Having problems with your Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher ?

Soap door latch

\015 My soap door latch on sticks and wont open during the wash\015

Answers :

Clean out the soap latch area with water and try using liquid detergent.
failing that, you need to replace the latch.

for the question from 'guest', the wash arms not spinning relates to either a build up of minerals or a pump that is not pushing enough. clean the unit with a mineral deposit remover, and then run a few loads with just water. clr might do the trick, but check the label for conflicts with the materials in your machine.
good luck

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'm trying to fix a whirlpool du980qpdq6 dishwasher. The door on the soap dispenser won't open. I've checked the latch and it works...no blockage. I've taken the door apart and looked at the Wax motor in the door. Apparently that is what actuates the mechanism that opens the door. Does anyone know how to test the wax motor to see if it is functioning?

Kude48fxbl - brand new out-of-the-box. When put through a test cycle after installing it, water poured out of the bottom left edge of the door. This was not associated with either the water input or the discharge hose, but rather seemed to come from the interior of the washer and out under the door. The door seemed well latched, and running it with some dishes in the bottom tray (not blocking the soap dispenser) didn't help.

Detergent dispenser will not stay shut so the soap power falls out before washing starts. Last time use I opened the door by mistake part way through the cycle. Could this have messed up the latch release mechanism? Thanks, slice10sheep


Opening the door did not affect the latch on the dispenser. The catch does wear out and can be replaced. This involves disassembling the door and a small jigsaw puzzle of springs and levers. If you are attempting I would advise taking pictures to ref ... Kenmore Dishwashers

I have a Magtag dishwasher, model #MDB6650AWQ thats not running. I check the power supply all the way up to the door latch and it shows that there's power there. However the circuit panel not lighting up and nothing happens when you push the normal wash cycle or any of the other buttons. I believe the problems is electrical in the door latch handle.
