Question about Beko 24 in. D3421F Free-standing Dishwasher

Salt lasts only a very short time in dishwasher

Beko de2541 fx needs to have salt added to the system a lot. The red light stays on and doesn't seem to keep the salt that's added for very long. When adding the salt to the container there's a lot of water flowing back up to the top - would appear that the salt is disolved rather than remaining in the sytem.

This is a slimline machine is only switched on at most once a day.

Any solutions to solve the problem would be appreciated.

Are you asking about a dishwasher or a water softener???

Posted on Jun 29, 2009

  • David Shaub Jun 30, 2009

    There are 2 ways around this. You can add larger salt - like large ice melting crystals or a salt chew like is used for guinna pigs & chinchills or, you can use a dishwashing detergent with a softening agent in the detergent.

Do you need to put salt in the dishwasher. If using tablets detergent ...where to put it ?


A lot of dishwashers do not have salt dispensers. If it does, the salt is added to a container which has a lid on the base (floor) on the inside under the bottom basket. Unscrew the lid and add the salt. Use normal pool salt. It is the same as "special dishwasher salt" that you pay a lot for. When full, the salt will last for 12 to 18 months. Most machines that have a salt container, also have a warning light on the panel to let you know it needs refilling. Dishwasher tablets do not add salt to the machine. Make sure you wipe up any salt that you may have spilt on the base of the machine, it will stain or rust the cabinet.

Dishwasher salt beko


Rinse aid and salt are not necessary if you use powder that is similar to the tablets. The lights are warning you that you havent added them, you know that so ignore the lights. If you live in a hard-water (limescale) area salt can be used as well as tablets or powder to make the water kinder to the machine, but most people just use tablets without rinse-aid or salt.

My generator first indicated low salt. I've added plenty of salt, and it still indicated low salt. I turned it off for 24 hours, and tried it again, now it has the service indicator light on,what next ?


We've found with our saltwater system (which doesn't have a service light, so not the same model as yours) that we have to add far more salt than we expect before the 'low salt' indicator goes off. It also seems to be very tempramental whenever it's been off for a while (such as over winter) & needs to run for very short bursts at first before working up to normal operating times.

Salt light stays on


There is probubally an sensor in the machine that senses salt levels, it is not uncommon for and sensor to be faulty out of the box, I would contact the manufacturers on their 1-800 number nd consult with them and if be order the replacement part from them directly. Hope this helps

HELP WITH NON FUNCTIONING DISHWASHER


similar problems here, repair man says its fine but the salt light was on so i added salt and works ok now. Some dishwashers don't function properly without the salt and rinse aid, even though you're pills may have then included, you still have to add them seperately, dumb but necessary at times.
