Dishsoap doesn't need a hechser.

I heard differently. Don't ask me why, I'm not a Rav either. Finish used to have a hechsher. Many boxes still do and are still good to use if it has it. I bought a lot of boxes at Target that still has the hechsher. Last time I was there it still had it.

Truth is it's news to me, we always just buy the one with a hechsher.

According to Rabbi Shusterman it does need a hechsher.

I personally always wonderd why it has/needs a hechsher. It is possible that dishwasher detergent is more complex than dishwashing soap because dishwasher is possibly a kli rishon with heat etc.
 I can tell you that this is mentioned in Shulchan'O/ nosei kelim:  soap in olden days made with fats etc... dont remember where or what the bottom line is... Ask a LOR if there is reason to be Machmir

Can someone move this thread to "Kosher Hechsherim Master Thread"?

I just wanted to update everyone, I just asked the CRC about Finish Dishwasher Pellets and they said it doesn't need a hechser although some may contain gelatin it is still ok. However please ask your LOR!
