I've never heard of dishwasher salt. 2 kg is about 4-1/2 pounds worth.

SOURCE: salt for DDW1805 Danby

I use ordinary household water softener salt crystals, not pellets, or table salt. The table salt often is not as refined as softener crystals, and can damage the dishwasher's softener in time. Also, the water softener salt comes in a large bag (around 25-50 lbs) for about $6 US.

HI,

You can buy dishwasher salt in almost every supermarket. It can usually be found in the section with other household cleaning products such as soaps and washing powders. Make sure you are buying dishwasher salt. Do not use table salt or any other type of salt not designed for use with dishwashers.

You have not been charged for this information ;)

Trying to find out Danby DDW1899WP's salt capacity?


don't fill it more than half, you want to see that the unit is consuming the salt, but filling it all the way sometimes leads to a hollow pathway in the dissolved salt under the pile, the water channels through the path and your softener will be sounding like it is working, but doing very little. Be aware that there are different types of salt depending on your water type... there are rust removers, etc... I don't see how importing salt from Finland is going to be much more efficient than buying the salt at ACE hardware- whatever floats your boat.

Where in USA do you buy "dishwasher salt"?


Unless you have hard water it is not necessary to use the dishwasher salts. We are in an area with very soft water, just pretend the red light is not there and wash as usual. Same for drying agent, we don't use it and the machine still works even though the lights are on. We actually had a repair person come out, the company we bought the dishwasher from were willing to give us a new one based on my saying it didn't work without salts. Needless to say I felt like an idiot when he came. The manual that comes with the unit should be better written.... There is a delay between turning the power on and the machine starting which was the biggest reason I thought it was not working without the salts.

What kind of salt do I buy for use in the Danby DW?


Hi there,

Well Dishwasher salt is a particular grade of sodium chloride salt, and is used for recharging the built-in ion-exchange resins of the water softener in dishwashers that have a built-in water softener. The salt particles are larger than the size of table salt particles, and dissolves slowly enough that it will not clog the softener unit. This salt does not have added iodide salts, and it should have minimal amounts of iron and manganese salts. Some dishwasher detergents are marketed as not needing dishwasher salts. These detergents use higher levels of phosphate that increases the solubility of hard water ions. Never use table salt or detergent in the salt compartment of your dishwasher as this will damage your water softener unit. You can purchase the dishwasher salt from the below link -

Good Luck!!

Dishwasher salt


Cooking salt contains ingredients that could damage your dishwasher. It could increase water hardness and they are likely to clog when wet. Suck out as much water as you can from the salt cup,enter there dishwasher salt and run your washer few empty cycles on the lowest temperature. Good luck
