Soap Dispensor does NOT open.

\015 Whirlpool Model DU850DWGX1 The soap dispensor flap does not open during wash cycle.\015

Answers :

Clean the dispenser well with warm water and an old toothbrush. especially the spring area. If this doesn't help you may be looking at replacement. You also might try a little dab of cooking oil on your finger and rub over the spring.
This is almost always a dispenser problem. The dispenser is replaced as a unit. you can reach it by removing the Phillips screws around the inside of the door and lifting up the inner door panel. The dispenser's frame is held in place with tiny (1/8 in or 5.5mm) screws.

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?

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?
