I am experiencing problems with my Ikea whirlpool dishwasher. When I start it it runs like normal for about 15 minutes, then it just stops (the power lamp is still lighted). This happends on all programs.
When I open it there is hot water in the machine. The soap container has emptied also. I suspect that it is a problem with draining the water, because there are no problems when filling the machine with water. Is it correct that water is supposed to be drained about 15 mins. into a program?
I have checked and cleaned the filters and there are no visible objects blocking the flow of water. Could it be a problem with the pump that is supposed to drain the water? Would that scenario be causing similar symptoms?

Re: Dishwasher stopping mid program
Sometimes machines stop to heat the water. does your machine ever start again? if it does not start on its own, it could be a time issue, or a heater element issue. if it calls for heat and it never heats, it will never run. if it ever drains, then the issue is not the pump. its a logic board. good luck mark

i found this out.
The reason for the dishwasher to stop mid cycle is that the thermal fuse is shorting out because it is either fouled, dirty, broken, or loosely connected. If your dishwasher is older, the thermal fuse is used as a safety switch to stop the motor and circuit board when the dishwasher gets too hot.

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?
