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.

Where do i put the salt in my hotpoint dishwasher ?


If you don't put salt in the appliance then the regeneration crystals will clump together over time and solidify. This will cause a restriction in the softener unit.
If you stopped using it and then started again you may find that the impurities caught by the crystals have simply found their way into the appliance.
You can set the softener to be at minimum setting if you are in a soft water area.

The salt isn't used to soften the water, it's used to clean the crystals in the water softener unit.
Why Do I Need to Use Salt in my Dishwasher?
Salt is needed to ensure that your dishwasher's in-built water softener gives an optimum performance. You will especially need to use dishwasher specific salt if you live in a hard water area. You can purchase one of our Aqua test strips (part number 180876) to determine the hardness of your water from our parts and accessories store or call us on 08448 225 225 .

Manually drain the floor of the machine, put in salt, and check out.
open the salt container at the bottom, and it will be full up with water, and it really will smell bad. clean it and add salt near to 1kg. then run run a prewash cycle and then check out does the salt error is coming up.if yes then more salt needs to be added.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively.thank you for using fixya

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

Hi my AEG Favourit dishwasher has no hot water. Thinking it must be the element after reading other posts. Any idea how a young lady witha useless hubby can get this changed. I want want to have to call...


1 st change the useless hubby !! Get a good hubby who can check the element (sound like it is open circuit) with an ohm meter. This will show a few ohm's is the element is fine and infinity if the element is open circuit.

DISHWASHER AEG 80860


Just fixed a similar problem on an AEG F3A by following other advice on this site. Simply tip the machine forwards on to its door (best empty it of crockery first!!!).and then put it upright again when water has stopped dripping out of it. You wil get quite a bit of water on your floor which I reduced by pumping the water out of the salt resevoir first - but if you don't have a pump just have several towels handy

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.

Are you using these all in one tablets? if so I would still advise to add salt as without this you will get limescale build up espesially if you are in a hard water area, hopefully this will solve your problem.

Dishwasher Drying Problem


rinse agent is essential and best to use seperate detergent and rinse aid and not the combined tablets. if you live in a hard water area, essential also to use salt. the dishwasher will dry quite well - it relies on the last rinse being hot and then the water just evaporates. most dishwashers work like that but some turn on the element for short periods during dry.
