I have a Whirlpool Dishwasher Model GU2500. When we run the dishwasher, we find the soap on the bottom, unused. It seems to be dispensing the soap at the wrong time. Wondering what the possible problem and solution could be. Does it make sense to just replace the dispenser and if so, is it a cheap part and easy enough for a novice to replace? Also, where is a good place to find the part?
I would remove the covers in the bottom and clean it out with a shop vac to be sure its not getting clogged with anything that could be blocking the water intake. Then check it in mid wash and be sure it is spraying all dishes before I replaced anything. I cleaned mine out and every little bit I run a few cups of vineager through it to help clean it out as well.
