Is the Water Softener required in the DeLonghi EC860

I purchased a DeLonghi EC860 and it workd great except for a leaking outlet ion the water tank, I contacted DeLonghi and a new tank will be shipped shortly. I now experianced that the water tank was not letting out water to the machine, I removed the Water softner filter and it works fine. In this area we have very soft water. My question: is the water softner filter Required?

Water softeners are generally helpful for maintaining a stable and consistent quality of the water going in.  If you have relatively soft water to start, it likely won't be of much benefit to you.  I would advise contacting DeLonghi to be absolutely certain of this, however, as they may have a better answer for you.
