Question about Moen Plumbing
I have replaced many of these but this one in the shower refuses to turn right or left with the white plastic tool provided by moen to brake it loose. It will not pull out either. I assume the flat side washers are locked in place on the cartridge. I do not want to apply excessive force for fear of damaging the cartridge or faucet. I know there is a moen faucet puller available at Home Depot. Is this the answer and can I just twist the handle until it breaks loose. In the past when I applied force to remove the cartridge much of the flat side washers are left jammed in the hot and cold ports of the faucet. These are extremely hard to remove. Any suggestions. My plumber wants $125.00 for this repair which I hate to pay as the washer kits are free from Moen.com
You will need a puller more then likely but what you can try is a little wd-40 lubricating spray
