Could be one of several things... Is it plugged in/GFI circuit tripped? Is it using salt? Have you tried a manual regeneration? What was done during the last service? Check all these things, could be one or more...

No Hot Water

Hard water contains a lot of minerals and depending on how hard the water is also depends on how often you must replace the filters. A much better alternative is to have a water softener installed before your hot water heater and any other sorce of domestic water supplying your home. I have one and it works great. Just be advised that you will need to replace the salt crystals every couple of months depending on the time intervals you set the timer to. If you find that the water still remains soft after two months and your filters are not to badly clogged then you may try adding salt every three or four months and see if that solves your problem. You also have to remember that your also using the water for drinking cooking and bathing so softening your water supply is very important especially if you or anyone in your household ever had any kidney stones or kidney problems.

Good luck,

What is it doing? No soft water? What is the water analysis? Try manually regenerating 2x in same day. Make sure a bypass valve is NOT open. I need more info to help.

Cullihan water softener-No water in tank-Orange water in house-Salt level measured 3 months ago, has remained the same. ( no salt used ) Repair man claims to have fixed the timer 45 days ago.

the way a water softener is set by , goes off the hardness of the water and how much water you use. Doing a manual cycle will show you if its at least working or not. If nothing happens when you do a manual cycle then you should call back the repair man and have him look at again. The float might be stuck in the brine tank, you can try emptying the salt and cleaning the salt tank out side with a hose, spray water in to the float and make sure is clean and free . Add salt with 3 gallons of water and do a manual cycle. If this still doesn't work then it could be a stuck valve inside the water softener that is stuck closed.

Water colects in lid sometime during the cycle.Drains onto washed clothes when lifting the lid to remove clothes. Water seems to be combined with fabric softener. Bleach holder also is filled with water....

I had the exact same problem. The problem is that your fabric softener dispenser is clogged up with a lot of dried, sticky fabric softener. The flooding comes from the part of the cycle when water that is to be flushed through the fabric softener dispenser can't drain properly so it spills into the bleach dispenser and onto the top and into the lid gasket as well.

To remove the dispenser for cleaning, you need to open the top of the washer. (First pull it away from the wall.) Carefully pry off the little emblem in the front center of the washer lid. Then remove the screw. Then slide the top forward to you about a 1/2 inch and prop it up carefully.

You then need to remove both hoses that are attached to the bleach and fabric softener dispenser (part of the same unit). Then unsnap the combined unit from the washer top. Then clean all the gunk out by running it under scalding hot water in the laundry tub and swirling the gunk out. Don't attampt to remove the blue round fabric dispenser part from the unit.

Put it all back together and you're good until you clog it up again with too much fabric softener; maybe several years again.

Good luck.

Machine not heating - Faema E98

If reset is used alot it is possible that it is time to replace it. You should think of installing a water softener on the inline water(everpure7S0). For the machine being out of water is the probe on the boiler or in the sight glass?
If it is on the sight glass talk to the service people and see if they can refit it to the boiler that way it will be in contact with the water in the boiler and not whats in the sight glass, as those holes get clogged easily.
Have the element checked also, there might be a crack in the legs which could also be causing the thermostat to trip.

Washer leaves spots on clothing

It most likely is fabric softener. You need to clean dispenser with hot water, if this has one. In real cold water the softener won't disolve properly and will cause this to happen.
