It is about 5 years old, with controls directly on the top of the door.Should I bother fixing it -( how much should I expect to spend?)...or buy a new one?Thanks!\015

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?

The soap dispenser door will not open - I have been putting the tablets/ in the silverware basket for now but the dishes are not always coming out the cleanest. I think this is because the soap is being used up at the wrong time. Help.

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried

I have a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher. However, the door to the detergent dispenser does not open reliably every load -- usually I have to open the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the load and open the soap dispenser myself. The catch on the dispenser will have released, but the dispenser door will not have sprung open. I am not sure exactly what the problem is -- the soap dispenser door simply seems a bit stiff in its holster. Given a little nudge, it springs open fine. I h

Soap dispenser The soap dispenser door does not open automatically as it should... stays closed throughout the cycle unless we stop the cycle, open the dishwasher door and then open the soap dispenser door any suggestions? This is a Maytag DWU 9200.


A wax motor controls the opening of the lid. Also a seal that fits around the latch lever may be deteriorating and obstructing the function of the lever. Follow the link below for images and part numbers with cost.\015\012Item# 1405...$20.30 ... Maytag 24 in. DWU9202 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Miele G868 dishwasher. It is 15 yrs old. 8 months ago the soap dispenser wouldn't close, so I got another dispenser from Miele and replaced it myself. Everything worked fine until 3 months later, when the soap dispenser did not open. After 3 restarts, it began to function as it should. Now 5 months later, the soap dispenser is not opening at all. Here are my observations: 1. Economy wash cycle should run 35 minutes but only runs 13 now. 2. Water in machine is not hot, even though I run

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.
