Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, take apart the tub and clean everything out. No easy task, I know, but who want old dog hair floating around? That will be your best bet.

SOURCE: Whirlpool tub not cutting off.
First I would remove the switch hose from the pump. Pinch the end of the hose over and hold it in place with a piece of tape. Depress the button and hold. If the button has little to no resistance then there is a hole in the air line which is causing enough air to leak that there is not enough force to activate the switch. If that is not the problem then just consider leaving the switch in the hole on the tub surface but adding a regular wall swich to the wall near the tub. This move the switch action from the tub to the wall. This a really cheap solution compared to getting a new switch mechanism which is what is broken for about $200.

If the GFI is good, pull the hose off of the pump and have someone push the button at the same time you have your finger over the end of the hose. If there is pressure at the end of the hose, the button is good. Put the hose back on the pump, and have someone push the button, you should hear a clicking each time it is pushed. If this is the case the internal switch in the little black box on the top of the pump is bad, they are avaliable from Guillens, it is called an air switch. Two screws secure the box cover and a nut on the outside of the box secures the switch, be sure to unplug the pump before working on the switch.

The shaft on the motor should spin freely as should the impeller when attached to the pump. If there is drag on either, replace the pump and motor assembly. I have worked on jetted tubs for the past 5 years, I have seen seized pumps more than once.

Testimonial: "Direct feedback helpful to solve my problem."
If it is a air button that pushes in and comes back up, there is a good chance that the switch (which is mounted on the pump/motor) is bad. If the switch is a touch button on a key pad, the problem is in the control box for the pump/motor.
