This detergent and rinse dispenser with cap may also be known as the dishwasher dispenser assembly and is a part for your dishwasher. The function of this part is to attach to the inside door panel of your dishwasher and hold the dishwasher detergent and rinse in a closed compartment. The manufacturer has redesigned this part and although it may appear different than the original, it will have the same functionality, which is to release the detergent and rinse aid into the dishwasher. To complete this installation, you will need a Phillips screwdriver, and a pair of needle-nose pliers.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Reading the instructions posted, I realized that I only needed to remove the two lower screws on the inside of the dishwasher door. The lower front panel then came off easily. I unplugged the power to the dishwasher. I then removed the six screws holding the dispenser in place, and when loose I unplugged the two wires (I used a flat blade screwdrive to pry them a bit then they slid off -- note the red one was inside, lighter one outside). I put the new part in, put in all but the left screw with the hook. I then plugged the wires in, and fastened the left screw with the hook positioned around the wires. I put the panel back on, fastenet the two screws that hold it in, and plugged the dishwasher back in. It's working beautifully. All in all it was about 20 minutes.

The latch on the soap dispenser got worn out over the past few years on the dishwasher. I tried just puting the detergent into it and running it as usual. The detergent was added Immediatley.. missing the proper timing that would normally dispense it properly. As a result the dishes were not coming out clean and lacked the shiny clean quality we were accustomed to . I ordered the right part, got it quickly and put it in..and were back to doing dishes and having them come out the right way...spotless and clean like they should.
I'm a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids, so I enlisted the help of my oldest son (5 years old) for this job while the 2 little ones were asleep! First we cut the power to the dishwasher, then we removed the 2 bottom screws on the stainless steel front and slid it off to expose the back of the dispenser. We removed the red and white wires from the left side of the dispenser, took out the 6 screws holding the dispenser in place, put in the new dispenser, hooked up the red and white wires (in the right order), and flipped the breaker back on! We ran a cycle to make sure it worked, and it did!! My husband was thrilled! He thought for sure we needed a new dishwasher! :o) Thank you, PartSelect!
Removing two screws on the inside of the door alows the outside panel to slide down and detach. The soap dispenser connects with six screws and two wires. Remove the dispenser through the inside of the door. Replace, reattach and reasseble in 15 minutes.
I foloowed the others who repared the same item. I really appreciated their help and input. The only thing I would add is when they said that you only have to remove the bottom 2 screws on the inside of the dishwasher door they are absolutely correct. But don't look on the very bottom of the door like I did. They are on the inside of the door, facing inside. The bottom screw on each side. Thanks for all the help.
I removed the screws from the inside of the door. There are also tiny screws you have to remove that holds the part onto the door. Then I was able to remove the part, unplug the power receptacles and install the new part. Very simple!!
At first I wasn't sure; I thought I had to buy the inner panel of the door. Considering that I have to minimize expenses I made it a point to tackle the problem myself. I unscrewed the outter panel off the dishwasher door and located the dispenser from inside of the inner door panel.I unplugged the old dispenser,which was damaged, unscrewed it from the panel and removed it. I cleaned any and all debris, dirt and soap scum it had accumilated over the short years we've owned it.Finally; after I prepared the new dispenser for installation, I placed it in position screwed it in and plugged it in, which was slightly tricky because it is pretty snug against the inside door panel. Once installed, I got my older son, 15, to help me screw in the outside panel of the door, and as he held it I screwed it on the the inside panel.I tested it with no dishes inside by pouring just a little detergent in the new dispenser, starting the dishwasher and I stuck around in case there were any leaks or any other possible disaster that could occur.This was exactly one week ago and all is still well. By the way, the person who took my order, I believe her name was Joann, was great. She talked to me making certain I had the right part, which I was unsure of since the diagram on your site was not quite clear. On top of that; I didn't pay for overnight service, yet my part was at my door the next day. I was amazed at the quick service and delivery. Thanks Joann!!!Felipe, Poughkeepsie, NY
1 Removed 2 screws to remove door panel so as to access back of dispenser.2 Unplugged 2 color-coded wires attached to dispenser3 Removed 6 screws attaching the dispenser.Reversed these 3 steps to install new unit.Easy. Don't even think of calling the repairman.
Removed front cover. No instructions so I removed all the screws. Only the bottom 2 need to be removed(1 on each side) then push cover up to unlatch. Remove 2 wires and 6 screws. Replace soap dish unit. reinstall screws and wires. Replace front cover. The hardest part is the front cover.
Took off 2 lower screws and removed trim panel to access dispenser. 6 more screws and i was done.
The actual installation of the dispenser was a breeze. Just unscrew the 6 screws unplug the 2 electrical wires and put the new one in. The problem I had was removing and replacing the front panel of the machine. The metal facing had corroded onto the frame of the door and was difficult to get off. Replacing the door was just as much a pain as it had to be lined up correctly with 4 holes in the frame. Did it in the end everything works great. Cheaper than a whole new machine.
removed screws holding door panel, turned off electricity,removed old part and installed new dispenser, the dishwasher is back in business. Be sure to use the proper screws when putting back the door panel.The instructions for installation were in the new part assembly.Thank You for all your helpPat Johnson
Took off 2 screws and took the old detergent holder off and put the new one on....Very easy...took all of 5 mins
Removed two screws on each side, lower half. Inside, removed six screws. Replaced the assembly and replaced all screws.Not worth the fifty dollars for the part, just to have a door open at the right time to empty soap. Quite a hefty price to pay considering the price of the machine
Received the part quickly and installed it with no problem whatsoever. Have order parts from PartSelect before and have been very happy
