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
