GE GXSF27 Too much water

I am having a problem with my water softner. There is too much water in the tank and it is recycling but I am not get soft water. I have cleaned as many parts and pieces and i can and it still isn't working properly. The Float stop seems to be fixed in place and won't move, is this normal?

Any suggestions outside of buying a new one?

The float stem should move up and down freely when not in a regen. Put unit in brine cycle and disconnect brine nut from venturi housing. Should have a draw. If not, could be venturi, venturi gasket, or fig 8 o ring.

The venturi system is clean. I tried the doiy guide attached and the venturi housing is pushing out water instead of suction in the brine cycle. should it be?

http://www.kenmorewater.com/website/.../ts_index.html This links the brine draw water enters from the left port. Put unit on bypass, move to brine draw cycle, remove clip from venturi housing and pull away from main body. Slowly open the bypass and look to see if water is only coming from the left side. If it comes out from the right AT ALL (drip ect.......), it's the fig 8 oring. This links shows fig 8 oring. http://www.kenmorewater.com/website/.../ts_index.html
