SOURCE: eco light keeps flashing won't fill with water

Something with the program module , get a technician if worthwhile.
The flow dection (expensive can't be) because pre wash gets water supply. Might be loose wire or broken button. Any handy guy around that can cautious open then model behind the panel and chreck connections. I fixed mine last year with a dot of 2 component glue because of broken switch. Unluckily, the flow detector broke after 10 years (interconnected with automatic water stop

3/4 full of salt, but no soft water, and water in the salt container

You didn't specify the type of softener, however if it's a Kenmore, GE, ECO Water or similar (usually under $500), the vortex/venturi, probably needs cleaning. (If you have iron in your water, you need to clean this about every 6-12 months, depending on how many ppm your water has).

But it's an simple & easy procedure. First remove the cover of the softener (usually held on by 2 clips in front, 2 in back).

Once the cover is off, on the left side of the valve you will see a conical-shaped plastic part. (Usually gray, but not always). You will need to unscrew this (it's ok if water is still on, it's not under any pressure unless it's recharging) and clean the screen inside.

Most likely the screen will be caked with iron oxide (rust). I use a rust dissolver (such as Iron Out or any product designed to dissolve rust, but this is strong stuff, wear gloves or wash you hands immediately afterwards) and let the screen soak in that for 1/2 hour. If needed, you can speed the process along by using an old toothbrush and clean the screen, then soak a little longer, brush again, etc.

Once clean, replace the screen (mind the O-ring) and cover (hand tight is sufficient). Start a manual regeneration and clean the resin bed.

-If you decide to remove the rest of the parts in the vortex/venturi, be very careful not to lose anything. A few of these parts are very small. There should be a diagram of how the parts go together in your owners manual and on the machine itself. Usually these will not need cleaning, but doesn't hurt to go ahead and make certain. As to the two rubber parts with holes in them, the one with the larger hole goes on the bottom, and on both, the rounded side goes up. Watch carefully when you disassemble and remember so you can reassemble in the correct order with done.

As you have water in the brine tank (salt tank) keep an eye on this to prevent a salt bridge from forming. This is more prevalent with rock salt than pellets, but can form with any salt.

(I would strongly recommend you never use "rock salt" in any softener. It's full of dirt and you will absolutely need to clean out the brine tank at least annually or the dirt will end up being drawn into the softener. I use a good quality of salt pellets with an "red out" to maintain the resin against iron. These are usually good up to 2 ppm iron, anything over this and you should use a 1/2 box of Iron Out or similar, every 6 months).

If you suspect a salt bridge has formed, try pouring hot water onto the salt at one spot. This will dissolve the salt in that spot and form a "hole" in the salt. (Hot water dissolves salt faster than cold).
Once you break through, use a broom handle to break the salt surrounding the hole and it will collapse into the bottom of the brine tank. Suspect a salt bridge is the machine runs properly, but no soft water.

Dishlex Global 300 Dishwasher - ECO Light flashing - Manual indicates incorrect fill level - Manual suggests hold ECO button for 10 Seconds. No success. Have tried pressing and holding buttons - no...

eco light sometimes indicates that water has got into the bottom panel of the machine. A float switch is underneath to protect the machine ( and your kitchen floor from being flooded. ( Either from overfilling or a leak) If you tilt the machine backwards see if any water runs out. If the machine restarts , then you will have sourced the problem. Should the flashing start again later, you may have a water leak underneath. Also check the lower door gasket to make sure its clean. If the gasket is dirty, sometimes water builds up behind the gasket and drips over the front of the tub into the bottom panel underneath causing this symptom. When cleaning the gasket, be very carefull!! The edges of the door at the bottom are razor sharp..

To check on the source of the white powder (calcium?) soak some dishes in vinegar to see if this cleans them up nicely ... or if the 'white powder' is actually permanent etching. You may have very 'hard' water and will need to deal with that with a water softener or additives.

Read the following article for a better understanding and try the vinegar test . (also ensure you are using dishwasher specific salt to regenerate your integral softener... assuming you have one)

Ariston LL64 doesn't start

1) Ensure the dishwasher is turned off.
2) (may not apply) Turn the plastic blue lever located under the sink to the vertical position (this opens the valve, so water can go into the dishwasher)
3) Pour powder indo the dishwasher
4) Turn the dishwasher controller to the top position (the 12 o’clock position) – this is the eco-setting.
5) Press the on/power button on the dishwasher, so that it now turned on (a light will display)
6) Move the dishwasher controller to the “R” position (it’s on the very left), and leave it there a second or two.
7) Move the dishwasher controller back to the eco-setting (the 12 o’clock position).
