Why is water sitting in soap dispenser pullout drawer?


Water remaining in soap dispenser. In front loading washers made by LG (some Kenmore too), water may remain filled in the soap dispenser after the wash cycle. This may be caused by the siphon tube being contaminated by detergent residue. To clear it, remove the siphon cover from the tube, and clean them thoroughly, making sure that all residue is removed. Replace the cover and make sure it seats properly all the way down. This will ensure that the siphon starts and continues until the dispenser tray is emptied. A small amount of water, a half inch or less, remaining is normal. There is a video on YouTube that suggests buying a new detergent tray. Try cleaning it first. There are no parts that will break or wear out under normal use.

I put liquid dish soap (not even dishwasher soap) in my rinse aid compartment of my dishwaser...will this hurt the washer? Do I need to get soap out and how?


yes it will foam up unlike you have never seen before
by disassambling the door and removing the risne agent dispenser and very throughly draining the soap it may get all of it out(rinse it with only cold water since hot water promotes sudsing while cold water kills sudsing) if even a few drops remain it will suds like crazy during the rinse cycle (when the agent is dispensed) to remove all suds from the machine fill a cup of white vinegar placed in the upper rack such as if you would drink from it (not upside down) and run the d/w of a normal cycle
a better but unfortunitly more costly solution would be to replace the rinse agent dispenser

GE Harmony top load washer: The soap tray when filled with liquid soap will not properly dispense the soap when the water is filling the machine and the soap tray remains full of water and soap at the end...


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...

After the dishwasher runs there is a lot of soap left in the soap dispenser. I've tried powder and liquid. Liquid is a bit better. I've tried using less soap but there still is a lot left. Also my glasses...


With the LG LDF6810 model, this is not a common problem. Please try the following test, With and empty dishwasher, add a small to normal amount of dry dishwasher powder and run an (empty) load.
Check to see if any soap remains in the dispenser cup.
If any remains, here are three things to do: 1.) Upgrade your dishwasher detergent to a name brand powder (e.g.: Electrosol or Cascade)
2.) When you load the dishwasher, do not place large items in the front, near the door/soap dispenser.
3.) Before you load the dirty dishes for the next several loads, with your hand, turn both the upper and lower wash arms so they point at the door. Load as you normally do and push the racks fully in. Before you close the door, spin both the upper and lower arms and confirm that they spin freely and neither hits anything. if either does not spin freely, pull out the rack and arrange so the arms can spin freely.
I find that the only time I have left over detergent powder is when the wash arms do not spin freely.
This is a common problem on most every energy star/water conserving dishwashers.
Please report back what you find, OK?

Kenmore 90 plus won't fill on regular orpermanent press cycle.


OK, Duh..... I guess there is about a 2 to 3 min. delay for the liquid soap dispenser to fill up and disperse the soap into the washer tub. After that short cycle is complete the fill cycle engages and fills at normal speed.

Dishwasher soap remains in the soap dispenser following the complete cycle. I have had the washer for a year and a half. The first year, no soap remained in the dispenser. Now about 1/8th of the soap...


Try cleaning the soap dispenser with white vinegar so that it is free of all detergent, then try using about 1/4 less detergent than you have been to see if you still have any remaining in the dispenser. Also, make sure your drain filter is free of all sediment so that the system can pump the water out freely. Lastly, if you are still getting some soap remains, then try using a sanitary setting that uses the hottest water and see if the excess soap is properly dispensed. Your water temp may not be getting hot enough so this test should help identofy the solution. Hope this helps !

Soap foam left after dishes are washes. can't dry properly. and always has soapy water left in it and on the washed plates.


Try adding some liquid fabric softener to your dishwasher. This will reduce the foaming. Also make sure there is rinse agent in the proper dispenser, this will reduce the soap sticking to the dishes. Finally, reduce the amount of dishwasher powder or liquid you put in for each wash. If water remains in the bottom of the dishwasher, check if there is a filter or drain hose clogged. Is the dishwasher drain hose connected an undersink garbage disposer? If yes, make sure it is run periodically so it does not clog up.
