Technika dishwasher does not start

Can't seem to find the model unfortunately. When it is turned on the green 'on' light comes on and the red 'salt' light comes on, but when I press the start button, nothing happens - no light and it feels like it doesn't activate (if you know what I mean?). My two year old has a habit of pressing the buttons. I haev tried to turn it off at the power for 30 seconds, to use the start button to reset the cycle, to push all drawers in properly, etc, but nothing seems to work.

SOURCE: i'm not able to reset my dishwasher Whirlpool ADG795

Sounds like you are in the testing/diagnostic mode. You can exit the program by holding the buttons, or simply unplug the unit for an hour, in meantime of being unplugged, press and hold the function or power button for 5 seconds, then wait 1/2 hour more, then plug back in and you should be good. If by chance the machine didn't reset, you can contact the manufacture for codes.

How much salt do I need to use; we live in Cornwall water VERY soft have never put salt in b4.


your problem is not the salt, water in cornwall is not soft either, soft water is actually good for your dishwasher... soft water in cornwal is from rain but not from pipes or wells...

i assume this is dishwasher as this question is in dishwasher section. you state that you never put salt before - and why you should put it in now?!? if idea sound st00pid to you - probably it is...

red light indicates that something is wrong, i would start in case of dishwasher with through cleaning of drain filters and drain pump, checking sensors on the doors and injectors, checking seals, then run empty on full cycle and see if anything changes, cannot provide detailed instructions as you did not give any data. i would suggest google it "howto check whateveryourmodelis function free", words howto and free are keywords,whatever you put between them is a question.

now, to have your question answered, you need to state it correctly:

1. what manufacturer
2. what model
3. year of manufacturing
4. what it seem to be a problem
5. what did you try

hope this little intro will help you to solve the problem by yourself, do not forget to vote...

Where in USA do you buy "dishwasher salt"?


Unless you have hard water it is not necessary to use the dishwasher salts. We are in an area with very soft water, just pretend the red light is not there and wash as usual. Same for drying agent, we don't use it and the machine still works even though the lights are on. We actually had a repair person come out, the company we bought the dishwasher from were willing to give us a new one based on my saying it didn't work without salts. Needless to say I felt like an idiot when he came. The manual that comes with the unit should be better written.... There is a delay between turning the power on and the machine starting which was the biggest reason I thought it was not working without the salts.

What do these mean on a zanussi dishwasher model DE 6854


The top light is apparently to indicate that the salt (!) has run out.

The bottom light is apparently to indicate that rinse aid has run out.

For the record, that seems to be a Zanussi DE-6854 dishwasher, and I found the manual here: (link)


"Special salt can be added in one of two ways: 1) If you are using dishwasher detergent that already contains salt, the detergent including the salt is placed in the detergent compartment. - In this case the water softener must manually be set to 1 and electronically to 1 to ensure that the special salt is taken from the detergent container only. 2) If you are using dishwasher detergent and salt separately, the special salt is to be put into the salt container. - In this case the water softener must manually be set to 1 or 2 and electronically between 1 and 5 (depending on the water hardness in your area) to ensure that the special salt is taken from the salt container only. Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener. Only fill with salt just before starting one of the washing programmes. This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have been spilt, remaining on the bottom of the machine for any period of time, which may cause corrosion." (Page 6)

"Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance." (Page 7)

The manual also explains how to turn the Rinse Aid light off permanently if you do not wish to use rinse aid.



Good luck!

My miele g680 dishwasher did have a flashing intake/drain I cleaned it seemed to be working fine, then everytime I try to start it the softener light comes on with no further washing activity.


that is just an indicator that your salt is low. it will stay on until you refill the water softener with softener salt. it will not affect the dishwasher to run it without the salt. the water for your final rinse will not be softened.
