Question about Whirlpool Home

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool Cielo Tub that is leaking from a value that seems to draw air when the jets are turned on. The value seems to come off the air filter and is behind the tub in the crawl space.

If the jets are on there is no water in the PVC going to the valve. If they are off the PVC and valve have the same water level as the tub. If the water is sloshed around it comes out of the value and into the crawl space. Does anyone know how to post a pic to this forum. I have the valve / intake that is the issue but the plumbing supply place had no clue.

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.

I believe the below web site can help you with your problem. The jets are more then likely just turned off.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Lasco whirlpool tub leaks. Water runs out on

Sorry, the tub will have to pulled out to find out what is leaking so it can be fixed. There is just no other way UNLESS you can open up the wall on the blind side of the tube. (but its probably and exterior wall...if the house is vinyl sided, it can be done. If brick, you'll have to pull the tub). If you just wanted to convert to a tub only, maybe Bathfitters has an insert solution...

The jets turn yellow from exposure to the sun, not much you can do except replace the jets (costly). What is leaking? if you broke the seal on a jet it will leak and have to be resealed.

Can you fix a broken pvc pipe


more specific please. so your saying that the actual faucet sticking outta the wall is PVC and not a Brass for plated brass pipe? Also what type of valve do you have. Is it a single knob valve that you rotate to turn on as well as adjust your water temperature, or is there 2 knobs one for hot and one for cold?

A picture would help me answer your question a lot easier

How do i install a diverter valve


Cut and glue the valve into the PVC pipe. Use PVC cement and solvent to glue the pipe into the valve.
Install this valve in the section of pipe you want to divert the water from one section of jets to another section.

Water is squirting out of pvc pipe under the tub. pvc pipe has some sort of "breather"


This is the safety check valve. If water is coming out of it then either the water is too high in the tub when it is being used or there is a blockage somewhere in the system making the water go to that valve.

Leaking jacuzzi jet


The workings of a bath jet...From the inside of the Bath there is a wall fitting that threads from the inside of the tub into the jet body located on the outside wall of the tub.
If the jet is leaking at this point behind the tub then you should take the wall fitting out of the tub and put a small bead of 100% RTV silicone around the flange of the wall fitting and reinstall it.
If however, the leak is from the PVC piping going into the jet then you will need to replace the jet.

Water level does not recognize level....does not stop filling


I had the same problem, its the water-fill hose sensor located at the back of the tub. Sometimes it pops off if the tub goes out of balance, (poor design, no clamp on it) so if you can get in there see if the hose is properly fitted over the connector to the tub, happened twice to me, an easy fix, go by a clamp to keep it on.

Jets don't work in the jetted tub.


First the obvious, most are electrically connected to a ground fault device, ether an outlet or a breaker. BEFORE ADDING WATER, check these out to make sure they are not tripped. Most all tubs have a minimum water level which must be reached before the jets will operate. This is usually a piece of trim located above the depth of the jets. Make sure the tub is filled to cover this part. If you cant identify the water level device fill the tub so that all the jets are covered by an inch or 2. Some tubs have push button switches or touch pads to control the motor, some have touch sensitive trim. There may be some sort of medallion from the maker on the tub, simply touching it will start the tub. Once you get it going most tubs have a built in timer that turns off the pump in 15 - 20 minutes. For more tub time just hit the switch again but keep in mind that extended exposure in a hot tub can mess with your blood pressure and cause you to loose balance or pass out, hence the 20 minute timer.

Water won't stop flowing into tub


It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these: Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve. Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Whirlpool tub, jets come on and won't shut off. No water in tub.


Is it a jetted tub, or a air bath tub with holes or jets in the floor? If it has holes or jets in the floor, the control box is bad and needs replaced. If it is a jetted tub, there may be a water level sensor, if so the sensor may be bad causing the tub to turn on.
