Question about Price Pfister 01-111 Shower Head, Tub Spout and Valve Set

1 Answer

Help! When I pull out the control stem on the tub spout to send water through the shower head most of the water continues to flow out through the tub spout. Is there something that I can replace or repair or does the whole assembly need to be replaced. Most importantly, how do I do it? I am not a plumber. Thanks

You can replace the assembly and not have to worry about taking apart the stem or, you can get a replacement diverter. The spout will twist off turning counterclockwise.

I installed a Moen L2353E tub/shower faucet and water won't come out of shower head


Couple of ideas: If you don't get water at all first check to see if the shut-off valves are open. If so, close them and remove and clean the cartridge. If water comes from the spout and not the shower head, make sure the diverter (the handle on the tub spout) moves up when you pull it. If that works, remove and clean the shower head since there might be debris blocking the water flow. Without
more info this is my best guess.

Why does the water not flow from shower valve when turned on?


Do you have water coming out of the tub spout and not the shower head? If so how does the water get directed to the shower head,is it by pulling up the diverter on the tub spout?If water is still coming out of the tub spout then the diverter is bad and the tub spout needs to be replaced.

To talk about your problem forces me to assume a few things.....If you allow the water to flow without cartridges and handles, the water must be flowing straight through the cartridge channels and out into the tub. It is not flowing through your tub spout or shower head when you test the water this way. If I'm correct, then the problem is isolated to the water mix operation. That means coming out of your spout or shower head. So now I have to ask a question. When you operate as normal (cartridges and handles installed) does your problem show up only on your shower head or does it also show up when operating out of the tub spout? If the problem is isolated to the shower head, try a head replacement. It may be partially plugged. If it's head or spout there may be something in the mixing pipe that only shifts around as pressure increases. I hope that is not your problem. It would require pulling those pipes out for inspection and most likely replacement. Nimsgame

Water comes out of the spout and shower head when I want to shower. This is after I replaced all the stems with new ones


The gate or bypass put of the tub spout is not stopping all of the water from coming out of it so that means it is not diverting all of the water to the shower head. The tube spout is not made for rebuilding in most cases but you could take it off and look for some sort of debris that may be causing this to happen.

Ahhh... I bought an older condo and I have a bathtub/shower. The shower head is mounted on the wall and a switch at the faucet switches between the shower and the tub. The problem? When I switch from tub...


Normally the diverter in the spout does just that. It's basically just a little door you pull up to stop water from flowing out the outlet to bathtub, and it diverts water to shower head as it has no where else to go, as the door has been shut. Think of a "T", if you have water coming in, it's going to go out both openings if nothing stopping them, and they are at same level, but when you plug lower one, the water flows up and out the other. My guess is your getting very little pressure from head when it's still coming out at tub.
NOTE: before attempting this, make sure you incoming water supply to house is shut off at valve. Anyway, those spouts are usually held on by a set screw up under bottom side of faucet near back of it, (close to tub) there should be a small slot which will probably be an allen head or philips. You back that screw out, then twist and pull and it should slide off of copper pipe. If no indication under there of a set screw then there are also those that just thread on, which requires you just turn faucet counterclockwise to remove. Replace entire piece all in one, and be done with it. Most hardware or home centers will sell just that separate. Make sure you get the one with diverter. (handle that you pull.) Clean pipe well with steel wool if it's dirty and corroded before sliding new one on, and wipe some "vaseline" on pipe to help and protect "O" ring inside spout. Slide new on on all the way and tighten set screw on underside. If threaded, clean threads, add pipe dope or teflon tape and thread it on until aligned and tight. Good Luck.

2 things can be happing here depending on the age of the tub spout. If the spout is more than 5 years old, you may need to replace it. if not that old then you may have a screen filter blockage in the shower head itself. remove the shower head from the shower neck and see if there is anything in the filter. while you have the head removed, try the tub spout again and see if problem continues. this should guide you in the next step to either replace the tub spout or just clean the shower head screen filter. Hope this helps.

No running water from my shower


Check water lines to shower and make sure that there is no blockage or water cut off to it. Valve itself could be bad also or blockage inside it.

I f it is a tub & shower unit the diverter may be bad or stuck in place restricting water flow. Some are push button on the valve or a pull unit on tub spout to send water to shower head.
Cut water off and remove to inspect for reason not functioning correctly.
Remove shower head to inspect for blockage. The srceen may be stopped up for the shower head. Remove turn water on and see if any flow comes out shower arm.

Price Pfister Shower--No water to shower


Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?

Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?

It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled

Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?

Good luck

Shower spout


There is a threaded stem that passes through the spout and attaches to the white plastic diveter valve. If you are starting from scratch (everything apart), you can put it back together in this order:
1) Place the white plastic diverter inside the spout. the circular side with the black round washer should face the the wall side of the shower (mating up against the threads for the water pipe).
2) The stem can now be inserted from the top and into the notched section of the white plastic diverter valve. The threaded end of the stem shoud be outside of the spout (from the top side).
3) A round black washer fits over the threads. It should sit right where the threads end. Dont push it all the way on to the unthreaded portion of the stem.
4) Screw the threaded knob onto the threads.

Should be ready to install now. Including the spout itself, there are 5 parts and are configured in this order from top to bottom.
1) Female threaded knob (the knob for operating the spout)
2) Threaded stem (threads on top)
3) Round black washer
4) Spout
5) Whit plastic diverter valve.

Mine leaks when I turn on the shower, thus reducing shower pressure. I looks like a poor design to me. The stem is not a tight fit in the spout and this allows the diverter to "wobble". The washer on the diverter valve does not seat tightly and allows water to leak out the tub spout when showering. I would replace the spout.
