Get an aqua vac and suck out the water (with the dissolved detergent)from the salt container. Refill it with water and repeat the process couple of times. Fill the container with water and salt and it should be fine. Good luck !!

Wash the dishes by hand and view them again 1 hour later. If the dishes are still cloudy it's too late you have been running in hard water for years and etched the dishes. Salt only regenerates the Xeolite beads inside the DW. They collect minerals until they can no longer hold more, then the DW washes the minerals off the beads with the salt. Check if the DW is set correctly to the appropriate water hardness of your town. READ THE OWNERS MANUAL. PS> 1. You can't use regular salt. 2. Is the salt dry? Salt must be added into water so it creates solution (brine).

An electric switch activated by air pressure. This device detects air pressure exerted on it through a flexible tube connecting it to part of a water tub.
When activated, this switch then opens an electrical circuit stopping further filling of water into the machine.. May also be called a PRESSURE SWITCH. if not activated definately it will cause overflow.

Check the wire harness to the pressure switch. or tap your float switch with finger tips may be it get stacked. if nothin happen replace the pressure switch.
Rate my solution if useful.

Waterboss 93000 water softener


It most likely is due to a plugged eductor/injector assembly which pulls the salt brine out of the tank to regenerate softener. If it is plugged no brine will be pulled from salt tank during regen but it will keep filling the salt tank and eventually overflow with each cycle. Or there could be a leak in the valve causing the tank to overflow.
Here is the owners manual for your model.

Harveys water softener leaking


Actually it is regenerating if it is filling the salt tank with water. It is just not drawing out the water/brine during the brining cycle. Check the eductor assembly it is most likely plugged with iron or debris. Clean thoroughly and manually cycle unit to brine draw. Usually second cycle, until the water level is back to normal then do a manual regeneration from beginning. Then regen 3 consecutive days.

Water level after regen is over half the way up the brine tank


The eductor assembly is plugged. This will cause the unit to not draw brine but will keep re-filling salt tank causing high water in tank.
Take the cover off the control. On the left side of control there is small dome shaped apparatus. The"eductor assembly" is inside here. By-pass the softener, run it through a quick regeneration (to depressurize the system) Hold the regen button down until it starts through cycle, then push regen to cycle through each step of regen until it goes back to service. You will see this (S) on top of the valve where the main drive gear is.
When depressurized, take the lid off the eductor housing, disassemble and clean all the small holes completely. Be cautious of small nozzles and small screen in system as they can be easily lost.
Re-assemble, put water back to unit. Run through manual cycle again.
1. Refill
2. Backwash
3. Brine draw
4. Rinse
Then advance to backwash and let system go through complete regeneration.
You will have to bail most of the water out of salt tank as it will never draw it back down to proper level with that much water in tank. About 4" of water.

Lost directions for using my Sisan Steamer. I have the water measure but don't know how much salt to add. Can you help?


The measuring cup holds 1/4 cup. Fill with tap water and pour one full measure into the hole exposed by removal of handle. Then measure table salt into small hollow on handle. Next, pour two (2) full measures of salt into a second measuring cup full of water, and pour into Sisan. Never use more salt than will fill the measuring hollow in handle. Remember that should the steam cease, unplug and refill with two measures of tap water, but no more salt.

Maintenance:
Add one (1) teaspoon white vinegar to two measures of tap water, put it in the Sisan Steamer and let it run a few minutes. Then pour this out of the Steamer and rinse well to scale the inside.

Where to put the salt? and how to flush it? thank you wg844


Dump the salt in the separate brine tank. Always keep salt/brine tank at least half full. If you want to run a manual regeneration push the regen button. For delayed regeneration (2am) push once, for immediate regeneration push twice.

PUMP WILL NOT STOP WHEN YOU PUT POWER ON . PUMP STARTS AS SOON AS YOU PUT THE POWER ON TO PICK A WASH PROGRAM EVEN BEFORE THE DOOR HAS BEEN CLOSED.


I have seen this on my unit. There was water in the drip pan under the dishwasher. Water in the drip pan comes from a leak. In my case, the water valve was getting so old that it was letting too much water into the unit when it was trying to fill. This cause the filling station to over flow into the drip pan.
A quick fix - I removed the water from the drip pan under the unit and I was able to turn down on the supply valve in the basement to limit how much water could come in. This allowed the unit to run without overflowing. I will replace the water valve soon.

Other possibilities, the float device used to detect too much water in the drip pan or too much water in the unit is stuck in the too full position. Or the pump out pump is stuck and not moving water.

Salt indicator light comes on?


Check the instructions which are freely available from www.miele.co.uk or the relevant site for your country. Browse to the current models and you should find the PDF for your model. For non-current models, instructions are under the link "Customer Support".

In general, the instructions are as follows:
If the water in your area is very soft and constantly lower than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need to add dishwasher salt. The water softener must, however, still be programmed to correspond to the water hardness level in your area. (The salt indicator light will still come on, but should be ignored).

Important: Before filling the salt reservoir with dishwasher salt for the first time, you must fill it with approx. 2 litres of water to enable the salt to dissolve. Once the dishwasher has been used, there is always sufficient water in the reservoir.

Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid dishwasher detergent always leads to serious damage to the water softener. Make sure you have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling the salt reservoir!

Only use special coarse grained dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do not use other salts such as cooking salt, agricultural grade or gritting salt. These may contain insoluble additives which can impair the functioning of the water softener.

To refill:
* Remove the lower basket and unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
* Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres of water (first use).
* Place the funnel provided over the salt reservoir and carefully fill with salt until the reservoir is full. The salt reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt depending on the brand used.

As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced water will overflow.
* Clean any excess salt from around the reservoir opening and then screw the cap on again firmly.
* Run the "Pre-wash" programme immediately to remove any traces of salt water from the cabinet.

For the Miele, the salt reservoir is usually under the bottom basket, the cap is usually grey in colour. [Only the latest models have the refill cap in the door itself].

You should be able to find dishwasher salt just about anywhere, I've even found it in Malaysia, sold at good ol' Tesco!! Brands of salt include Calgonit (Finish) & Somat.
