leaky bathroom faucet; how do I change washer


My bathroom sink faucet is leaking and I believe the washer needs to be changed.

It is a one handle faucet.

Where is the washer?
Do I have to somehow figure out how to remove the handle?

The handle lifts up and you can go either way for hot and cold.
there are no visible screws that I can see.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'd have to know a lot more about your particular faucet, but here's a link that should be useful: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/pl_fau...270854,00.html

Yummy; sorry cant stop smilin
First off if single lever, NO washers.
Second what brand? Delta seems most poplar.
Third you will find a small set screw either underneath or in the back of the handle. TURN OFF THE WATER B4 YOU TRY THIS AT HOME!!!!!!!
If it is a delta you can get a rebuild kit from eithet Hd or Lowes.
Quite simple to replace.

Now why can't you stop smilin?

The brand is Zucchetti, by Natphil.

There is a screw underneath the spout.

If there is no washer, then how would I fix the leak?

If it's the faucet I'm thinking of, you'll need to unscrew the barrel handle from the cap to access to set screw. Once you have the cap off, you'll need to turn the water off to take it apart any farther. Sometimes, the handle screw will also hide behind a logo plate or hot/cold label.

A lot of modern styled faucets use enclosed cartridges for the guts. There may be rubber washers around the ceramic heads...but you'll be hard pressed to find them at a home center, or even a plumbing supply for that matter.

Your best bet would be to contact the manufacturer for a repair kit.

By the way, I looked up that link that you gave me, and they emailed me back with a toll free number for the manufacturer who will help me.

Thanks very much.
