yes the cartridge should pull straight out.
the moen puller has a screw that screws into the screw hole that the handle used to be in, and an outside nut sit tight on the shower valve body.
tighetening the outside nut pulls the cartridge out much like a steering wheel puller but without the hammering action.
very cool little tool, there is also one that works on the inside of the moen cartridges if the center piece is broken..even more expensive!
i think the last time I checked they were 30-$40.
if you are able to get the cartridge out and dont see any obviuos debris, you may want to turn the water main on for just a second..(with the shower doors shut of course!
to blow any debris from the valve body.
