Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDBH950AWS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Nope. My challenge is that the container for the soap is not unlatching during the wash cycle or at all. So at the end of a wash the cascade soap pod is still entact in the shut soap container.

Frigidaire model F71C12PHS0 is not washing, it goes through the cycle and when the door is opened the soap container is open with soap still in it. We have run it with the door open to see if it is spraying and it is. The heat is working because when we open it at the end of cycle it is hot. Yet soap is still there and dishes are not clean. Thanks to anyone who can help me trouble shoot this.

The dishwasher is not washing. There is grainy residue on everything...even the wine glasses which had no food residue when they were put in the dishwasher, but are filthy at the end of the cycle. There is a bit of soap powder left in the soap powder container. I use Cascade powder detergent and Jet Dry . Thanks for your help.

Hi, Just moved into a place with a DU4500B Magic Chef. After a cycle there is still a clump of wet soap in the main wash cup dispenser and the dishes aren't clean. Yesterday I tried putting the soap in the pre wash and and main wash dispensers but leaving the main wash soap dispenser OPEN rather than clicking it shut, and there was still left over soap in the dispenser and granulated soap residue on the dishes and they weren't clean. Many thanks for your help.

Have the Kenmore Limited Edition dishwasher, model # 665.15892100. When dishwasher is running, you can hear the soap container flip open. However, @ end of washer's completion, and main door is opened, the soap is still in the container. Some has leaked out, but the majority is still in the container. Dishes are still dirty, so it appears that either there is no water to disperse the soap, or does the door really open? Any ideas?

I am getting a clicking/ticking noise (1 click/second) from my Maytag (model MDB9100)dishwasher after it goes through its auto clean normal wash cycle. At the end of the cycle the arrow = clean and the clicking sound is there. I opened the washer door for about 1 minute noted the soap containers are empty, dishes clean, machine still hot/steamy. Closed the washer door and the clicking sound resumes. Please advise.

After moveing to a new house our Bosch dishwasher is not washing the powdered soap out of the holder, then bakes on a nice film of soap on all of the dishes. When the cycle is done a fairly solid ball of soap is still in the tilt-out soap holder. I have looked for obstructions and cleaned out the screens but still no luck fixing it. We think the soap holder didn't used to end in the tilted out position but we can't remember for sure.

Bosch SHE55P05UC Used it maybe 10 times in 10 months (long remodel underway) and noticed it didn't work properly. Powers up, but doesn't always fill with water...just "runs" until I shut it off. Or it fills, runs most of cycle, but the soap doesn't open, and I end up with a hard soap "cake" at end of cycle...Or it washes..with soap, but during drying...never turns off...and I'm not sure when the problem occurs, but that everything is wet.

Soap problems Not only won't the soap dissolve but there are granules on the inside of my glasses. The dishes are also not getting very clean. I have been using cascade 2 in 1 action packs for a few months now with no problem, they've been great. I ran a wash 2 days ago and when it was done, I opened it up and the dishes were still dirty and the action pack was just sitting there slightly open with detergent sitting on the bottom of the machine. I had done a wash 2 days before with no problem.
