Salt? Why are you using salt to begin with? Why are you not using the liquid soaps etc. If your one of those all natural people i use all natural liquid etc. Salt is corrosive and parts that are not stainless steel will corrode quickly!

Hi, I just put normal table salt in my dishwasher and have now realised this was a mistake. Will it damage my machine? Should I try and get it out? Or should I put proper dishwasher salt on top; the lite is still red despite me putting in 500gms of table salt.

Our Ariston LI645A dishwasher is not drying the dishes completely and whenever the cycle has finished, it always resorts back to the ECO cycle whereas we usually have it on the normal cycle? I have filled up the rinse aid but it does not seem to make a difference. The manual also says to put refined salt into the salt dispenser - i have not done that yet as was not sure exactly what 'refined' salt is and where i can get it from. thanks

Dirty dishes I have a zanussi slimline dishwasher, but no matter what I do the dishes still come out gritty and sometimes food particles stuck to inside of cups and glasses, glasses have a white film over them and have to be done by hand, pointless really, I use finish tabs or persil or anything that is of good quality, and use a rinse aid and salt.

Try putting a cup of white vinegar in the empty dishwasher & running it on fast wash. Should eliminate film; do you have hard water where you live? If so lime build up could be the problem.\015\012Hope this helps.Cheers. ... Dishwashers

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model IT 5614. When I turn the dishwasher on, the indicator light is already stuck at "BIO 50" and won't move, and the dishwasher won't start when the door is closed. This just happened today. The indicator light for dishwasher salt was also on, so I added dishwasher salt and that light went off, but the machine is still stuck. The instruction book says that when this happens, technical assistance is needed. What exactly is the problem, and is it anything I can


It has been suggested to switch the machine on/off a couple of times and the flashing light will not reappear. Until this light goes off the dishwasher will not start. All the filters should be cleaned free of any leftover food particles. What i mean ... Dishwashers
