Check the instructions which are freely available from www.miele.co.uk or the relevant site for your country. Browse to the current models and you should find the PDF for your model. For non-current models, instructions are under the link "Customer Support".
\015\012
\015\012In general, the instructions are as follows:
\015\012If the water in your area is very soft and constantly lower than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need to add dishwasher salt. The water softener must, however, still be programmed to correspond to the water hardness level in your area. (The salt indicator light will still come on, but should be ignored).
\015\012
\015\012Important: Before filling the salt reservoir with dishwasher salt for the first time, you must fill it with approx. 2 litres of water to enable the salt to dissolve. Once the dishwasher has been used, there is always sufficient water in the reservoir.
\015\012
\015\012Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid dishwasher detergent always leads to serious damage to the water softener. Make sure you have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling the salt reservoir!
\015\012
\015\012Only use special coarse grained dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do not use other salts such as cooking salt, agricultural grade or gritting salt. These may contain insoluble additives which can impair the functioning of the water softener.
\015\012
\015\012To refill:
\015\012* Remove the lower basket and unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
\015\012* Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres of water (first use).
\015\012* Place the funnel provided over the salt reservoir and carefully fill with salt until the reservoir is full. The salt reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt depending on the brand used.
\015\012
\015\012As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced water will overflow.
\015\012* Clean any excess salt from around the reservoir opening and then screw the cap on again firmly.
\015\012* Run the "Pre-wash" programme immediately to remove any traces of salt water from the cabinet.
\015\012
\015\012For the Miele, the salt reservoir is usually under the bottom basket, the cap is usually grey in colour. [Only the latest models have the refill cap in the door itself].
\015\012
\015\012You should be able to find dishwasher salt just about anywhere, I've even found it in Malaysia, sold at good ol' Tesco!! Brands of salt include Calgonit (Finish) & Somat.

Model Ariston AFA370X - This query is for my daughter who is currently house sitting and can't find any manual for the machine.

We've got Beko DE 2542 FW Slimline dishwasher. Everything switches on as it is supposed to but nothing happens. Rinse aid and Salt indicator red light is not on, because we've filled them up. Switched on dishwasher, green light for "On" comes on. Selected programme level, pressed start. Green light comes on for "Wash" Nothing happens - we've left it overnight but nothing happens. What seems to be the problem? Look forward to hearing the solution.

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.

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?


Hi.This is not a PC, when logic board is fried the machine does not start at all rather than doing weird thing.The logic board is not fried, in the worst case the salt sensor is jammed. Try first pouring a couple of litres of hot wa ... Miele 24 in. Novotronic G641 Plus Built-In Dishwasher

Model KUDS30FXSSO, Unit attempts to start. Blue light on the front of the door comes on indicating the cycle is starting. Pump runs a few seconds as normal. Then the maching sounds like it trying to start the next step three or four times. The blue light goes out. The washing cycle then switches to cancel/drain, ( I opened the door to see which control lights were on.) runs the drain pump then stops. The green light on the front panel does not come on indicating the cycle was completed.

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
