HOW TO FILL THE SALT CONTAINER
From a water hardness category of 1-2 (medium), before using the
dishwasher, fill the salt container with regeneration salt (to find out the
hardness level of water in your area, contact your local Water Board or
check the last bill you received).
If the water hardness level does not correspond to position 3 on the
selector (factory setting) or if the water hardness level changes:
Turn the selector to the correct position
(for dishwashers without salt sensor only):

The float is clearly visible in the cap window when the salt container is full.
The float lowers and is no longer visible when the salt container is empty.
