Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Soap container does not open during the cycle -- is still closed after cycle is finished.


Answers :

Hi.

If the door does not open at all , then you will probably need to replace the dispenser door lock. Before replaing the lock, check continuity (read Ohms with power off) on wiring between electrically operated door latch and timer board. If there is continuity and no broken wiring, then replace the door latch.

Before going for the dispenser door lock, also check if the drawer is not opening because door or opening mechanism is\015\012stuck with dirt and soap, if it is mecanically broken, or if\015\012something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is\015\012preventing the drawer from opening.

I am getting a clicking/ticking noise (1 click/second) from my Maytag (model MDB9100)dishwasher after it goes through its auto clean normal wash cycle. At the end of the cycle the arrow = clean and the clicking sound is there. I opened the washer door for about 1 minute noted the soap containers are empty, dishes clean, machine still hot/steamy. Closed the washer door and the clicking sound resumes. Please advise.

Machine cannot finish cycle and is stuck in pumping out mode. Only tiny amount of water in drain basin at bottom, no excessive water. Was set at 10pm, still attempting to drain 8am! Has no diagnostic dials or manual over rides so continues on whether door is open or closed, even if I switch off and on again. Possible related issue, recently finish at end of washes has been "grainy", far from perfect, surfaces slightly sandy feeling.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on.

My soap cap remains in the closed position at all times. The clasp mechanism works fine, if I cycle through with the door open I can see and hear the catch release when it should. But the door remains closed at all times. I leave it open to run, and sometimes it's closed when the wash cycle finishes! Is there an easy way to take the cap off and clean it? Or do I need to WD-40 around it?
