My both room has a small water leak

Dear Master:

My both tub has a small water leak from the connection between the brass part of the valve and the plastic part of a 1/2'' pipe. The two parts are screwed together. Can I fix the leak by some way, such as a glue, without taking apart of the parts?
Many thanks,

Jason Nie

If the two parts screw together you need to get some plumbers tape , turn the water off ,dry the ends and put the tape on tight and just re-screw them back together.

Why is my Moen universal shower faucet leaking at the union


It sounds like you know what you're doing, but if it has O'rings, try replacing those. If there is a snug fix with the valve then the leak is a problem with the inner workings of the cartridge.

We own a brass master plus model #BP35 just had it sent in for a rebuild got it back and it still doesnt work tank is filling with way to much water we checked the little dial to make sure it was at 1


see the next steps information and fix it, use the common sense>God bless you
Water Inlet Valve
First check to see if water is entering the machine when it is shut off if it is, replace water inlet valve. If no water enters the machine when it is shut off the water inlet valve is not the problem.

Pressure Switch
The pressure switch controls the level of water in your washing machine. This does this by a small chamber on the side of the tub, this chamber fills with water wich in turns creates pressure in the chamber. There is a hose connected to this chamber that runs up to the switch. When the right amount of pressure is applied to the switch it stops the water flow. If the hose becomes clogged up, gets punctured or cracks and leaks the hose will need to be cleaned or replaced. If the hose looks good and has no holes check the pressure switch by checking it for continuity when blowing on the end of the hose. This will close the switch and simulate pressure. If you have no continuity when the switch is closed replace the pressure switch, this video will walk you thru replacing and testing.

We have a 20 year old tub shower single valve. We replaced the brass cartridge with a plastic cartridge and water is leaking out of the front when the water is on. Do we need to replace it with a brass...


I'm not now nor have I ever been a fan of the plastic moen replacement cartrideges. I don't know if they still do but probably about twenty five years ago I tried using a few of the plastic replacements,mostly due to high cost of the brass moen factory ones I think every one leaked. Then I actually read on the instructions that it was not unusual for them to leak some. My suggestion is to get a good brass moen magnum cartridge and be done with it for another twenty years. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Have a hotpoint top loading that A..would not stop filling even unplugged, and B. will not drain/spin. Hence, ended up with a flooded room while I was trying to get the water turned off. Any easy way to...


Hi
If your washer is overfilling, check these:
Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.
Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
When it doesnt spin or drain...

The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump.Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port.

Water coming from bottom of machine


If this only happens when the machine is filling the hose leading to the top of the tub may be leaking. Before it fills this hose is disconnected from the water supply by a closed solenoid valve. There are two valves which feed into a common hose that comes up to the top of the tub where the water runs into the tub. The leak does not happen after the tub fills because all the water leaks out and no new water runs in. These hoses are usually very small and very inexpensive and held on with clamps. They can usually be replaced by removing a small panel near the hose attachment location.
