Yes you put the dishwasher soap in the soap dispenser. Then you close the lid to it. then shut the door and start the dishwasher.

The sump may be full of debris here is how to check it:

ok in the dishwasher you will see you lower spray arm. take it off. now going up the back is the supply tube. you need to pop it off of thed top then the back and turn it clockwise to get it off the motor. after you do that you will see 4 torx screws. take all 4 out and you will be able to remove the fine filter. thats the normally grey piece with all the slots. after you remove the filter you will see two more torx screws. remove them they are for 2 seperate pieces one is the foreigh food seperator and the other is the chopper cover. remove both of them and clean the whole thing out. as yiou are puytting it back together. let me know if you get stuck

It sounds more like a failed pump.
Does it circulate the water while washing dishes?
You might check the junction where the dishwasher connects to your drain under the sink. Often, they empty into the garbage disposal.  The inside of that junction has a tendency to clog with food (especially grease) and the pump of the dishwasher doesn't produce much pressure, it is more designed for volume.

Gina, you probably blew a thermal fuse that sits on the control board. Easy fix. Have your husband first check the wiring to the dishwasher. Remove the toe panel and make sure the wire nut connections are good. If that is ok, he will have to remove the inner door screws to get to the control board. Lift out the inner door. Remove the control board cover, it just snaps off. He will see the thermal fuse on the upper right side. I will attach a photo of what it looks like...Catriver...post back

soap dispensers open electrically, ether with a motor or solenoid. Ether that device is bad or a wiring problem or the control unit.

it would be improbable that you put too tall an item on the top rack every time you wash, but it is also impossible to check without a see thru tub. Just make sure there are no tall items and maybe lower the top rack.
Some dishwashers have the top arm on the bottom of the rack and use a connection in the back when the rack is pushed in. If yours does make sure it isn't deformed and not making properly.

a number of possible issues.
1. door sensor not allowing it to start
2. it is starting but there is no water flowing == water supply or vavle
3. corroded connections = water vavle or other places
4. control unit.

I don't know that I would call it "normal", but it's certainly not surprising. The typical life span of any major appliance is probably in the neighborhood of 12 to 20 years, and electronic components are often the first to fail. Watch for a sale on a new dishwasher (especially a model that may be a year or two old) and dig out your wallet.
