Dishwasher Detergent Dispenser Not Opening


I'm having a problem with the cover on my dishwasher (Kenmore or Whirlpool, can't recall, just a basic probably 15-year old unit) not opening during the cycle. I've taken to just leaving it open. The spring is good, it's just not opening during the cycle. What's the typical failure mode for these things?

Who cares? Just put a prepackaged soap deal in the silverware tray.
