Hi. I have a Kohler toilet and it is filling up very slowly. It basically just drips out of the top assembly on the fill valve. However, if I turn off the valve to the toilet and then turn it back on again it will fill up quickly until I flush the toilet then it starts to fill up slowly again.

Change out the ball **** and float assembly and flapper valve to one of the newer types...
Also you can set the level of water in the tank by an adjustment screw located at the top of the ball ****.
The Flapper valve on the bottom of the tank also needs replacement, that is causing the tank not to drain properly.

Check tank for fill line running from fill valve to overflow tube. It will be a 1/4 " line that allows the tank and bowl to fill. It should be connected from fill valve and connected at the top of overflow by a clip or hanger.
Check out the water level in tank to make sure it is filling to line on overflow or within 5/8" to top of overflow pipe.
There is a volume control screw on the valves usually a plastic thumbscrew on side of valve turn clockwise until they quiet up the plumber should have adjusted that these are very tempermental toilets but when adjusted properly are excellent toilets I have 2 in my own home
You need to replace the flapper and you will need to purchase one specifically for the Kohler toilet. I have the same toilet and tried using a generic flapper and from experiance, it didn't work until I bought the correct one and I'm a plumber! Have a great night.
It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.
If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )
