Having problems with your Kenmore 15762 Dishwasher ?

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


Answers :

Yes its probably the little latch that holds the door closed thats worn out.

The soap dispenser no longer closes and I see that my dishes aren't getting as clean as they should. It appears the closure clasp/hook has lost a piece so that it doesn't catch the lid. Can the entire dispenser be repaced? Or is there another fix

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?

We have a Whirlpool mod# DU1055XTVD0 dishwasher .. the blue latch designed to keep the lid to the detergent dispenser closed after filling has come loose from the inside door panel and now will not stay in place to keep the detergent lid shut. We did find a small o-ring in the bottom of the tub that apparently is part of what helps maybe hold this latch in place, but obviously there must be something else that fits inside the hole the latch goes in that keeps it secure.

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!!!!
