I have a KitchenAid but model # KUDI24SEWH1. Can not find it on your list although another model without the last letters 'WH1' is on it. Anyway, my nephew ordered the parts he said needed to be replaced. One was the top water feed tube and bearing which he had no problem replacing when the part came in. But, he is having a very difficult time opening up the front door to replace the soap dispenser. Removed the 6 screw (three on each side) and the two at the top of the door but that is as far

It seems we are having issues with our soap dispenser opening correctly. The last couple times there has been a solid block of detergent sitting in the dispenser when the cycle is finished. We have been keeping our detergent in the cupboard, not under the sink where it could get too moist. We then ran a cycle with a liguid detergent, and it was barely touched. There was gooey liquid all over the place when the cycle was done. A change on the settings to "Heavy Wash" left detergent residue on

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

My FDB1050REC0 soap dispenser doesnt open

The is for the model: DDW1899WP. The cycle is getting stuck in the first phase and the soap container is not opening. When I open the soap contain, water has seeped in because the soap is moist and hard rather than loose and powdered. In addition, water is pooling int he bottom of the dishwasher. I tried adding more rinse aid because that has solved the problem in the past but it is still persisting.

... Kenmore 13783 / 13785 Stainless Steel Dishwasher

Frigidaire dishwasher won't end cycle - will run on and on for hours. Sometimes it cycles through, usually it just endlessly washes and rinses. I have to CANCEL the cycle, which causes the dishwasher to empty and run a few RINSE ONLY cycles (which are consistent, cycle time wise) to rinse the soap off of the dishes. Also, the door for the soap seems to stick - how long into the cycle before the soap door should open? Also, does opening the washer during it's cycle (to add more dishes) change or
