Replacing soap dispenser

We are wondering how to replace the soap dispenser in our Kenmore dishwasher, model 66513742K601 since it doesn't tell in the manual.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. It is always an inconvenience when we experience an issue with a major appliance like this Kenmore dishwasher. That latch component is not available as a separate replacement part. You will need to replace the entire dispenser assembly (part W10224428) to fix that problem. You can order that part from this page: Dispenser Assembly for Kenmore Dishwasher Model 665.13742K601 .

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others. Wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

Here is the installation procedure for the detergent dispenser:

  1. Disconnect electrical power to the dishwasher (turn off the breaker).
  2. Open the dishwasher door and remove the screws that secure the outer door panel to the dishwasher door frame (see image below). Remove the outer door panel from the door frame.
  3. Remove the screw that secures the dispenser shield and remove it from the dispenser.
  4. Disconnect the wire harness connectors from the detergent dispenser.
  5. Remove the screws that secure the dispenser assembly to the inner door liner.
  6. Bend the two locking tabs at the top and bottom of the dispenser assembly up away from the dispenser body. Lift the dispenser assembly out of the inner door liner.

Replace the old assembly with the new one and reverse the procedure to reassemble the dishwasher.

If you decide that you do not feel comfortable repairing this problem yourself, you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Click here to schedule service online at the Sears Home Services web site. Be sure to take advantage of that 20% discount coupon that Sears provides when service is set on line. You will need to print this coupon out on your computer's printer and give it to your technician upon arrival on the day of service.

If you have any follow-up questions, please continue our conversation on this existing thread.
