Do you need to put salt in the dishwasher. If using tablets detergent ...where to put it ?


A lot of dishwashers do not have salt dispensers. If it does, the salt is added to a container which has a lid on the base (floor) on the inside under the bottom basket. Unscrew the lid and add the salt. Use normal pool salt. It is the same as "special dishwasher salt" that you pay a lot for. When full, the salt will last for 12 to 18 months. Most machines that have a salt container, also have a warning light on the panel to let you know it needs refilling. Dishwasher tablets do not add salt to the machine. Make sure you wipe up any salt that you may have spilt on the base of the machine, it will stain or rust the cabinet.

How do i add salt to miele incognito?


There is a cap inside the dishwasher on the bottom right side, unscrew it and dump a full box of salt in. Clean up any spilled salt and run a rinse and hold cycle to remove any salt residue. Miele recommends using their own salt, available online at www.mieleusa.com or at a local Miele dealer. They don't recommend using water softener salt or table salt. For more help call their tech support at 800.999.1360, they are very helpful.

Aquarius DWF32 and dealing with water softner


Good idea to check levels yourself, but wear rubber gloves as dishwasher salt will leave your hands very sore, simply remove cover from salt tank, using a wooden spoon handle or similar check salt level and refill if required, replace tank lid, never wait for warning lights, they may never come on, good luck.

Where do i put the salt


Hello Maria,

The salt goes in the salt compartment in the base of the washing compartment. Unscrew the lid of the salt compartment (counter-clockwise), pour in salt until the compatment is full or nearly full then screw the lid back on firmly, but do not overtighten it.

If the dishwasher is new and you are using it for the first time, pour about 1 litre of cold clean water into the salt compartment before adding the salt. If you spill any salt or the water spills over the top of the salt compartment, it will wash/drain away the next time you use the washer.

The most important thing is to only use dishwasher salt. The salt is used for water-softening and only salt sold specifically for dishwashers can be used for this purpose.

The picture above is from a Bosch dishwasher. You may have another brand or model of dishwasher, but the salt compartment will still be in the base of the washing compartment and will have a cap which you unscrew as above.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know the brand and model number of your dishwasher.

Regards,
BElectric

Just moved into a house with fitted NEFF dishwasher, never had one before and no manual left. Where do salts go? Thanks


Hi there,

The salt goes in the salt compartment in the base of the dishwasher. Open the door and pull the lower basket out. You should then be able to see a cap near the front-left corner of the base of the dishwasher. Unscrew this cap (anti-clockwise) and fill the compartment with salt all the way to the top - or with as much salt as you have in the packet - then screw the cap back on firmly, but do not over-tighten it. The salt compartment will (or should!) be full of water and some will spill out as you fill it with salt. This is totally normal and not indicative of any problem.

Do not use any type of salt which is not sold specifically for dishwashers. The dishwasher can be used without salt but it is not advised and may result in a white film being left on your cutlery, glassware and/or dishes.

It may also be possible to provide a user manual in PDF format which you can download, but I would need to know the model number. If you don't know the model number Most Neff/Bosch dishwashers have the model number laser-etched into the stainless-steel at the top of the inner-door or the rim of the washing compartment. Please click on the link below for a guide to locating the model number of your dishwasher. (Neff is a Bosch owned brand)

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you would like the manual or need further assistance.

I have just purchased a new Miele dishwasher. I filled the salt reserve as required but whenever the cleaning cycle finishes it reads Add salt! The salt reserve is already full! Please could you...


Hi Carol
You MUST add water into the softener reserve chamber, normally water first then salt.
Dont worry its a common mistake.

Dishwasher is showing low dishwasher salt soon after putting dishwasher salt. why?


Do not bother. Continue using the m/c. If the inlet water quality is good do not worry. This is a sensor sensing fault, even if the salt is fully loaded.

If the wash quality is good without salt continue.

Otherwise add salt at regular intervals. Trying to fix this fault will lead to another and so on. Now machine works for you continue enjoying!

Where do I add the salt in the dishwasher


Hi,

Before i provide you with the solution, Read the below one :-

CAN I USE ORDINARY TABLE SALT?
No. Table, cooking, rock and sea salts may contain additives that can actually increase water hardness. Also, the fine consistency of some of these salts mean they are likely to clog when wet. Always use granular dishwasher salt because it is very pure and is the right consistency for use in your machine.
Granular salt is the ONLY type of salt that should be used to regenerate the softener. Be aware that some varieties of ‘dishwasher salt’ use Dead Sea salt. This variety may contain minute insoluble organic matter that may adversely affect the resin within your softener over time. If you are in doubt about the origins of the salt, ask the retailer or manufacturer.

Now, look at the Video :-

http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-load-a-dishwasher-for-the-best-results

The steps also include where you need to add Salt in the Dishwasher.You need to be careful with the amount. On few dishwashers, you would have an indication light. Make sure that it should be appropriate.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
