Yes, there should be a washer. It is probably a 15mm tap connector washer.
It is probably attached to the old valve. You should get a new one anyway,
as the old one will be manked.
Be very careful with metal tap connectors on plastic tails, it is
exceptionally easy to cross thread.

I'll get another washer then take it apart again.
I noticed as i was connecting the tap connector on that it was starting
to go on cross threaded, i didn't tighten it much before i realised that
was the case though.
thinking about it i hope that's not the cause of the leak otherwise i'll
be buying another complete unit again :-(
No, what you need is a reddish fibre washer about 1.5mm thick and 2mm wide,
15mm inside diameter. A good ironmongers etc should have them (or BES)
Load dropped, paperwork completed: job done.
