Detergent cover latch doesnt always open

Detergent cover latch intermittently opens during wash cycle. Tried many different wash cycles and types of detergents. Cup is clean and dry before filing. Sometimes by pressing the latch once then starting wash is successful.

I have had this problem on a dishwasher IF I overfilled with powdered detergent. It would cake and the door would not open. Now I always leave a little space.

Detergent door does not open during session


Sounds like a bad dispenser solenoid, or it is not getting the prompt to open from the controller or timer and it also sounds like it is still under warranty, get them out to look at it while you can.

Soap dispenser does not open during wash cycle


  • Hi,


    please try this...
    imer:
            On mechanical set ups the timer is attached to the detergent cup by an actuator arm. This arm is usually plastic, and if it is broken or otherwise defective then the detergent cup wont be opened. Check the linkage to make sure it is functioning correctly.
    Bi-metal switch or wax motor:
            The bi-metal switch is simply a very precise device that warps, bends, or otherwise deforms when power is supplied to it. The timer operates the bi-metal switch, which inside the dishwasher door. Then the switch is supplied with power and it is working properly, the bi-metal switch deforms away from the latch holding the detergent cup closed and the cup opens dumping the detergent into the washer.
            Some dishwashers have this switch wired through the motor power feed or the heating element. If they are defective then the detergent door will not operate correctly. If the switch itself is defective then you will need to replace it. Another type of mechanism is a wax motor. Wax motors are sealed units filled with wax and found in newer dishwashers and work by heating the wax and forcing up a piston which in turn mechanically opens the detergent cup door. This type of device is also controlled by the timer.
     
    Detergent cup:
            Sometimes the detergent cup becomes built up with old detergent that prevents it from opening correctly. It's usually a simple fix to clean this out. If cleaning it is impossible then you may need to replace the cup assembly.

    please rate my suggestion..

Small door where soap goes does not open during cycle.


Most detergent cups are spring loaded and released by either a mechanical trip or by a bi-metal strip latch. If your model is a simple dial timer type, look for a mechanical linkage between the timer and detergent cover. If it is a touch panel control, look for the other type. The bi-metal strip type has a heating wire wraped around it that can open electrically or burn out physically.

Mechanical types can be checked by rotating the timer knob 360 degrees while watching the detergent cover linkage. Electrical types require use of an ohm meter to check the resistance of the heating element on the bi-metal strip.

If you are using powder type detergent, make sure it is not caked when added to the cup or it can jam the rotating type covers.
