      sounds like you have a bad washer on that side.

      I’ve got the same problem, and have planned to replace the washer or the whole stem if needed on that side, but the handle screw is rusted so badly it won’t budge, the center of it is also stripped away so a screwdriver is no longer able to grip anything. I’ve tried Home Depot’s suggestions of hair spray and vinegar to no effect. Is there any way to get this screw and then the handle out, or do I have to knock a hole in the wall??
