Make sure you replaced the actual washers at the bottom of the stem & in the correct size.also, before you put the stem back in,make sure it's all the way in the open position( when installed,but before you turn the water on,you can put in the close position. the washer will then hit the seat & not allow water to run until you turn it on)

Cartage(s) may be either backwards or switched with each other.
Other possibilities the spring got out of place.

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.

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.

if the pressure is good with the head off then you can probably get a new head for it u shouldn't have to change the cartrige. it sounds like the head is clogged so plastic pieces in the head to help save water "water savers" it is hard to clean them i would try changing the head u should be able to find on for a moen, u buy for looks u buy it for life. take the old head with u when u go to buy a new one so they can match it up to the right one.if you can't find it and a lowes or home deptm try a plumbing supply house

Sounds like you might have the rubber cup seals installed upside down? The spring goes int he body first, then the cup seal goes over and on top of the spring.

try and pull the cartridge out and look in there with a flash light and make sure there isn't any think lodged in the hot water side of the faucet, you might even want to leave the cartridge out and turn the water back on to try and flush it out. alot of times rubber from the old cartridge gets stuck in there as you are pulling the old one out especially if it's stuck in there good
