In some cases I have had to cut the handles off. But before we go that far, check for any allen type screws int the handle, If the is a screw through the top you can drill it out, since you are replacing the valve anyway.

    Moen two handle kitchen faucet cannot remove cartridge


    I am not familiar with that particular model but on most moens there is a type of clip that looks somewhat like a washer in the shape of a horseshoe..... it slides into a groove in the stem of the faucet....... take a wire brush and wd 40 and clean the area ( i am assuming you have removed the faucet handle and crown btw turn water off under sink hot and cold) take a jewlers screw driver and try to slide down between the main part of the faucet and the cartridge.. you can also use a needle nose pliars to get it out then take pliars or vice grips and grab stem and pull out

    Moen shower/tub faucet


    hi... yes that's a very common issue with moen "cartridges" -- it's very simple to fix..... grasp the handle and give it a gentle tug upwards when the water is on... if it retracts again, pull the handle out again and tug again but this time a bit harder. Not sure what causes this on new cartridges but it will fix your issue.
