Even if your dishwasher tablets contain salt it's important you keep the salt container filled up.

Use dishwasher salt every time, even if you use multi-detergent tablets, to:

  • prevent the formation of the limescale on the heater
  • get the best dish-washing performance
  • prevent the formation of white spots on glass

How to fill the salt container:

  • Unscrew the cap for the salt container, this will be located at the bottom of the machine cavity on the left-hand side.
  • Using the funnel that comes with your dishwasher, pour the salt into the container until full.
  • Screw the cap back on and wipe up any excess salt that may have been spilt.
  • Run a short cycle with the dishwasher empty to rinse away any leftover salt and avoid corrosion.
