Kohler Whirlpool tub motor wont turn on

During the recent ice storm we had various electrical issues such as all our controls on our furnace were blown, phones had to be replaced, toaster oven died, fish tank controls all died. We believe we had power surges. I just recently found that my whirlpool tub (less than 1 yr old) won't start. Do you have any quick check homeowner ideas before having the whole thing dismantaled and replaced. I was reading about some reset switch in the instruction manual, but don't see any button on the pump so I'm thinking that may be beyond me. I'm really hoping I don't have to replace the whole pump given the cost in the first place.

    I don't know if it helps but, we had power surges and it took out alot of things in my home. My whirlpool motor in my tub quit working and I took a panel off, looked for a reset switch, could not find one. So I checked the power going to the motor with a lamp, and it didn't work. I don't know why, but I tried another switch in my bathroom and the lamp didn't work so I reset the GFCI on that plug and the lamp came on. I ran back to the tub, with my lamp, plugged it into the plug and it worked. I have 2 other plugs in my bathroom that have been working fine, I had no idea that the tub and the unused plug by the bath door were on the same circuit.

    So reset all your GFCI's in the bath, make sure they are all working and plug that motor up.

    I sure hope that was the only problem so you can get your money back.

We had the same thing happen to our Aker brand whirlpool tub.  The fix was a replacement timer/control piece which is connected by two wires to the pump behind the tub (access wall) and plugged into the outlet; however, this cost $150 for the part and $85 for the service call (all he did was take the part out and ship me the replacement part which was easy to do).  Problem I have now is that the motor won't shut off unless I unplug it.  I am waiting for a call back from the repairman who sent me the part.

Whirlpool does not turn on. Kohler Model K-1474-V


The chances that is problem you are experiencing is related to the suction cover is extremely remote. The suction assembly doesn't have anything to do with the tub motor operating.
The issue is most likely with the motor not working or the air switch in the motor malfunctioning.
What does the control look like that you use to turn the pump on/off?
Is it an air button or an electronic switch?

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.

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor problem. Turn motor on and trips GFI. It looks like the GFI is wired right and suggestions


Unplug tub from GFI, does GFI hold, plug something else into GFI to see if it holds under load. If all is ok then make sure you have a good ground from the motor to the GFI and the polarity is good. If 120 vac black wire to gold post, white wire to silver post and ground to green. Check proper connections, including polarity and ground at tub junction box and at pump motor it self.

K-1357 kohler whirlpool tub there is leaking only when the tub is filled and drained. when taking showers there are no leaks. this unit has been recently installed within the last week


You say that it doesn't leak during showers. The next step is to plug the drain 100% so no water will drain thru the drain assembly. Fill the unit up to just below the overflow drain and leave overnight to see if it could be leaking from the outside of the drain plug assembly or leaking from the jets/drain from the whirlpool feature. If was just recently installed was it professionally installed. Should be covered by warranty.Try this then if its not determined what the cause we will go to the next level of investigating what it could be.in it peak all around to see where the water is comming from. Use a flashlite so your not kneeling in mosture with a electrical light in your hand!!! Good Luck!
