Question about Roper 24 in. RUD5750DB Built-in Dishwasher
I just moved to a new apartment where the old tenant left her dishwasher. When washing dishes the soap dispenser will not open to disperse the soap. Therefore leaving me with dishes that are only "cleaned" by hot water. The door is operated by a little roller to open and shut it. The former tenant wasn't a clean person by far. I cleaned it with white vinegar about 3 times and also a cleaner for dishwasher that I got from Walmart. Although I think cleanliness has nothing to do with this problem, what can I do?
The dispenser's unit should be replaced. You can try as well to operate the dishwasher while putting the powder detergent or the tablet on the dishwasher's bottom and if you will get good results, to opereate the machine this way. Good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained
about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain
to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed
them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also
found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess
things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
