shower diverter stem

What is the problem if a new diverter stem has been installed in the bathtub plumbing and you still have water coming from the tub faucet as well as the shower?

Shower diverter

Was there a washer missing?

The washer was not missing. It had been replaced 6mo previously, as well as the washers on the cold/hot water stems. Now that the diverter stem has been completely replaced, water continues to flow from both the shower and bath spigot. I've read other posts and replies indicate that the "valve" may need to be replaced. Is it in the wall? I have both baths facing each other w/whole tub/shower fiberglass units. Will I need to completely gut one bath in order to get to the pipes? Thanks
