My kitchenaid is 20 years old. It worked fine until recently. The detergent holder opens up during use but the dishwashser powder detergent doesn't dissolve as it used to and the dishes don't get clean.

Re: kitchen aid dishwasher
the water does not get into the dishwasher open the dishwasher 3-4
times during cycle, you should see some water at least once, if not - check
water valve, water level float and water pressure.
the pump is
clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated.
Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
motor in main pump is not working - could be caused by something
stuck on the impeller or chopper or could be a problem with the motor
itself or control board. Check if line voltage is coming to the motor
during wash/rinse cycle.

I have a Bosch SMS 4012 works fine till cycle finished. when I turn it off it trips the power safety switch at the switch board. To prevent trips happening I have to switch off at the power point and unplug .The washer is 20 years old and the problem started around 3 months ago.Is it a major problem.
Try reversing the bottom dish rack, it's likely blocking the dispenser door because it's put in the dishwasher incorrectly. Also check if there is anything in the back of the rack preventing it from going all the way in.
I don 't know how to fix the dispenser; however, there is a jet dry product that is sold in stores that is in solid form, you just clip it to the upper rack. I have seen it in Wal-Mart in the detergent aisle.
Sinder...this sounds more like a water temperature issue than anything else. First, turn on your hot tap. If you can't hold your hand under it after it fully heats (over 125)...you should be okay. If not, raise your water temp or use the sani cycle to raise the temp. Change brands of detergent. Salt...I don't think so. You're using detergent...not soap...which would have been affected. Pressure should not be an issue...once the unit is filled, it makes its own pressure recirculating with the wash pump.
