I actually found a pebble under the valve stem, for our cold water tap, for our wash machine. Looks like the OP is going to have to shut water off, then remove the valve stems and see what is going on. Best case scenario, need to change them out. Worst case scenario, you get to tell the significant other, that you are going to be busy, so you are unable to go do something with them.

Sorry, do you mean one to hold behind the red rubber ring (the pipe) and one to hold the part in front of the red rubber ring (the valve)?

Going to need two wrenchs, one to hold the pipe and one to turn the valve.
