Leaking Washing Machine Taps

Plastic lever washing machine taps that rarely if ever get used can be a problem when you come to have a new washing machine fitted as the taps will not shut off properly.  Usually it is the plastic levers that are the trouble as the plastic does not have the strength to turn the tap and becomes damaged in the attempt.  The answer is to remove the lever and with an adjustable spanner on the spindle that held the lever carefully close the valve.
