You have to remove the "large" nut but you need to find a way to hold the faucet. Also, you will see a retaining washer that fits on the inside of that "large" nut. If you loosen this it will release some of the tention on it and hopefull make it easier to remove. Also, try using some lime remover on the unit will might alow the retaining nut to loosen. Good luck and if you can't get it off, contact Kohler, they have an 800 number and they can give you the info you will need depending on your model.

The handle has build up in it but should come off eventually. Sounds like a dry o-ring seal. You can purchase a kit for your model without having to replace the whole unit.
