Sonny G: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I removed the cartridge step by step and it was easy to follow, especially the 180 twist of the cartridge re: hot and cold water. I appreciate your assistance!
Scott Aston: Thanks! This worked like a charm!
Robert McCully: You may want to mention to close the sink drain stopper before you start removing screws, nuts, and other parts so that they won't go down the drain if and when you drop them into the sink. Probably not enough force to actually go all the way, but it will save time by not having to remove the u-turn portion of the drainage pipe under the sink looking for what you dropped. I speak from an annoying experience. Great video otherwise.
Taymor Abbasi: Worked perfectly! Video is easy to follow. Also Moen products have a lifetime warranty. Take the cartridge to your Home Depot for a free replacement. Thanks for the help!
Cliff Groth: I really appreciated this vid! "DIY Tinker. Same faucet in my bathroom too, just purchased a 1225 from Home Depot just under $20. Mine was also a clear plastic/brass valve. Thanks for saving me a couple "Hundred dollars!!!" in a plumber call.
Chad Pavlis: I had this exact problem and thought it was the cartridge. Nope. It was that grey threaded plastic ring which had either loosened over time or wasn't installed correctly from the factory. Tightened it back onto the white threaded piece, put it all back together, turned on the water, and viola, no leak. I wonder if DIY Tinker could have gotten away with just rethreading that piece seeing as how his was completely unthreaded. At least mine still was holding on by a turn or two. Thanks for posting this DIY Tinker. It helped me resolve my issue without paying a dime. Now I can put off remodeling the bathroom for another 6 months!
DeepSouthPepe: Thanks so much! That's my exact faucet.
dyip32: thank you for the walk through. this is the exact model faucets I have in my wash rooms.
daniel hadida: thank you for your help ...worked really well.
Susan Dornan: Something not mentioned here...you have to watch how you put cartridge in or your hot and cold will be reversed
smoideen: thanks a billion! two of my moen 4600 faucets were leaking. i didn't need to replace the cartridge. just tightened the gray ring.
Thomas Scott: Good information. If you have problems pulling out the insert just go get a puller at Lowes or Home Depot
Dan Daly: Very helpful video. Thank you. Important to read the comments posted below--many additional, valuable tips. Very important to note in the video that the gray plastic collar is totally loose and he just lifts it out. In fact this piece screws in. When you try to remove it you must unscrew it! Quite possible that the faucet in the video was leaking because this was not screwed in firmly.
Gary Gable: Tried, but I could not get the cartridge out. Any ideas?
Everything home repair: thank you
sheri powell: Thanks for the video..I finally did it!!!!
sheri powell: Help...half way through. Can not get cartridge out!!!
