how to replacing valve seat

For a standard seat replacement you will need to shut off water and remove stem. Below the stem is the seat. It will either have a square center hole or hexagonal hole. If you don't have a seat wrench, you can get one at the hardware store when you pick up your replacement seats and washers. The new seats might not have the same inside type hole, so buying a tool that has both styles would be helpfull. Insert the correct seat tool into the seat and turn counter clockwise to remove seat. Reverse this to install new seat. Be sure to put a small amount of of pipe joint compound on the seat threads before installing. Replace the stem washers and reinstall on faucet. Make sure you take off the aerator or shower head and flush debris from system when you turn on the water. If your valve is a wall mount faucet with horizontal stems, you will need to take the faucet off at the union nuts and replace the seats from the back side of valve body. Remember, Lefty Loosy and Righty Tighty.
Hope this helps and good luck.

The stem and washers inside the faucet need to be replaced.

If you Do it yourself the parts typically will cost you less than 20 bucks.

Most plumbers will charge 75 to 100 for this relatively simple Job.

You can order parts directly from the manufacturer, or from a local plumbing supply house.

i have all 3 new shower valves purchased from home depot to replace old and they are all leaking from the threads where you tighten down vave stem.Ive tried thread tap they still leak...

Most Price Phister valve cartridges have a plastic washer or "O" ring at the base of the cartridge, where it screws into the valve body. Replacements should be available at H/Depot, Lowe's/similar.

shower spout

There is a threaded stem that passes through the spout and attaches to the white plastic diveter valve. If you are starting from scratch (everything apart), you can put it back together in this order:
1) Place the white plastic diverter inside the spout. the circular side with the black round washer should face the the wall side of the shower (mating up against the threads for the water pipe).
2) The stem can now be inserted from the top and into the notched section of the white plastic diverter valve. The threaded end of the stem shoud be outside of the spout (from the top side).
3) A round black washer fits over the threads. It should sit right where the threads end. Dont push it all the way on to the unthreaded portion of the stem.
4) Screw the threaded knob onto the threads.

Should be ready to install now. Including the spout itself, there are 5 parts and are configured in this order from top to bottom.
1) Female threaded knob (the knob for operating the spout)
2) Threaded stem (threads on top)
3) Round black washer
4) Spout
5) Whit plastic diverter valve.

Mine leaks when I turn on the shower, thus reducing shower pressure. I looks like a poor design to me. The stem is not a tight fit in the spout and this allows the diverter to "wobble". The washer on the diverter valve does not seat tightly and allows water to leak out the tub spout when showering. I would replace the spout.
