Having problems with your Danby 17 in. DDW1802W Designer Series Built-in Dishwasher ?

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.

\015\012I hope I understand you. This is how it's suposed to work. The salt in a water softener is only used for backwashig the filter. It should be set to backwash once or twice a week when nobody is useing the water, useually 2am or 3am. The only time you can get salt at the fixture is if you're backwashing when you use the water. If you're backwashing all the time either the controls aren't set right or the unit is defective, in which case it is unlikely you can fix it. In that case you might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman. If it's still under warranty, it's time to make a phone call.

Our maytag is about ten years old. No big problems that a little vinegar wouldn't solve once in awhile. Lately, we ran out of water softener salt and a white film was on dishes and not getting clean. I filled the water softener again, and did the vinegar wash, which helped a little. Now dishes not getting clean. I got desperate and did an empty load with CLR in it. Still, not effective. I feel as if something is clogged with lime or calcium since a pan placed in there on bottom shelf still had

Both dish drawers are leaving a chalky dried on residue on the dishes. I ran a cleaning detergent in both drawers, made sure salt in water softener was filled, checked filters, and they are still leaving residue. I've tried washing the dishes after to get the residue off and it is hard to remove. Also, I have not changed dish detergents.

I have just bought a cid60b10 dishwasher and it won't work! I completed the first wash putting water in the salt dispenser as instructed and when it had finished the wash there was still water in the bottom of the washer. Now when I turn the machine on all the buttons light up and then go off and I cannot select a function. Does anyone know how I can fix it without having to send for a technician?

I poured 2 pints of warm water to break solidified tablet salt, I found moist salt, but very little water in salt tank. I regenerated. I hear water going down the drain. Please could you tell me which pipe brings water in the salt tank, and what level of water should be visible, How is the water replenished in the salt tank? and how that level is maintained. Would you be kind enough to give me a wate

Hi. Just bought a Blomberg dishwasher & have a question about the water softening feature. What is the appropriate type of salt? The manual says no table salt, no coarst salt. It recommends a highly soluble type salt, fine-grained or powdered. What kind of salt is this? (And, why wouldn't water softening salt pellets work?)

I have a Kenmore Elite dishwasher (model 665.1315), and the dishwasher will run through the wash cycle as expected, but when it gets to the heated dry cycle , it doesn't appear to dry. It will then flash a fault code 81 (8 short flashes of the 'clean' light, pause, and then 1 more short flash of the 'clean' light, longer pause, and repeat the code). The dishes seem to be somewhat dry, but there is certainly water on the dishes and on the tub (there is never any water standing in the tub, and t

My Miele G641 displays the Salt PC light even after filling it with salt. I have to cycle the main power switch 3 or 4 times before the Start light will come on. Then when I press the Start button it momentarily pumps out water and then stops. Sometimes the Start light stays on and I can get it to give the pump another brief spurt, but often the Salt/PC light comes on again and the Start light goes out. I then have to re-set the power switch. How do I tell if the logic board is fried?
