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.
