SOURCE: the salt light keeps burning

the salt light is done by a reed switch operated by a float in the salty water. float may be stuck - give softener (where you put in the salt) a tap and also stir the water inside the softener. i assume you have put in enough salt. its not a serious fault

SOURCE: Salt Indicator Light Flashes Permanently On Indesit IDE 750 dishwasher

I've had the same problem on my Indesit (IDL-730, IDL730) and after pouring in salt until full for ages, without the light going out, I finally decided to do the reverse.
I left it to run down the salt over a couple of months, until well empty (not ideal, but I was getting desperate!), and then finally refilled it.
Problem solved - salt error light was no longer on
All I can figure is that a blockage had set in and casued the issue. Leaving it to clear over time sorted it.
Hope this helps in your situation.

Undo that put DISHWASHER salt in not cooking salt.
Make sure the salt well is full of water in it before you put in the salt. Fill salt to top.

Salt reservoir


Yes. The water flows throught the reservoir regardless. The only difference is the salt indicator in the front dash will not lit.

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.

The red light for salt (PC) is on. What does this mean as we do not have the instruction manual. Thanks


Salt Light is connected to the level of hardness of your local water supply. If your water level is very soft (below 4gr/..) then you dont need salt, but the light will stay on. Otherwise need to add salt and the light should go off (if it is working.)

The salt PC light is on....what does it mean


This is just to let you know that the internal water softener needs water-softener salt.

If you do not use the softener (I do not at my house) then the light serves as a convenient on/off light.

The PC light on my Miele dishwasher has been on for a few weeks now, although the dishwasher seems to be functioning normaly. What does this PC light mean?


The PC light is actually where the service tech connects his laptop to test your dishwasher - it should be a PC / Salt light. The light indicates that your salt container is empty

Miele dishwasher film and crust on the inside-


Hard water has this "crust" which are minerals floating around that ionically attach to everything. Some machines from Miele have a water softener inside the machine. Special dishwasher softener Salt is added that cleans minerals off Xeolite beads. When cleaned they attract mineral ions. If you don't use the salt then the beads fill up on minerals until they can't hold any more minerals. The salt is used in the regeneration cycle. It washes the mineral ions off the xeloite replacing them with salt ions. As new water enters the machine mineral ions slowly knock off the salt ions and attach themselves to the beads again. This whole process keeps the crust off the dishes and the walls of the machine.
Use a dishwasher cleaner that removes scale. And if you don't have a salt light on your Miele you can instead purchase soap tablets that contain water softener built in. Miele dishwasher tablets have it. You can order them online or call Miele.
