It is running to drain. The sealpack (main piston & sealpack are one unit) is bad and needs to be replaced. If you are handy you can do this yourself. There is a retrofit kit to help repair these issues. It is only available at Culligan. It is about $10.

    Hello. I know this is a very old topic, but I am have been having this same issue. Culligan has replaced the sealpack 4 times in past 2 years. It's been explained to me that this is a commonly recurring issue. Is this true? Should I expect to replace this assembly every 6 months? These service calls are getting expensive.

    Tryan sorry for the delay. No the sealpack should not have to be replaced every 6 months. Possibly every few years. This a common tactic with Culligan now, inferior parts and mis-diagnosis of actual problem. A sealpack being replaced this often is an indication of sediment, scale or sand in the incoming water supply. This "scores" the seals and a leak occurs in the sealpack commonly causing the unit to run to drain, not draw brine properly and put too much water in the brine tank. Which may or may not overflow the brine tank. I would suggest adding a sediment prefilter or finer micron filter (5-10) microns before softener. I hate to say it but now that their parts are made overseas the quality and durability are very bad. Consequently LOTS of service calls.

My pressure is bad


Most likely a failing water softner. Have it services asap. Or replace the resin yourself but do it quickly. Bypass the softner in the mean time. There is a valve assembly on the head of the softner. Set it to bypass.

Just replaced old softner w/new whirlpool 40,000. Hooked up correctly, regenerated w/ 6 tblsp bleach before use, tested/set hardness, Water is not soft....why?


Is the "bypass valve" in the correct position. I would suggest flushing the water heater at the boiler drain, bottom of tank to assure soft water in WH. Make sure there is salt in brine tank and manually regenerate the softener 3 days in a row. Retest water.

You can try a few differnt things, staining is usually caused by not hot enough water to disolve or hard water issues. A Washer cleaning use one gallon white vingar fill up washer with hot HOT water let sit over night than run washer next day on HOT hot. Second try washing in warm to hot water dluting softner more breaks down better. Also dluting the softner more in the cup will help washing in cold causes alot of these issues, Make sure water heater turned up hot enough, make sure washer has hot water fill?

My Culligan MC450S water softner has a blank flashing display. Water seems to be constantly running through the softner and pressing any display panel buttons has no effect.


This system should be under warranty still. If it is running to drain constantly bypass the system and call Culligan for service. Unplug it for 2 minutes and it may reset.

I have culligan house water softner. after i changed my hot water heater my softner stopped working. I dont have a manual to check. any suggestions?


Unless the softener was bypassed when the water heater went in, installing a water heater has no bearing on the softener working or not. Is it unplugged?

If your using the correct bypass plug which came with the refrigerator , the water dispensor should still work . Make sure the plug is very snuggly , tight in place .

My mark 812 water softener just lets the water run out into the drain cant stop it unless I shut the water off


sometimes the heads go bad on those and they get stuck in a regeneration cycle that just flushes the tank out. put it on bypass or call your softner maker and alot of times they will help you diagnose it and send you replacement parts. also some of the softner heads use small electric motors that get siezed as well

Liquid Softener was clogged up over time.
1-Put hot water in the place of the Softener slowly and let it over flow to dissolve the solidified liquid.
