Here is the manual for the tub. The switch is an air switch with tube. You have to make sure the tube has no holes in it or replace it if you can. look on the manual it will help you out.

K-1357 kohler whirlpool tub there is leaking only when the tub is filled and drained. when taking showers there are no leaks 3yrs old


Overflow? Seal around drain may be good enough for shower, but leaks with a little more pressure from the filled tub. Filled tub may flex the tub and drain components. What about the overflow. I bet some water is going over, but it isn't used for showers. Double check. Paper towels tied in stratigic locations always help me find a leak. Leak makes the towel soak up water nearby. It's most wet at the point of leak.

Kohler whirlpool type tub will not pump water out of its jets or take water into the intake. Pump appears to operate fine. Water does not want to move. Suggestions?


When a bath pump turns on but does not move any water it is usually because there is an Air Lock and needs to be released.Try this.
  • Fill the tub with water
  • Turn the pump on
  • Unthread the discharge pump union until water starts to squirt out
  • when this happens you should hear a big 'swoosh'


if the bath pump starts to discharge water through the jets then you have solved the problem.

Jet streams whirpool not working after heavy lightining storm. lights in the tub do work, but do not turn off Unit about 6 years old model TO3C 1348


you have been hit by power surge. most likely the problem is in the control box that controls the pump. Need to call local plumber or service company to take a look at the system.
Verify that all circuit breakers are on and stay on after being reset before calling service tech.

This is sounding like a relay not working on the circuit board inside the control box. You will want to have a Kohler service center send someone out to have it checked. You most likely need a new control box.

Does Kohler recolor existing fixtures? Do you have pedestal sinks and tubs for art deco period such that one could get a light teal or purple tub or sink?


The companies don't recolor fixtures but there are bath refinshing outfits that do. There are also do it yourself kits to be had. I did a harvest gold shower once and it still looks good after 7 years.

When you depress the air presure butoon on the kohler whirpool tub a clicking sound is heard but the motor does not run. There nis powewr to the receptacle that the pump/motor is connected to.


What you need is a new air switch for the back of the motor. The air tubing connects to it on the motor. that is probably what is clicking when you push the air button on the top of the tub. Once you change that air switch you will be back in HOT WATER !!
Should be a TBS-310 or TBS-301 latching air switch is the one you need. Either of those models will work in a Kohler pump.

My Kohler whirlpool started on its own with no water in it. We turned it off with the switch and it hasn't happened again. Is there a danger of it starting a fire if we are away from home and it does it...


Most Kohler tubs have a water sensor or water level sensor. Is this an air bath tub (holes in the floor)? or a jetted tub? If it is an air bath, the tub will purge after using it 15 to 30 minutes ater it is drained. If it is programable it will come on every 24 hours if it has been programmed. If it is a jetted tub, there may have been water on the sensor and caused it to start up. If it is a single on/off button the switch could have gotten water and caused it to start up, or there is a problem with the control box. It usually will not start a fire if it comes on, most of the newer pumps have run dry seals. If you leave the house for vacation or weekends, I would advise unplugging the tub or turning off the breaker.

We have a light bone shower enclosure that was


I have worked on vikrel tubs for the past 5 years and have yet seen a bone or any other color other than a light gray. Due to the tub making process, the tubs or showers are the color of the plastic use to make them. If you have a bone tub it has probably been refinished (factory? or by some company offering a bone vikrel tub. I would contact Kohler who makes the sterling line of tubs and ask their tech support about colorizing a vikrel tub. Look for a local and reliable tub repair company, they should be able to match the bone color. Ingredients in soaps and shampoo's tend to affect the refinish material.
Hope this helps you out.
