Question about Dishwashers
We have a miele dishwasher and the water-intake light is comming on. We have no manuel and don't know what this means. Dishwasher is new to us. We checked the filter and cleaned it. We start the machine and it sounds like it is running but then 3-5 minutes later it stops and the water-intake light comes on. Very little water in bottom of machine under the filter area. Please help.
Second question is says it needs salt. Is that just regular salt?
Thank you in advance for any help.
THIS IS THE INTAKE DRAIN LIGHT, THIS USUALLY MEANS YOU HAVE A DRAIN ISSUE, COULD BE A BLOCKAGE AT THE PUMP OR YOUR INSTALLATION IS INCORRECT, YOU CAN CALL MIELE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND ORDER A USE AND CARE MANUAL AS WELL AS AN INSTALLATION GUIDE, THEY ARE ALSO VERY GOOD AT TROUBLSHOOTING OVER THE PHONE @ 1-800-843-7231

I think it's regular salt, yes, but I've never bothered to fill mine.
Have you had a dishwasher previously? If not, check the tap where your washer gets its water to make sure it has proper water preasure. If the washer doesn't get enough water it will stop.
In my kitchen there is a separate little knob on the tap to control the water to the dishwasher. this has to be open. Mine has hot and cold selection, but only cold is connected so if I turn it on hot the washer gets no water
