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?

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 Fisher and Paykel Nautilus DW920 dishwasher. However, the door to the detergent dispenser does not open reliably every load -- usually I have to open the dishwasher door about 20 minutes into the load and open the soap dispenser myself. The catch on the dispenser will have released, but the dispenser door will not have sprung open. I am not sure exactly what the problem is -- the soap dispenser door simply seems a bit stiff in its holster. Given a little nudge, it springs open fine. I h

Kitchenaid model kudso3ctblo, Type 577-0 Ser. FU3202943 When the dishwasher is finished, the soap tablet is still inside the dispenser & the door is still closed. We can open the door by hand & see that the soap has not dissolved. We found a tiny spring on the floor last week. Is there a metal spring in the dispenser? Could this have broken off & now keeps the door from opening?

The door on our dishwasher no longer opens gradually, it slams to the ground. I think it is the hinge or spring mechanism but I don't know what I need to replace.

The detergent dispenser door on my AEG favorit 86070vi will not spring open. I found a small coil spring on the floor and suspect that it was involved with the opening function. For info, the dispenser door fell off a few weeks ago and was replaced by my wife. She can't recall how she did it and I can't see how it can be removed. The spring has one arm approx 10 mm long, the other is about 2 mm and the coil (body) is about 10 mm. Hope you can help

When opening the door to my Kitchenaid Superba dishwasher, I heard a loud noise inside the machine. The door slammed open. Now, it opens, closes, and latches; however, the spring-assist that slows the opening no longer works, and the heavy door, when unlatched to open, swings freely and quickly down.

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher KUDS03ST We built our house and had this dishwasher sitting in the box for almost 2 yrs before finally using it. After finally installing it I find that occasionally the door to the soap does not open for washing as I find out when the dishes are supposed to be clean and I open the door to hear the soap then pop out of the dispenser.

I have a KitchenAid but model # KUDI24SEWH1. Can not find it on your list although another model without the last letters 'WH1' is on it. Anyway, my nephew ordered the parts he said needed to be replaced. One was the top water feed tube and bearing which he had no problem replacing when the part came in. But, he is having a very difficult time opening up the front door to replace the soap dispenser. Removed the 6 screw (three on each side) and the two at the top of the door but that is as far

The lid to the soap compartment for the second soaping no longer opens. How can I fix this? It will no longer start a heavy duty or pots and pans wash.

My ASKO 1805 Dishwasher started to smell weird and white smoke came from it. I turned it off, but after I turned it on again it just keeps pumping water in and out, I can't get in contact with it (None of the indicator lights are working and it is not reacting to any commands) In addition the safety feauture that is supposed to stop all operation the moment the door is opened is no longer working. (i.e. even with the door open it is still pumping water) Does it sound like an expensive repair? (

It became more frequent until two days ago when the dishwasher stopped mid cycle and flashed PF. When I opened and closed the door, everything went dead and the dishwasher no longer works.
