In response to Re: Leaky bath faucet
: Will replacing an entire stem assembly when I've already replaced the washer and seat solve my leak? If the washer and seat are new, should this not have solved my problem, or do entire assemblies just wear out eventually and need replacing?

: Thanks for any help.

Replaceing the seat (with correct one) and the washer (with correct one) and with a good washer retainer on the end of the stem should solve your problem. You need to put pipe joint compound on the threads of the seat or the faucet will still leak. Water bypassing the stem and comeing out from behind the handle requires stem packing.
