They remove the excess minerals (calcium and magnesium) from the water.

Can u use water softner pellets direct in to water


Water softener salt is used to regenerate a water softener after the softener has been in operation for a few days removing hardness from the water. If you were to only add the salt to your water you would still have hard water but now it would become salty. Go to youtube and look up How does a water softener work? If you want to buy one go to wqa.org and find a Certified Water Specialist close to you. He or she will be one of the only 5% of water treatment people who have received formal training in how to fix your water. There is a lot that can be done to improve your water.

Will recharge/backwash clean out sediments


You can try several regenerations to see if it helps. But if the well guys did not "by-pass" the softener when working on the well and all that C!!##p got into the softener it is probably toast and either needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

Cabinet style water softeners (GE, Whirlpoool, Kenmore, Sears) are very inefficient at removing iron. They are not designed for water with high iron content such as yours. I might suggest setting the hardness level up as high as it can go (100gpg). Indications that water softener resin is getting fouled with iron are exactly as you described. Rusty water the day after a regeneration. You may need an iron filtration system before the softener so all the water softener has to do is remove the hardness.
Here is a link for an iron filtration system that works with air. Very simple, works very well.

What is it doing? No soft water? What is the water analysis? Try manually regenerating 2x in same day. Make sure a bypass valve is NOT open. I need more info to help.

Fabric softener dispenser fills up with clear water after washing cycle is complete. I do not use fabric softener .


Purchase some fabric softener and place it in its normal location at the beginning of the cycle. At the end of the cycle check to see if fabric softener has been dispensed and whether there is water in the cup.

If the fabric softener is gone, but there is water in the fabric softener cup, then your problem may be with the water valve assembly. The water valve assembly (as one complete unit) has a separate solenoid for hot and cold water temperatures, bleach and fabric softener. The fabric softener solenoid on the water valve assembly could be defective (allowing water to fill the fabric softener cup).

Contact an appliance service company.

I have recently moved into a house which has a water softener installed - doe sthi smean that I do not have to use salt or rinse aid in the dishwasher


You will need to use salt in the softener, and rinse aid in the dishwasher will help, but you won't need to use as much.

You do want to make sure the softener is working and is setup right. You can take a sample of water before the softener (maybe on an outside faucet) and have it analyzed for hardness. Then use the manual for the softener to adjust it for the level of hardness in your water.

If you have a septic system, this is crucial, because the softener will recharge itself at night and put extra water down the drain. If you recharge too often, you can overload the septic system.

My water softener seems to be working, but my water feels nasty, like it's not working


If you have a three valve bypass the center "bypass" may be open and letting hard water past softener.

Washing machine will not draw fabric conditioner


The Solution: Top up the softener tray with extra water so that it is up to the 'max level' mark.

The softener tray works by a siphon action. Thus, the reason the tray does not empty is that not enough water is added by the machine during the softening cycle, so that the machine does not completely fill the softening tray; only when the softening tray is filled beyond the 'max' mark does the siphon action works. A partially filled tray will never empty - it's impossible due to the siphon.

The reason that not enough water is added to the tray during the softening action is that the water inlet of the machine is partial blocked (you can try to fix that) but it is simpler to just added more water to the conditioner tray.

Thus, the easiest way to ensure that the softener tray empties every time (after adding the softener to the softener tray of course) is to top up the softener tray with extra water, top it up to the 'max level' line (keep a bottle of water by the machine). That way, even if only a little water is added to the softener tray during the softening cycle by the machine it is enough to trigger the siphon action and the tray will empty!

Works for me every time, and no need to remove any parts - I used to take the tray out, clean it, scrub the outlet holes that fill the tray etc, but they used to gum up again quite quickly!

Hope that helps

Not sure if you've ever resolved this issue, but I'm dealing with it myself. I have come across this service manual that gives a very detailed illustration of the systems, how it works and how to test it.
Focus on pages 15 thru 25. Hope this helps you.
