Diverter Just Stopped Working

The diverter on my tub just stopped working. Water runs from the faucet fine. When the diverter is engaged, the water stops running from the faucet as it should, but the water never makes it out of the shower head. Acts like something is blocking its passage up to the shower head. It was working fine and then 5mins later, it started acting like this. Any suggestions? I just replaced the stems a couple months ago. Thanks.

My sympathies

Wow, must be a bad week for diverters. Mine stopped as well although I get water out of the shower. Problem is I can't get the diverter to engage and therefore I get water out of the shower AND faucet. I posted here seceral days ago and have yet to find anyr real help. Let me know if you find anything.

Fixed

The screw that holds the plastic washer on the back of the diverter had come unscrewed. Those two pieces were blocking the water passage way up to the shower head. Easy fix.

Fixed, part 2

Funny, I took a closer look at mine this morning. The nylon washer had come off. What I thought was part of the pipe fixture was part of the diverter. Removed the old washer from the pipe, inserted the new diverter, problem solved.

Just like the "help" said to do, huh?
