Ry ecently purchased home has a softener. I don't see any model # or serial # on it. My question is how do I know if the unit is functioning ?


Is it plugged in? Is there salt in the brine tank? Do you ever hear it recharge (usually around 2 am). Does the display show any information on it (time of day, etc)?
Now if it "is" working, do you have soft water? When you run the faucet and lather up with soap, does it form lots and lots of soap bubbles?
You can take a sample of tap water to a local softener supply or one of the big box stores and have them test it for you. If you have soft water <1ppm hardness, just keep adding salt. If not, perhaps your existing softener needs cleaning. Don't let a softener salesman bully you into spending $$$$ if it isn't working. (Most softeners can be fixed with simple maintenance.)

How do I reset the time?


Very common with this type of unit. The switches are prone to corrosion and failure. You can buy a new timer from Sears (~$150) or off Ebay (~$100), or use a simple, no tools procedure, I use on my Sears softener.

-Unplug the softener.
-Carefully remove the top cover from the softener (usually 2 tabs in front and 2 in back).
-remove the timer panel (mine is held on by 2 tabs, one on each side).
-unplug the wiring to the timer.
-remove the timer (mine is held in place by a little plastic hook at each corner, remove one side and first and then the other.
-with the timer out, you can see the switches. while pressing on one of the switches, move your finger in a circular pattern (this rubs the contacts together on the inside of the switch, allowing the contact material to "grind" through the corrosion). Do this with all the switches.
-to reinstall, reverse the processes.

Is it any user manual available in the web? I could not find any :)


i dont think you can but you can use the instructions below to operate you washing machine

Washing machines may have different technology, but ultimately have the same features and purposes. They all require the proper settings, soap, water and clothes to wash. Yet, there are some things you should know to properly use a washing machine. Follow these steps for success in doing your laundry.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Instructions

  1. Read thoroughly your washing machine owner's manual. These instructions are designed for your particular washing machine. If you don't have an owner's manual, read the button control labels on your washing machine to get an idea of what they do.
  2. Sort your clothes. You should wash white or light-colored clothes together and dark-colored clothes together. Clothes should be further sorted according to their material. Heavy fabrics should be washed together and light fabrics should be washed together.
  3. Add detergent to your washing machine. Follow the instructions on the detergent box. The detergent should go on the bottom of the washing machine unless your washing machine instruction manual specifies otherwise.
  4. Use the special bleach or fabric softener dispensers for your particular washing machine, if you are adding bleach or fabric softener. Otherwise, follow the instructions on the bleach and fabric softener packaging to find out how much and when you should add them to the washing machine.
  5. Load your clothes loosely into the washing machine. Load the laundry as high as your owner's manual specifies or to the top row of holes in the tub.
  6. Close the lid and set the controls of your washing machine according to what you are washing. Use hot water for only white cottons. Use warm or cold water for colored fabrics. Set the other controls according to the weight and durability of your clothing.
  7. Turn on your washing machine. Allow it to work through all of the cycles and turn itself off before you unload the washed laundry.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });
Tips & Warnings
  • If you're going on vacation or not going to be using your washing machine for awhile, turn off the water faucets to your machine. It will relieve pressure on hoses and valves and minimize any leakage, should it occur.
  • Do not leave coins, nails, screws or anything else in the pockets of your clothes when putting them in the washing machine. They could easily cause damage or even puncture a hole in the drum.
  • Do not wash items that have been spotted or soaked with combustible substances. They could ignite or explode.
  • If you haven't used your washing machine for at least two weeks, and haven't used any hot water in your household, turn on your hot water faucets. Allow them to run for several minutes to release any built up hydrogen gas in your water heater.

Have Error Code E20 - won't drain. How do I approach?



The diagnostic test is used to check individual component function only. TO START THE TEST: • Turn the Program Knob to the start position, Spin Only. • Press Start/Pause to start the cycle and save it. • Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LEDs. • Press Cancel again to turn on the LEDs. • Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Options and Start/Pause buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then release buttons. 1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in that cluster at one time to confirm functionality. 2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water should enter through the detergent compartment. 3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water should enter through the bleach compartment. 4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and cold water should enter through the softener compartment. 5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door can be opened.When the door is opened, the drum light should turn on. 6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The washer will fill and tumble. Once tumbling has started, the Boost Heater (if so equipped) will turn on. 7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The drain pump & door lock solenoid will activate and the washer will operate in high spin. 8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last error code. Exiting Diagnostic Mode There are two options for exiting theDiagnosticTestmode and returning the washer to normal operation: a) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR b) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after the start position. Press Options and Start/Pause buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear.

Dishwasher will not start.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry



Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My Bosch Classixx dishwasher is using all the salt in one wash.Why and how do I resolve?


In order to rinse dishes and glasses satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft water, i.e. containing little or no lime, otherwise water stains will be left behind on crockery and glasses, etc. If the tap water exceeds a certain level of hardness, it must be softened, i.e. decalcified, so that it can be used in the dishwasher. his is achieved by adding a special salt to the water softener inside the dishwasher. The water softener, that is the required amount of salt, is set up according to how hard the tap water is.


Setting up the water softener

Determine the level of hardness of your tap water. Your local water company or service agent can help you with this. Identify setting from the following water hardness table.


Press and hold the B programme button, and set the main switch to ON, before releasing the programme button again.

The indicator lamp for the B button flashes, as does the figure in the numerical display. The latter represents the value that was preset in the factory.

To change the setting:

Press the B programme button.

Every time the button is pressed, the figure increases by one. After reaching 7 the display starts at 0 again.

Set the main switch OFF. The new setting is stored in the appliance’s memory.

Approx. 4 litres of water are required for regenerating the water softening system. The overall water consumption per load can therefore be increased by between 0 and a maximum of 4 litres according to the water hardness setting.
