    If so you might want to do this; remove the cartridge and put a 1/2-2/3rds liquid cup of non scented bleach in the housing and run water to all faucets in the house one at a time checking for chlorine smell with a glass as the water is running, bending over with your nose on the rim of the glass so you can smell the air coming out of the glass. That's so you don't run out of bleach before you're done with the last faucet. When done let the water sit in the plumbing for at least a half hour before flushing it out.

    If no disposable filter, then a 1/3 cup of bleach in a gallon of water poured into the water in your salt tank and do a manual regeneration pulling the plug on the control valve and putting the control in the by pass position when all the water that can be sucked out of the salt tank has been. Wait 30 minutes and plug the control in and put the by pass in Service and allow the unit to finish the regeneration.
    No disposable filter and thx for your process suggestion without one....

    Kind of sounds like you are for the most part locked out of the other side of the programing.
    Would need to know the valve control that is in question.
    Photo is the best ..

    Some one has done a number on either the Fleck or Clack...
    But if one goes on that it is the Clack control that is the base of this..

    Call Clack and ask for Bob Bishop.

    CAUTION, as of Nov 12 2013 all YouTube videos showing how to rebuild a Clack valve have an error in them that can cause damage.

    I guess you could call or contact Greenway or Clack. Or whoever you bought the thing from but...

    If the programing has you locked out and you don't have instructions on how to unlock it, you need the instructions either verbally over the phone as you unlock it or in print for use now and in the future. No?

    By pushing buttons attempting to get it to change the programming, you can lock it yourself.

    Just called Greenway and waiting on a response on my situation of smell
    and will ask them how to Unlock when they return the call.

    People that I bought it from are not too HOT, if you know what I mean.
    I think that from now on I will call directly myself the Greenway people.

    I locked myself out of my alarm system by changing the installers code. Basically the unit was trash at that point. They said I could send it to them and have it unlocked but with shipping I think I could buy a new "brain" for 20 bucks more.

    In this situation with it being water treatment they should be able to walk him through it like you say.

    try holding down the next and the minus for 5 seconds or the next and the plus. You can get the manual for a WS1 online and IIRC it programs pretty much the same

    My My,,, look at what I have found.
    http://www.greenwaywt.com//media/upl...l_REV04-26.pdf
    Sadly I did not see how to unlock the control...
    But the manual for the WS1 most likely has the code for unlocking, been awhile from the last time that I went through the book.

    Is that to get to the service programing or to unlock the control so that one can get to the service programing?

    That is the manual I have and read at least 10 times in case I missed something

    The greenway uses "NEXT and +" to get to the service programming but you cannot change the parameters
    such as Fill/Backwash/Brine etc etc...

    My goal was to increase the Backwash time.
    Still waiting on a call from Greenway
