Customer Question
Our soap dispenser on...

Our soap dispenser on our dishwasher does not open during the cycle. It closes with the soap in it, does not open during the cycle but we can manually open it.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?

SHE33M05UC-48

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

If we can

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

Don't think so

That was a common issue on that model, you just need to replace the soap dispenser assembly they failed all the time. Here is a link to the part and video to change it.
