Get an aqua vac and suck out the water (with the dissolved detergent)from the salt container. Refill it with water and repeat the process couple of times. Fill the container with water and salt and it should be fine. Good luck !!

SOURCE: 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.

Do not understand what the white spot on dial is for, on the 5600 water sofener.

The white dot you refer to is on the gallon wheel ? Upper right hand corner ??? That dot is the starting point for the gallon counter to read "soft water gallons used". If you turn that dial counter clockwise all the way around to "0", then turn the big main dial on the front...CLOCKWISE ONLY!!! this looks like an oven dial, you'll see that the gallon wheel will turn one complete revolution and end up back where it started, that is, the arrow will be opposite the white dot ! That white dot is critical to achieve the correct capacity recovery, based on how hard the water is and how big the cylinder is.

Have a fleck 5600 water softener timer (not economider) dont understand the setting of the days of week when there is 12 pointers on the skipper wheel?

The 12 day wheel is used primarily so that the unit does NOT regenerate on the same day of the week, every week.
There is a 7 day wheel available for this valve so if you irrigate on specific days, and you need it to cycle on specific days, you have the ability to do it without the softener cycling at the same time as watering schedule.

Water Softener won't regenerate


I see they charge for a user manual!

I am not familiar with this controller. Is there a manual overide - a large screwdriver slot on the frint of the main shaft?

If so, you should try turning that (clockwise) to the next position and see if the moter will drive it from there. If not, then take it right through 360 degrees, one step at a time.

If it does not work on the next cycle then you may have to replace the controller.

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.

Water softener seems to be draining all the time

I'm pretty sure this is the manual for your unit. It might not be exactly like the one you have but at least could give you info for it. This is something you might have to contact the manufacture for. Hope this helps!!
