Detergent Caked in the Dipsenser

Why is Detergent Remaining in the Dishwasher Dispenser

  • If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher. 
  • Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser. Do not load large items in front of the dispenser.
