Hello pamcclendon and welcome to the Community.

 

Below you will see the order of a toilet tank bolt set.  DO NOT use a metal washer directly under the bolt head inside the tank as this will cause a leak.

  1. Bolt Head
  2. Rubber Washer
  3. Toilet Tank
  4. Metal Washer (Optional, use only if there is a gap between the tank and the bowl)
  5. Thin Metal Hex Nut (Optional, use only if there is a gap between the tank and the bowl)
  6. Toilet Bowl
  7. Rubber Washer
  8. Metal Washer
  9. Metal Hex Nut

 

 

 

If you may have a defective rubber washer.  You may have to replace that bolt set.  Click on Resolving leaks at the Tank Bolts.

 

Thanks for your inquiry.
