I have a GE Potscrubber 650 dishwasher and the detergent cup does not open. What could be causing this? How do you remove the cup to check the spring?

Thanks, -Nick

That would depend on the exact model of GE dishwasher you have. ("Potscrubber 650" isn't it)

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** GE dishwasher [model GSD650L-01] and the detergent cup does not open. What could be causing this? **

The dispenser on that model is opened via a lever which runs off a cam on the timer. There could be a problem in that lever, the timer cam but more commonly a problem with the spring attached to the leaver.

You can read a bit about the dispenser on that model at the following link:

** How do you remove the cup to check the spring? **

You don't usually. The dispenser parts are accessed from inside the door.

Thanks- It is running now and opened properly. Those diagrams really helped. The spring was not fitted properly in the groove on the lever

where do I get a diagram on how the spring should fit? Cup won't open because the door was yanked off and the spring has sprung.

There is no guarantee the diagrams discussed apply to whatever make and model of dishwasher you have but you can see them by going to the link I provided in one of my previous replies in this message thread. The text about GE 'Round style dispenser' at that reference has links to the images themselves.
