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

The soap dispenser on our Kenmore Elite dishwasher (SEARS part number 8558128) will not stay closed. The little latch mechanism appears to be working, but the spring on the lid's base keeps the lid wide open at all times. I have examined the pop-up dispenser lid to see if some sort of plastic tip held by the latch after soap is added is broken off- this may be the case but I cannot see any damage where such a lip may have broken off. Does the latch catch the lid by snapping onto a plastic lip? I
