Soap door opens during cycle, but soap does not dispense??


Hello Eric, thank you for your post!

I understand that the dispenser on your Frigidaire dishwasher opens but the soap is not dispensing into your dishwasher. How old is your dishwasher soap? If it is around a year old you may need to discard it and use a new soap. Also check to make sure when you stack dishes that they are not obstructing the arms from reaching the dispenser. Make sure your spray arms are clear of any debris that could block the distribution of water inside of your dishwasher. You may need to connect with a professional technician for proper repairs if these steps do not correct your issues. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

I have a Frigidaire Dishwasher Model # FFBD2411NS0A. It cycles but does not clean AND the soap dispenser does not open during cycle. Im handy but not an electrician. Is this a power issue or.....?


You will need remove the door panel and look at the device directly behind the soap dispenser. It will have 2 wires to it. If the wires look OK and not unplugged, that little device will probably need replaced. Thats what opens the soap cup.

Good afternoon Derek, I appreciate your post!

I understand that you are experiencing an issue with your Frigidaire dishwasher not cleaning and not dispensing soap. This may be a possible issue with your dispenser, water, or soap. I would suggest when you load your dishwasher to make sure no plate or stemware is blocking the dispenser. Also if the water pressure coming into your dishwasher is not between 20-120 PSI it will not provide enough pressure to open the dispenser or dissolve the soap. The water temperature should be above 120 and below 130. If you review all these troubleshooting steps and continue to have issue it could be a possible problem with your spray arms or motor. I would then recommend seeing assistance from a professional. This may help you avoid unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

The soap door does not open during the wash cycle


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...
