Hi

If the soap dispenser door doesn't closes on your GE dishwasher then disconnet the dishwasher from power and check the spring & plastic tab under the timer. Check the plastic tab, it breaks often and will not let the soap door to open or close easily. Try to install a small screw where the tab use to be to re-hook the spring. If this seems to be OK then check the dispenser arms, door cover and handle. The spring hooks on a groove cut into the dispenser arm, and other one hooks onto a tab built onto the inner door panel. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I have a EuroTech dishwasher Model# EDW254E/SB. It was working fine but now it gives the Err code:er1 Its not letting incoming water in i know that. As well I have been told to try reducing the water pressure at the facet. Did that nothing.It drains but wont cycle to the next stage and let water in. I am presuming there is a valve of some sort not opening? And does the dishwasher have to be completly romoved to fix. Thanks

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?

Help! My dishwasher runs thru it's cycles but when I open it I find my second detergent cup still full of soap and my dishes still dirty. I have an older maytag dishwasher but have never had this problem with it. I've tried running a short prewash cycle with the soap despenser open to wash out the soap from the open second despenser but it doesn't wash it out. I know water is coming out of the spray arms but can't see if the arms are spinning although when running it does sound like they ar

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 have a whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 and the detergent door will not open automatically anymore. The compartment is thoroughly cleaned and wont even open if its empty so gook or over filling is not the problem. I believe I probably knocked off some part that makes it open at the proper time. If someone could explain how the process works and/or submits a picture of the parts, I could perhaps deduce what is missing. Thank you in advance as this is driving me nuts!

I bought a used GE Triton XL d/w with no manual. It worked great but now it is not cleaning anything, when the cycle is over the soap cup is open but half of the soap is still inside of the cup. I opened the d/w during a cycle and the dishes are wet top and bottom racks so I know it's getting water but the dishes are still filthy. Why is the soap not working? It's like water is spraying everywhere but the door where the cup is!

The soap dispenser in my whirlpool dishwasher doesn't open during the wash cycle. I think the problem is that the spring has loosened, so it can't flip the dispenser door open. What can I do to fix the spring, and if it can't be fixed how do I replace it?

I believe there are counter weights on the main door that allow you to open the door a few inches. Mine will only open the the full [down] open position. What typically goes wrong and how do I fix it? Also there is a streak of sopa leading from the rinse aid fill location. Where do I look to find parts. One of the plastic spacers on the handle broke.


Most of my exprience has been that there is a pully/spring arrangement for the door tension. You'll have to pull your D/W out far enough to see and adjust.\015\012Regards, --W/D-- ... LG Dishwashers
