Usually Salt or Softener can be added from a big hand sized cap inside the machine!

I link to the D839 model user manual is below if that helps?

Where do I put salt.


Your question about Dishwashers "Where do I put salt" is quite myterious. I never heared about need to put salt in dishwashers. In any case, please specify the model and make of your dishwasher or other device which needs to add salt to get it working, and maybe someone might help to get a downloadable version or give you a clue how to get your manual.

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.

Salt Light


The sensor in the salt chamber isn't reading properly. Try descaling the machine with solution and restarting.

Salt (PC) light is flashing


Miele dishwashers have a built-in water softener. I suspect the unit is indicating that the dishwasher softener salt is low or needs to be replenished.

Which model dishwasher do you have? http://www.mieleusa.com/products/modelsg5000.asp?cat=2&menu_id=1&oT=125&active=Our%20Products&subm=Home%20Appliances&thirdL=Dishwashers&fourthL=Products lists a number of their dishwashers and has the manuals for them. Click on the model and scroll down. Click on the Manuals tab. (Click on the Retired models if your dishwasher isn't on the first page.)

I hope this helps.

When I start my dishwasher the check water light keeps comming on. Also the salt light so the machine does not go through its cycle. Can you please advise me the best course of...


Hi, if your unit is getting good water pressure then the problem is going to be your flow meter which is the device that measures how much water is coming into the unit. If it doesn't detect enough water coming into the unit, the dishwasher will hault and give you check water light error. When the error comes up look at the water in the bottom and see if you have enough water in the bottom for a cycle. If not then your flow meter is fine and your unit truely isn't getting enough water which means that either your house isn't giving good water pressure to the dishwasher, or the electronic water valve that connects to the water line from your house is bad and needs to be replaced....

Inside the machine in base there is a large screw cap.
Undo that put DISHWASHER salt in not cooking salt.
Make sure the salt well is full of water in it before you put in the salt. Fill salt to top.

Film on dishes and inside stainless steel panel


You live in a hard water area. Even though dishwasher tablets have salt included you may have to fill the machine with extra salt. (its the large srew top cap in the bottom of your machine, open it and fill it with dishwaher salt your machine came with a large funnel to help you do this) you will have to remove the bottom drawer to do this. next make sure you have rinse aid installed in the door of your machine, next to where you put the tablets in (don't buy cheap rinse aid it's not worth it) when its full of rinse aid the indicator will turn dark, will need both salt and rince aid about every 30 cycles.

Leak from salt reservoir on the DT999


Replace water softner seals (Hoover spares reference: 91941698) as stated previously. Harraps were doing them for £6 each. The softner is accessed by removing the R/H panel and unscrewing the air break ring nut from inside the machine. They are not a standard size so oem o rings are recommended.

Error e3


Drain pump probably not working. Put machine on cycle 7 and it should turn on the drain pump straight away. you can hear this near the bottom of the machine. if it is silent hten the pump probably needs replacing. I repaired mine be removing it and then dismantle the magnet from the tube then give it a good clean out.
