Dishwasher Soap Door Not Opening


For the past several months, I have had an intermittent problem with the detergent door not opening. Most of the time, it worked fine. But maybe 1 time in 10, it would fail to open or it would be open, but most of the detergent was still sitting in there as a soggy mess.


Doh!

Make sure the whole area in and around the soap dispenser is clean, and free of buildup of soap, lime scale etc.

I've checked for soap and scale many times. Only today I finally thought to check for cutting boards! Yeah. I feel dumb.
