Sounds like you need to repair/replace your diverter valve. Remove cap in handle with knife point. Remove handle screw and handle. If you can see and reach a hexagonal piece that is part of the valve body with a crescent wrench, do so. If you can't reach it, you will need to get a faucet socket wrench that will reach in and fit it (they come in different sizes, sometimes in a set). Remove valve, replace o-rings, washers, worn parts, or the whole valve. Just take it to a supply place and they can match it. Good Luck! Edit: Turn off the water first. LOL
