Question about Neff 24 in. S5443X2 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Contents covered in salt

All the contents of the dishwasher are covered in salt.
After filling up the saltcontainer and running the programme the salt has all gone from the container and the contents are coated with salt. We have had this machine for 6 years and have never had a problem.

Maybe you are not getting enough circulation fro the water circuators. Check for any blockage in the rotating arms where the water comes out. Also the water pump may be clogged or in need of replacement.

Why on my indesit dishwasher, the salt container is full and not dissolving?


The dispenser could be defective and not releasing its contents at the proper cycle time but the problem also could be due to a defect in the timer.

What do these mean on a zanussi dishwasher model DE 6854


The top light is apparently to indicate that the salt (!) has run out.

The bottom light is apparently to indicate that rinse aid has run out.

For the record, that seems to be a Zanussi DE-6854 dishwasher, and I found the manual here: (link)


"Special salt can be added in one of two ways: 1) If you are using dishwasher detergent that already contains salt, the detergent including the salt is placed in the detergent compartment. - In this case the water softener must manually be set to 1 and electronically to 1 to ensure that the special salt is taken from the detergent container only. 2) If you are using dishwasher detergent and salt separately, the special salt is to be put into the salt container. - In this case the water softener must manually be set to 1 or 2 and electronically between 1 and 5 (depending on the water hardness in your area) to ensure that the special salt is taken from the salt container only. Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener. Only fill with salt just before starting one of the washing programmes. This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have been spilt, remaining on the bottom of the machine for any period of time, which may cause corrosion." (Page 6)

"Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance." (Page 7)

The manual also explains how to turn the Rinse Aid light off permanently if you do not wish to use rinse aid.



Good luck!

Dishwasher is not cleaning contents properly


I take it that the dishwasher is going through the full cycle?

So check that the filters and spray arm holes are not blocked up.



If they are clean then check water level inside the appliance by letting it fill to the point it starts to wash then open the door (slowly) you can also tell if the wash pump is working at the same time.



Even if you use all in one tabs I have also found that putting salt and rinse aid in the appliance helps.

Neff s5443x1gb\29 my dishwasher is leaving the contents after a wash with a film of dirt. it looks like a film of dirty water which is dried on . i have put salt and rince aid in and have done 2 washes...


Useful tips for a clean plate,

Filters clean?
Rinceaid/salt topped up?
using the right detergent?
Have you run a full cycle with a named dishwasher cleaner?

I know it sounds like the obvious but above you will find what i think is the solution.

I put powder detergent in salt compartment in my dishwasher by mistake. What do I do next?


Just flush it out by pouring plenty of water into the receptacle. You don't have to get every last trace out. Make sure to wear rubber gloves and possibly eye protection as the powder is caustic and so you need to avoid skin and eye splashes.

You could alternatively leave the salt chamber cap off and run the dishwasher empty for a couple of cycles; that will allow the powder to dissolve without any chance of you getting splashes on your skin.

Bosch dishwasher water won't enter for wash cycle and YES water is on


Will it do anything else?

How about if you fill it up manually? As in fill up a pitcher, pour contents into the bottom of the dishwasher until it raises the float. Close the door and see if it runs. (don't put so much in there that it pours out the open door)

If it runs and you are sure the water is on. Turn the water off. Take the inlet line off the dishwasher's electric control valve and see if the inlet screen is covered with trash. If it is, clean it off, put it back togehter and see if it works.

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.
