Hi, first check the air switch hose that connects to the "button"
Open the access for the pump there should be 1/4" poly tubing (probably clear) that connects to the pump motor. It just slides over a barbed nipple usually located somewhere on the back of the pump housing opposite the pipe connections. Make sure it is in place properly. If it is in place then look else where. The tubing also connects to the back of the air switch "button". This button connection rarely fails, especially if the tub was working and now does not. But if the tub is newly installed and may have disconnected during installation. this connection is probably going to be difficult if not impossible to verify since it is usually concealed after installation.
Some pump motors have resets some do not. If it does it probably is on the very back of pump oppositethe pipe connections.
Also check to make sure that any electrical outlets in the bathroom, or any where in a nearby radius of the tub, to see if they have "GFI" reset buttons and make sure that they havn't tripped by pushing in the button between the plug-ins named "reset". Usually the circuit for the pump will be tied into one of these switches to add ground fault protection to the circuit.
If your pump is not working after checking these things it may be dead. Does your pump "hum" after pushing the button? Do you smell any type oder around the pump that would suggest a "burnt motor"?
If the pump is dead you will have to replace it.

When I fill my tub and turn the timer on it only shows an "L". I know this means that the water level is too low, but even when the water is well above the jets, it still say "L". I...

this happens sometimes when the leads under the tub get a bit corroded. Get under the tub and find the studs and screws that are at the end of the low water sensor wires and clean them up with some emery cloth then reinstall them.
this should get you back up and running again.

I need a timer for a Kohler whirlpool bath K-792-S. Do you know where I can locate one? It is 30-some years old.

I tried searching for the timer for your Kohler Whirlpool bath K-792-S, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I found a site, but I'm not sure if this is the timer that you're looking for. Please check the link below:

If the timer on the picture is the one that you are looking for, check the link below and send an e-mail to see if they have an available timer.

You have a bad capacitor its located on the top of the electric pump motor. Be sure to turn off the power before attempting to replace it.

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor wont turn on

We had the same thing happen to our Aker brand whirlpool tub.  The fix was a replacement timer/control piece which is connected by two wires to the pump behind the tub (access wall) and plugged into the outlet; however, this cost $150 for the part and $85 for the service call (all he did was take the part out and ship me the replacement part which was easy to do).  Problem I have now is that the motor won't shut off unless I unplug it.  I am waiting for a call back from the repairman who sent me the part.

Whirlpool side by side refridgerator, 14 years old, nothing works. By passed controls-compressor fine, condensor fan works-no power to defrost timer, lights don't work. Power cord has continuity.

go to the molex plug at the rear of the unit on the right side where all the wires connect check the white wire common wire
loose common wire connection will not give you power to the nutral side for the freezer light defrost timer defrost heater fresh food control fresh food light theres a way to get it back if the plug is not the issue let me know 276-523-4434
