The Flapper Valve On My Kohler Toilet Won't Stay Open Long Enough For It To Flush Properly, I Have To Hold The Handle Down For A Long Time. How Do I Repair This?

Open the tank and watch the far up is it being pulled by the handle?  If there is very little distance between the flapper and where the water leaves the tank to flush the bowl....the pressure of the escaping water can close it.  To fix, move the "chain" between the handle and the flapper to make the chain shorter, thus pulling the flapper farther away from the exit.  Hope this helps.  If it doesn't, try replacing the flapper with a new one.  Thanks, Janes!
