Having problems with your Whirlpool Dishwashers ?

I have a whirlpool dishwasher and the little door that holds the little pack of soap doesn't work right the little pack doesn't desolve.

Hi.

If the drawer does not open at all, then the problem is the drawer mechanism itself or the detergent drawer switch connected to the electroni control module. In that case the door must be taken apart to test and eventually replace the part. The switch can be tested energizing it and observing the action on drawer. Most dishwashers use a low voltage mechanism. Please refer to service manual for specific model. Most drawers are operated thanks to a spring installed in the drawer. Check that the spring is well in place.

If the drawer releases too late and/or tablet does not dissolve, then the switch may be OK, but the drawer may be obstructed by baskets, the detergent may be incorrect, or the water may not be heating or filling. In that case follow the indications here: The soap dispenser drawer.

To find parts and diagrams try entering the full model number (as from service tag) in the websites listed at the link below:

GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray. I have to open the machine and add the soap to the bottom of the machine if I want to get my di

Re:dishwasher My dishwasher was working perfect. Now, everytime the cycle is done, the detergent door is open but the detergent is sitting right there. I was using the electrosol gel pack which was working great. Now, the gel pack is sitting there when i open it. On the bottom is of the dishwasher is a lot of sand-like particles. I clean this out everytime. I haven't changed anything and am wondering why, all of a sudden, it stopped working. I've had this less than a year. Thanks.

I have an Equator Mini Maid PLS602S dishwasher. It works fine, but the upper spray arm fell off and the clip and knob holding it in place are missing. Equator said they no longer make this model and don't have the parts. Can you tell me where to get the clip and knob to hold the upper spray arm in place. I know there is a little white clip - I actually had it but lost it, because when I tried to hold the arm in place with that, the next time I ran the dishwasher the arm fell off again. I

Whirlpool DU927QWDG1 Hi, The problem I'm having with my dishwasher pertains to the door cover for the area I place the soap. There is a small spring which helps the door pop open to release the soap when washing. I cant figure out how to place the spring so that the pops open.....right now when I run the unit the door stays latched and the soap doesn't get dispensed. Any ideas on how to repair this or where I could maybe get a parts manual??? Your expertise will be greatly appreciated!!!!

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a

When I add a litre or so of water in manually and hold in the door catch, I can see it appear to start working properly.

My Dishwasher starts, then stops after 30secs and won't continue draining. Everytime I turn it back on it comes up on the steam cycle and won't go to any other cycle, drains for 30secs and stops again. Power light is flashing. Have tried holding power button down for 10secs with no effect. Filter is clean, pipes are straight-no kinks. How do I get it to start working again? It is a whirlpool dishwasher, ADP5550.

I purchased a Whirlpool dishwasher in either July or August 2009 from Best Buy. It is not cleaning all my dishes. I have tried 3 different types of soap--the packets that came with it; powder; and liquid hoping that it would work. I have loaded light and heavy. I have tried the normal and light settings with rinse, hot water or not. They are just not getting clean. And the dispensers are not totally emptying. I already had to have a new dishwasher sent because the first one was damaged on

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
