Question about Maytag Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have ordered a new soap dispenser because the lever on the soap door tab broke off. I have the new one, but I'm not sure if I have to take the whole inside panel off or if the dispenser just pops out. There are no screws to take out.

Ge potscrubber 700 dishwasher - the soap dispenser cover is locked and will not open. I have run the dishwasher several times and tried to force it but it will not budge. any suggestions?


Soap dispenser cover will not open until front knob is at 4:30 or 5 o'clock. Turn knob to 5 o'clock and jiggle dispenser cover. If cover still does not open, is detergent caked such that door won't open? If yes, remove caked detergent. If no, disconnect power at breaker. GE repair manual says to remove screws for inner door panel and inspect detergent dispenser mechanism with lever and trip lever for broken or binding parts.

Hello. I have a GE Potscrubber 600 dishwasher. The soap dispenser will not close. This seems to be a common problem. Any help would be great, thank you.


Main detergent cup won't close on GE Potscrubber 700 GSD700.A workaround is to add the additional detergent with rinse aid 18 minutes intothe wash cycle. To repair, switch off power through circuit breaker. Set timerknob to 12 o'clock. If the detergent cup lever spring opens the cup after it isclosed, remove screws on panel that holds detergent cup and remove the panel upand out of door. Remove timer cover by moving it right and pulling up to exposetimer, see photo 1. _1909.jpg If a spring is loose, it can be reattached as follows.Remove two screws that hold timer, then remove timer. Do not remove timer knobfrom front of GSD700 because knob is designed for removal from rear of panel,after the timer is out. If spring attachment point broke off, reinforce it withepoxy (JBKwik), see gray cone upper right of center in photo 2. _1910.jpg After epoxy cures, drill and tap a hole for a metric 3 - 0.5mm-8mm screw (4-40 may also work). Install spring between new screw anddispenser linkage and tighten screw, see photo 3. _1911.jpg Install timer, jiggle knob so it engages timer and securetimer with two screws. Pull dispenser lever down to make sure it moves andsprings back. Replace round switch and cover. Install white cover with leverextended through it. Install cover screws, close soap door, and rotate timer,soap door should open after about 90 degrees of rotation followed by rinse aidactuation.

Soap dispenser cover won't close


It sounds like it may be stuck between cycle steps.(this sometimes happens if the washer is open during a cycle)Try and run it through one full wash cycle as it is.Then check to see if the soap door will close.If not,the lack may be broken

Kenmore Elite soap door problem


Dispenser may be bad. Push the hi-temp button , air -dry, hi-temp, air-dry in that order. All lights will lite up and this will do test cycle of all components. If soap disp opens then soap tab may be the issue. I have had intermittent dispenser issues and they are often hard to solve as other components may be at fault.

Soap dispenser not opening during wash


Most of the time the dispenser unit fails. It has a wax motor syetem and it just fails. Since you have to takethe door apart,I would suggest calling for service.

Good Luck!

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.

Soap dispenser


It sounds like the soap dispenser flap is stuck or the latch is broken. Try to see if it can be manually opened to loosen it. How long do you wait before starting the dishwasher after the soap is placed in the dispenser? Check and see if the cover opens even a little during the wash cycle?

There could be a problem with the solenoid that opens the soap dispenser. I don't know of the part number for this. You'd have to call Bosch or check their website.

Dishwasher soap dispenser sticks


Your soap is clotting because there isn't enough water being sprayed around inside.  The water spray washes the soap out of the dish, if all is working well.  My machine had the same problem.  I had sufficient water level, but the spray head wasn't spinning very well.  I found the end-most hole in the spray bar to be plugged.  It is the end hole that provides a jet that makes the head spin.  I cleaned a bunch of debris out of the hole and the mchine started working and cleaning like it was new.  That was quite an axccomplishment since the machine is 15 years old.

Dishwasher soap door repair


Remove door front panel to gain access to rear of dispenser (inside door)...then you have access to some linkages to which the trigger clips. You will see which to unclip. Spring is just clipped into position and dispenser door snapped back in! Good luck! Oshie
