Whirlpool does not turn on. Kohler Model K-1474-V


The chances that is problem you are experiencing is related to the suction cover is extremely remote. The suction assembly doesn't have anything to do with the tub motor operating.
The issue is most likely with the motor not working or the air switch in the motor malfunctioning.
What does the control look like that you use to turn the pump on/off?
Is it an air button or an electronic switch?

The air switch on my Kohler whirlpool tub, when depressed will not start the motor. However, if I take the plastic hose off the switch and blow into it, the motor starts fine. I've replaced the ai


There are Air Switches (at the motor or control box) and Air buttons (on the spa/bath side). The vinyl tube between them is the only other component to the 'switching' on/off a hole in the tube may cause this problem.
The air switch has a diaphragm which is activated by the air in the tube when the button is pressed. If the air pressure is not sufficient the switch will not operate.
As you've replaced your Air button, you might want to change the tubing and either adjust the Air Switch or replace it. The switch only needs 1-5psi to activate so the pressure from you blowing into the tube can damage the diaphragm in the switch.

I have a kohler jet tub that has never been hooked up properly. There is a clear plastic hose from the on off switch inside top of tub. Where soes it get hooked to the motor to make it work?


yes. that clear hose goes onto the air switch on the back of the motor. once that is hooked up if you push the air button then the pump should turn on/off for you.

When you depress the air presure butoon on the kohler whirpool tub a clicking sound is heard but the motor does not run. There nis powewr to the receptacle that the pump/motor is connected to.


What you need is a new air switch for the back of the motor. The air tubing connects to it on the motor. that is probably what is clicking when you push the air button on the top of the tub. Once you change that air switch you will be back in HOT WATER !!
Should be a TBS-310 or TBS-301 latching air switch is the one you need. Either of those models will work in a Kohler pump.

I have a Kohler whirlpool. When I turn on the pump it leaks under the crawlspace.


Hi,
Most likely the seal at the pump shaft is bad and the water leaks out as the motor is running...this can be fixed by an experienced plumber, but is rather difficult and parts are hard to find.
Replacing the whole pump and motor may be the best option...

My Kohler whirlpool started on its own with no water in it. We turned it off with the switch and it hasn't happened again. Is there a danger of it starting a fire if we are away from home and it does it...


Most Kohler tubs have a water sensor or water level sensor. Is this an air bath tub (holes in the floor)? or a jetted tub? If it is an air bath, the tub will purge after using it 15 to 30 minutes ater it is drained. If it is programable it will come on every 24 hours if it has been programmed. If it is a jetted tub, there may have been water on the sensor and caused it to start up. If it is a single on/off button the switch could have gotten water and caused it to start up, or there is a problem with the control box. It usually will not start a fire if it comes on, most of the newer pumps have run dry seals. If you leave the house for vacation or weekends, I would advise unplugging the tub or turning off the breaker.
