Whirlpool tub does not work
 
The tub came with our new home in 2004 and was working fine until recently. You can push the button and hear a humming noise but no suction. I have tried turning the nozzles for the jets to make sure they are not closed, but still nothing. We have barely used the tub (at the most 20 times since we have had it-it collects dust most of the time). Any suggestions on what it could be and how to fix the issue?

Thanks,
Roxane

i have repaired a few jetted tubs that are not used much by replacing pump shaft seals. my guess is the dried out seals shrink and lock shaft up. not saying it is in your case but it has fixed 2 for me
