Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Whirlpool DWF 407 IKEA Dishwasher serious problem.

\015 Hello.I hope someone can help us with this weird behavior of our dishwasher: It is a Whirlpool DWF 407 that we bought at IKEA 4 years ago. It worked fine for 3 years without having used it more than 3 times a week.The machine first started about a year ago to not finish cycles (after 80% - beeping twice and blinking LED - usually before pumping water) I managed to bridge the problem by running the ''END'' program that pumps off the water. This became frequent after a while.Next the machine did not start cycles at all (on all programs the same): It pumped for 20 seconds, then again beeping twice and blinking. I managed to bridge this problem by pouring 5-10 liters of water into the machine before starting the program (so the pump would have something to pump) This worked only on the ''rapid'' program, but at least it would start cleaning. Then the program would run its usual 80%. I still would have to ''manually'' finish the cycle by running the END program. Now it does the same on all programs - even the ''END'' program - with or without additional water poured inside before: It pumps for 20 seconds, then beeping twice and the LED blinking - that's it. What can we do? Is it a mechanical or electronical problem? Getting a technician and replacing parts does not seem an option as the price for that will get close to buying a new machine. I apretiate any kind of suggestions. Than you very much! Max\015

Answers :

A worn film capacitor on the circuit board is the cause of the problem which often manifests itself after several years using the dwf 407. Replacing the film capacitor on the circuit board is the solution! Such a capacitor costs about GBP 2. The removal of the circuit board that is in the door is not very difficult, four torque screws along the inside top of the door (not the two for the door lock) a click system in which the print is stuck in the door. On the print are a few connectors with wires to loosen-take picture or mark them for reassembly purposes. There are several types of DWF 407, sometimes the print is slightly different. But the culprit is always the big gray block. The value that you must have is 250/275 V 1,5UF. Many electronics stores have them or can order them. Soldering you can do yourself if you have some experience or ask your local handyman. It is not very difficult, you have plenty of space on the board and only two feet soldering required. After that my dishwasher was as new at the fraction of the price
To change the capacitor is exactly the right way to make your DWF 407 running again due to the problem mentioned above.
It costs about 2 Euros and takes you 10 minutes.

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers

We have a IKEA Whirlpool DWF 407 dishwasher that suddenly stopped pumping in water. It's just stuck in a loop where it sounds like the water pump is dryheaving and soon after it starts smelling a bit burnt and smells a bit like a battery. I've checked the overflooding breaker and there's no water down there and I can hear the switch turning on if I move the floater upwards. Also checked so that the water hose up on top of the machine is securely fixed. Any ideas?

Hi I am in an emergency situation with an ikea whirlpool dishwasher. I have no idea what model it is since it's built in and I can't find the manual in my rental apartment. The machine works normally until the part where it's supposed to pump the water out after rinsing. At this point it starts to beep, once, and then 3 times. On and on and on. If I open it, there is water stagnated there. If I try to turn it off and back in, it will go through a whole new program and then I get the same problem

Whirlpool Dishwasher ADG 450. Start as normal and it keeps intermittentlly stopping and starting. Washs / drains fine, but sometimes cycle seams to last for a couple of hours. I think it is four beeps when it is stopping and then immediately starts again. We had a problem months ago where as the sink was draining into the dishwasher out pipe, so dishwasher wasn't draining / filling up. Fixed the problem by turning the pipe the other way so water couldn't flow that way - but I don't know if that
