SALT MONITOR SYSTEM
The water softener has a blue light that will flash to
remind you to add salt to the storage tank.
NOTE: You must set salt level each time salt is added
to the water softener.
NOTE: The salt monitor system estimates salt levels, and
accuracy will vary with different salts.
To set this monitor system:
1. Lift the salt lid and level the salt in the storage tank.
2. The yellow salt level decal, on the brinewell inside
the tank, has numbers from 0 to 8 (see Fig. 24).
Observe the highest number the leveled salt is at, or

1. To set any of these options, press and hold SELECT
for 3 seconds until “000” shows in the display. Then
press (do not hold) SELECT again to display one of
the “Salt Efficiency” screens shown below.
SALT EFFICIENCY: When this feature is ON, the
water softener will operate at salt efficiencies of
4000 grains of hardness per pound of salt or higher.
The softener may recharge more often using smaller
salt dosage and less water. This softener is shipped
with the efficiency feature set OFF. Installations in
the State of California require this setting to be
turned ON. Use the r UP or s DOWN buttons to
change between OFF and ON.
California Efficiency Requirement
Your Kenmore Water Softener has a “High
Efficiency” feature that can be set ON or OFF.
This softener is shipped with the efficiency feature
set OFF, which will utilize the maximum rated
capacity while most often achieving maximum salt
efficiencies. When installing this unit in the State
of California, you MUST turn the efficiency feature
ON. The softener may initiate more frequent
recharges, but it will operate at 4000 grains per
pound of salt or higher.
