Unless you have hard water it is not necessary to use the dishwasher salts. We are in an area with very soft water, just pretend the red light is not there and wash as usual. Same for drying agent, we don't use it and the machine still works even though the lights are on. We actually had a repair person come out, the company we bought the dishwasher from were willing to give us a new one based on my saying it didn't work without salts. Needless to say I felt like an idiot when he came. The manual that comes with the unit should be better written.... There is a delay between turning the power on and the machine starting which was the biggest reason I thought it was not working without the salts.

Check Walmart and stores like that. If all else fails, you can buy it on Amazon. Look for "Finish Dishwashing Salt." Buy more than one to keep on hand plus you'll save a little money.

I found it on amazon. But you don't necessarily need it. If you have it hooked up to the sink, plugged in, and water turned on. Turn it on hit start and wait and it will start after 20 seconds (complete estimate not actual time). I thought I had to have salt to use it but you don't.

I never use it so can't tell you. Works fine without salt or jet-dry.

You can buy dishwasher salt in almost every supermarket. It can usually be found in the section with other household cleaning products such as soaps and washing powders. Make sure you are buying dishwasher salt. Do not use table salt or any other type of salt not designed for use with dishwashers.
You have not been charged for this information ;)
