the splash plate that controlsletting the water out of the tub will not stay down to let the water out.the lever keeps going to the posotion that holds the water in.i took the splash plate off and tried to loosen the screw on it hoping that this would help but it didn't.i hope you know what i am refering to.you know the lever that hold water in or lets it out. it will only stay up it will not stay down to let the water out. what can i do to fix it? so i can stop sitting and holding it down to let the water out of the tub?

Replace the cover plate, there is a cotter pin that holds the plunger on to the trip lever plate, remove this to take the plate off, and put the new one on.

This will fix the problem.
