The soap dispenser is intended for both liquid and powder detergents. If you have a problem with mildew, then you may need to clean it occasionally with bleach water.

How does soap dispenser work? what does up for liquid and down for powder mean?


Liquid laundry soap (comes in plastic liquid container) uses the up. Dry powder laundry soap uses the soap that comes in a box, therefore not liquid. and uses the down switch slider control.

My soap dispenser wont pump soap


Are you out of soap? Does the pump go freely up and down? If the pump goes down a little and then stops its probably clogged. If this is the case just get a long piece of notebook wire and slide it through the pump and it may unclog it. Really a soap pump is a very simple set-up. Suction from one end brings the soap through the tube and out the actual dispenser. Hope this was helpful:)

You should have a little divider in the soap drawer , it needs to be moved into a different position for liquid ( holds the liquid until the cycle begins)

How do you put the liquid soap dispenser back


The "bottle" screws in from the bottom. The "pump" is inserted in the top. I usually fill mine from the top without taking out the bottle. Too much of a pain. Just make sure the large nut holding the hardware in place is secure before you start assembling the bottom and top. If it's loose, the whole thing will wiggle around. Good luck!

Soap dispenser does not open during wash


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Remove any dishes in the dishwasher. Unhook the dishwasher's dish trays or racks from their tracks, and set aside. Empty the soap dispenser if it contains unused soap that failed to dispense. Use a wet rag to wipe down the interior of the dishwasher, as well as the inside of the dispenser.
 
2. Close the dispenser, and shut the dishwasher door. Turn the dishwasher on to a manual setting, then stop it and open the appliance. Check to see if the dispenser is open. If it is, continue to Step 2. If the dispenser is closed, skip to Step 4.

3. Switch dishwasher soap. Some dishwasher dispensers have difficulty with dry or liquid dishwashing soap, depending on the make and model of your dishwasher. Incompatibilities typically result in the dispenser sticking shut, which explains why the dispenser opens when empty. Switch to liquid soap if you are using dry powder soap, or vice versa.

4. Check the dishwasher soap dispenser's spring. The spring is located behind the dispenser top's hinge. Consult your dishwasher's original manufacturer's manual or user guide to find a replacement spring. Pop the old spring out with a screwdriver, and replace with a new spring. This should resolve any issues related to the dispenser failing to open.
Please post comments if you need more help or information..........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Hello. You will find that the bottle will come out once you remove the nut under the surface of the sink.
You have to get into the cabinet to do this. And, a faucet wrench, available at any hardware store will assist you greatly. Regards, joe

Is powder or liqued detergent better for front


They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.

I suggest you use soap powder for 'front loading washing machines'. The cartons at the market have them specially marked.
