Aaeg dishwasher - the salt holder appears to have two compartments.

This answer was rated:

Aaeg dishwasher - the salt holder appears to have two compartments. One holds the salt while the other, which is part of the same moulding but not actually connected to the salt bit, is full of orange grunge. What is this part for? The is only one pipe going into it so there is no thru flow

That pot you see with the orange grunge is the resin pot. That's ment to be like that as that's the softner chamber so the water flows into there and the resin softens the water. Then the salt is used to clean the resin up so that's what that chamber does. Its only water softner on the dishwasher.
If theres anything else you need to know just get back to me.
