzeme capsules (for stomach gas) and cut about 4 of them open and squeeze the contents into the dishwasher, then allow the dishwasher to run a minute before pumping it out. It knocks all the suds down, allowing you to pump out the dishwasher and have no suds left. Use dishwasher detergent from now on and you should not have any further problems.

I recently purchased a insinger 18-5 dishwasher, what type of detergents should I use ??


Follow the steps below to ensure proper dishwasher detergent selection and usage.

Use only powder, liquid or tablet detergent designed specifically for automatic dishwashers. Any other types may cause a sudsing and as a result, poor wash performance and possibly suds and water on your kitchen floor. GE recommends either Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® detergents.


Use the right amount of detergent for the job. Soft hot water requires less detergent - perhaps a quarter of a cup in the main cup. Very hard water requires a full main cup and a full open cup to get good wash performance. Conditions between these require judgment. Use enough to get the job done, but don't use more than you need.


Too much detergent in very soft water will cause etching of glassware. This is a permanent clouding of the glass. If you experience this condition, use less detergent.


Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Store the detergent in container away from moisture to prevent lumps. Do not put detergent in the cup until you are ready to run a cycle. If powder detergent gets old or lumpy, throw it out; it will not clean effectively. Liquid detergents do not age.


As a rule of thumb:
Harder water requires more detergent

Cooler water requires more detergent

Softer water requires less detergent

Hotter water requires less detergent

Detergent door does not open, it completes cycle without using the detergent


    Hi,

  1. The most common problem with the detergent doors on KitchenAid dishwashers is that they either don't open during the cycle or open only halfway. Before looking into more complicated repairs, make sure that the door is able to open. Check the seal around the door and the door latch for soap- and food-related gunk, and scrub it off if present. Sometimes this can keep the detergent door from operating properly. Consider switching detergents, as some liquids and pouch-style dish detergents can gum up the detergent dispensers. Also, make sure that there is nothing blocking the detergent door when the dishwashermag-glass_10x10.gif is loaded. Because of the location of the detergent door, a large item such as a cookie sheet or a pan can prevent the door from opening. Run the dishwasher through a cycle without anything placed in front of the detergent dispenser and see if that solves the problem.
  2. Broken Timer
  3. KitchenAid dishwashersmag-glass_10x10.gif rely on an internal timer to complete the wash cycle properly. When this timer malfunctions, certain steps in the wash process (such as the release of soap from the detergent dispenser) can be interrupted. If the dishwasher detergent door is either not opening or appears to be opening late in the cycle, this is likely the mechanical culprit. A broken timer isn't something that's simple to replace without knowledge of dishwasher repair, so it's best to consult a professional if you suspect that this is the problem.
  4. Malfunctioning Door Components
  5. For the detergent door to function properly, all of its mechanical components must be in working order. Older dishwashers' detergent doors rely on a spring-loaded hinge to pop all the way open when the timer gives the signal. If the door doesn't swing all the way open instantly when it's manually released, the spring may need to be replaced for the dispenser to operate properly. If the particular model is newer and does not rely on a spring to open the door, chances are it either uses a wax motor or a bi-metal switch to release the detergent door at the appropriate time. If either of these components is dying, that can mean that the detergent dispenser will not operate properly.

There is soap left at the end of a cycle from the dispenser. It is trailing down the door and standing in a puddle at the bottom of the dishwasher. The soap that is not in the trap door seems to wash...


Try different detergent types--liquid instead of powder, capsules instead of liquid. Don't put large dishes near the door that might block spray. Check the spray holes in the spray arms for blocking.

Squealing noise


The pump motor is beginning to seize up. You may be able to take the dishwasher apart and lubricate the bearings and keep it going for a while, but at some point you will likely have to replace the pump motor assembly.

Detergent accidentally put into rinse dispenser


You need to use something to siphon the detergent out of the dispenser. I have plastic syringes for this type of purpose. You don't use the needle attachment.

If you cannot fit the syringe into the opening, then you may try to use clear plastic tubing to syphon out the detergent.

Once the flow of detergent stops, you should then use warm water to rinse the residue. If you have the syringe, you could use it to force water into the dispenser.

This may take a little time, but it is better than trying to disassemble stuff!

Good Luck
