The impeller in the pump has probably been broken......a costly fix as you can only get a new pump to fix thins.
But just for kicks and giggles......check to see if the intake isn't clogged. Remove the filter/strainer and see if anything is blocking it. 
Probably not but it is a free and quick check

How to fill an ariel bathtub


The proper way to fill the Ariel Bathtub is to turn on the faucet that is near the tub with warm to hot water to your liking. Once it is above the highest jet in the wall of the tub, if your Ariel tub is a Whirlpool model you may operate the jets.

When I push the button on my american standard jacuzzi tub I hear the hum of the motor but jets don't come on


In my case I took the motor out and used a screw driver to turn the impeller in the front of the pump and the fins inthe back. Put it back together and it worked. I then used 2 tablesoons of dishwashing detergent and 1/2 cup bleach and ran it for 20 minutes to clean and degrease the impellers

This is sounding like a relay not working on the circuit board inside the control box. You will want to have a Kohler service center send someone out to have it checked. You most likely need a new control box.

Jets don't work in the jetted tub.


First the obvious, most are electrically connected to a ground fault device, ether an outlet or a breaker. BEFORE ADDING WATER, check these out to make sure they are not tripped. Most all tubs have a minimum water level which must be reached before the jets will operate. This is usually a piece of trim located above the depth of the jets. Make sure the tub is filled to cover this part. If you cant identify the water level device fill the tub so that all the jets are covered by an inch or 2. Some tubs have push button switches or touch pads to control the motor, some have touch sensitive trim. There may be some sort of medallion from the maker on the tub, simply touching it will start the tub. Once you get it going most tubs have a built in timer that turns off the pump in 15 - 20 minutes. For more tub time just hit the switch again but keep in mind that extended exposure in a hot tub can mess with your blood pressure and cause you to loose balance or pass out, hence the 20 minute timer.

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.

No whirlpool jets


It sounds like the motor needs to be lubricated or there is debris keeping the impeller from turning without the help of a littl force. I would have a professional that deals with whirlpool tubs come and lube the motor.

How can I unclog plumbing in whirlpool tub used to clean dogs?


Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, take apart the tub and clean everything out. No easy task, I know, but who want old dog hair floating around? That will be your best bet.

More likely: the solenoid which directs the water to either the drain or the spray arm is clogged/jammed. Located underneath near the drain line.
