Yes those need to be replaced and the leaks will stop ..They probably were metal side washers and they are worn away ...For the bathroom you need 3/8 washers...

I just had a plumber install new moen faucets in my bathroom sink. After he left, I discovered that there is a slow drip. These faucets are brand new! What could be wrong?


well it can only be 1 of 3 things, 1st can you tell if it is hot or cold water dripping?? 2nd is the handle loose can you wiggle them and 3rd how old is the faucet I know you said it is ''New" but it could be "old" stock from his shelf in which case the gaskets/O-rings could be dried out and needs to be replaced...
if loose then on top where the "c" or "H" is that cap comes off using a finger nail or small knife point pop off caps under caps there is a screw remove it but first turn off water under sink you will a bigger nut use a adjustable wrench to snug it more then try again if still leaking remove that big nut the is a washer on the bottom that will be leaking there are many sizes so you will have to buy an assortment with mixed sizes fond the two you need remove screw on bottom put new one in,,, put it all back together...
ps if you have vinger you can soak old washer but this only short term fix, replace washer

We have the Kokols Wallmount Bathroom Pedestal Glass Sink Vanity Combo but the p-trap keeps leaking. How do we fix it?


Remove it, (Don't forget water will come out when you uncscrew it!!!) clean it thoroughly, especially the ends, clean and check seating of any rubber washers to make sure they are fitted correctly and not being distorted when the rings are tightened, reseat it with no force (it should sit naturally without having to force it in) and tighten rings. There are lots of videos on youtube showing how. If you cant stop it leaking buy a new trap. It's worth while looking very carefully for exactly where the leak is before you remove the trap, it might be coming from higher up. Repair Leaky Sink Drain Pipe

When I turn on the cold or hot water sink faucet water leaks out from the top of the cold water faucet . I took the outer casking off and can not figure how to remove the stem. I removed the ring but...


if you have the ring removed, screw the handle back on and pull up on it,, your leak is probably due to a worn , torn , "O" ring,, and Moen parts are found at most hardware stores ,, ( including Home depot , and Lowes) On Moen faucets , Look for the dent in the flange that squares off,, where that square is on the ring, is where the retainer ring is that holds the faucet in place ..its a "C" clip with a head on it, remove this ring and the assembly should come out , be sure and use plumbers grease when replacing the O rings,, they last much longer that way

My waltec bathroom sink was leaking now that i messed with it ,its running by itself how do i fix this problem


It would help to know where is was leaking and what you "messed with"?

But in general, the idea is to replace the washers.
To do that, first turn off the water under the sink.
Then you first remove the handle on the leaking side.
There is often a small metal or plastic cover over a phillips screw.
Then remove the metal cap around the handle stem by unthreading or lifting up.
Then you can remove the valve by turning it as if to make the water go on.
It will have a washer on the bottom, held on with a screw.
Remove the screw, get a new washer, and then replace.

Need to change washer faucet


Probably what you need to do is change the cartridge. You will need a Moen cartridge puller to help with removal and reinstallation. You can get these and the cartridges at most hardware stores. Shut Off Water first, remove set screw that secures handle and carefully remove handle. You may have to tap lightly on rim of handle to free it. There is a retaining clip that holds cartridge in place, it will have a small round hole on top. Carefully remove clip using neddle nose pliers or perhaps ice pick inserted in hole to remove clip.Install puller as per instructions and tighten nut to remove cartridge. Install new cartridge andclip. put handle back on and install screw. I need to back up here and say that screw is normally located under moen insignia in middle of handle. Pry cover off with screw driver or knife blade to access screw. After you have cartridge, retaing clip and handle reinstalled turn water back on and check for leaks. Hope this helps. Thanks.

I have replaced the cartridge on my single faucet single handle moen kitchen tap, but water still leaks out under the central area that holds the cartridge. Is there a schematic that shows where and what...


did you replace the spout, -o- ring's. they would cause a leak to show up there as well.no need to pull cartridge again,just handle,and then pull up spout and that is it. there should be a small packet of lube w/ -o- ring kit,lube up around shaft and new -o- ring's.available at any good hrd ware store

I have a wall hung sink with a drain that leaks because I can't get the washer tight enough to the fixture. I've tried a couple of different sizes of washers, but no luck. I don't know what brand it is.


There should be between the washer and the sink fixture a large rubber washer that you can compress to seal the joint. You can also get a small tub of "plumber's putty. Use a small amount of putty, roll in a ball and turn into a snake shape..wrap in a coil around the sink before you slide the washer up and squeeze the washer into it.
Be sure to check the small ball socket that controls the sink drain plug. Sometimes the retainer nut isn't snug and it can leak a little and it will appear that the main drain is leaking... Hope this sloves your issue.
