After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

The little wrench tightens the tension ring that fits on the inside of the retaining nut right under the handle. You fit the little "arms" in the notches.

This happened to me just tonight, "slam" and all on a Delta 470. The gasket that leads to the pull-out hose corroded and finally slipped free, lodging itself in the hose. Just pull off the hose by removing the plastic clip, then pulling on the hose with a good tug, it should come free. The destroyed gasket was sitting right in the connector in a perfect spot to block the water any time it was turned on. This particular gasket is a "second layer of defense" gasket, but even though the faucet probably won't drip without it, you should probably still replace it.

Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.
Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.
That should give you access to the washers you need to change.
