SOURCE: Bathtub Whirlpool button isn't working when pushed

It sounds like a bad air switch. This switch is located on the pump/motor, and is usually found at the end of a clear piece of tubing going to a box on the pump/motor, the other end of the tubing is connected to the push button on the tub. The replacement switches are avaliable through online parts companies. The best thing is to pull the pump and open the box with the switch in it. I have replaced the switch without pulling the pump/motor, but it is difficult and requires plenty of room. If you are not comfortable with doing this repair, call a reputable spa repair company.

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

The gasket around the jet may be leaking because it is deteriorating or the flange nut on the outer side of the jet has loosened up. Check all jets for loose hardware.

Jets won't turn off. Pushing the button does nothing. We have to unplug it (inside skirt) to shut off jets

New? Who installed? If installer, call him back. If you did it, you missed some control wiring from main box to the controls outside or someone shorted you on some critical control parts. If you aren't sure what your doing via the owner's manual, you need a good technician. Water and Electricity don't mix and can be dangerous!.

Where the filter is located

There are no filters on jetted bathtubs. There is a screen with dozens of holes located in the footwell of the tub. that is the suction cover. the water flows through that screen into the front of the pump and then out through each of the water jets.

DO NOT use products with glycerine or oil in any Jacuzzi or whirlpool bath. It will harm the jets. Label oil or glycerine-containing gifts, "Not for Jacuzzi or whirlpool!"

How do I remove jets to clean them? I have a

Some jets are removable for cleaning and some are not. Consult Kohler about the jet removal. Normally if a jet is removable it will turn to the left (looking at the jet straight on) and then will pop with a little more force. I suggest contacting Kohler before attempting to remove the jets.
