This is usually caused by the soap creating a bond to the door and not allowing it to open when it should. You can resolve this by thoroughly cleaning the soap dispenser and not overfilling it. If this does not work, then you may want to see if the switch timer is faulty that tells the door when to open.

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.

Why does a lot of detergent remain in the soap dispenser after a washing cycle is complete


Was the dispenser cup wet when you added detergent?
Make sure the dispenser cup is dry before adding powdered detergent. If dispenser cup is wet, the detergent can clump.
Is the cycle incomplete?
If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher.
Is the detergent old?
Older detergent exposed to air will clump and not dissolve well, which will cause the dispenser door to stick to the detergent. Replace detergent if necessary and store the detergent in a tightly closed container in a cool dry place.
Is the water temperature too low?
For best washing and drying results, water should be 120oF (49o C) as it enters the dishwasher.
Were items blocking the dispenser that kept it from opening?
Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser.
Detergent guidelines
  • Use automatic dishwashing detergent only.
  • Other detergents can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing performance.
  • Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
  • Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
  • Add detergents just before starting the cycle.
  • The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent.
  • If you use too little, dishes won't be clean.
  • If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
  • Suggested fill amounts are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using these detergents.
  • Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out your water's hardness by asking your local water department, water softener company, or county extension agent.

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 !

Just pull out the dispenser quickly. May be a bit hard to get out.
