If its leaking when faucet is in off position than seats and springs will need to be replaced. To do this shut off water to faucet both hot and cold. The handle is held on by a allen head set screw on the back side of handle . Loosen set screw and carefully remove handle,this make take alittle persuasion but don't force it. Carefully rock back and forth and tap lightly on base of handle .When you get handle off the round cap assembly will need to be removed,it has serrations at bottom to grip it withchannel lock pliers. You need to be very careful here and not use too much force because if you do you will twist copper fittings inside of faucet and ruin it. If it does not come loose fairly easily by turning counterclockwise you can use a mini hack saw or just hacksaw blade and carefully split cap on back side. Go slow stopping often to make sure you don't go any deeper then absouletly neccesary. If you slightly mark retaining threads it's not terrible. Most of the cut is not to bad because all parts immediatly underneath are easily replaced. When you get almost all the way thru take a large blade screwdriver insert in slot you have cut and twist back and forth to break cap the least of the way. Cap will be easy to remove now,take it off and pull out control ball along withrubber seal. There will be a small round rubber seat on bottom,one for hot and one for cold remove them and springs underneath them.Replace all parts that may have been damaged.needless to say you will need cap and seat and springs at the least.Repair kits are redily available just follow instruction and you should be fine.I know it's a pain but if you take your time you can save a good faucet. Hope this helps. Thanks

How do i stop a slow drip in a tub faucet?

A drip is caused by seepage from the water supply. Remember the water supply enters your home under pressure, so there must be a watertight seal holding back the incoming water when the faucet handle is in the OFF position. That seal is usually created by a washer pressed tightly against the faucet seat. Obviously, when the washer or the seat is not functioning properly, a little water can seep through and drip out of the faucet spout. To stop the drip, all you usually have to do is replace the washer or repair the seat.

Water continues to drip into the washer when it is finished with cycle and turned off

Water valve is located at the rear of the machine with the water hoses attached to it. Disconnect power. Remove hoses and unscrew the small angled bracket attached to the valve. Replace the valve and your problem will be solved. Part Number is 2200270. This the only possible cause for the symptom you describe.

Make sure the drip is continuous because the shower head will drip for a few minutes until it empties out. Replace the cartridge or washer kit if it keeps dripping.
