I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your question is: Just replace the fill valve for kohler one piece andthe fill valve sprays a stream of water out of the top and onto the undersideof the lid is that supposed to happen?
For some reason I can't seem to get the picture up. Nevertheless, the answer is no, it should not be leaking. Did you take a picture of the original before removal? Do you still have the original? Look carefully at the diference between the two. Make sure it's an exact duplicate and isn't missing parts. These one piece toilet parts are expensive but the suplier sometimes makes mistakes. You can only solve this problem if they match.
Feel free contact me again!

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 )

Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

Don't flush more water! Trash the toilet and replace it with a toilet that uses less water and flushes efficiently; practically every manufacturer makes a dual flush or eco model. Spend your money on a good toilet rather than paying for and wasting water every day.
