                        • Do I need to use dishwasher salt in my dishwasher?

                          Dishwasher salt softens very hard water and is used in countries where there is very hard water that will lead to scaling. Australian drinking water supply is rated as soft to moderately hard and as such scaling is not generally an issue. Therefore dishwasher salt is not required for Australian water conditions.

                          But there is a salt dispenser in my dishwasher, so why shouldn’t I use it?

                          Bosch dishwashers are manufactured in our factories in Germany and other parts of Europe where the water is hard. The same basic dishwasher platform (which includes a water softening unit and salt dispenser) is used in dishwashers that are manufactured for a number of countries that Bosch supplies dishwashers to. 

                          As such, Bosch dishwashers sold in Australia may include a salt container for the water softening system. However, as Australian water is soft water, the water softening  system and salt dispenser is disabled in models made for the Australian market. Adding special dishwasher salt to the dispenser is not required, it is not recommended  and will have no affect on the water quality.

                          Users are recommended not to add anything to their Bosch dishwasher other than recommended Finish products.

                          I’ve been told I can just use ordinary table salt in my dishwasher. Is this okay?

                          No - you should only use recommended dishwashing products in your dishwasher. As noted above, special dishwasher salt is not required in Australia and Bosch does not recommend the use of any additive other than recommended Finish products.

                        • How should I load my Bosch dishwasher?
