Hello! I've got a new Whirpool dishwasher, where cover latch doesn't hold the cover of the soap dispenser for some reason. So, the cover of dispenser cannot close. The cover latch number AP3130817 looks very similar to mine. Will it work for my dishwasher model? Will it fix the problem?
Thank you in advance!
Answer Hi Olga. There is a latch kit part # 676413. Kit for soap cup door. Includes detergent latch and snap. The lid spring is part # 8066018. The dispenser completer kit part # 4387043. The complete dispenser part # 8052027. As you are in the inner door /timer area, make sure all mechanisims are timmed correctly. The timer actuator part # 8193646 needs to be together with the timer in the off position. Thank You.
I need answer on how to install the reciever part of the soap door latch kit. It is not the same as the original part, but I know I ordered the correct part number.

I have purchased and new door and spring, but still cannot get the door to spring open like it used to do. I keep trying to find a close up picture of how the spring and door connect, but can't find that either. What is going wrong. The door will not self open, it just sits there when it is not latched.
Answer Hello Meandme. There are different holes along the side of the dishwasher frame that the springs can attach to. You can set the tension of the springs by using the different holes. This way you can set the door to how you want it to operate. We do not have any pictures other than the parts diagram page. Hope this helps.
