That comes across a little scrambled to me.
seems like you have a 'salt reservoir' of some sort. am not familiar with that.
perhaps you could take a little more time and break the problem down to smaller parts, making sure it is understandable. i will try hard to help you, but i can not understand your issue at this point.
please try to take it through the steps of what happens, and what should be happening. as well as a little info on age of the unit and the maker.
thanks
let me know more.

On start DW drains but does not fill...putting hot water into machine will get it to start and run cycle sometimes only...


Main control board is bad. Drain sequence is a power on test, Main board is not sending signal to open valve or is sensing water is present in the machine when it is not.

Should there be a little water left in the dishwasher


yeah there should be a bit but the bottom should also have dishwasher salt in there. this is the bottom. the salt helps kill smells also helps cleaning. when you bought the dishwasher it should of come with a funnel thats for filling the salt into the system.

Water has stopped going through my Dishwasher!


salt tray does have water in there its supposed to have. its probably the magnetic switch on the mains water line in the dishwasher these can go, it can also be a clogged inline filter this will stop water getting through and is located in between the water line and the unit, removing the the pipe from the back will let you see this. it can also be the main switch on the motherboard as these can go as well and will need replacing but i would check the filter first.

Kenmore dishwasher will not fill with water model no 630.1609406. It will run a full cycle but not fill. Water was temp shut off to replace kitchen sink and now dishwasher won't fill with water. No fill...


First, are you sure that the machine is not filling?
I go on calls all the time for this problem and it turns out than the machine fills but the wash motor does not run.This leaves soap in the bottom of the DW so it looks like it did not fill with water. This is a common problem in dishwashers that have not been run for a few months, and is quite common after a remodel. If it IS getting water, the motor is probably stuck. If it is Not getting water the first step is to locate the "over fill" float inside the dishwasher. This will be a round sort of mushroom looking thing on the floor of the machine near the door on the right or left. Make sure it moves freely up and down. It will only move about 1/4 inch but If it is stuck up, the machine will not fill. If float is O.K. then check the water source. Turn of water to DW. Remove the kickplate under DW door and disconnect the waterline from fill valve (should be on front left side of unit). Run waterline into bucket then turn on the water. If you don't get water call your plumber. If you get water then you need to check the fill valve. Connect a volt meter to the 2 wires on the fill valve. Start DW. First the diswasher should start draining, then it will start filling. At this point (a few minutes into the cycle) you should see 120v AC at the fill valve. If you do see 120v Ac, replace the valve. If you don't , then turn off the machine and check the float switch. This is located under the DW right under the mushroom thingy. The switch should have continuity when the DW is empty. If there is no continuity then replace the switch.

Whirlpool Quiet GU2300XTLS2


Could be a a couple different issues.. Not filling with enough water or food chopper broke or food chopper filter screen clogged.

Check water level:
Run the DW and wait for the main wash to start (water will fill. pause then complete fill) The water should be no more than 1/4 inch below the heating element. If not there..replace water inlet valve.

Inspect food chopper:
Remove lower spray arm and rear water supply tube to upper spray arm. Remove torx screws that secure the sump cover. Remove the rounded cover on the left side to expose the chopper assembly. Inspect for breakage of blockage. There may be an additional plastic screen to remove first.

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.

Water in salt reservoir


I've had the same dishwasher for 2 years now and always had water in the salt compartment. Don't know if this is normal but disn't seem to be a problem til now. Just fill with salt as if it was empty.
