Question about Kohler Archer Bath Drain, Vibrant Brushed Nickel

1 Answer

Slow tub drain

I believe there is a plug of some sort that must be removed in the drain prior to use. The drain is very slow since installation. How do I remove it? It is a drain you step on to open and close. If there is not a plug how do I take it apart and clean it out?

I am not completly sure about the kohler,but i think that you have a toe tap drajn.You should be able to un-screw it counter clockwise.IF you can get it un-screwed look at the bottom of the toe tap.There will be a screw or a plastic nut.I beleave that you loosen it to raise the drain I hope my information is correct,I will certanly do some research on your drain.

DISHWASHER FILLING UP WIYH WATER WHEN NOT IN USE


Check to see if dishwasher drain is attached to garbage disposer. Running the disposer when the dishwasher drains and it will help keep it clean but if the disposer drain line plugs then the water can drain back into the dishwasher. If it does not connect there then you have a slow kitchen drain and this can be fixed by having a plumber snake it. Often it is plugged with grease that can be cleared with boiling hot water poured down the drain. If this is not the problem then check to see if the dishwasher drain is raised as high as it can go under the sink cabinet. Fasten it up with a strap if needed. This will create a trap to keep the water from flowing back into the dishwasher. Do this regardless of your problem. Lastly If the dishwasher does not drain and it is connected to the disposer then the problem is that the knock out plug was not removed when the disposer was installed. Remove the hose at the disposer and knock it out with a screwdriver. This plug is there so you can install disposer without tying a dishwasher in. Otherwise it would leak there. A slow drain may back up and run into the dishwasher before you see any water appear in the sink. If you raise the dishwasher line to the underside of the counter top you should see water in the sink before it begins to drain into the dishwasher. A slow drain may only show up when you are doing a lot of dishes.

Be cautious when removing them, they like to brake. Spray some sort of penetrating fluid in each hole and let it sit for about 30 min to an hour before attempting to crack them loose. I believe it also helps if the engine is a bit warm also. Those are aluminum heads so when installing the new ones don't over tighten them or risk stripping the threads out. Good luck if you have any questions please ask.

We just replaced our garbage disposal and now the dishwasher won't drain. I order a drain pump and it still won't drain.


Make sure that the air clear on top of the sink is clean and clear all the way through. Sometimes in replacement silt and other garbage clog this up and keep it allowing water to drain properly.

Slow drain. would like to remove plug o clean


Oh these are a pain to remove.
under the sink, feel for a knurled nut on the back of the tailpiece that comes down form the sink it will have a lever activated rod coming out of it. Remove this knurled nut, it may be difficult, squeeze the little spring that captures the rod to close the drain. Now there should be a rod with a ball and gasket still inside where you removed the knurled nut, pull these out and the plug should be able to be removed. These units are known for the white plastic gaskets breaking, and the rod where the white ball is for rusting through BTW. I had to buy a new unit just for those parts.

How do you drain the radiator on a 2001 blazer


There is drain plug on the drivers side of the radiator at the bottom, but the safest way is to just remove the lower radiator hose on the passenger side to drain the radiator. The drain plug is plastic and it may crack due to time and heat and you'll have to buy a replacement radiator drain plug, for this reason most newer radiator don't come with a drain plug and if you want one you'll have to install the drain plug kit. If your radiator doesn't have a drain plug then you have the newer radiators install already as the older radiators we still being installed until they were all gone and the new ones were installed.
Thank you for using Fixya.
