My Prima LPR660 dishwasher does not clean properly. It appears to have water in the salt container. We cant seem to unscrew the salt container to see if it is blocked. Everything else is clean and works, we just get a scale of salt on the dishes. Any tips gratefully received! Thanks Emilie

Hello. My dishwasher has been pretty perfect for four years. When my house water softener ran out of salt, I added rinse aid and salt to the dishwasher for the first time. I subsequently added salt to the softener. Recently [a few weeks later] the glasses have all come out cloudy, something that never happened before. Also, the cutlery has whitish marks on it which are impossible to remove. I would love some help on this. Many thanks, Terry
