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...

I have a quiet partner ii the soap dispenser door will not stay shut, how cab I fix it?


I have the same dishwasher, and have a problem with it shutting when soap cakes up on it. Have you tried scraping the latch door area? Once I cleaned out all the scale it shut better and when I close it, I push gently on the door and help the latch shut. It still opens fine during the cycle and the soap is gone.
