The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe

SOURCE: valve adjustment
You need to replace the flapper and you will need to purchase one specifically for the Kohler toilet. I have the same toilet and tried using a generic flapper and from experiance, it didn't work until I bought the correct one and I'm a plumber! Have a great night.

First, fyi, adjusting the knob? in the tank, or the fill level will not increase the amount of water in the bowl. The bowl fills to a certain point, and then as more water is added it starts to go over the built in trap, and down the drain. When you flush the toilet, all the water in the tank dumps into the bowl, and the existing water is pushed over the trap and down the drain. All of this being said it sounds like you may either have an internal crack, between the bowl and trap; you may have a crack that is draining under your toilet, (water spots?), or you have a more serious plumbing issue, improper venting, which is causing a vacuum, and pulling the water out. Hope this helps.

If there is no water on the floor then the water is leaking down the main tank drain. Take off the tank lid, turn off the water supply to the toilet. Fllush as much water out as you can. Look at the main drain, sometimes if the flapper valve is connected with a chain, the chain can get caught between the flapper valve and the drain hole, the flapper valve is pliable so it tries to seal around the obstruction but can't always do it. Make sure there is obstruction, that the flapper valve is not out of shape or old and non-pliable and that it lines up with the drain hole and doesn't get "hung up" on anything.
