Having problems with your Zanussi 24 in. ZSF6120 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

Too much salt

\015 My dishwasher is about 18 months old and has not been very good from new. However it has recently started using a lot of salt which gets left on the dishes after the machine has finished - not visibly but you can taste it!\015\012I have checked the top rack and for blockages in the upper and lower spraying arms (thanks to Lapin for the tips). Filters have also been cleaned (as they are regularly).\015\012Unfortunately that doesn't seem to have worked.\015\012The other sympton that has developed is a "sucking" noise when first switched on. It sounds a bit like a pump that is trying to work without any water in it but I could be wrong.\015\012Any help would be gratefully received.\015

Answers :

Don't know about this model, but if the salt pickup is inline with the water the water may not be flowing in fast enough and the reduced pressure may be letting the salt in. Anyway, final rinse should remove the salt. Try putting two clean glasses (no salt taste) in the unit, one upright and the other down. Run the unit with no soap and stop it after each cycle and check the glasses for salt. If you still have it after each cycle, try filling the unit from the sink manually before the final rinse. If salt's still present, something's leaking

Hi, I have a Hoover silent whisper HD98E dishwasher and it's leaking. I know where the leak comes from. Once the machine is on, it pumps the water through the salt container and through these 3 pronged blue container (located on the side). One of these prongs leaks. I believe it is the washer. Can you tell me where I can buy a new washer? Are they specific to Hoover dishwashers or can I get them from Plumbcenter? A quick answer would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
