assuming the dispenser is in the door... maybe take off the front door panel to access the inner workings of the dispeser to see if the spring is worn out or missing. otherwise, try a little WD-40 sprayed onto the hinges or moving parts.

A wax motor controls the opening of the lid. Also a seal that fits around the latch lever may be deteriorating and obstructing the function of the lever. Follow the link below for images and part numbers with cost.

SOURCE: soap dispenser doesn't open

My recommendation is to switch over to a tablet and merely put the tablet on the floor of the dishwasher bypassing the soap holder all together. It should work just fine that way. good luck.

Why will the soap dispenser not open up ?


Does it open by itself during a cycle when there is no tablet inside? Have you changed to a different tablet recently? Some tabs are larger than intended for some machines and so put pressure on the lid and stopping the catch from sliding away and releassing the tab. Or it possible that the solenoid valve that operates the dispensor is faulty, Does the rinse aid still dispense?

Dishwasher won't access soap tray


Check if the dish rack is reversed. If it is, it'll block the dispenser from opening.
If that is not the case - you may have problems with soap dispencer solenoid or with control board. Unplug the d/w. Disassemble the door, and find the solenoid contacts on the dispenser. Check for continuity. No continuity - replace dispenser.If dispenser is ok, check wiring for continuity. Otherwise it's the board.

Soap dispenser does not open on main wash


Water may have run into the dispenser door solenoid core causing it to be sticky. Remove the inner door panel (after shutting power off to the machine by either pulling the plug or turning the circuit breaker off in the house panel) and remove the core mechanism from the solenoid. If the core has a white appearance, water has entered the solenoid. Either replace the solenoid or try cleaning the core piece and the inner coil hole. Don't use any lubricant here as it will make it stick. There should be a bellows-like seal between the two parts that must be in good condition. Hope this helps!

Soap dispenser door doesn't open for the second cycle.


Hi, the soap dispenser has a motor / solenoid which controls the latch that opens the door. This has gone bad and needs to be replaced. It is located inside the dishwasher door panel. Remove the screws around the inside of the door to gain access to the solenoid. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!! Mike

Soap dispenser door doesn't open during cycle of my Maytag dishwasher


Kqon, looks like your dispenser has a wax motor. I think the first thing you have to do is remove the inner door and inspect the soap dispensor assy. See if any of the moving parts are broken. This wax motor is 120V so you can run a cheater cord to it to see if it works, but be very careful when doing this. It will expand the plunger and open the flap. If the wax motor operates with 120V applied to it then you want to see if you have power coming from the timer. It will be the tan wire # 27 on the timer harness. You also want to make sure the spring and pin are in place on the dispenser flap. Your part number for the wax motor is 902899. Catriver.
