Dishwasher salt

I have a new dishwasher. I live in a hard water area, but have a plumbed in water softener in my house. What setting should I programme into my new dishwasher for its water softener? It is a Bosch and I do not want to damage it.

is there an option in the manual for softened water ? My one actually measures the hardness and tells you !

You still need to add salt though - I assumed you didn't need to with soft water - but you do

The manual says I have to ask my provider/utility company for the hardness level, and programme it in - but as my water is softened once it comes into the house, I am guessing that I should put in a lower figure - I have a choice of 0 - 7, and a hardness level of 0 - 50.

Why do things have to be so complicated????
