Siemens full-integrated Dishwasher SE65E330EU: Dispenser cup opens after 10 sec

Suddenly above mentioned machine start to open dispenser cup after 10 sec after started instead of number of minutes. Even more when cycle is ended (lamp END light) dispenser could not be closed manually . Only after switching it off - dispenser cup could be closed. My understanding that control unit puts voltage to vax (or bimet) engine immediatly after powered on, but not according to the cycle. Does it mean control unit is dead ? Any advices

    I remove the door cover and saw with my eyes how the wax engine start to move immediatly after machine is powered .

  • thank you

If you are using a quick wash the dispenser will open to release detergent shortly after the wash has begun.

The wax motor should cycle twice for any given wash. The first is to release the detergent and the second is to release the rinse agent.

If you do not see the wax motor cycle hapening twice than the condition that you are describing does indicate that there may be a fault with the control panel. Specifically there may be constant power to the wax motor part of the circuit(older models use a relay(inside of the control box) for the control and would sometimes get stuck).

    NOTE: You can only see the wax motor moving with the door panel removed. Be careful there is live circuits under the door panel.

Dishwasher dispenser will not open. I've been using the detergent tablets and am wondering if I should be using a liquid or powder instead?


Try starting a cycle without using detergent at all. If the dispenser opens, you just need to use powder detergent because the tablets are too big for the dispenser. If it still doesn't work, replace the dispenser. Go to the link to see how to take the door apart and replace the dispenser.

Do not know how to add dishwashing liquid to machine


Fill your clean, dry dispenser cup with detergent and close it.The water streams through the closed dispenser and comes out at the bottom of the dispenser. Make sure you have 120 deg f water coming to the dishdrawer and never put anything in that dishwasher that is to tall or comes up above the drawer when you start the dishwasher it has a lid that comes down and if it does not seal you will get an f1 code and it will require a tech.

Dishwasher leaves soap in dispenser.


Hi Dirty Dish gang.
After having 2 appliance repairmen here, I now have the latest scoop on our dishwasher problems, $200 later!
Los Angeles IS currently having hard water issues. Also, all the new cleaning gels etc. are actually a cause of our dishwasher problems.  
So, here is what we need to do:
1. Use Cascade POWDER detergent only.  Make sure is is just "plain" no "scented" or "complete"  or gel, etc. (I have tried a phosphate free powder and gel and this is a cause of our problem as well!) 2. Use Jet Dry in the dispenser (set it to a 2-3 opening) 3. Make sure water is at least 120 degrees 4. Only run dishwasher on "normal" setting.  All others just run it longer, hence causing more water stains. 5. Do not pre-wash dishes! You can knock of chunks with a "non" soapy brush, but don't rinse (the oils actually help to clean the dishes) 6.  Do not wash sponges in dishwasher.
Acid Wash: The repairman just gave my washer an Acid Wash today. It says it is an acid derived from lemon, I got mine from Carters appliance in Torrance, CA for about $19. I am to run a normal cycle with the above mentioned Cascade after this "acid cycle" is finished.
If you are still having problems:
Monthly maintenance: Glass Magic: Buy a box of Glass Magic (near the Cascade)  Use 1 Tbsb in main detergent compartment of dishwasher along with the Cascade, till washer starts working again. White Vinegar: You can run an empty dishwasher with white vinegar once a month.  Fill a bowl with 2 cups vinegar and place on bottom rack.  Then run as a normal cycle...this allows vinegar to disperse slowly.
So far it seems to be working.  Good luck.

Soap dispenser flap not opening


Not a solution but exactly the same problem. I should have sent the machine back (I bought mine about 2008 too) but by now, 2010, the machine is a complete waste of time and money. The soap dispenser fails to open every time, wasting money, water and my patience because I then have to hand wash after all. will try the suggested oil trick, but it was obviously a bad design to start with.
