Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB9150A Built-in Dishwasher
I have a Maytag MDB9150 Dishwasher. The soap dispenser door does not open during wash cycles. I removed the inside of the door panel to inspect the back side of the dispenser. Mechanical lever linkage seems to be working fine. The wax motor had a zero reading on my ohms meter so I replaced it. With new motor installed, door still does not open. What's my next thing to check?
The plastic lock of the soap dispenser in side the dish washer door is broken

Tips for a great answer:
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...
