I just need a rinse-aid cap, for my dishwasher as it came off and melted. Is this available separately or do i have to buy the whole kit?? cheers

Hi Suze, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately it looks like the cap is not sold separately from the whole dispenser. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Had repair man order dispenser for Electrolux dishwasher. He installed it. First wash the new dispenser didn't release the soap (finish). Try a second time it still didn't work. What do i do


Hi Linda, Thank you for your inquiry. The detergent dispenser is designed to release detergent into the dishwasher tub during the wash cycles and will typically have two compartments, an unsealed compartment for prewash and a sealed compartment for the main wash cycle. Verify that the dispenser is not simply clogged with caked on detergent and give it a good cleaning if necessary. Also check to make sure that the cover for the dispenser will open easily and is not damaged or broken. Check the release mechanism for worn or defective parts and replace if necessary. The rinse aid dispenser is designed to release rinse aid into the tub during the rinse cycle. Verify that the dispenser is full and is not clogged with detergent and verify that the cap is adjusted properly. The dispensers may be operated by either a mechanical devise or by a bi-metal release or wax motor devise. The rinse aid cap could be the reason why your dishwasher is not releasing rinse aid. The rinse aid dispensing cap is located on the inner door panel of your dishwasher. The rinse aid cap could be loose and may just need to be refitted, but could also be warped or damaged from the heat of the water in the dishwasher. Remove the cap from the door and inspect it for signs of melting or warping and replace if need be. If your dishwasher is not dispensing detergent, the spring and hinge pin on the dispenser door could be the problem. The dispenser door is spring loaded, and is held in the closed position by a catch. Check that the spring and pin are not bent or broken and replace if required. If the catch is not releasing the door, then you should inspect the timer, the bi-metal release or the wax motor. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Water pump went up, soap dispenser wouldn't close and a little rust on the lower rack.

Easy repair. pulled dishwasher out, disconnected electrical wire for safety but don't think it was required since the breaker was off (turn it on and flip the breaker for verification). Pulling the pump and replacing was easy, soap dispenser, same, easy. First time I ever worked on a dishwasher, simple. Parts were all OEM parts and most importantly were the correct parts I needed. Way cheaper than replacing the unit and I saved $150 on an hours worth of work vice paying the service guy.
