Which Valve Size - 3/4" or 1" Valve for Rotor Disc and Seal Kit?
Last Updated: 02/06/2013
Note there are Two Size Valves,
And they use different size Seal Kits and Rotor Discs ( and Valve Body, Valve Cover, By Pass, etc ).
The Standard Version Seal Kit ( 7129716, WS35X10005 ) we sell is commonly used and smaller in size than the 1" valve version, so please check before ordering.
And the LARGER SIZE:
The Larger 1" Version Seal Kit ( 7185487, WS35X10020 ) is a full 1" larger, so please check if you are not sure before ordering.
For Model Number Reference, as to whether yours is 3/4" or 1" Valve design, see the Service Manual Listings on our website,
SEARS - Kenmore
Also you should take a look at this animation from the Morton softener site - the link is below.
Their softener is another variant of the Ecowater/NorthStar/Sear/GE Smartwater type system.
The animations are almost identical to the animations on the Kenmore site, except the Morton animation also
shows the flow paths, dis-assembly and reassembly of the complete valve body, including all the o-rings.
It also shows the complete float assembly - Kenmore site doesn't show either of these assemblies last time I checked.
After the link is pulled up you have the option to run program - I had to click the button twice
- may just be my browser but I figured I'd mention it.
