Leaking Kitchen Tap

I have this tap in my kitchen (Atlanta Single Lever Tap PVD Stainless Steel Atlanta Single Lever Tap PVD Stainless Steel) and it has two sections, and the top section leaks, and we have to leave it in a certain position otherwise the tap will slowly leak eveywhere.
Is it the washer? if so how does the tap come apart? Do you have to turn the water supply off prior to dismantling the tap?

Yes your right it's the seal inside and it can be replaced you should shut the water off after all why make a mess when you don't have to. however I'm not familiar with this typ of faucet. you more than likely be able to get help from your local area hardware store when you purchase your gasket for replacement.

We heard a loud gushing sound and the dishwasher leaked all over the kitchen floor. Why?


The drain hose may have disconnected from the dishwasher or at the waste trap or the drain hose maybe broken.
If the drain hose is OK then the water supply hose may have disconnected from the tap or the water hose is broken and fresh water is leaking from this hose.

Single handle Spray faucet leaks at it's base, leaking under the kitchen sink


If you still have the receipts from the purchase call Moen directly as they warranty their faucets for life and will send you the replacement parts you need. If you need to purchase replacement parts then you can purchase a Moen single lever repair kit from your local hardware store which should run you around $10. Go the the Moen website and look for your model. They generally have an exploded view of every one of their models that will assist you in dissassembling the tap without any surprises. Reassemble the tap with the new o-rings etc installed and test.

Leaking single lever kitchen tap


on most of the single handle faucets there is an erasure like button ( may have a hot and cold blue and red indicator or be silver ) usually located right under the faucet arm on the manifold chrome sleeve or back behind the arm or it could have a large ring nut over the doam of the lever take your hand and feel the area that covers the area where the spout arm swivels and feel for the button or take your fingers and fel the to of the lever doam

if you find the button just take a sharp screw driver( be sure to plug the drain holes and turn hot and cold water off under sink) pry the button off and use a hex wrench and loosten

if no button then there has to be a large nut on top you may seee two grooves oppsoite each other wheich would mean a special tool

use an adjustable wrench (put cloth ofer chrome to protect and turn counter clock wise( the ring nut will not be very thick

after removing you should be able to replace the cartridge

good luck
