Kohler whirlpool type tub will not pump water out of its jets or take water into the intake. Pump appears to operate fine. Water does not want to move. Suggestions?


When a bath pump turns on but does not move any water it is usually because there is an Air Lock and needs to be released.Try this.
  • Fill the tub with water
  • Turn the pump on
  • Unthread the discharge pump union until water starts to squirt out
  • when this happens you should hear a big 'swoosh'


if the bath pump starts to discharge water through the jets then you have solved the problem.

I have a kohler bath jet tub. When I push the button the motor tries to start and then trips the gfi breaker. Thought maybe it was the gfi breaker and replaced it. Wasn't it. I took out the gfi breaker and...


Did you try an electric motor rebuilder? $500 seems too high to repair a motor. Motors have either a capacitor or dual windings to get them started and it sounds like yours has failed. Get the numbers off the MOTOR and call a motor rebuilder in your area for pricing.

I have a Kohler whirlpool. When I turn on the pump it leaks under the crawlspace.


Hi,
Most likely the seal at the pump shaft is bad and the water leaks out as the motor is running...this can be fixed by an experienced plumber, but is rather difficult and parts are hard to find.
Replacing the whole pump and motor may be the best option...

Kohler Whirlpool tub motor problem. Turn motor on and trips GFI. It looks like the GFI is wired right and suggestions


Unplug tub from GFI, does GFI hold, plug something else into GFI to see if it holds under load. If all is ok then make sure you have a good ground from the motor to the GFI and the polarity is good. If 120 vac black wire to gold post, white wire to silver post and ground to green. Check proper connections, including polarity and ground at tub junction box and at pump motor it self.

My Kohler whirlpool started on its own with no water in it. We turned it off with the switch and it hasn't happened again. Is there a danger of it starting a fire if we are away from home and it does it...


Most Kohler tubs have a water sensor or water level sensor. Is this an air bath tub (holes in the floor)? or a jetted tub? If it is an air bath, the tub will purge after using it 15 to 30 minutes ater it is drained. If it is programable it will come on every 24 hours if it has been programmed. If it is a jetted tub, there may have been water on the sensor and caused it to start up. If it is a single on/off button the switch could have gotten water and caused it to start up, or there is a problem with the control box. It usually will not start a fire if it comes on, most of the newer pumps have run dry seals. If you leave the house for vacation or weekends, I would advise unplugging the tub or turning off the breaker.

The water jet pump wont turn off or sometimes turns on by itself


go online to kohler and they will send you out a new switch,, it isn't that hard to install, this will solve your problem and I think if you tell them it was put in not to long ago they will send it for free

II have a kohler jacauzzi baththub and it's not coming on. Help, we need to fix it because we're in the process of selling our home. We already checked the breaker in the basement. Thanks in advance.


There may also be a breaker close to the tub and a reset button inside of the unit. I would begin by opening up the base and looking for a reset button. good luck

Kohler bathtub spa does not work at all


you need to see if there is power to the pump 1st, there may be a switch somewhere thats not been switched on or it may have tripped out so check that. the air pressure switch maybe faulty or the plastic hose may have even come away from the switch.think of the basics 1st then look deeper, if you have power at the pump then it can only be the switch or worse case scenario a new pump.
you might have to remove the bath panel to gain access to the pump better?

kindly
