JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your dishwasher? And have you run a diagnostic test cycle?
Customer: its a Valgjord Ikea built in model
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I have already taken it out, checked the exit pipe, which is clear..reset the system several times

IF I power off, then turn on again, then reset, it seems to work - but this is not sustainable!

are you still there?

Yes im still here.

When it comes up with the i20 code is the dishwasher still full of water?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
hi, no, its empty, apart from a cupful in the bottom under the filter

but its seems not to heat the water at all...either

On a 3hr programme it stops at about 1.5 hours, flashes 20 and beeps until I do something

Ok if its draining the water but still giving the i20 error code then its the pressure sensor thinking there water in there when there isnt.

This is a very common fault on these as they have had an issue with the pressure sensors so they have made a kit for this. You need to replace the pressure sensor, bracket and hose as it all comes part of the kit.

It also comes with fitting instructions as well.

The part number for it is 4055346060

Replace that kit and im sure this will cure the fault from there. As i said its a very common fault on these dishwashers.

would I need to get Ikea to come and do that? Or can any plumber get this kit and fix it?

Well the dishwasher is actually mae by Electrolux so you could give them a bell as they will be able to sort it for you. Or a local repair company will also be able to sort this for you as well.
