Whirlpool dishwasher dispensing soap too soon
« on: May 12, 2020, 09:40:46 PM »

Hi,

I have a Whirlpool model WDF775SAYB1 that is about seven years old. In recent months the soap dispenser has started opening within thirty seconds of any wash cycle starting. After some research I decided to replace the detergent dispenser. However, it is still doing the same thing. Any tips of where I should go from here?

Thanks in advance,
K-Bert

The control board would be the culprit. That is what supplies voltage to dispenser solenoid.

Thanks for the reply!

I was afraid of that. Still cheaper than a new dishwasher...

Cheers,
