Customer Question
The soap dispenser on...

The soap dispenser on our Whirlpool dishwasher is broken. Is it possible to buy and install a new part ourselves?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Where can I find the model number?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

We'd like to if at all possible. The machine is about 7 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is the dispenser a separate part or part of the whole control mechanism?
