I am new to DIY plumbing projects. I am replacing the hot water cartridge in my shower but can not get it installed correctly as no matter what I seem to do the hot water will not turn off at the faucet once I turn the hot water on in the basement. I am open to any and all suggestions.

You have the spring and washer in backwards. The spring goes into the valve body big side first and the washer goes over the spring.

He might want to put a new spring and washer in as the spring might of messed up the washer.
