After pulling the diverter up, there is only a thread of water coming out from the shower above. There is no water coming out from the bathtub sprout below. What happened? I have not used this shower for years, has the shower clogged up? I had cleaned the shower head and there is no change.

I also changed the faucet cartridge ( a Moen) in hope of correcting the problem, it did not.

I would appreciate any help.

With the shower head removed (not the arm) pull the diverter up. If you get water, even though you cleaned the shower head, there is something wrong with it. If you get no water, there is something blocking the flow going up to the shower head inside the valve. If this is the case, you may have to remove the valve and see whats blocking the flow, or install a new valve.

I have already removed the showerhead and replaced the cartridge, there is still a thin thread of water flowing out from the shower and NO water coming from the tub spout when the diverter is pulled up. Is replacing the valve the same as replacing the cartridge? Are they the same gizmo? Or do I need to replace anything else? Any help with directions on how to do it is much appreciated.
