Danielle Hartig: Does anyone know what model number this is? I need to buy a new handle and can’t find it. Thanks!

outwiththem: The 1200 cartridge label says it is only for the shower or bathtub. It is big thicker than the 1225 also. You only need the 1225.

Andrew Z: After spending too much time and $ attempting to change a cartridge I was finally able to dislodge the cartridge using a home made device. The cartridge puller I bought failed to do the job. Now it appears that one of the pieces of rubber from the old cartridge is lodged in the side water line. I can't see any way to extract that. I guess I'll have to replace the whole faucet with a new one rather than just the cartridge. It won't be a Moen. It's hard to imagine how this design could allow for such a problem.

Nancy Thompson: Great video...my tap is an old Moen..my problem is that I can't get the screw off under the decorative cap...it's stripped..how do I get it out?...please help

Bob Barker: My hot and cold are reversed. How do I fix that?

Brad Cole: Great video. As others mentioned, I will first look for the loose gray retention housing. Very helpful, thanks.

Jan Owens: My Moen bathroom faucet is single spout and brushed nickel (so I believe relatively new). The little plug (logo on the YT) is not red/blue, but just gray. On mine the grey plastic thing does not lift out at all as in the YT at 2:33. I've managed to remove the clip, using a telescopic mirror, and pushing the little prongs back with tiny tools (safety pins, swiss army knife blade, etc). I thought that would release the gray thing. The gray thing will wiggle a bit (maybe 3 degrees) but will not budge. I suspect that there's a lever or a screw somewhere holding it in.

If you have ANY ideas, please help. It's been torn apart for toooo long! thanks.

Earl Robinson: Super helpful DIY. Replaced three of the cartridges in my home bathroom faucets and all work perfectly now. Thank you so much, great service!

Shenxian Lao: There is a big problem in the video start from 4:39 to 4:50, when install the cartridge , DO NOT put the plastic in the up/down position, MUST install in the left right position, as the same position to unplug the old one, then turn 90 degree back to the up/down position. Otherwise there is a high probability that those two half round rubber pieces be squeezed into the water intake hole of the base and cause completely failure, I was trapped in this stage and damaged one cartridge, and take hours to take the rubber pieces out of the horizontal hole at the very bottom of the base.

Katherine Gomes: I can't set the screw out of the cartridge.. What could I do?

H Cunningham: Saved me so much time and effort. Thank you!! I also just needed to tighten the grey part; no new part needed.

philanna38: you should have told the viewers to close the sink stop or small parts could accidentally get dropped down the drain.

Rafael Girges: Thank you so much , it was a great help .

Andre Taylor: The instructions helped me with my Moen faucet. Thanks!

blayton884: I guess the old days of just changing a washer is over. I had a leak on my moen single handle faucet and did exactly what you did in your video. I changed the cartridge and everything is good. Very surprised how many parts but it all worked out>
thank you very much!

SoccerHelp.com video: Use the white plastic tool that comes with the new 1225 cartridge it to loosen the old one so it will hopefully slide out by pulling it with pliers - the white tool is a cap that fits on top of the old cartridge - loosen the old cartridge by using pliers to turn the white cap to the right and left and back 10 or 12 times (you will feel it getting easier to turn). I replaced 5 cartridges and on 2 of them the black plastic tore off. I had to use a Cartridge extraction tool to get 3 of them out. It seems like the more the faucet has been used, the more likely it is that it will be hard to pull out the old cartridge. If it is old (mine were about 14 years old) and won''t come out, buy the Moen Cartridge Puller for the 1225 cartridge, or the Danco brand - that was the only way I could get my 1225 cartridge out - it uses a screw action to pull out the cartridge. - I think if you just try to use brute force by pulling with pliers that you could damage the faucet. When you pull out the old cartridge, check it closely to see if all the black rubber is there - if some is missing, it is still inside the tube. When I pulled it out the black rubber had torn off and was still inside the faucet. Get a flashlight and look and clean out the gunk in the tube that the cartridge came out of. In my case, the rubber had gotten inside the holes on the right and left side of the tube where the hot and cold water come out of. I was able to get the rubber out of one hole by using needle nose pliers but to get it out of the other hole I had to get under the sink, disconnect the water supply line and push a 14" plastic tie up the supply line that is part of the faucet and use needle nose pliers to pull it thru - that got the black rubber out (I had to trim back the big connector part on the end of the plastic tie so it would go thru the line). I would also remove the aerator on the end of the faucet and run the plastic tie up into it and thru to be sure there isn't any gunk in there. I hope this helps you - ti took me a while to figure this out. These tips will help you. All 5 of my faucets work great now but in the future I will replace the cartridges about every 5 years - I got Moen cartridges from Amazon for $15. It is easy to replace them if they aren't stuck.

Tommi Stevens: It's MOEN not molten and it's a CARTRIDGE not cartidge . WTF dude?????????????

C. Singh: very helpful

Lenny Gemar: Thanks for publishing this video. That little captive metal doo-hickey was what had me flabbergasted but your video made clear how to remove it. Before I watched this I thought it would just be a little washer. Good job.

Laura D: thank you so much! I had a bit of a hard time getting the cartridge out as the rubber part was torn. Got it working perfect.
