Cannot find waterlevel switch in Whirlpool DWF 406

DWF 406 sometimes leaks because of waterlevel that gets too high. Pump is working correctly.

    There are more problems than one: Waterlevel too high; temperature cannot be adjusted, stays at 60 and sometimes detergent tablet does not dissolve completely.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool DWF

Most of the time when this happens you have a bad NTC (Feeler) device. It is the thing that looks like a finger sticking up near the sump. (it is a twist fit from underneath)

SOURCE: NO WATER IS PUMPED UP INTO THE MACHINE

Check the fill switch on the inside of the dishwasher. It should be located on left front bottom of inside. This gets stuck alot.

DWF 415 Ikea Whirlpool Dishwasher has constant green blinking light. Drain pump works ok (as it will pump out a jug of water if I tip it into it!) but no water comes in. Cycle stops about 30 seconds after thre is no more water to pump. Any ideas on how to fix?

Anyone got an answer to this, as I have exactly the same fault.

Dishwasher appears to switch on OK, then after a short time (20 secs?) the pump noise stops and the green light flashes - it seems to e a sequence of 7 flashes, then stop... 7 flashed then stop.

The sequence could indicate a fault detected?

Anyone know anything about these units from IKEA, made by Whirlpool?

Thanks!

I have some problems with a Whirlpool DWF 406 dishwasher: The other day, my wife complained about it not finishing a program (just stopped and started bleeping). I saw a post at this forum where it said to...


We have the same problem. The dishwasher is 10 years old. In one of the German forums they said that usually it's because the sieve ahead of the membrane has a fine layer of sludge and the pump cannot pump out the dirty waste water. They said that you have to dismantle the sieve, clean it thoroughly, re-install it, and it should work just like it always did.

Whirlpool DWF 407 IKEA Dishwasher serious problem.


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

Washer is leaking from the bottom?


You hit the jackpot with this question. Could be almost anything and everything. Remember, water is everywhere in a washer. Could be the pump, or discharge hose, or interconnect hose , or outlet from the tub, or overflow(on some models), or waterlevel sensor tube, or fill valve, or washer hot/cold inlet connections, or aerator fill nozzle, or water level switch allowing water too hi, or, or, or, or....., well you get the idea. Good luck, Macgivor
