    My water softener keeps running water like it is recharging, it is a whirlpool brand, what could cause this?

    It could be something preventing the motor from functioning, or a broken gear, or now electrical power.

    Until you figure it out put the softener in bypass.

    Take off the cover and look at the "pointer" and let us know what position it's in. It should indicate "S" for service unless recharging.
    You can also put the unit in service mode and exercise the gear & valve mechanism. See your manual to do that.
    Like Gary said, it sounds like the valve is binding or stuck in a position other than "S". This is not uncommon for these Ecowater disc-type valves.
