Question about Whitehaus Plumbing

1 Answer

Kitchen faucet-Whitehaus brushed nickel # WHKBLV 9101BN. The spout leaks at the base, and our plumber's washers won't fit. We paid a bundle for this! and I hate to replace it with a cheap faucet. Do we need a washer or what? If so, who can send and how fast? Thanks, John Kuhnle 202/255-9476

John, there should be a parts diagram online. You will need to order the correct orings and install them using plumbers grease for lubrication.

How to rebuild a single handle delta kitchen faucet.

Step 1- Shut off water supply to your faucet.

Step 2- Use 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle from faucet.

Step 3- Next it has a retaining ring to loosen, they make a little spanner wrench to fit this in all complete rebuid kits. And then you are ready to loosen the collar.
To do this would be best to have a tool to grip the collar and not do damage to it. Some hardware stores carry rubber slip on's to fit on chanel locks pliers to avoid marking. Or if you have access to a strap wrench that will work.

Step 4- After collar removed, remove plastic cap and washer and ball. Seats and springs are located in valve bottom. Remove seats and springs with a small screw driver.

Step 5- Pull up spout to remove it to replace the o ring's on shaft. Also if it has a sprayer the diverter is in the base near the bottom. A little round brass diverter for sprayer.

Step 6-Install o rings for spout on base and diverter for sprayer if it has one. Plumbers grease will make install of spout easier to go back onto base. Now you can reinstall spout back onto base .

Step 7- Install new seat's and spring's with a small screw driver. Line screw driver to port and let spring and washer slide into place and press it gradually into place to seat in.

Step 8- Install new ball and notice that it has a groove in it to line up in valve.

Step 9- Install washer and plastic cap with slot in proper space.

Step 10- Install cap and tighten and adjust retaining ring to tighten up movement from spout from side to side. At this point you can turn water back on to make sure you have no leaks before tighting handle in place.

Step 11- Install handle and you're in business, and have rebuilt your very first faucet with knowledge to tackle the next plumbing project. Take your time and look closely how everything is put together, so you will know how it goes back together.
