Whirlpool Tub Access

My daughter just purchased a new condo with an AquaLux whirlpool tub installed in the bathroom. The front side is removable for access to the mechanicals and is held in place on the lower side by velcro. When I pull the velcro loose the side begins to tilt up, but then stops as it hits the upper edge of the tub. I tried pulling down, but it appear to be held by something. I don't want to pull too hard and break something. Any ideas on how to remove it?

Hi garyv47,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Your daughter just purchased a new condo with an AquaLux whirlpool tub installed in the bathroom. The front side is removable for access to the mechanicals and is held in place on the lower side by velcro. When you pull the velcro loose the side begins to tilt up, but then stops as it hits the upper edge of the tub. You tried pulling down, but it appear to be held by something. You don't want to pull too hard and break something. Any ideas on how to remove it?

It has been my expirience that the top of these access panals are 'tongue and grove' type construction and are not connected to anything. Usually disconnecting the bottom and pulling the bottom out works. If you are concerned about breakage then it migt be wise to consider the Repair Directory to find a reparman. Or you could talk to the condo maintenance guy. You'll find these guys are a wealth of info.

I have a whirlpool tub and need to find some caps to cover the jets. Not sure what brand tub is, sides are all covered. Can you help?


try a plumbers shop as it is a whirlpool tub
you state that it is a whirlpool tub then you say don't know what brand of tub it is
whirlpool is a brand name
any way the plumbers display of bathroom units and tubs will help you as the jets used are generic and not specific for the tub

The push,turn on control has become very difficult to push on and off what can i do?


Disconnect power from the system. 2. Purchase a can of www.ultra-lube.com (This type f lubricant will not cause breakdown of rubber, silicone or plastic seals) multi purpose lube. HomeDepot sells it. Black green and silver spray can. 3. Remove the knob using the right size Allen wrench. 4. Spray lube into the neck of the actuator. 5. Wipe off any lube from the knob shaft. 6. Re install the knob and push pull a few times to distribute the lubricant. 7. Restore power and test system.

If this does not solve the problem then there may be a mechanical failure in progress. Go online at the manufactures website to order a new switch.

Removing gold toned grab bars and fixtures from old whirlpool tub


sometimes a plumber leaves an access panel to get at the drain and jets under the tub---it's usually small and may not be enough to get a body in---usually the grab bars are permanently glued or siliconed on a fiberglass/plastic tub....a cast iron, or other non-plastic type tub may have removable grab bars...look for access area, or you may just have to cut out a piece of the wall to look----or if you do find a small access panel, and can get a telescoping mirror to look back at the back of the grab bar underneath the tub, you will find your answer----or you could contact the original manufacturer of the tub, and they can tell you if the grab bars are removable....another solution is to coat/paint/sandblast the metal bars however you'd like them to be

I have a Whirlpool duet washer. It sounds like


Overfilling loads can cause small objects like pins, coins, and small socks to get between the tub abd Basket of your washer.

The basket is held onto the rear half of the outer tub simply by the bolt to the main pulley.
Remove the bolt, remove the pulley, and the basket shaft should slip right out of the bearings of
the rear tub.

Simply shining a light around between the basket and outer tub should confirm that there is something in there, since you have access to do this with
the front tub removed. Go ahead, remove the pulley and bolt, and if
the basket comes out, then check everything out.

If it doesn't, don't try pounding it out; stop there and go to plan B, which is a new basket
and tub assembly.

How do I install a whirlpool bathtub?


here is a link to the some installation and operating instructions.
basically you need to put a 2" x 2" runner under the lip of the tub along the three sides of the tub that touch the walls to support the lip of the tub. that pretty much covers it.
