If that is what it needs and the pump impellor is actually working(turning) then filling the tube leading into the pump, until it take no more water, will prime the pump.

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.

Maxx jetted tub quit pumping water, pump motor just races.


When the bath pump runs and you get no water going through the jets in your bath Jet trim then the impeller has probably spun off the shaft of the motor.You will not know if this is the case until you take the bath pump out and remove the front cover of the bath pump and check the impeller.If this is the case it usually has to be replaced.

I need the manual of how to install the bath for the Comet 10 Jet Whirlpool 1500 x 1000 Bath. The Installer is having problem in getting the pump in the right position to work.


i don't have a solution for the manual however, the pump needs to be installed such that the bottom of the suction line going into the pump is 1/2" higher than the bottom of the suction elbow (coming out of the tub) thereby providing the pump with a flooded suction. This will provide the pump enough water to start pumping to the jets.

Lasko pump motor in jetted tub comes on when switch is turned on but doesn't pump any water from jets. Unit has been used very little and is about 8 years old. Is there any such thing as priming these...


you can check to make sure there is water to the front of the pump. What they use on their tubs is called flooded suction pump i.e. there has to be enough water to the front of the pump end to **** it through and push it up and out of the wet end.
fill your tub up and loosen the discharge union on the top of the pump until water starts to come out, quickly tighten the union back down and then see if you can get the pump to start pushing water.

Jetted bath tub has stopped working. Motor hums


look on the back of the motor there should be a shaft that you can try to turn to spin free because something inside the pump is blocking it. rate me if this is helpful.
