Question:

The detergent door was not opening during the cycle, so i replaced the whole detergent dispensing unit. The detergent door still does not open. Could it be an electrical issue? If not, any idea what else would cause this?

The chopper was broken, the screen was clogged

Somehow, a wooden chopstick found it's way to the chopper (a small disposal in your dishwasher), and broke the (plastic) rotor. Food was no longer being finely chopped, and was unable to pass through a filter screen. This reduced water pressure, and prevented effective operation of the upper spray arm. It is not difficult to get to the chopper to make the repair. Refer to the guide taped to the backside of the floor panel. Note that the chopper can be accessed through the bottom of the tub itself. Remove the spray tube from the wash module manifold, then twist the manifold CCW to release it. Then, remove attaching screws to the screen, foreign object protector and inlet protector to reach the chopper assembly. I replaced the broken chopper and reversed procedure.

Primary problem door dropped open

I first replaced the door balance kit. I had to unhook the water supply to pull the unit out. I replaced the door balance kit first. The pieces were slightly different than my old parts, but fairly easy to figure out. Also, the spring was off on one side so had to confirm where to reconnect it. That took about 30 minutes. I then took out the racks and installed the chopper. The old one came out easily, but it took about 20 minutes to seat the new chopper properly and then reassemble the lower arm. This part of the repair was about another 30 minutes total. Lastly, I replaced the upper rack adjusters, which had broken a while ago and I had pulled together with nylon straps. The new adjusters have metal screws which should be more durable than the plastic clips used in the original equipment. This part of the job took about another 20 minutes, but was easy to complete. The dishwasher door works like new and the top rack is easier to load with the adjusters working properly again.

Poor water pressure - dishes come out dirty

I unscrewed two plastic covers to get to the chopper. I found out that the blade fell off and could not be put back in place. As a result the filter behind it was all clogged. I replaced the whole thing with the new one and put the plastic covers back in place. The dishwasher works like a charm. The hard part was that the screws have proprietary heads, so it is hard to screw/unscrew them with a regular screwdriver. Other than that the exercise is trivial.
