\015\012Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn’t allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) Maytag dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip, also inspect the connections to these.

SOAP DISPEN DISHWASHER SOAP DISPEN NOT OPENING I bought a brand new LG dishwasher about 6 months ago. I've had a few problems with it. First, it gives off a smell when it operates. Secondly, more often than not, the soap dispenser does not open. I have read the manual and have tried putting a lot less soap but it still does not work. Should I try switching to liquid soap instead?


Is the machine heating ok?, if so then the dispenser and or the electronic control board is most likely faulty. \015\012if the machine is still in warranty call your lg service agent and when the tech is on site, reque ... Dishwashers

My maytag dishwasher MDBH970AWQ Quiet series 300 is more and more often not opening the soap dispenser. Also the number 9 flashes and can't seem to get it to go away. If I try to start the dishwasher over again with the hopes of the dispenser opening the dishwasher just runs for the countdown of 9 to zero. Help!

Kqon, looks like your dispenser has a wax motor. I think the first thing you have to do is remove the inner door and inspect the soap dispensor assy. See if any of the moving parts are broken. This wax motor is 120V so you can run a cheater cord ... Maytag 24 in. PDC3600A Built-in Dishwasher

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

I have an LG dishwasher lds5811ww -- for about 1.5 years. Purchased it at Best Buy. The soap dispenser is not emptying completely anymore. The upper rack is in its uppermost position. I suspect that the top two spray bars are not turning around because they have not changed positions when I suddenly open the dishwasher while in operation. The spray nozzles do not appear clogged. Any suggestions?

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?

I have a Miele G868 dishwasher. It is 15 yrs old. 8 months ago the soap dispenser wouldn't close, so I got another dispenser from Miele and replaced it myself. Everything worked fine until 3 months later, when the soap dispenser did not open. After 3 restarts, it began to function as it should. Now 5 months later, the soap dispenser is not opening at all. Here are my observations: 1. Economy wash cycle should run 35 minutes but only runs 13 now. 2. Water in machine is not hot, even though I run
