How does the resin supposed to look like? (Sears Kenmore water softener MODEL # 625.38817)

I have a Sears Kenmore water softener MODEL # 625.388170 Serial #9856. My concern is the resin tank and the resin that goes inside of it.

My washing machine supply lines keep getting plugged up with what looks like the resin from the tank. It's light brown and very fine particles. It's also clogging my faucets.

My question is: what is the resin supposed to look like? Both good and bad.

Mine is like a mush inside the resin tank. Is that normal??? Thank You very much for your time and expertise.

Sincerely, Robert Hutcherson
