My Repair & Advice
What an easy fix! Ordered new soap dispenser from AppliancePartsPros and received it within 24 hours. Unplugged the dishwasher from the wall socket(if yours is wired direct you'll have to trip the breaker). Removed 12 screws from around inside of the door(you don't have to remove the 2 closest to the latch) and dropped the outside side skin off. Removed the 3 electrical plugs(mark where the 2 on the left go so you don't get 'em backwards putting it back together. Removed the 6 screws and brackets holding the dispenser in the door. Now it gets just a bit tricky, I used 4 plastic putty knife style spreaders to hold the metal catches up off the tabs and pushed the dispenser out. You could probably use screwdrivers or regular putty knives, etc, I just happened to have those plastic spreaders like are used to smooth body putty on metal. Once you get the old one out you're pretty much home free. Just pop the new dispenser in, replace the brackets and screws, plug in the three electrical plugs(don't forget how the 2 on the left go), Put the skin back on the door, and plug her in(reset breaker), you're all ready to wash dishes again. And, the whole experience only takes about 20 minutes assuming the 3 year old doesn't carry off a couple screws and the dog doesn't chew the electrical plugs. I estimate I saved around $120.00 doing this myself.
