Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner IV issue with soap dispenser

It seems my dishwasher soap dispenser is not releasing the dishwasher soap at the appropriate time. When I run the dishwasher and go to unload, there is soap oozing out of the open dispenser. It seems as if it is releasing the soap too late into the cycle? My dishes are spotty and white residue all over them. I have tried both solid powder soap and liquid soap, as well as the little solid soap cubes with Jet Dry. HELP!!!

    Seems that the soap is not getting dispensed properly.  Every time I run a cycle and it finishes, I open the door and half of the (powder) soap is stll caked in the dispenser. Bottom dishes seem to get clean enough, but top rach is always still dirty.

This happened to me as well. I think I solved the problem. It started when I first lowered the top rack. In doing so, the door doesn't open all the way. It also won't open all the way if your cutlery rack is in the front and you've put large utensils like a spatula. Consequently, detergent dried under the latch and it wouldn't firmly catch. For months I put up with it never emptying completely. The other day I took a tooth brush and very hot water and cleaned under the latch. After, I could feel a difference in the way the latch operated (with greater pop on opening). So far its been doing fine. Hope this helps.

I'd check the spray arms it may be there is not enough water or the wataer is not getting where it needs to be to disperse the soap. that is where I'd start.

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

I just bought a brand new dishwasher and the soap dispenser opens but the soap is still in the dispenser clamped up like sand. It doesn't happen every time. The same thing started happening with my old...


Try using the soap tablets instead. The frigidaire units use a small cylinder to actuate
the soap dispenser and if just a little too much soap is used the latch will bind and not
release. Alternatively, make sure the dispenser is only about half to 2/3 full if you need to
use powder detergent. This is a common problem with the frigidaire/ whirlpool/galax/kenmore
models. Hope this is useful.
