Need to know how to access the motor on my whirlpool tub

I have a whirlpool tub that was installed in 1991 when my home was built. Unfortunately, I do not know the make/model. I can no longer get the jets to turn on. I have a panel on the front with 2 very small screws. I am just wanting to know if I undo those two screws should I be able to pull that front panel off. I know that the motor sits behind there because I saw it as it was being installed. I just don't want to damage anything.

Yes you should have an access panel to the pump somewhere. It sounds like you have already found it. You may want to get a qualified electrician involved. There are at least three sources of possible failure. The first and least expensive is that the motor tripped the ground fault interrupter and just needs to be reset. The second is that the switch has gone bad. The third and most expensive is that the pump is broken and needs to be replaced.

Replacing defective pump switch


The air switch on a bathtub is located in the bath pump. Your description sounds like you are asking about the air button which is located on the top lip of the bath tub.

Jetted tub is on 2nd floor over kitchen. when jets are on water comes thru kitchen light fixture! Help!


First find access to tub,by code there needs to be access to pump motor,either built into wall or various tubs front skirt is removeable.Fill tub and run to visibly see leak,sounds like bearing assembly gaskets are leaking on pump,could possibly be a jet connection,but if it only does while running its the pump or motor assembly.Hope that helps,in the future make sure water is always above suction intakes or can lead to premature burnout of pump

Where can I buy just the brass trim on the jet for my whirlpool tub (aker)?


The trim for any brand whirlpool (w/p) tub must be ordered from that specific tub manufacturer. They will need to know exactly what your particular model is.

The model of your w/p tub, and serial number, is most often, but not always, located on the motor end of your unit but not on the motor itself. Access to this end of the tub, if installed to code, should get you the information you need, otherwise you are out of options'

Bathtub jets don't work


The first step is to determine if the pump is working or not. Is there an external switch on the wall next to the tub? Can you hear the pump humming underneath? CHeck your fuse box to see if a breaker has been tripped.

I know those sound easy, but its always best to check the simple things first.

If you don't hear the pump running and its not the breaker, it has now become a bit more difficult project but still something any competent home owner can fix.

YOu have to access the electrical plug on the tub. It is 110v outlet that is underneath the tub on the same end as the switch or opposite the drain.

You needs to access the tub through the wall from the other side and check out that electrical connection. Could just be the the GFI switch thrown. If not then it cold be a bad pump or broken impeller.

For help if that's the case just post again as it is a length process.

Too much noise from the motor, can we replace for a quiet one?


Unfortunately I have yet to see a "quite" motor for a jetted tub. The only soultion I have found for the noise is to use rigid or fiberglass insulation on the inside of the tub platform. Care needs to be taken so as to not block the back of the pumps or blower, this will restrict airflow and cause damage to pumps/blowers.

Jets not working


i have seen this in the past, a ground fault electrical outlet on the inside of a roman tub,if you have a 2 story house look for access panel on or by tub. otherwise you have to remove tile or other to access motor, you probably need a step too anyways

Jetted bath tub has stopped working - motor hums, will not run


The shaft on the motor should spin freely as should the impeller when attached to the pump. If there is drag on either, replace the pump and motor assembly. I have worked on jetted tubs for the past 5 years, I have seen seized pumps more than once.
