SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: the dishwasher was full of soap suds but most of the water drain

Suds? If you use dishwashing detergent you shouldn't get suds. If a small amount of sink type dish soap is left on a dish before loading it into the dishwasher this can happen. I would use several rinse and drain cycles with the racks and dishes removed until the suds are gone.

Never use any type of liquid dish soap made for sinks. The same thing that makes suds in the sink will make even more in the dish washer.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner IV issue with soap dispenser

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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher soap container spring is broken

I too thought my soap container spring was broken- I filled the dispenser with soap but then couldn't slide the circle back shut.
But then - EUREKA- I set the dishwasher control back into "off" position and lo and behold, I could now close the little round door! Make sure you verify that BEFORE you spend $$$ on new parts or a repairman!

Tip

Dishwasher does not dispense cleaning tablet


The soap dispenser drawer is supposed to open during the cycle. Try first to understand if the drawer is opening or not during cycle.

If the drawer is not opening, then check if the opening mechanism is stuck, if it is blocked by dirt and soap, if it is broken, or if something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is preventing the drawer from opening.

Some dishwasher works only with powder, in that case indications are given on the owners manual.

If the drawer opens and the table, or powder is still staying stuck in the drawer, then that means that the spray does not have enough power to solve the tablet.
In that case check spray arms and impeller pump.Also check water temperature.

If the problem is also happening with powder, then it is probably a drawer not opening on cycle.

Draw will not close


Look under the drawer and look for a plastic pin sticking up. This pin needs to be in the track on the bottom of the drawer for it to close and load correctly.

Electrolux frontloader washer detergent drawer won't stay shut


Hello royal37 - Hi - The dispenser drawer could either be cracked or have a broken latch due to interference between the drawer front and top panel. Contact a professional to move forward accurately and might possibly need to order a service kit (PN: 137146000/part number may be different depending on your model number).

HI. My Acer Aspire 3500 DVD drawer was I guess off track. The drawer wouldn't open so I pried it open. Now it won't stay shut and when it is shut I can't open it unless I use a paper clip.


There is very little you can, these items in general cannot be repaired. Go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to cd/dvd driver.
