The drain float seems to be stuck. Move it up and down , sometimes this helps loosen it to allow it to close.

Your softener valve has some rubber gaskets in it that need to be replaced. Hard water over time will rot these gaskets and cause water to keep running out the drain.

The fastest I ever saw a Kenmore softener thrown in the dump was seven weeks old. This was at the owner's insistence; just wouldn't remove iron. He bought an Autotrol with a turbulator from me. This was about 15 years ago and it still works just fine. He had his first service call 2 years ago. I've always thought that quality was more important than price, but if you wish to install yourself I can come so close to the "sale" price of a Kenmore.

Is there a reset button for a hard water softener


No. But if you are experiencing hard water problems or ran out of salt and have added salt now you need to push the regen button to manually regenerate the softener. This needs to be done 3 days in a row to regain soft water.

Water level after regen is over half the way up the brine tank


The eductor assembly is plugged. This will cause the unit to not draw brine but will keep re-filling salt tank causing high water in tank.
Take the cover off the control. On the left side of control there is small dome shaped apparatus. The"eductor assembly" is inside here. By-pass the softener, run it through a quick regeneration (to depressurize the system) Hold the regen button down until it starts through cycle, then push regen to cycle through each step of regen until it goes back to service. You will see this (S) on top of the valve where the main drive gear is.
When depressurized, take the lid off the eductor housing, disassemble and clean all the small holes completely. Be cautious of small nozzles and small screen in system as they can be easily lost.
Re-assemble, put water back to unit. Run through manual cycle again.
1. Refill
2. Backwash
3. Brine draw
4. Rinse
Then advance to backwash and let system go through complete regeneration.
You will have to bail most of the water out of salt tank as it will never draw it back down to proper level with that much water in tank. About 4" of water.

How do i increase softness


A water softener ether softens or it doesn't. If you are getting hardness leak through continually check to make sure that the bypass valve is closed completely. ( the handle where the pipes go into and out of the softener, make sure the pointer is pointing to service). If you are getting soft water most of the time and it goes hard just before regeneration check the incoming water hardness, if it has gone up you will need to adjust the hardness setting on the unit or if it operates on time, set it to regenerate more often.

Constant flow from my culligan soft minder twin water softner


A constant drip to drain or brine refill indicates a problem with the seals in the valve. You need to determine which tank is leaking. The piston and seals need to be replaced.
