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.

Scoop out as much as you can and the fill the compartment with warm water until it forces as much detergent out as possible out and then repalce the cover and run the drain cycle on the machine. The fill the salt compartmwnt with warm water a further 2 or 3 times to get rid of most of it if not all of it and drain. When completed then fill the compartment with salt.

How much salt goes in dish washer


You don't put salt in a dishwasher unless you want to ruin it.

2. You ONLY use a detergent specifically for dishwasher use as the cleaning agent and you 3/4 fill the soap dispenser in the washer (normally fitted into the door on the inside) with the dishwasher powder.

3. If there is a separate small compartment in your dish washer for a "rinse aid" solution to be used, you can use a rinse aid product designed for dishwasher use only. If there is no rinse aid compartment (this is also normally fitted to the inside of the door - if fitted on your machine) then you cannot use a rinse aid in your washer.

4. Don't use any other product in the dish washer.

Where can I put the salt no compartment for it


Do you mean the dishwashing powder? You can drop the tablets or measured powder into the bottom of the dishwasher. Try adding 1/4 cup of vinegar to the long wash cycle to maintain a clean dishwasher and make the dishes sparkle.

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 powder


Check inlet water quality. It's hardness level. Use salt meant for dish washers. There will be a salt fill compartment. Refer user guide.

Finally check whether the rinse aid dispenser has liquid for dispensing.

What kind of salt do I buy for use in the Danby DW?


Hi there,

Well Dishwasher salt is a particular grade of sodium chloride salt, and is used for recharging the built-in ion-exchange resins of the water softener in dishwashers that have a built-in water softener. The salt particles are larger than the size of table salt particles, and dissolves slowly enough that it will not clog the softener unit. This salt does not have added iodide salts, and it should have minimal amounts of iron and manganese salts. Some dishwasher detergents are marketed as not needing dishwasher salts. These detergents use higher levels of phosphate that increases the solubility of hard water ions. Never use table salt or detergent in the salt compartment of your dishwasher as this will damage your water softener unit. You can purchase the dishwasher salt from the below link -

Good Luck!!

Thanks

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

Do I put powder detergent in the same place I put Liquid detergent?


Detergent compartment
Add liquid or powdered detergent to this compartment for your
wash cycle. The detergent separator must always be in place,
either in the front or back position.
 Do not fill beyond the “MAX” level.
 Liquid or powdered color-safe bleach may be added to the
Main Wash compartment along with the same type of
detergent, liquid or powdered.
 Liquid detergent: Put the SEPARATOR in the front position,
between the guides, as shown as shown by Position 1 below.
There will be no gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

Powdered detergent:
Put the SEPARATOR in the back
position, behind the guides as shown by Position 1 below. There will be
a gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

NOTE: The separator will be in the POWDER (back) position
when shipped from the factory.
