Water softener Salt residue remains on the dishes. The water softener is going throught salt like crazy. I fill the salt and make sure that the light is off before I start the cylce. Within the first 20-45 mins the salt light comes on again and the dishes will not wash properly. We have come to the conclusion that the salt is being distributed to quicky but cannot figure out why the light keeps coming on. The switch inside the cap for the salt is set a the min.

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 instructed. We live in a hard water area but even so I turned the arrow more to the - side, but it has not made any difference. It did seem alot of salt to put but it was first time being used. Can you help me please? Jackie

I have a Bosch SGS43A22 Dishwasher approx 8 years old. When I start a cycle it fills, runs for about 15 minutes, then drops out about a litre of water from the bottom of the door, then completes the cycle without any more leaking. I have run the machine with the front panel off and can see that water bypasses the top of the seal and fills the well of the seal then pours out. It only happens the once. The seal is fitted correctly. Any solutions?


After 8 years service the seal may have perished, so you should feel for a crack by stretching the rubber where you noticed the leak. ... Bosch 24 in. SGS43C12 Classixx Free-Standing Dishwasher

My Hoover dishwasher HFI 3015 is not working. When you turn it on, the P1 and 'out of salt' light is flashing and bleeping constantly. I believe that it may have run out of salt yesterday, but I have filled it this morning and there is plenty of Dishwasher salt in the compartment now and it is overflowing with water. I have tried turning the machine on and off, but each time I turn it on I get this bleeping and flashing and can't stop it. Any ideas?
