KOLHER Soap dispenser won't dispence soap. - Kohler K-5988-2-7 Entree Self-Rimming Kitchen Sink, Black Black

    I have a soap dispenser installed in my kitchen sink. It has stopped dispensing soap. I have cleaned it, looking for clogged soap, and see nothing obvious. If I depress the pump repeatedly (100 times) it will emit a little foam, but no soap. Before you ask,; yes there is soap in the under-sink container. Does it need priming? If so, how does one do that?

    Have you noticed if "straw like tube" is in pump? if not has probably fallen into soap bottle.Retrieve by unscrewing from under and fish out fallen piece,no need to prime or can check prime by inserting into glass of warm water and pumpng until results 4-9 pumps should do. no results pump is wore out or straw has hole or crack in it. buy new replace.

Pull the dispenser out. Put it in semi hot water foe a few minutes to clean it. Then put the pickup tube in a glass of water and pump it untill water comes out. They get clogged with soap after so long.
Good Luck

I had the same problem and found out that the neck of the soap bottle had broken off and the bottle was in the bottom of the cabinet. Does anyone know where I can get a new bottle? I can't find a part number on the Kohler site. Thanks

Hi,
Yes you can...
Use a good sharp hole saw like you would use for wood or metal...
