Delta shower whine noise

My Delta shower was leaking so I recently replaced the full cartridge. Now the shower makes a whining noise when hot water is flowing. I tried another shower head, same problem. I tried removing the shower head all together, same problem. Any plumbers have a suggestion of what to try next? There was no noise when I had the old cartridge. Thanks for any advice.

SOURCE: I have a Delta 1400 single handle tub/shower valve

You might have to replace the tub spout, because the divirter is not closing all the way. A new one will stop water from getting by it.

SOURCE: Water leaks from the shower head. I have a delta

You may want to replace the ball or cartridge whichever the case may be. Also be sure to use Genuine Delta parts as they will hold up much better than the aftermarket parts. I hope this helps.

After changing my Delta shower cartridge i hear a whining noise when i run hot water in the shower. If I also turn on hot water in the bathroom sink (at same time) I get a banging noise from the pipes. ...


the banging noise is called water hammer and there are devices that can be added to your water lines to absorb the shock.

As for the noise, when you had the old cart out, did you flush out the faucet by turning in the water for a few seconds after removing the old one? This is a four hand job, one to control the water gushing out of the faucet and the other to conrol the shutoffs.
check seat and spring for correct assembly, the whine is caused by water pressure and flow obstruction.

I have a whining problem when the faucet is filling the tub. It appears only to be the cold water or with warm water. If we run scalding hot the noise goes away..


You have a feed back sound from the faucet cartridge. I hope when you turn the faucet off that there is no leak. If there is a leak then your cartridge is misalined. It will eventually leak and that is an easy fix.

Turn off the main water coming into the house
Remove the cap and handle of the faucet
There is a retaining pin on top, first by using a pointed instrument remove the retainer and it looks like an upside down U
Remove the cartridge and replace with a new.
Insert the new cartridge the same way you removed the old one
Install everything on reverse order.
Good Luck

The Delta shower Toe tester leaks profusely (hot water) when the water is turned off. Will changing the cartridge solve the problem?


There are several generations of Delta cartridges so yill need to remove your first to help your sales associate determine whick one is the correct one for you. One style includes extra parts called quad rings that must also be installed or a drip problem may not go away. Your local plumbing expert will help you in your selection.

Pulsating water and poor hot water pressure


Based on your description it sounds like the pressure balancing valve could be gunked up with particulate from your well or just worn out. If your water is not filtered to that shower I would lean more towards particulate. Try to remove the cartridge and take it to a plumbing parts store for a match-up since Delta makes several cartridges and you want to get it right the first time.

Water is not very hot.


First try adjusting the pressure balancing gear located right behind the handle. If you still do not have hot water I suggest to replace the cartridge.

Hi my delta single hanlde tub/shower facuet is leaking hot water bad


If its a ceramic cartridge type then replacing cartridge is called for, HOWEVER sometimes cheaper to replace complete tap.

If not ceramic then turn mains off and replace the washer inside.

My delta 132900 gets too hot.


With these Faucets, you can remove the handle and make adjustments to the max Hot water setting (scald guard).

You may also have a faulty or lime-covered cartridge.

SEE THIS SITE for making adjustments/replacing the cartridge.
