Hi- It sounds like the solenoid on the dispenser is not changing the water diverter to the wash portion (cup) of the dispenser. You most likely need a new dispenser. Probably best to have a Tech out to change it.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash built-in Diswasher. The flap on the detergent door does not open as it should during wash cycle.

The machine works fine, but about one out of every 4 or 5 times it is run, the detergent remains in the dispenser. The dispenser door has opened and the detergent is hard packed from having gotten wet. It seems like whatever is supposed to cause the detergent to be flushed out of the dispenser is not happening.

It seems we are having issues with our soap dispenser opening correctly. The last couple times there has been a solid block of detergent sitting in the dispenser when the cycle is finished. We have been keeping our detergent in the cupboard, not under the sink where it could get too moist. We then ran a cycle with a liguid detergent, and it was barely touched. There was gooey liquid all over the place when the cycle was done. A change on the settings to "Heavy Wash" left detergent residue on

When my dishwasher completes its cycle, there is powdered detergent left in the dispenser and the dishes aren't as clean as they use to be. This started happening after I ran a HI TEMP WASH with a SANI RINSE cycle. I'm thinking that either the detergent dispenser door is opening late or the water is not getting hot enough. To check the dispenser door, I left the door open and just poured powder into the dispenser compartment. This did not improve the cleaning.

Since purchasing my dishwasher last year I've constantly had intermittent problems regarding the detergent dispenser. It often does not open and therefore does not release the detergent into the wash...the detergent gets damp inside the dispenser and sticks....it often tumbles out when I open the dishwasher door at the end of the cycle.


I would replace the control board. Since the problem is intermittent this would indicate that the controller is not consistently sending voltage to the dispenser to open. ... Whirlpool GU2300XTSS Stainless Steel 24 in Builtin Dishwasher

I have a Whirlpool Gold (Quite Partner) Dishwasher that is about 9 years old. I was using a liquid gel Dishwasher liquid and it has been working fine.
