Having problems with your Whirlpool GU2400XTPS Built-in Dishwasher ?

Soap not clearing compartment - again

\015 Had this problem several months ago with the cascade packets, so I changed to the gel--this resolved the issue until two weeks ago.Dishwasher runs a normal cycle and completes. When I open the door, the soap compartment is open, and there is undissolved soap both in the compartment and down the door, as well as on the silverware. I've checked for obstructions to the arms, and it looks clear. Have run both in "Normal" and "Light" modes with no change. Have moved dishes around to several configurations with same result. All thoughts are welcome!\015

Answers :

These dishwashers have had pump issues that causing this problem about low\015\012pressure circulation which will keep the powder from fully being used. So you'll likely need a new pump/motor assembly. Otherwise you can check\015\012the spring mechanism on the soap dispenser though usually it is a pump problem. Close the catch and release\015\012manually. You may find resistance or not opening. The spring mechanism\015\012may be slightly askew. Twist back a tad, close and release manually\015\012until it releases freely.
Let me know how this turns out.

It seems like the door of the soap compartment is not opening until the end of the whole cycle, like after the final rinse, because there is caked on, hardened soap on the bottom of the upturned glass, mug or jar just below the compartment as well as hardened soap still left in the compartment itself.

Model number 665.13763k600 Seems like dishes on the top rack do not get hit with a lot of water. Also, when soap packets are put into the soap compartment, the soap packets no longer dissolve. It appears that there may be a problem with water flow. Have had the unit for a few years. Wondering if it could be a filter or something?
