To my understanding, dissolving in water has to do with the positive part of water molecules attracting the more negative parts of a molecule and the negative part of water molecules attracting the positive parts of the same molecule. If you have a higher difference in electronegativity (therefore has more ionic character) like salts, then the difference between the negative and positive parts of the molecule dissolving is high so its easier and faster for water to dissolve it.
Water is able to dissolve those ionic molecules because the attraction between the positive and negative parts of the water and the other molecule is able to separate the separate atoms of the ionic molecule from each other.
