Put Fluidmaster 747 in Kohler. Attached the rubber fill tube hose, but no water comes out of it. Was I supposed to rotate the blue cap? It has to have water manually added to flush thoroughly. Help!

I think the answerers so far have missed the question. I have the same issue. I just installed a new Kohler 747 ant it works fine EXCEPT there is no water coming out of the white nipple/black tube, to refill the bowl. Is there some kind of internal setting to allow or not allow bowl fill tube? There is on some a reducing roller pinch valve to tame how much goes to the bowl, but zero does not work for me.

SOURCE: I have a fill valve

There should be a small flexible tube/hose that came with this and goes over where the water is spraying out, it should look like a little nipple, the hose goes on there and then to the white tube appoximately an inch or so in diameter that goes to the bottom of the tank where the flapper ball is connected. The small flexible tube is supposed to connect to the top of the larger tube via a clip so-as to fill the toilet bowl back with water. If everything is connected like it's supposed to be then you might have a cracked fluidmaster.

Hi tdechill...
Make sure the hose that goes to the top/side of the fluidmaster is in the overflow tube of the water tank, if it is then It should not spray water from the top, it is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Twist the Blue top cap counter clockwise. This will remove the top. Inside, you will find a white round rubber piece that has most likely become dirty and stiff. Push the round upper cap up and down with your thumb in the middle of the top rounded part of this piece. Once the piece seems softer and more flexible, if you have already cleaned it, place it back into the top of the fixture with the smaller round end down. Place the cap back on, rotate it clockwise until it clicks in secure. At that point, it should work fine and the water squirting out of the top should be stopped or reduced significantly so that you can continue to use the toilet.

Can i put a fluidmaster 400A in a Kohler Rialto


Save that valve... !
Use a fluidmaster (diaphram) part #242 as a replacement substitute!!
Easier than most pill bottles... !!!
(turn off the water)
The valve seems to be very thin plastic but mine lasted 20 years before needing a new diaphram. I cold hear the water going (seep. seep, seep))... and changed the flapper valve... Wrong!
I actually bought the new white plastic one to experiment on... but never got that far... Great price ($26) from Amzn (new spare... still in box)

The white VALVE (right) end of the 1068030 twists off easier ... over the top (clockwise: less than 1/8 turn... there is a little white lock bar on the very back that has to be pressed in to allow rotation).
Ignore the (blue) float lever... you wont be turning anything that far.
The expensive & unavailable KOHLER diaphram can be substituted with a $2 FLUIDMASTER #242 diaphram... available everywhere... Home Depot, ACE, General Plumbing Supply...
(Amazon = $4 +/- shipping, (local "dealer" had nothing in stock... of course)).
Kohler.com ships for a whole lot more!
Sadly... THAT very SAME FLUIDMASTER #242 will also fit in the "Kohler 703" valve everybody seems to be throwing away (the easiest valve I have ever repaired).
The GRAY "703" valve seems to be very thin plastic but mine lasted 20 years before needing a new diaphram.
That is a hard twist 1/8 turn: counter-clockwise... same #242 diaphram... 5 minute job!
Six minutes if you hold a cup over the valve and rinse it out like you are supposed to do...

I have a fill valve that says Fluidmaster 747. when tank goes to fill it sprays water out at the top


There should be a small flexible tube/hose that came with this and goes over where the water is spraying out, it should look like a little nipple, the hose goes on there and then to the white tube appoximately an inch or so in diameter that goes to the bottom of the tank where the flapper ball is connected.

My fluidmaster 747 in a Kohler low tank is shooting water and running down the front of the tank with every flush


Twist the Blue top cap counter clockwise. This will remove the top. Inside, you will find a white round rubber piece that has most likely become dirty and stiff. Push the round upper cap up and down with your thumb in the middle of the top rounded part of this piece. Once the piece seems softer and more flexible, if you have already cleaned it, place it back into the top of the fixture with the smaller round end down.

I recently replaced the flush valve with the fluidmaster repair kit. Now I don't get any water coming from under the rim of the bowl when flushed. I noticed the rubber gasket wasn't the same, does this...


No, that won't make a difference. Check instead that the tubing from the fill valve that you replaced is connected to the overflow tube (the tall tube). Fluid-master provides a clip for this purpose in their kits.

Best regards,

Water squirts from tank while filling


Take lid off and check that the fill tube is in place. If so flush with lid off to see were the water is squirting from, be prepared to clean up water...If you can, do a slight flush. If there is water coming from any where but the bottom of fill valve and the fill tube you may need to replace the fill valve. In my experience, the fill tube is dissconected.

How do you get the top plastic cap off the Kohler Ingenium flush


My Kohler Ingenium has no pins. The white cap is attached to the grey lever which must be lifted up before twisting both one-eighth turn counter-clockwise, and lifting off of fill tube. Turn the water supply back on and flush the tube out (cover with cup first!). Use a thin wire rod about 12" long to gently poke down into fill tube to clear any clogs. Also check where the small flexible fill tube exits from the main fill tube. Reassemble and cross your fingers.

Toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid


Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.


If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil

Hi kayela,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Just replace the fill valve for kohler one piece andthe fill valve sprays a stream of water out of the top and onto the undersideof the lid is that supposed to happen?

For some reason I can't seem to get the picture up. Nevertheless, the answer is no, it should not be leaking. Did you take a picture of the original before removal? Do you still have the original? Look carefully at the diference between the two. Make sure it's an exact duplicate and isn't missing parts. These one piece toilet parts are expensive but the suplier sometimes makes mistakes. You can only solve this problem if they match.
