Brine tank fills but doesn't draw it back into the water sosftener


Your injector is stuck. Your manual should show you, at the least,
a diagram; you'll need to clean out the center of the injector and lubricate the seals or o rings with silicone grease. You cannot use Vaseline; it'll attack the rubber. You should bail out the excess water from your salt tank. After you've got rid of the particle of dirt from the venturi in the injector and lubricated the seals or o rings with silicone lubricant, reassemble. Three manual regenerations over the next three days should bring your softener back to full function.

Water softener 1016182


We are going to need more information to assist you. Such as Model type: Gold series, Medallist, Silver, HE etc. and approximate age of unit. This information will either be on the back cover of the control panel or on the inside cover where you found the 1016182#.

Sestem is not using up salt and will not flush the lines when it is set up to .


Hi Joey,

There could be several reasons why your softener is not using salt. If it has a Demand Control the turbine that meters the water may be blocked and stuck so the softener doesn't realize that you are using any water, so it won't try to regenerate.

Your injector may be plugged, although this would cause the salt tank to become more full with each regeneration.

If you initiate a manual regeneration and regeneration does not happen you may need to replace the softener.

Knowing what make, model and age of your softener would help greatly in assessing. The best quality softeners last 15 to 18 years unless you have an Autotrol Turbulator in your softener, in which case add 25% more time; 19 to 23 years. There are a few brands that don't seem to last longer than 10 years...

the salt in use should water softener salt and nothing else
there is water added to the salt crystals up to the overflow hole
during regeneration that salty water (Brime) is drawn into the unit and upon finishing the process that reserve is refilled for the next time
there is little salt actually used during the regeneration process ( around 4 regenerations to a 25 kg bad )

You most likely have a slight leak in the brine line. This is the most common failure on a water softener. A slight leak will allow air to enter during brine draw, breaking the vacuum. it doesn't take much of leak, in fact it can be small enough that water does not leak out during brine refill but it will not draw brine. Check the compression fittings at the brine tank and the softener valve. disassemble the connection, cut back the tubing and reconnect. Other things to look for are low water pressure, the unit requires 25 psi minimum during regeneration. Also make sure the drain line is not restricted and the maximum head on the drain is 4' over the softener.

Regeneration is nightly as oppsoed to the prrprogrammed 14 days


"DAYS00" indicates it is set to run every day. You may have lost power and it reset to factory settings. If the Gold series softener you have is the Aqua Sensor model (this is a probe in the resin tank that senses a change in the water chemistry and sends a signal to regenerate) the probe can get coated with iron and will either send NO signal or a Constant signal which will make it regen every night.
Usually a Gold series softener is either set up as metered or aqua sensor. There is an option for an override (such as 14 days) or it can be set up as a time clock model. Unplug the softener for 2 minutes and plug back in, re-program the controls to "DAY14". Make sure what the system is suppose to be set up as, Meter, AS, Time Clock.
Here is a link to Culligan for the Gold manual.

You should put about a 5 gallon bucket of water in first. 6 inches of water is not enough to produce the brine solution needed to fully recharge your culligan. You don't need to take out the salt at this point, just add more water into the top of the salt, wait 3 hours and manual recharge your unit.

Salt for DDW1805 Danby


I use ordinary household water softener salt crystals, not pellets, or table salt. The table salt often is not as refined as softener crystals, and can damage the dishwasher's softener in time. Also, the water softener salt comes in a large bag (around 25-50 lbs) for about $6 US.
