Kenmore water softener model #625.383760 continually runs, fills up brine tank with water and overflows onto floor.
Kenmore water softener model #625.383760. There are no alert messages / codes on the electronic display. I observe that there is a small, but steady stream of water coming from the top side of valve / manifold. This valve is the one that is circular and held down with 8 screws (see part #45 on page 46 of the manual). I push bypass valve stem inward closing the inlet and outlet valves. I remove motor (2 screws) and top valve cover (8 screws). Upon lifting the top half, the 4.5" O-ring seal (part #16 on page 46) appears to be loose. Other O-rings seem to be snug in place on disc. Question one: Show I focus my inspection on the o-rings? Question two: Does the 4.5" O-ring need to fit snag on one of the assembly pieces? If this does not, would that yield the problem I am experiencing? Question three: If o-rings / gaskets are the problem, do I need to inspect part #17 (rotor seal). How should it look? It seems to sit in position. Appreciate your guidance.

i'm hoping that over flow did not make too large of a mess for you to clean up. in regards to the motor running all of the time, i've been able to locate a link that addresses that issue. review the link below while your question is forwarded to an expert. that person should get back to you within a day or two. until then, have a nice morning.
