It sounds like there is dirt or other debris in the unit. Here is the installation guide. Take it apart and look for debris which would block the mechanism:

Push Pull Shower Valve also off in middle position


If you turn it to left or right (hot or cold) and get water out of the shower head,we'll elimate cloged shower head.If it just doesnt work in the middle ,probily a washer is stuck in your diverter,or to better understand>a part inside your shower knob assembly is clogging the water that goes up to your shower head. If you get water out of the shower head in the just cold possition or just hot position,then you will have to dissasemble the unit to repair. If you get no water in the cold or hot position could just be a clogged shower head.If you dont know how to disasemble a Shower diverter ,I wouldn't recommend taking it apart. Hope this helped!

Shower is dripping. how do you make sure you find the exact diverter replacement? Does it matter?


If you're talking about the diverter just like the one in that picture, then no. You do not need to get a Kohler diverter, as Kohler utilizes the 1/2 NPT(national pipe threading) threads that most showers are compatible to. You can pick one up from your local hardware stores. Make sure you teflon tape all the male threads before you install them.

Can this diverter run both the shower head and a hand held shower.


This unit will allow the function of the shower head or the hand held shower individually. You can make both operate at the same time but the performance will be dismall at best.

Leaking shower head


Not unless you had a backward plumber , If the diverter at the faucet is open for tub, then no water will go up the shower, The shower may hold enough water up there to make it look like a drip, Even if the valve was leaking all the time, it would not go up, it would come out the faucet. It only works with pressure. Unless the valve was plumbed wrong,,, Hope this helps.

Replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout


The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

Shower arm is loose


The best way is to cut a hole in the wall and fix it right. That will entail replacing the surface material, probably sheetrock. You could try some silicone sealant around the shower arm behind the eschusion. It will still move, but not much.

Kohler KT12007 Showerhead


The device which directs the water up or down is called the diverter. Your diverter is not fully up or fully down. Rather forcefully push and pull the diverter a few times and your problem may be solved. good luck.

Kohler K-9511-BN MasterShower Shower Arm & Diverter Doesn't Work


As a helpful hint , on these models, When installed some plumbers or home owners use plumbers putty to seal the threads and in some cases tape.
Most of the time the putty or tape gets pushed through the system if too much was used.
Check by removing the shower head and testing the pressure and blowing anything else through, then checking the head itself for foreign objects.
Kohler has a cleaning and care page on thier web site if it needs cleaned.
