Outdoor faucet

If when you turn on the water, it comes out the handle, but doesnt drip otherwise. Need to replace whole thing, or just washer. Thanks in advance.

Turn the water to it off and take it apart. sounds like the washer is bad can also have to tighten the top packing nut some also. If the water runs ok and some comes out the stem. With the water running can you tighten the nut there on the stem some ? if its that kind

Then can be one where you just need a new O ring for the stem there.
