Why does my dishwasher’s low salt light stay on?

LAfter the dishwashing salt is added to the salt tank, there is a process of dissolving. The concentration of the salt water must reach a certain value (usually a saturated state), and the special indicator light for insufficient salt will go out.

Of course, the premise of all this is that the dishwashing salt is added correctly. Generally speaking, it is mentioned in the instructions. If you lost the manual, you can refer to the following:

HOW SHOULD DISHWASHING SALT BE ADDED?

If there is an abnormality, such as the special salt low indicator light of the dishwasher is always on, there are three possible situations in the middle:

One is that the dishwashing salt is not added enough. After the salt is completely dissolved, the concentration of the brine will not reach saturation;

The second is that the dissolution time is not enough. Due to the difference in water quality and temperature, it generally takes 2 to 6 days for dishwashing salt to dissolve to saturation;

The third is that in the northern region, the water temperature is low, and no matter how long it takes, it is difficult for the salt to dissolve to saturation.

In these situations, you can try adding more dishwashing salt, and then stir it with chopsticks to speed up the dissolution of the salt. At the same time, adjust the gear of the special salt shortage indicator. Adjust back to the gear corresponding to the water quality.

If you have tried all the above methods and still cannot, it may be that the float in the water softener is broken, please contact the after-sales service.

By the way, there are actually cheaper and safer alternatives to dishwashing salt, as mentioned in the following article:
