You can add simply over it. It will dissolve. Or use a sponge and squeeze it out manually.

Where do i put the salt


Hello Maria,

The salt goes in the salt compartment in the base of the washing compartment. Unscrew the lid of the salt compartment (counter-clockwise), pour in salt until the compatment is full or nearly full then screw the lid back on firmly, but do not overtighten it.

If the dishwasher is new and you are using it for the first time, pour about 1 litre of cold clean water into the salt compartment before adding the salt. If you spill any salt or the water spills over the top of the salt compartment, it will wash/drain away the next time you use the washer.

The most important thing is to only use dishwasher salt. The salt is used for water-softening and only salt sold specifically for dishwashers can be used for this purpose.

The picture above is from a Bosch dishwasher. You may have another brand or model of dishwasher, but the salt compartment will still be in the base of the washing compartment and will have a cap which you unscrew as above.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please let me know the brand and model number of your dishwasher.

Regards,
BElectric

Just moved into a house with fitted NEFF dishwasher, never had one before and no manual left. Where do salts go? Thanks


Hi there,

The salt goes in the salt compartment in the base of the dishwasher. Open the door and pull the lower basket out. You should then be able to see a cap near the front-left corner of the base of the dishwasher. Unscrew this cap (anti-clockwise) and fill the compartment with salt all the way to the top - or with as much salt as you have in the packet - then screw the cap back on firmly, but do not over-tighten it. The salt compartment will (or should!) be full of water and some will spill out as you fill it with salt. This is totally normal and not indicative of any problem.

Do not use any type of salt which is not sold specifically for dishwashers. The dishwasher can be used without salt but it is not advised and may result in a white film being left on your cutlery, glassware and/or dishes.

It may also be possible to provide a user manual in PDF format which you can download, but I would need to know the model number. If you don't know the model number Most Neff/Bosch dishwashers have the model number laser-etched into the stainless-steel at the top of the inner-door or the rim of the washing compartment. Please click on the link below for a guide to locating the model number of your dishwasher. (Neff is a Bosch owned brand)

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you would like the manual or need further assistance.

Lost directions for using my Sisan Steamer. I have the water measure but don't know how much salt to add. Can you help?


The measuring cup holds 1/4 cup. Fill with tap water and pour one full measure into the hole exposed by removal of handle. Then measure table salt into small hollow on handle. Next, pour two (2) full measures of salt into a second measuring cup full of water, and pour into Sisan. Never use more salt than will fill the measuring hollow in handle. Remember that should the steam cease, unplug and refill with two measures of tap water, but no more salt.

Maintenance:
Add one (1) teaspoon white vinegar to two measures of tap water, put it in the Sisan Steamer and let it run a few minutes. Then pour this out of the Steamer and rinse well to scale the inside.

My new dishwasher leaves a white residue on my pots. pans and stainless flatware. I have not changed soap. Could the water not be hot enough?


Check the incoming water quality. If water is hard and having calcium content this could happen. Use water softeners in the inlet water to the machine.

If dish washer salt compartment available fill with the special salt meant for dish washers.

Check rinse aid compartment and fill rinse aid. Or use two in one soap tablet.

My Dishwasher leaves a white film on dishes.


check inlet water quality. If more calcium deposits in the water this could happen. Try using water water softeners.

If provision for dish washer salt check and add salt. ( not kitchen salt )

Finally check whether rinse aid compartment is filled with the liquid. If you are tablet, extra rinse aid not needed. Try all the above.

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.

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.
