I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model DU8500XX-3 that I'm

Customer Question

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher model DU8500XX-3 that I'm having a detergent door opening issue. It hit & misses opening the door during running, but if I check it by turning the timer with the door open, all is good, each time & the door pops open. I've checked the lower rack, it's in correctly, otherwise the door won't close. I've taken the door apart & checked door springs & pieces, all good there. Is the soap door suppose to only open part way or all the way up with the frt door closed? The reason I ask this, is it doesn't seem to be enough room for the soap door to open the way the dish rack bars are...Any ideas to give me?

Is the rack in backwards? Is this a new problem?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If you read my original question you wouldn't be asking if the rack is in backwards. Yes, this is a new problem!
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

I did read your original question and about 90% of the time it is caused by the backwards installation of the rack. Someone else may be able to help you, good luck.
