Question about Kohler Home
I have a 4 year old toilet which has a Kohler seat but a concealed cistern - I don't know if this is Kohler or not. It hisses due to the valve being open and water in concstantly running into the cistern. I've taken what I can off of the cistern to get a look inside and it seems to me that the part that turns the water off won't rise on its own - which if I lift it the water stops running. If I let go, it starts to run again. It has a lever which must bend to turn the water off but it does not rise to turn the water off itself. What do I need to do to fix this? To get to the whole cistern I have to remove my countertop, toilet base and an enclosure.

SOURCE: Toilet Refills Every 15-Minutes
I have minute amount of leakage into the bowl causing mold to grow. I believe that it may be the rubber seal for the flapper body to the porcelain.

SOURCE: toilet cistern doesn't fill up
it sounds like one or more of your shut off valves has a glog from hard water calcium. were from indiana its a big problem here.To check this u will have to shut off main water supply and remove top of shut off valve and check for white crusty blockage, even if u see a few particals its present. It can severely restrict flow.

Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

SOURCE: Toilet won't stop running
I have a Kohler toilet and Ingenium fill valve
85297-AA. My toilet kept running, the fill valve black cylinder
wouldn't pop up and when I added blue food coloring to the tank, the
blue color seeped through to the toilet bowl. First I replaced the
flapper and that allowed the fill valve piece on the cylinder to pop up
correctly and blue dye no longer seeped through to the bowl. I still heard a hissing sound when the toilet tank had
filled and no water was going into the overflow tube. I called the tech
support number on the Kohler website 1-800-4KOHLER (1-800-456-4537) .
Here's what solved the problem: Turn off the water to the toilet.Take
off the white cap of the fill valve by pushing it down and turning it
counterclockwise as you would open up a childproof pill container. Then
unhook the metal hook. Hold a cup upside down (I used a strong plastic
cup) over the part of the fill valve that is left in the tank and turn
on the water. (You need the cup because otherwise the water will squirt
up to the ceiling.) The water will flush out the fill valve. Replace
the cap and the hook and flush.

Hi I have exactly the same problem, in fact it could have been me writing this - 3 toliets fine, main bathroom hisses. The Geberit flushing ciphen on the left (the smaller one) has been replaced and there is still a problem. If you look carefully,the water level needs to come up over the lip of an opening on the Geberit part and this causes the valve mechanism to shut off and stop the hissing. It is fine for about 40 minutes and then the hissing starts again if you don't flush it. The reason is that the water level has gone down but there is no obvious signs of where the water is going. It could be that the central flush mechanism is leaking slightly. I am going to replace this part next. If I were you I'd see if you are getting any water leakage into the pan when toilet not in use to see if the water level in the cistern is going down James T
