There is not enough info to work with, but the first thing to look at would be the 3/8 tube that runs from the valve to the brine tank fill tube or the safety float, and make sure the connections are tight, and the tube is not brittle or cracked. If so, then the unit will not draw the correct amount of brine if any at all, however the valve will cycle as normal and replace the correct amount of water into the brine tank, thus over filling the tank and flooding the garage floor,

Tip

Water softener salt bridging


One of the most frequent problems with water softening systems is salt bridging in the salt/brine tank. There are several reasons for salt bridging to occur. This generally occurs when pellet type salts or potassium chloride is used to regenerate the water softening system. Pellet type salts contain binding agents that in turn give the salt a very starchy consistency when wet. As water evaporates in the brine tank the pellet salts partially dissolve, bind together and form a "salt bridge" in the tank. Potassium chloride (Kcl) acts in the same way. Excess water in the salt tank, with high salt levels, can also cause salt bridging. Improper softener brining and lack of proper brine refill will cause bridging to occur as well.

What is the best way to alleviate these problems?

1. When using pellet type salts or potassium chloride only keep the salt tank about 1/2 full. This prevents too much compaction of the salts and helps to prevent bridging. When using potassium chloride get the salt tank off the floor on a wooden platform to prevent wicking of moisture from concrete floors.

2. Use a high grade of salt. Most water treatment dealers use either
DuraCube or HardiCube water softener salts produced by Cargill Corp.
Cargill has a link to find dealers in your area.
https://saltapps.cargill.com/cargillsalt/product_locator_new.asp

Solar Salt is another option as the crystal structure is very hard and virtually impossible to bridge. This is also available from many Cargill salt dealers and in stores.

3. Let the salt tank run down to 80-100lbs of salt or potassium a couple times per year to help prevent buildup of dissolved salts in brine tank.

4. Yearly maintenance of the water treatment system helps also. Restrictions in the brining system (injector/eductor assembly) caused by sediment and oxidized iron buildup cause improper brining and too much water in salt tank during refill. Have this assembly cleaned yearly. Have the water tested to see if the water chemistry or usage have changed and adjustments to the system are necessary.

5. Avoid using rock salts to prevent buildup of sediment in brine tank (which causes service problems).

Practice these tips and you will have fewer water softener problems and more consistent quality softened water.

I wish you good water!

Maytag MDB4621AWB0 The pump runs but nothing comes out the drain. The hose is disconnected, so there in no problem outside the dishwasher.


This is a typical Anti Flood system activation. This system activates when water leaks onto the floor of the machiene due to a leak fault (pipe/hose clamp/ partly blocked pipe). The machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and stops water inlet. The anti flood system is a polystireen float / micro switch at the base of the machiene floor. Dry the floor and drectify the leak and it should work.

Kenmore water softener tank flooded; no soft water


Well, there was no good solution. I capitulated and called in a professional Sears repair guy. He was as baffled as I about what was wrong. We just started throwing parts at it until the problem subsided. We finally decided there must have been a tiny vacuum leak somewhere, probably in some rubber part.

Engine Floods after brief start and run when cold -then shut off


Local mechanic determined engine was flooded and started it by holding throttle to the floor and cranking 5-7 seconds - then the engine sputtered to life. It has run perfectly before and since and I'm at a bit of loss to understand why this occurred this one time - so far. It's been driven now 5 days with no problems.
