KUDS40FVSS4 dishwasher. It's about six years old but has seen limited use. Detergent dispenser is not opening. It is completely clean and not sticking. I've put my multi-meter on the two dispenser terminals and get a reading of 0.00 (continuity). Based on what I read in this thread, 0.00 is a correct reading.

Info on this page suggests the problem could be a faulty bi-metal actuator. Where do I find and how do I test this? Is it internal to the dispenser sub-assembly? Do I need to remove and disassemble the dispenser to locate and test this?

It seems I'm down to either a faulty bi-metal actuator or a faulty control board?

Thanks.

For the sake of those with the same problem; I replaced the detergent dispenser, even though it seemingly tested good with a multi-meter. No change. Dispenser does not open during the wash cycle.

I replaced the the control board with a remanufactured unit and the dispenser now works as intended.
