The detergent door on my Maytag dishwasher wont open during the wash cycle. What could be the problem?

Shortymn,

You most likely have a weak, inoperative, wax motor,

Part number: AP4110779
Part number: AP4110779


You'll need to remove the inner door liner, and check the wiring and switch.

You may also want to check for 120 VAC to the wax motor from the timer, with a multimeter, to verify the timer circuitry is proper.

Thanks, and Good Luck,
:) :) :)
