Where does washer go for 12h-6h/c stem from Danco for faucet?
I have a 12h-6h/c stem from Danco for a Price Pfister faucet. The bubble pack comes with a loose washer, but there is no indication where the washer goes. It does not have an obvious location. If I put it on the bottom of the stem, it falls off. If I put it on the top of the stem, there is no place in which it can create a seal. Where does the washer go?

Is it brass, stainless, plastic or rubber? I think a stainless one might be for the knob screw, I don't think there is one inside, it might just have fallen into the pack. We get weird stuff all the time that doesn't belong. Hope this helps.

If you have the Price Pfister stems they leak or will , even after replaced with a new seat washer . Try switching factory flat washer with cone shape washer and always check the brass seat in manifold for cracks, very seldom replaced very cheap pack of 10 5$ save that water we take for granted!
Thanks to Danny Paccho I purchased a wrench to use in removing the sleeve from Geers Plumbing
Then , removed the \'87 Price Pfister faucet housing from the basin by disconnecting the 2 pipes under the basin and removing the top basin nut; inserted the wrench into the top, turning counter-clockwise until it locked (er tightened a bit) and hammered it out ,gently?, to not damage the escutcheon threads , or the basin nut.
first off, put the spring in the faucet big end down. then put the black rubber boot seal in next and push it into place. Then place the Stem in but be sure to line up the notches before you screw it all down. I hope the will help you....
Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.
#1 THE FAT PART OF YOUR SPRING GOES INSIDE THE FAUCET ,AND SIT ON THE VALVE BODY(SEAT)
#2 THE LITTLE BLACK WASHER SIT ON TOP OF YOUR SPRING #3 PUSH THE STEMS IN THE CORRECT SIDES HOT ON LEFT.CAUTION THERE IS USUALLY NOTCHES ON THE SIDES OF THE STEMS TO HELP YOU ALIGN THEM IN THE VALVE BODY, 4 PUT THE NUT BACK ON ,TIGHEN SLIGHTLY,TURN ON THE WATER TO CHECK ,IF OK RE INSTALL YOUE HANDLES
The stem and washers inside the faucet need to be replaced.
