Replace the "O" rings that are behind the spout portion. You will have to remove the top of the faucet and pull up on the spout section. There will be a couple of "O" rings there. It is best to have Moen send the parts to you as locating the proper size "O" rings can be difficult.

SOURCE: handle won't stay up
I did the same thing recently, that is replaced the cartridge on my moen kitchen faucet to stop and leak, and I also have the same problem. I called moen back and they sent me another cartridge that was supposed to fit tighter, I suppose. I just put the new one in and it still wont stay up. I'm going to call moen one more time and then I guess I'll have to buy another faucet, but NOT moen!!! Good luck with yours.

First shut off water supply and remove cover on top of handle.They generally just snap in place so you can remove with screwdriver or knife point. Remove screw in center of handle and pull handle off. There is a copper retaining clip that holds cartridge in place. It has a small hole in the center on top that you can insert scratch awl or other pointed tool in and pull straight up to remove.You can try to grasp center stem of cartridge with pliers and pull up to remove. If the cartridge has not been changed for a long time it may be very hard to remove.
You are going to have to replace the entire cartridge so you should have one on hand and you can purchase a tool made especially to remove moen cartridges.Just follow direction that come with cartridge or tool and remove cartridge. I would use the brass cartridge as I have not had good results with the plastic ones. When you get old cartridge out I would use a small amount of faucet grease or petroleum jelly to lube o-rings and then reinstall new cartridge and clip,handle,screw,and cover. Good luck and thank you.
