Rinse aid and dishwasher salt are agents which ensure you get the best washing and drying performance from your dishwasher. You need to replenish these agents regularly.
There are warning lights on some appliance’s front display which indicate when the appliance is running low on rinse aid and dishwasher salt.
Refilling rinse aid
Rinse aid disperses water from the surface of your dishes during the final rinse and helps with the drying process. It prevents water droplets from drying on your dishes and leaving water marks.
When the rinse aid light on your dishwasher comes on, it’s time to refill. The rinse aid reservoir is located on the inside of your dishwasher’s door, next to the detergent reservoir. Open the cover of the reservoir, pour in the rinse aid until the reservoir is full and close the cover.
Refilling dishwasher salt
Dishwasher salt is sold in granular form and helps your dishwasher’s internal softener unit reduce the hardness of your tap water.
When the salt light on your dishwasher comes on, it’s time to refill. The salt reservoir is located on the inside of your appliance, below and to the left of the bottom dish rack.
To access the reservoir, pull the bottom rack out and remove the protective cap of the salt reservoir. Pour in the salt until it reaches the top of the reservoir, then close the cap.
Dishwasher salt reservoirs contain water, and this water may overflow when you fill the reservoir with salt. Salt may also spill inside the appliance while refilling the salt reservoir. Salt inside the dishwasher tub may scratch glassware.
To minimize salt spills, use the funnel provided with your Beko dishwasher when pouring salt into the reservoir, and be sure to wipe away any overflowing water or salt granules. Close the reservoir lid tightly after refilling it.
Run a prewash programme or the shortest programme to wash away any salt that may have been spilled inside the appliance. Salt granules under the lid will dissolve during prewash and may cause the lid to loosen. Check the lid at the end of the programme and close it firmly.
