Re: Some white detergent wet "mud" remains in GE's manual soap dispenser. No excuse.
It probably is a little more expensive (this site says you'll save $1.37 per year using powder over liquid). With a newer dishwasher, you're likely paying less in energy and water per load. And with hard water, I'll bet you can easily get away with using only half or 3/4 the amount of liquid in the dispenser if you put in a teaspoon of calgon. Walmart sells 32 oz powder of the stuff for $4.76, and I'll bet it will last you a couple years.
Put the powdered detergent on craigslist or donate it to a church or school.
Yeah, not everything new is a 1:1 replacement. Look at HE washing machines and the detergent they require, and now even the gasoline you get at the pump requires an additive if you use it in certain small engines!
Thank you, Diana. I shall have to free four more hours from work to be home for your technician to visit and again tell me that nothing is wrong? - For your technician to inform that our water temperature at the faucet, (he measured 123 F.) is not hot enough - though your Owners Manual indicates 120 F. to 150 F.? -To offer no explanation why, upon completion of the entire WASH and RINSE cycles, some detergent "mud" remains in the manual soap dispenser. NOT WASHED OUT OF THE DISPENSER?

I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified. It ain't just soot, it's paydirt. "I swear, wherever Gift goes, argument follows." -Youtube comment
Maybe try to fix it. Maybe it was mounted in wrong place. You need to check well inside.
It is correctly installed. I even removed 16 inches of 1/2-inch copper pipe from the sink faucet hot water pipe connected to the previous GE dishwasher.
We draw hot water to the sink before turning this GE dishwasher on. We also turn on theated water function.
Even if off spec, the wet powdered soap "mud" should have been washed out of the fully open dispenser.
I'm starting to wonder if the longer pre-cycle is giving more time for the powder to pack into the dispenser. So when the pre-wash cycle starts, water is gently running down the inside of the door. As that cycle runs for 10 or 15 minutes, some of the water might be wetting the powder, cooling, and then turning it into a thick sludge. By the time the door opens, a cement-like mass has to be rinsed out of the cup. And as pointed out earlier, your pump is likely not providing enough pressure to melt it and circulate with force.
Just a theory.
But if this is upsetting you to the point of losing sleep, I'd honestly try a couple runs with liquid detergent. That might solve all your problems.
