Worn out spring on detergent release box lid
First, examine very carefully how the old spring relates to the detergent release box lid. Note that the top of the spring has a square-end upside down "U" . This rests on a small ledge on the detergent box. Also note that on either end of the spring is a straight extension of the spring wire. These two "legs" must rest on the inside of the edge of the detergent box. Second, use a flat blade screw driver to pry the LID hinge pin from the mounting "posts. Remove the pin, first noting the position of the spring. Reassemble the spring on the hinge pin in reverse order. Then snap the lid onto the spring using the two mounting "posts". NOTE: I used a very fine needle nose pliers to move the two spring "legs" behind the detergent box edge after I had mounted the lid. Flip the lid down to test if the spring pressure on the lid can be felt. Harold Kitzmann, Fishersville VA

soap dish door does not always pop open
the plastic pin that retains the spring has a head on one end that hits a plastic stop on the door to keep it from coming out. I used a small grinder and made a flat spot on the head diameter to make it easy to slide out. This is easier than trying to pry the door off the pin at the two retaing snaps. I was conderned these pin retainer clips were brittle and would break off.
Once the pin is slid out, it is a matter to hold the new spring holes in line with the pin. rotate pin so flat side you ground is turned up, so pin will not move out that way. Tiij about an hour

The spring on the detergenet dispenser box door failed and needed replaced
The old spring on the detergent dispenser box door failed and the dispenser door would not pop open at the right time in the wash cycle.

Ordering the new spring was easy on the website. Need dishwasher model number, stock number and serial number.

Hint - Order at least 2 springs! They are not expensive.

I followed the instructions in the video. I could get the spring on the spindle correctly but could not get the two spring prongs to catch to create spring tension on the door without using a thin knife blade to carefully push each prong to where it caught on the dispenser door.

I needed to slide the prongs slowly and carefully to get them to catch on the door. This distorted the spring. That's why you really need two springs. I then used needle nose pliers to pull the latching part of the spring to catch on the inner door. That distorts the spring, too.

So you really need two springs. One spring to learn how to do it and a second one to replace the one you distorted as you learned.

Take care

Now all areas of the dishwasher get cleaned and the soap dispenses correctly every time.

The soap dispenser sometimes has soap left after washing and dishes are not clean. A few times the door of dispenser is not open. Which parts should I replace? Thanks!
For model number 63013003016
PartSelect logo
Hello Ling, Thank you for your inquiry. If the dispenser is not opening and releasing the soap, then check the parts of the dispenser such as the seal, the spring and the lid. The seal is only available as part of the complete dispenser assembly. It could also be caused by the water not being hot enough so we would recommend checking the water circulation pump with heater and make sure that the water going into the dishwasher is hot. You can test the pump with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, we have videos available to assist you. We hope this helps.

Soap dispenser doesn’t open during cycle But when I manually turn the knob through each cycle it opens.
For model number DU810SWPU3
PartSelect logo
Hi Alvin, thank you for contacting us. The issue probably seems to be with the dispenser actuator assembly, part number PS392727. It opens the dispenser cover to release detergent and rinse aid during the dishwashing cycle. If you require assistance to place an order, please contact customer service!
