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...

K-1357 kohler whirlpool tub there is leaking only when the tub is filled and drained. when taking showers there are no leaks 3yrs old


Overflow? Seal around drain may be good enough for shower, but leaks with a little more pressure from the filled tub. Filled tub may flex the tub and drain components. What about the overflow. I bet some water is going over, but it isn't used for showers. Double check. Paper towels tied in stratigic locations always help me find a leak. Leak makes the towel soak up water nearby. It's most wet at the point of leak.

Kohler soap dispenser leaks onto counter


Your dispenser nut is either not tightened down underneath or your plastic base/o-ring needs to be replaced. Turn off water at value. Using sink nut removal & installation tool that is available at any Lowe's or Home Depot. Remove it and look at what is wrong. Conntact Kohler for free parts to repair it. Reinstall dispenser .

Kohler whirlpool type tub will not pump water out of its jets or take water into the intake. Pump appears to operate fine. Water does not want to move. Suggestions?


When a bath pump turns on but does not move any water it is usually because there is an Air Lock and needs to be released.Try this.
  • Fill the tub with water
  • Turn the pump on
  • Unthread the discharge pump union until water starts to squirt out
  • when this happens you should hear a big 'swoosh'


if the bath pump starts to discharge water through the jets then you have solved the problem.

No power to the jets on our KOHLER bathtub


Check the main breaker, check the GFCI that the pump is plugged into. Make sure you have power to the outlet that the pump is plugged into.
if you have power to that point we need to find out how you are turning the pump on.
Can you take the pump out and plug it into another outlet to make sure the pump is good?

I have a kohler jacuzzi tub and many times over the past 5yrs the pump continously trips and the jacuzzi will not start. Any suggestions i have tried to reset the button unplug and plug it, an filled it...


Sound like your pump may have a leak into the electric motor part of it through the shaft seal.
Or it could just have junk stopping up the lines or the pumps impeller. Hair often finds it's way into these things and screws them up!
If it's leaking there will be some water showing below the pump unit.....

Kohler Whirlpool K-1266 (Does not star


Here are some possible causes and solutions. I know some seem simple but am trying to cover all base
  1. Jets Closed, rotate Jet trm ring counterclockwise to open.
  2. Jet not installed correctly, re-install jet, check for 'O' ring damage.
  3. Jets are blocked, Check for blockage and remove.
  4. Pump is not priming, Pumps with wooden support blocks only, Pump shimmed to high, lower pump support bracket. (wooden support blocks only)
  5. Pump is air locked. Loosen fitting on pump outlet to allow any air to escape, re-tighten.
  6. Air Actuator tubing is disconnected, loose, kinked, plugged or damaged. Connect, straighten, clean or replace air actuator tubing.
  7. Air Actuator does not work, replace the air actuator
visual check to see if pump is turning when motor is is on. If not replace the the pump you may need to disconnect the the inlet/outlet to see. I hope this helps at least provide some direction. Good Luck, Jeff

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor problem. Turn motor on and trips GFI. It looks like the GFI is wired right and suggestions


Unplug tub from GFI, does GFI hold, plug something else into GFI to see if it holds under load. If all is ok then make sure you have a good ground from the motor to the GFI and the polarity is good. If 120 vac black wire to gold post, white wire to silver post and ground to green. Check proper connections, including polarity and ground at tub junction box and at pump motor it self.
