Hi. Hoping to make a repair to a toilet that will not fill without an expensive plumber visit. The toilet tank is not filling with water. The water just runs and runs and never fills. It is a canister style toilet flapper with a fluidmaster 400 antisiphon flush valve. The toilet is a 2007 Kohler class 1033131

Is it likely that it is the seal that is leaking on the canister or a problem with the fill valve. I feel qualified to replace a seal. I've don't that successfully on flapper style toilets.

Thank you for any advice!

Answer: 
The old seal will be soft, pliable and stretched larger. Replace the seal.
Somehow my seal moved to the top side of the canister not sealing at all. Replaced with a new seal and in its proper position and it worked perfectly.

Answer: 
I'd try the gasket first, it's the least expensive solution. If the existing gasket is more than a few years old it's likely the source of your problem.

This question is for the older style 2 piece Kohler toilets (model 4634-AA) with the 3 and 1/4" flapper valve. Notice the extra large nut holding the assembly onto the tank. It's obvious that in order to remove the seal inside the toilet, the entire flush assembly around the flush hole must be removed. That means loosening the extra large nut holding it on from the bottom. But I can't find the part # of the specail tool / wrench needed. What is it?

The attached picture shows the bottom of the tank and me trying to replace the wrong part only to realize the part I got was small enough to fit inside the flush hole. This model has a 3.25" flapper valve, not a 2" flapper valve. Getting off the extra large nut is the main problem and needs a special tool or wrench.

Answer: 
No tools were needed.. shut of the water hold the handle up and you can get to the seal at the bottom of the canister. My old one got sticky and was hard to flush. There is a little plastic that you twist to release the canister. Check the web site for a directional video..

You're right, you don't need a special tool but you're wrong that you can reach in and turn the assembly with the overflow tube on it.

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. I apologize but there is no special tool/wrench needed to replace th GP1059291. What you need to do is take the piece that the rim feed hose goes through the middle of and turn it counter clockwise and it will unlock; pull out that piece and then the outside shell that the gasket is attached to will come out; lastly take the old seal off and put the new seal on.

Turn off the water supply to the toilet.
Pull out the soft rubber tube that connects to the top of the filler column in the center of the tank.
While gently twisting, pull out the big tube in the center of the tank. It has a T shaped catch at the bottom that will pull out. Don't work too fast, be patient and it pulls out. It'll flush when you pull it out.
The rubber ring at the bottom diameter just pulls out of the end of the big tube you just removed. there's no glue or fasteners, it's just resting in a groove.
put in the new ring.
push the big tube back down (now that it's out you can see the T at the bottom of the tube and if you look into the tank you can see where it fits into. it's obvious once it's apart.
look to see that the new ring is concentric in it's seating.
turn the water back on.
if it still leaks after you replaced it, repeat these steps making sure to properly load the rubber ring into it's seat.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 103 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kohler Canister Seal The old seal had developed a blister which caused water to flow out of the tank. It turned out to be an easy job to remove the old seal and replace it with the new one from Home Depot. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Did what it's supposed to do. Simple install and solved problem. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stop a Leak The yellow seal to replace the old leaking red seal worked perfectly. No more leaks and running toilet in the middle of the night. Replacement was a breeze. Takes a few minutes to replace. Look online for video if you have questions on replacement. Removing the canister is tricky because while turning it almost seems like you are going to break the plastic. Use two hands to twist from top & bottom. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stopped my running toilet My toilet started running for a second every 5 minutes or so. Dropped some food coloring in the tank to see if the gasket was leaking, and sure enough it was. Upon removal of the original red gasket, I could see in locations that the seal had swollen. I suspect it was from the use of Clorox bleach toilet cleaning tablets. This new yellow gasket states it "resists chemical attacks". Hopefully this one will have a longer life. I feel that $7 for a gasket this size is overpriced. Should have been at most $4. Took about 2 minutes to install. July 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leaking Toilet Fix Seal was easy to install and fixed leaking Kohler toilet. Excellent installation instructions via video August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Purchase Kohler replacement for a Kohler product. Made with the better quality material. Don't cheap out and get the "other" brand's 2-pack where you only use one and throw away the other - made with the same inferior red material as the Kohler original. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product. Good product. Easy to install. It is universal and work on all Kohler August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kind of expensive,but neccessary Easy to install,now the toilet doesnt "cycle" filling,and flushes easier too. It's made of different material from what originally came with the toilet. Expensive at almost 7 dollars for a seal ring. Stopped the toilet from periodic filling that was caused by the old one leaking water into the bowl. August 2, 2016
