You need to replace the diverter, if on the end of the tub spout replace the whole spout.

I installed a Moen L2353E tub/shower faucet and water won't come out of shower head


Couple of ideas: If you don't get water at all first check to see if the shut-off valves are open. If so, close them and remove and clean the cartridge. If water comes from the spout and not the shower head, make sure the diverter (the handle on the tub spout) moves up when you pull it. If that works, remove and clean the shower head since there might be debris blocking the water flow. Without
more info this is my best guess.

Replaced delta valve with moem. when water to toub is turned on at high pressure water comes out of the shower head. Valve is installed correctly. Took cartridge out of valve and blew back through shower...


The pipe going from the main valve to the tub spout(not the sprayer above)needs to be a full 1/2" pipe if you used a pex 1/2" to the tub spout-the inside is usually smaller and causes it to back pressure and make water release thru the sprayer above-needs to be installed with a full 1/2" ID PIPE-AND DONT USE GALVANIZED

We have installed a moen 82490 one handle tub & shower unit. When we turn on the water you could shower and bath at the same time. If you pull the plug for just a shower the water to the spout stops...


If you pull the silver knob on the tub spout up, the diverter located located inside will redirect water up to the shower head and when lowered it will return the water to the tub spout. It sounds as thought the diverter is not working properly. Hope this helps..

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.

Moen shower valves are failing


the diverter is stuck. you have to move it up and down to free it up. the diverter is the mechanism attached to the tub spout that switches the water from shower to tub. you may also need a new diverter if fiddling with it doesn't work.

When the shower valve is engaged I still get water out of the tub spout and limited water out of the shower head. I just replaced the cartridge thinking that might be the problem but no luck


it sound's like you need to replace the tub spout.there should be a set screw on the bottom of spout loosen and twist off. replace with moen spout for ease of re-install.it's a real pain in the *** to try and replace -o- ring spout.
