Question about Home
I have a Whirlpool Model WHES40 water softener that has been working fine until recently. I cleaned the venturi and cycled thru the recharge cycle seevral times and everything worked fine. Now it appears that I am not using any salt and there is no evidence of the softener recycling during the nite. I assume the timer is malfunctioning as I reset the time and the softener failed to start a recharge cycle. Is the timer on the circuit board?

The pressure loss is due to either a plugged distributor/manifold or upper basket. The head must be removed for access to the manifold and upper basket. The manifold runs from the head to the bottom of the tank. This is where all the soft water is drawn from and is the most likely cause for pressure loss. Water must be shut off and tank depressurized before attempting to remove the head of softener to access these parts. Clean the slots in the manifold and upper basket. They are probably plugged with iron, resin and/or gravel and re-install.
