Answers :

THE DETERGENT DOOR IS OPENED BY THE HEAT OF THE WATER (WARPS IT OPEN), YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THE HEATING ELEMENT FOR THE WASHER IS WORKING PROPERLY, THIS CAN ALSO BE CAUSED BY THE TIMER CYCLE CONTROL NOT WORKING CORRECTLY AND SIGNALING THE HEATER ELEMENT TO COME ON, U WILL NEED TO HAVE SOMEONE LOOK AT THE HEATER ELEMENT AND THE CYCLE CONTROL TO DECIDE WHICH IS THE PROBLEM
Hi there,

Most detergent dispenser doors are spring loaded. This means that the\015\012spring holding the door shut needs to be released by another component.\015\012The other component that will allow the dispenser door to open will\015\012either be the dishwasher's timer, a bi-metal switch, or a wax motor.

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.

My dishwasher SMS 448 works up to the point in the cycle when the dispenser is supposed to dislodge the Powerball detergent. It doesn't, and the machine stops. If I open the door and click the dispenser, the Powerball falls into the dishwasher unit itself. But when I close the door, the machine doesn't operate until I turn the knob a bit farther on in the cycle. Then, no water comes out, but the knob moves on in the cycle and the heating pipes heat up

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

Detergent dispenser door Whirlpool DU7400 won't open. I tested 300109 ACTUATOR resistance and it is closed. I ran washer and saw the actuator receives a current several times during the complete wash cycle. How else can I test? I notice the lever on the Acutator is quite floppy. Should it be stiff? Also the dispenser door does pop open if pushed from behind so that seems OK? Does anyone have the actual testing procedure for this problem? Thanks for anyone's help!

Hi. My problem is with my dishwasher detergent dispenser. It does open (at least it is open at completion of cleaning cycle), appears to deliver soap to dishes (as they appear clean), however, from the dispenser to the bottom of the door, there remains a very large amount of soap residue after wash is complete. This residue only continues to build up after each wash? The dispenser does not appear to be clogged and also appears to be delivering soap to dishes so I am not sure what to check for

I have a Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher.
