The soap door on my Kitchenaid (Whirlpool) Dishwasher does

Resolved Question:

The soap door on my Kitchenaid (Whirlpool) Dishwasher does not open during the cleaning cycle. I replaced the controller board (which fixed my last dishwasher with this problem) but the door still stays shut. Any ideas on what else to replace?

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you. Okay, you are on the right track however, you need to replace the dispenser itself. On the back of the dispenser is a "was motor" which is what allows the door to open when it gets the signal from the control board. If that motor goes bad the dispenser will not open. The part number for the dispenser is W10224431. I am here for further assistance and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.
