Run a few times with nothing in the machine on full washes it may be that the salt you are using is not suitable for that machine also check that you have the machine plumbed into the hot water outlet.

Using all the salt

You may have to fill the dispenser for each load. The manual should be specific about how much to use.

We have an Rangemaster RDW459F1 integrated dishwasher and there is a strong taste of salt on everything.We indroduced 2 kg of salt into the dispenser after first filling with water as...

stop using the tablets. they don't work in hard water areas. I think what you are dealing with is hard water deposits. Use "Lemi shine" for your main wash and the packets for your pre-wash. No one has harder water than where i live... Lemi shine works awesome!!!!

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.

Glass and cups coming out with a milky stain on them, no shine at all.

Rub a little vinegar on the surface of an affected item. Does the stain vanish? If so then you have limescale deposits caused by no salt in the machine.

No salt can be an empty dispenser, a faulty dispenser, or using dishwasher tablets/powder without additional supplementary salt in a hard water area. it can also be caused by having the salt dispensing control set too low (on many models it's a lever located adjacent to the dispenser lid).

Hi - i just moved in and have this new bauchnet. I have the 5 in 1 tablets. But do i need to add salt as well in the hole/below apart from the 5-in-1 tablet to set the program?

That all depends on local water supply hardness.

If you have a water supply which leaves a lot of limescale, then you'll need to add supplementary salt, but will be able to dial down the dosage control to a lower setting than you would if you used plain dishwasher tablets.

The appliance handbook will give you a guide as to which settings of the salt control are appropriate for various water hardness levels. You can get the figures for the level of hardness by either using test strips which change colour (available from plumbing supply shops) or by contacting your water supply company.

If you want the really simple "**** it and see" method, then if you use no salt and the dishes are clean then you're good to go. If there are regular dried on food residues then you need additional salt: Fill the salt reservoir, tun the dispensing lever to a high setting, and with every second wash turn it down one click. Once you get to a point where there are stuck on residues you'll know that you've gone a bit too far and will need to turn it back up a click or two.

If it helps, my local supply is one of the hardest water supplies on the planet (literally!) and with plain tablets I have to set the salt dispenser to maximum and reload it frequently, with "x-in1" brands I use about a half less salt.

I hope that my reply has been of use and in return ask only that you rate my answer.

Calcium buildup on heating element. It's unmovable.

The reason for the calcium build up is normally a hard water,Make sure the salt dispenser is full (located at the bottom of the machine under the lower rack,before you add salt get a descaller from you local hardware store, most carry for dishwashers.Follow instructions, this may require a few treatments before it is gone,when it is right then check salt level etc.Hope you come right.

White gasket has come out from somewhere in my dishwasher

As for the gasket the only thing I can think of not knoweing size etc is that it more than likely goes under the salt dispenser lid. The dishes not drying (1)check the rinse aid it may be empty and (2) While you are checking the rinse aid level double check the salt levels aswell.

Salt in the dishwasher
