Dishwasher detergent dispenser will not open during wash cycle
You will need some skill with tools and knowledge of how your dishwasher operates. First, you will need to remove the back or front panel on the door. This will depend on the kind of dishwasher you have. When opened, look for a metal or plastic arm coming from the dispenser to a motor or gear. This is usually the problem and can be purchased from this site.

Trying to connect a water supply to my dishwasher. How tight is the elbow connection supposed to be? Should it still be able to swivel?
Depends on the type of washer/seal on the coupling. If it's rubber, or rubber type material, then you shouldn't really be able to turn it once the coupling is tightened. However, if it is a ptfe/firm plastic then it MAY be possible to move it with some force.
Firstly, ensure that you do have a washer in the coupling. Sometimes they stick to the appliance when being dismantled, and may fall off when being moved.
I would recommend tightening firmly by hand (those with gorilla hands need not apply). Then turn on the isolating valve on the supply, and monitor the coupling for a few minutes. If you see water appear, you know what to do! Tighten it up some more.
