The catch on the dispenser will have released, but the dispenser door will not have sprung open.

Hi, I'm working on a KUDI02FRSS0 for my neighbor. She complained the door flew open one day during a wash and the door had been very heavy since. A quick check on the internet, and I thought it would be simple... I installed an 8194001 balance kit. Both cords had broken.

When the door popped open, thanks to the new balance kit, it would not fly open as it had p

I have a frigidaire FDB1050REC0 dishwasher that is working fine most of the time.

It is like the detergent is getting wet with the detergent door closed and then when it is supposed to open, the detergent is wet and clumps. We switched to liquid detergent and the same thing is happening
