You should have a dispenser on the door to add salt,regardless get c.l.r. calcium lime rust remover from a supermarket,lowes,home depot.put a cup in the unit ,run for 15 minutes and then put a cup in again.let the unit complete its cycle.if you still smell the odor repeat until its could also use baking soda,flour or vinegar.

How do i add salt to miele incognito?

There is a cap inside the dishwasher on the bottom right side, unscrew it and dump a full box of salt in. Clean up any spilled salt and run a rinse and hold cycle to remove any salt residue. Miele recommends using their own salt, available online at or at a local Miele dealer. They don't recommend using water softener salt or table salt. For more help call their tech support at 800.999.1360, they are very helpful.

What is the salt when it comes to the dishwasher

The light is just to let you know that the internal water softener needs water-softener salt.

If you do not use the softener (I do not at my house) then the light serves as a convenient on/off light.

I have just purchased a new Miele dishwasher. I filled the salt reserve as required but whenever the cleaning cycle finishes it reads Add salt! The salt reserve is already full! Please could you...

Hi Carol
You MUST add water into the softener reserve chamber, normally water first then salt.
Dont worry its a common mistake.

My dishwasher is flashing for salt it is a Miele and i want to know what kind of salt to put in and how much - i have the plastic bowl thing to put it in the dishwasher

Use the salt supplied by your service provider. Or try in a super market.Ask for dish washer salt.
If a plastic funnel is supplied use it to fill the salt compartment. The quantity as it holds.

Do not fill kitchen salt used for food!

For softening the hard water salt is used in the machine. Now the chances of hardness level getting increased is possible compared to the previous months.

Where do I put salt into a G665 model

Salt and rinse aid are low if the indicator light is on.

Salt is placed in a compartment in the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. It has a round approx 10cm diameter screw cap.

Rinse aid goes in under a flap in the inside of the door near the powder dispenser

The only dishwashers so far in the us that have softeners are Miele and Fisher& Paykel . The Miele come standard and it's a option for the Fisher& Paykel. other then that i would not recomend you use salt in and other unit.

Miele dishwasher film and crust on the inside-

Hard water has this "crust" which are minerals floating around that ionically attach to everything. Some machines from Miele have a water softener inside the machine. Special dishwasher softener Salt is added that cleans minerals off Xeolite beads. When cleaned they attract mineral ions. If you don't use the salt then the beads fill up on minerals until they can't hold any more minerals. The salt is used in the regeneration cycle. It washes the mineral ions off the xeloite replacing them with salt ions. As new water enters the machine mineral ions slowly knock off the salt ions and attach themselves to the beads again. This whole process keeps the crust off the dishes and the walls of the machine.
Use a dishwasher cleaner that removes scale. And if you don't have a salt light on your Miele you can instead purchase soap tablets that contain water softener built in. Miele dishwasher tablets have it. You can order them online or call Miele.
