Water Softeners work by flushing salt (Sodium) through an Ion Exchanger. The Ion Exchanger is full of special resins which are 'charged' by the sodium. As water passes through the charged ions, this attracts the Calcium Ions out of the hard water.
At the end of each dishwasher cycle, salt is flushed into the Ion Exchanger ready for the next wash........simple but very effective!
Always keep the Salt reservoir topped up with Salt Granuals, Salt Tablets or Dendritic salt granuals.
P.S Those "3 in 1 Tablets" unlike Ronseal DO NOT DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE TIN
