I have a GE Profile Triton XL Dishwasher PDW 7880P00SS for the past 1.5 years. The manual detergent dispenser always has 50-75% of the detergent left over like the door didn't open sufficiently regardless of what soap I use (liquid, powder, etc.). Currently using Finish powerball tabs.

Powder solenoid I hav e an AEG Favorit 50700 sensorlogic dishwasher. As soon as I switch on, before even selecting a programme, the solenoid to operate the powder dispenser door operates, then stays activated until I remove power. I've taken the door liner off and the PCB looks OK - but I guess whatever powers up this solenoid has gone short circuit. Any idea what it might be or might look like?

Detergent dispenser will not stay shut so the soap power falls out before washing starts. Last time use I opened the door by mistake part way through the cycle. Could this have messed up the latch release mechanism? Thanks, slice10sheep


Opening the door did not affect the latch on the dispenser. The catch does wear out and can be replaced. This involves disassembling the door and a small jigsaw puzzle of springs and levers. If you are attempting I would advise taking pictures to ref ... Kenmore Dishwashers

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.

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.

Our Whirlpool ADP5966 is not washing properly: the dishes do not come out clean and the soap mainly stays in the dispenser although it opens normally.

My Kitchenaid dishwasher (model KUDS02SRSS0) keeps burning out my dispenser. First I replaced the dispenser, then I replaced the control board and dispenser, it worked for two weeks and now I have a melted solenoid again in my dispenser. I've measured voltage to the solenoid and it is getting 110V through the entire diagnostic cycle. This is wrong. It should only get power at some point during the cycle to open the dispenser. It appears the control board has failed again and in the same wa

Dishwasher problem It is a "classique" dishwasher , about 8 years old, but used only about 50 times max. The dishes are not getting out clean - the washing powder is smeared over them. Most of the dish washing powder (or tablet, tried it both) is not comming out of the powder compartment, despite the fact that we find the compartment open when the washing cycle is done. Sure it is just a "smal quick fix thing" but have not idea what it could be. Pleaseee help!
