Question about Bosch 24 in. SHU5305UC Built-in Dishwasher
To remove the Outer Door, open the door and remove the
six T-20 Torx screws located three on each side of the Inner
Stainless Door, Fig. 7-1.
Return the door back to its upright position, and bring the
bottom of the Door Panel out toward you, then slide the top of
the panel down and out from under the Facia Panel, Fig. 7-2.
As the Outer Door is being removed, the left or right Door
Guards may shift or fall out of place, Fig. 7-3.
To reposition them, slide them back in over the hinge, Fig. 7-4,
lining up the door guard square tab with the hinge lever
Please note: Door Guards must be in place before
reinstalling the Door Panel. Door Guards are
not used on SHI or SHV models.
Once the Outer Door has been removed the following components become visible.
1. Dispenser Assembly
2. Condensation Tube
3. Upper Wiring Harness
4. Door Guards
5. Door Seal
6. Bituminious Insulation
7. Cloth Fiber Insulation
Also note the Toe Kick, item 8, and the Toe Kick Mounting Screws, item 9.
The Dispenser Assembly operates via a PTC
Actuator (wax motor), item 1.
When voltage is applied to the Actuator it
advances a Combination Lever, item 2.
The Combination Lever allows the Soap Door to open,
and later in the cycle dispenses the Rinse Agent.
To remove the Actuator, first disconnect the
Wiring Connector. Then, using a small
screwdriver, release the locking tab….
…and bring the Actuator out from the Dispenser.
Please note: The Combination Lever cannot be
replaced individually, but only as
part of a new Dispenser Assembly.

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.
