I have been having a problem with my shower diverter. A strong stream of water flows out of the tub spout when I turn the diverter stem to the right. However, when I turn the diverter to the left, water comes out of the tub spout and the shower head. I suspected that something is not sealing correctly. I removed the valve and the valve seat. But I could not determine the cause of the problem. I did remove a couple of small pieces of an old rubber washer/seal from around the valve seat. However I could not tell it was from a seal that is suppoed to be around the valve seat or some other area. I could not see any other problems. Am I missing a seal or is something blocking the valve from sealing properly? Any help is appreciated.

Try removing the diverter then block the tub spout and flush the shower body with thee diverter out.

This may remove debris that you could not see.

If this fails you may need to replace the diverter completely
