Maytag MDB8859AWS, cover latch that's a part of the detergent dispenser came entirely out of the hole that the long spindle on the end of the cover latch fits into it. Does this mean the part's broken? Now the detergent dispenser won't open automatically. I can TRY and close the cover after I put the cover latch's long spindle back in the hole, but something doesn't seem right. Only three months old!

Whirlpool DU980QPDQ3: As per FixYa solution, I was successful in removing the inner panel of my dishwasher door in order to clean it. Since reinstalling the inner door panel, including the cover and drawbar for the detergent dispenser latch, the dispenser door will not open during the wash cycle.

The detergent dispenser [Main Wash] door doesn't stay closed. It seems like there is something wrong with the latch, but we can't what. We've cleaned it, but don't know what else to try. There don't seem to be pieces missing or broken. But no matter what, when we put in the detergent [we use the cubes] the door always just pops open and the detergent ends up falling to the bottom on the dishwasher. The dishes are still getting relatively clean, but we want to solve the problem with the door

The cover of the detergent dispenser does not latch properly and will flip open. The dishwasher is 6 years old and I think we need to replace the dispenser assembly but don't know how to take it off the door and put it back. The model number is GU1500XTKB0 Thank you for your help.


I've posted this before. The latch just needs a good cleaning. In the past, something placed in the washer kept the door from opening properly, which caused detergent to dry under the latch.

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

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash built-in Diswasher. The flap on the detergent door does not open as it should during wash cycle. Also, I thought the rinse aid was empty so I went to fill it and its obvious that it has not been dispensing either. Otherwise the dishwaser seems to work ok, but we have hard water & I've tried everything and still have residue on dishes.

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

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. After I switched to a Cascade Action Pads (solid powder pallets), its detergent dispenser did not open during the wash cycle. I cleaned the dispenser and switched back to liquid gel. Now the detergent dispenser (that looks clean and fine otherwise) has stopped opening during the wash cycle. What's wrong and what can be done? I can be contacted

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. Am I loading the dishwaher is such a way that the detergent is not getting out?
