Plumbing Questions? Ask a Plumber for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! This is James, I'm a Plumbing Technician with over 10 years of experience, and I'll be assisting you today
Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.How old is the hot water tap?
The leak from the handle is likely to suggest the valve has perished and needs replaced, do you know the model of tap fitted?
Without the model of tap I can't advise the exact part, once you get home if you are still not sure on the model you can send a picture to *****@******.*** and they will identify it for you.
Where you know the model of tap you can call 0161(###) ###-####and they can give you a quote for parts or repair if you do not want to replace the cartridge \ valve yourself.
It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you have any follow up questions then please let me know.
