Question and Answers

Q:

kenmore water softener model 625348490

A:

Thank you for your question on the salt storage area full of water.

The softener has a restriction in the venturi and is not drawing brine for cleaning the resin bed.

First unplug the softener for the outlet and push the bypass valve before you start the cleaning. The Err 1 code on the face plate instead of the time of day indicates an onboard diagnostics in the computer electronics has been triggered.

This can be caused by the motor not operating to turn the rotary valve or the valve itself cause high torque so the motor cannot turn the valve. Please check all wire connections in the wire harness to the switches, motor and to the plug on the back of the control board.

You will need to clean the venturi and then remove all the water and salt from the salt storage tank and put the salt back in and start over. Then plug the unit back in and set the clock and check the settings.

You can push regenerate now button to watch the motor and rotor to see if they will turn through the cycle. If the motor cannot turn the valve rotor then a new rotary valve kit may in order.

The instructions for cleaning the venturi is on the under side of the lid of the softener but I will also give you a link to Kenmore water.com for the interactive water softener site trouble shooting information.

Please let me know what you find out and we can continue to troubleshoot with that information. Sam A.

Q:

I am wondering what is comparable to the Kenmore water softner model 625348490.

A:

The Kenmore 300 Series water softener would be the closest current model to 625348490. If you are replacing this water softener with a new current model, I recommend going with the Kenmore 350 Series. The increased capacity and other features would be worth the slightly higher price.

I included some links below with product information regarding current Kenmore water softener models.

I you need more help or information, resubmit your question with additional details.
