I'll agree with that. Our last tub, and a friends both required priming the
There should be a large 2.5 - 3" round hard fitting on the flex PVC line
to-from the pump impeller.
The filling of the tub each time left an airlock just outside the impeller.
I had to take a large Channel Lock and undo the fitting, let some water
(maybe half a cup)/air gurgle out
(Don't undo so far the "O" ring falls out) then tighten up and try a
restart. Always worked for me.
If that doesn't work, I'd go with the spun impeller theory and shut off the
gate valves and power and pull the motor/impeller housing and check it out
BTW: There was no "bleeder" on either of these two or on my older tub. This
was the only way to do it.
