I have multiple salted hashes and I know the passwords, but I want to know the algorithm used to make the hash.

For example,

hash dcdc884c4ead4f713e9d15c1e14f5b07dfe184ea salt 93295 password xx123123

Is there a way to know that? Thank you.

    Hashcat has a list for password hashing. Check your output size, eliminate non-matching, then make sure that the rest uses salt, too. Now, on the remaining list, try each of them one by one.

    The hash that you posted is 40 hexadecimal characters in length, so that's 20 bytes, or 160 bits - so it's likely SHA1. As to how the salt is combined with the password, the number of iterations, etc. - that's a matter of trial and error.

You can simply use designated tools for this purpose.
