I have a whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 and the detergent door will not open automatically anymore. The compartment is thoroughly cleaned and wont even open if its empty so gook or over filling is not the problem. I believe I probably knocked off some part that makes it open at the proper time. If someone could explain how the process works and/or submits a picture of the parts, I could perhaps deduce what is missing. Thank you in advance as this is driving me nuts!
