Is your Frigidaire dishwashers soap cup not opening? Will the soap cup dispenser not close? Learning how to replace a Frigidaire soap cup is actually really easy.

The first thing you want to do is unplug or flip the breaker off so no power is going to the dishwasher.

The nest step is removing the front panel of the dishwasher. It’s really easy. There are two philip head screws in the middle of the inner door liner. Once the two screws are removed the front panel will slide down and off the of the door. There are metal slotted clips on the door that hold it in place. Once you get the two screws off you will see the slots in the outer door panel and the two hooks on the door frame.

Now that the door is removed the dispenser can be accessed. You will see 6 screws on the soap cup and a plug and play type connector on the wax motor. Unplug the connection at the brown wax motor. Now three screws on the top of the dispenser and three on the bottom. The dispenser will now push through the door so it can be replaced.

The new dispenser comes with a new gasket already installed. Press the new dispenser assembly back into the door from the inside. Screw the 6 screws back into the dispenser and plug the wires back onto the two prongs of the brown wax motor. This is a fairly simple job if you are handy.

  1. Hi, mine wasn’t opening so I used your diagnostic tip and was able to confirm that the soap cup was getting power and not opening up. You the man!
