A t-shirt is stuck under agitator/spinner thing. How do I lift off the spin assembly?

Somehow a cotton t-shirt is wound around the spinner thing. I can't pull it out (I can get pieces but then the rest of it might get stuck under). Can I lift off the cneter spin thing and pull out the fabric? thanks!!!

Yes, remove the softener dispenser at the top of the agitator and there is a bolt there that is holding the agitator assembly. if you remove that bolt, the whole piece can be pull out and you can remove the clothe that was stuck in there.

1
Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.
2
Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.
3
Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.
4
Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.
5
Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.
6
Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

The bottom part of the agitator seems stuck. It won't spin during a normal wash cycle and it won't budge when I try to move it when it is not on.


Small garments can get caught under the bottom agitator. Disconnect power then remove the agitator cap to expose the agitator bolt. Using a small flat-head screw driver, insert it between the agitator and the cap then pry the cap off the agitator. Remove the barrier cap if present then remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft using a 7/16" socket wrench with extension. Once the stud and seal are removed, lift the agitator off the shaft. You may need and extra shear of force when pulling the agitator off the shaft.

Clothing stuck under the agitator


Hold the agitator steady and the very top end will screw off. If very old it will be stuck pretty tight, but do not break it. Then the agitator will lift straight up.

Usually on these machines on the very top of the agitator is a snap-on lid, usually for adding bleach or fabric softener. Unsnap this lid and lift from the top of the agitator. Look down the hole and you should see some kind of nut or screw. Remove this item (make note as to how tight it is JUST AFTER it breaks free). Once this is removed, you should be able to lift the agitator out of the machine. Remove your shirt, and replace the agitator. Replace the nut or screw previously removed, and tighten approximately as tight as it was when removed. Don't over tighten. Replace snap-on lid.

With the unit apart, now might be a good time to clean any accumulated dirt or other foreign material.

Removing the Agitator on a G157 Hotpoint washing machine


Some models have a bolt towards the bottom of the outside of the agitator, depending on model. If it has one, take out out and you'll have to yank on it VERY hard to get of off (you'll most likely lift the machine off of the ground a few times in the process!)

If the bolt isn't there, its under the top cap of the agitator "somewhere". You'll still have to yank up on the silly thing to get it off after taking the bolt out.

Good luck!
