We just installed a new moen 4 inch centerset Lindley faucett with drain for our bathroom. The drain piece has 2 molded holes in it. We are experiencing leaks from this pipe. How are we supposed to fix...


Ok I asked for some more information, but let me give it a try to help you with what I have here.

The two holes are for water to drain out of the over flow of the sink. If you look at the sink on the front side you may have to feel but there is one hole or up to three little ones. They take off water when someone walks away with the faucet on and they it goes down the drain and not on the floor.

Now if the sink your putting this in is a steel sink that does not have an over flow it will leak and you need an other drain system that is made for a sink with no over flow.

Places like manufactored homes, boats, campers would be where you would find a sink that does not have a over flow. Now with the over flow out if the sink does is not about1 inch thick.

if not use try more putty

Moen Model CA87888 4-hole 2 handle and sprayer kitchen faucet. I just installed it and it only works with the sprayer. When I turn on the faucet (hot or cold), I am only getting a very small trickle. ...


Pull the screen off the faucett, from the new install you probably clogged the screen. If you get good flow without the screen, clean your screen out and re-install. You will need to twist off the piece and the end of the faucett to get at screen. Pay attention to how it comes out so you can put it back in the same way.

I installed a dhc tankless heater, but when I open only the hot water everything is ok, but when I open the cold water at the same time the heater turns off.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What is happening is that your cold water flow is greater in volume (gals per min) than your hot water. So when you open the cold water it is mixing with the hot water inside the faucett or shower plumbing and actually reverse flowing back into the hot water heater plumbing. The reverse flow slows the water flow sensing turbine inside the heater and it is thinking that there is not any water flow. (There isn't actually due to the equalization of water pressure when you open the cold water faucett) Since this is a safety feature of the tankless heater to keep it from overheating, it shuts off.
Somewhere in the hot water plumbing there is a major restriction. It may very well be the internal plumbing of the tankless hot water heater or the flow detector design.

There are 2 ways to correct this. The easy way would be to restrict the available cold water flow. You can do this by installing another shut off valve inline with the cold water plumbing and just not open the valve all the way. You would have to adjust the setting so that the hot and cold water can be on at the same time and the hot water heater stays on. The hard way is to locate the hot water flow restriction and eliminate it.
It is possible.... if you have a flow restrictor in a shower head or a screen in a faucett areator that they are partially clogged. Clean any flow restrictors and screens then see how the hot water heater performs before you start modifying plumbing.

F20 inlet water problem, has been fixed twice in 1 week and still has the F20 code. What is the problem.


An F20 code is telling you that the anticpated fill time limit has been exceeded.

This can be caused by
1. Dirty water inlet screens on the water valve. Also possibly the hoses at the wall connection if the unit was installed with additional hose screens.
2. Kinked water supply hoses
3. LOW WATER pressure
4. A weak or open coil of the inlet water valve solenoid.
5. A kinked or restriction of the hose that goes from the water valve to the tub inlet.
6. (VERY RARE) A defective machine control board.
7. Bad faucett washers on the wall connection hose bibb where the rubber faucett washer has deterorated and is blocking or restricting water flow inside the shut off valve on the wall.
8. Debris blocking the diaphram of the water passages inside the inlet water valve (Can not be verified by disassembly due to the construction of the water valve.) You must check flow rate into the tub after verifying all the possibilites above except #6.

These are all real possibilites and each one of them must be checked out. This is not a difficult task and a good many washing machine users should be able to isolate the problem.

If you need machine specific information we will need your make and model number to assist you in the future.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The all in one tub/shower faucet constantly flows. What can I do to fix this problem? Now I am a woman, so please make it simple.


Go to home Depot or loew and buy the seat replacement kit for your model of faucett. Your going to have to break out the tools (Philipps Screwdriver and a larger adjustable wrench) The remove the shower knob cover with a knife to access the mounting screw. Remove the screw and then the knob. (STOP!) Go turn off the water for the residence now! Then come back and remove the nut holding the faucett in place. The whole assy will with a little effort will come straigth out at you. Moen isnotorious for having to remove a plate from the bottom of the valve. NOTE the position of that plate and then remove it. Remove all of the seat seals one at a time and replace them with the new ones you purchased. Reinstall the NEW lower plate in the same position you removed the old one. Reinsert the assy back into the valve body. Tighten the retaining nut. Reinstall knob and secure with screw. Replace knob cover. Turn on the water NOW. Enjoy the non-leaking faucett.

Seems it doesnt come on unless i turn on two


This is a common problem. They are desighned to come on when a certain volume of water goes through it and with todays low flow water conserving devises they don't always come on with one faucette.

You can have a loop installed that allows a higher volume of water to flow when a valve is turned on. It simply flows back into the supply side of the unit.
