Softener not draining brine water from salt storage tank!

Hi,

I have a Kenmore Ultrasoft 100 water softener Model # 625.725112 which is not draining the water from the salt storage tank even after I cleaned all the nozzle/venturi parts, housing and else 2-3 times.

I checked all the parts and the flow plug which sits in the housing (HVDC) looks worn out. Could that be a problem?

Also I have been using the softener for the last 6 years or so but never used any raisin bed cleaner. Would cleaning that with a raisin bed cleaner help?

Also just like you sanitize the softener before you start using it, you put some bleach in the brine tank. Can I do the process again (after all the salt is gone from the tank) and use CLR instead of Bleach? The water in my area is very very hard and I'm sure I have blockages at several places.

Thanks and I'll be waiting for your response with all the details!
