    Dishwasher problem....marks on cutlery

    Hi sounds stupid but not sure if i have too much or too little salt in the dishwasher. My cutlery in particularly is coming out with a foggy look on it..sure this is to do with salt but not sure which. the cups also have a slight powdery look on them.
    any one had this problem. i have put salt in last week dont know if i have put too much in or if it needs more.
    thanks.

    I only topped that up a few days ago and noticed today its already low...may be there was an air bubble or something. Thanks will give that a go. repped you all. Cheers.

    Mine was doing this. I l;ive in a hard water area and it was limescale build up so I ran mine with descaler in. Is perfect now.

    That could very easily be the problem we have dreadful water here. i always get confused whether the water is hard or soft but our taps are dreadful. Teh kettle is constantly furred up. I dont even drink the water but buy bottled.
    Didnt realise you could buy descaler for the washing machine. is that something you put in everyday or is it a certain kind of washing tablet that has descaler in it. ?

    We are near Stamford so not that far from you so we probably have the same problem. i originally come from yorkshire and the water there was lovely.

    We have dreadful water here to (Peterborough), I refuse to drink the tap water I always filter it. You can buy Calgon for the washing machine & I believe there is also something similar for dishwashers :-D

    Thanks will have a good look at the supermarket.

    I used iron descaler - got it from currys but can't rememeber what it was called. All my glasses were cloudy too but now they're sparkling!
