Should there be water in the salt compartment of a dishwasher?

Dishwasher salt is commonly used in dishwashers in Europe, and in the UK. When you go to fill the salt container, it may be full of water. Just put the salt in anyway; it will sink to the bottom and displace the water.

Also asked, what happens if you don't put salt in dishwasher?

Every dishwasher contains a water softener to remove lime and magnesium from the water. If this doesn't happen correctly, your dishes will start showing white stains. Without salt, your water softener would become saturated after a while, and wouldn't function properly anymore.

Also, why is there water in the bottom of my dishwasher? One of the most common reasons for water at the bottom of your dishwasher is because food particles or other debris have clogged the drainage system. Check the dishwasher drain and clean the drain basket around the lower sprayer arm, unclogging debris with a wire hanger.

In this manner, where is the salt reservoir on a dishwasher?

To add dishwasher salt:

  1. Locate the softener unit, usually located at the bottom of the dishwasher by the drain (below the bottom basket).
  2. Unscrew the cap and fill it with dishwasher salt.
  3. If the reservoir is full of water, you can still pour the salt in.
  4. Replace the cap.

Do you need salt and rinse aid with all in one dishwasher tablets?

According to cleaning product manufacturers, all-in-one products for dishwashers make regenerating salt and rinse aid superfluous. The rinse aid and salt functions are included in the tablet, along with other features. As a result, the customer no longer has to add salt and rinse aid.
