My Kenmore Ultrasoft 400 water softener tome light will not stop blinking. How do I reset it

It's been 10 years since I worked at EcoWater, but the Kenmore Ultrasoft 400 shouldn't have changed much. The brine tank light shouldn't blink at all. It should light for 4 minutes and then go out if you leave the door open if I remember correctly. How old is your softener and does it have a light bulb or an LED to light up the brine well? It's most likely a damaged control board that's creating your problem. You'll have to contact Sears for a replacement.

(EcoWater Systems LLC is the OEM [Original Equipment Manufacturer] of water softeners for Sears Kenmore, GE, Whirlpool, Morton Salt, EcoWater Systems dealers and a few others.)

Why is water standing in brine tank of whirlpool whes30 water softener

Brine tanks are normally always precharged with water ready for next regeneration. It also allows contact time to ensure correct brine solution.

My softener sucked all the brine out of the brine tank the last time it regenerated, now it will not fill back up?

It is not going into brine refill. There may be a restriction (debris) at the float assembly in brine tank. or the refill piston in valve may be bad.

It looks that water is leaking from the - Culligan water softner

Look down the tube (where the float assembly is) there should only be about 10-12" of water in there. For water to reach the brine tank over flow the tank would have to be 3/4 of water. Brine tanks can develop leaks over time if they were set on uneven ground or if any rocks or debris are under it. If there is no evidence of water running down the side of the brine tank this is the most likely cause. Also if it has been leaking for some time there will salt buildup around the brine tank. Check the water softener for any leaks also. At times a small leak from the softener will find it's way over to the brine tank and collect around the bottom of it.

Have an rainsoft Q10 classic apollo softner that does not draw brine. Ran a wire thru the brine injecter tube and it appeared to be clear of obstruction. Drained tri-guard glass did startcycle and redrew...

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.

Kinetico Water Softening Unit has brine tank drainage problem

This sounds like the resin cylinder is perforated or connections at the top are leaking. The brine tank should only have a little water in the bottom - if it is full of water (maybe even up to the overflow?) then you will need to replace the resin cylinder or fix a leaky connection to it.

Is the water in the brine tank 'rusty'?

Brine tank does not fill

If the brine tank is not refilling with water this indicates there is a restriction in the brine refill assembly or the refill piston is bad. Depending on the model this restriction could be either in the top of the float assembly or in the brine refill itself.
