IKEA dishwasher and warranty

I was just looking at an Ikea dishwasher that comes with a 5 year warranty. It's actually in stock locally so I'm tempted to purchase.
Just wondering if anyone here has had experience with Ikea dishwashers and also dealing with Ikea for warranty issues?
Thanks!

We bought two at the same time. They're noisy, cheap inside and don't clean particularly well. One crapped out after about a year and they fixed it without a problem. The other one died completely after 5 years and was glad to see it go. One has been replaced with a Bosch and the other is still limping along sounding like a gold mine washplant

They are made by Whirlpool. The 2 times I had to deal with whirlpool for 2 different stoves was pretty good. IKEA is normally pretty good once you have your receipt.

The one I looked at today looked very much like a Frigidaire model!

We purchased one 7 years ago and still going strong. It’s made by Whirlpool. The warranty was what attracted us.

Prior to the pandemic, we used to run it at night only but now with WFH, we run it at all times during the day. This has become an issue because the thing is so damn quiet that someone or the other in the family ends up opening the door while it’s running. We now place a chair in front of it as a reminder that it’s running.
Isn't it great to live in the 21st century where deleting history has become more important than making it.

We have one now. It’s crazy quiet! Does a great job. We’ve only had it a couple of years but we’re very happy with it.

I guess IKEA is like Sears with Kenmore as far as appliances go: Put out the contract to bid every now and then and see who comes up with the best terms. Could be GE/Haier next or Blomberg/Arcelik or even LG or Samsung.

Theyre made by Whirlpool (or at least at the time of my purchase). Mine turns 4yrs old this July - 1st 2 yrs I maybe used it 10x/yr, since then 2x/wk

It's been fine. Just set it to 1 hr and it's good to go. Make sure to pre-wash your dishes

I wonder how many people would recommend a snow blower that came with advice to shovel most of the snow first before using

And defeats the purpose of conserving energy by limiting use of heated water to boot.

They've consistently used Whirlpool since they started offering appliances in the US and Canada.

At one point, they even printed "Manufactured by Whirlpool Corporation" on the front of the products themselves, right next to the IKEA logo (they do the same for their Roper brand too).

WELL...

I worked for the company and that idiot parent decided to place their kid on top of the drawer of a Malm dresser claimed he wasnt warned that this could hurt his child.

So yeah, common sense isnt so common. We live in a world full of idiots, this Tide pod eating world.
