    Ikea integrated dishwasher 7th Apr 15 at 6:55 PM
    Just back from Ikea where I'm buying a kitchen, but want to get appliances elsewhere.

    That seems fine for everything but the integrated dishwasher - apparently Ikea only supply doors for their own dishwashers now. I can't integrated doors for everything else.

    Anyone bought an Ikea kitchen recently who has got around this?

    Or does anyone have an Ikea dishwasher? Is it good?

    (Ikea has changed its design system of late so if you fitted an Ikea kitchen a while ago it won't be the same).

    Ikea now provide a mounting kit with some sliding hinges that you can use to mount a method door onto any dishwasher. It's called Behjälplig (part number 502.913.70). It seems they aren't always in stock, but try asking at your local Ikea store, even if they don't advertise it.

    As you will soon realise though, the design isn't great. All the weight is held up by two small plastic fittings. Drop the door too early and the fall will break them. Ikea knows about the problem, but the only solution they have is to order a new kit and replace them. That'll get old real quick, so I have tried 3d-printing a replacement. I haven't received it yet, so can't attest to its quality, but presumably the plastic used by 3d-printers is quite tough, so it might work. If not, it's also possible to have it printed in steel, so that'll be my next step. I would post a link, but the software won't allow me, but do a search for it on shapeways.

    Hope that helps some of you.

    Use any dishwasher in Ikea Metod
    A Dutch company has manufactured a kit to solve the problem. Google adapt-r to see it. Costs £79.99 but solves the problem. The door panel carries a separate pivot point mounted well below where the actual door pivots and is fastened just at the very top to the dishwasher door on a sliding arrangement. Door panel pivots well below the door hinge and slide up and beyond the top of the door when opened. Clever. I am fitting a Beko dishwasher at £199 but the Ikea unit is £375. Money saved!
