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: problems with my bosch dishwasher

there should be no salt getting into the wash cavity. if you are sure that it is leaving salty water on the items then either the salt cap is loose/damaged or the regeration system is faulty-this is an expensive fix.

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.

SOURCE: dishwasher does not clean the dishes properly

Hi

First of all please check the Water temperature by using a thermometer inside the dishwasher to measure the water temp. It should be as close to 125 degree F to 140 degree F as possible. Now try using the temperature boost feature if your dishwasher is equipped with this cycle feature and check if this will help your wash ability issues.

Now check the Powder soap by making sure that you store your soap in a dry environment and it is not stale and clumping together. Possibly try a different detergent like a liquid or gel. Also, make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.

To check the proper filling dishwasher will fill with water up to and around the heating element. If water is more below the heating element, you may have low water pressure or a problem with the fill valve. Try & listen if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
For low water pressure, try to clean the screen at the entrance of the fill valve, sometimes the fill valve can fail and not allow the proper water into the dishwasher and may need to be replaced. And, check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks

Low water fills are a very common trouble maker with today's dishwasher.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Rylee

The door leaks on my Diplomat HJA 8640 DISHWASHER. I have changed the door seals with no luck


Malcolm,

Good for you replacing those seals. Not trivial, I suspect.

Does your DW have a positive latch closure or does it just close without a latch?

If the opening of your unit has become distorted due to gradual settling, even a new seal won't work properly. Look carefully and make sure the unit is "square" in the enclosure. If not, use the leg adjusters to correct the situation.

Also, when you replaced the seal, you no doubt cleaned the door thoroughly, since debris can accumulate (especially along the bottom of the door) and interfere with closure.

Use a flashlight for a thorough visual inspection!

WONT WASH CLEAN ALWAYS RESIDUE LIKE SAND ON GLASSES ETC. THAT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO EVEN REMOVE BY HAND WASH ENOUGH SALT AND RINCE AID ALSO CLEAN FILTER EACH TIME NO OBSTRUCTION IN PUMP FILTER...


use CLR to remove any build up and then use LEMI-SHINE (walmart in dishsoap aisle) for the cleaning of your dishes. Works great for me as i have the worst well water on the planet.

Dishes are cloudy and covered with a film when done


Refill your SALT container with 1kg of dishwasher salt.
Salt reduces hardness in water -and increases cleaning efficiency. If you have a little furr build up in your kettle - you need salt in your dishwasher to work properly.

If you do use salt, it may be the salt reservoir is blocked with caked salt.

Dishwasher not cleaning properly


Hi,

If I got the issue correct your dishwasher has stopped cleaning properly.

As advised by an Frigidaire engineer that there is not enough salt in the dishwasher & that is what causes the sand like residue on dishes. sometimes even when you use an all in 1 dishwasher tablet this may still not contain enough salt for the hardness of the water in your area. Using salt regular helps keep the dishwasher clean.

I am sure this would help you:

God Bless.
