How do i remove the agitator ??


Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.
Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some washer may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.
If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.

I need to remove agitator from Roper washer Model RAX7245AWO to replace gears on upper agitator.


There should be a cap on the top of the agitator. Pry off the cap and remove the inner plastic cap down inside the agitator. Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator and lift the agitator out of the washer. Separate the upper and lower half of the agitator and install the new gears. Reinstall everything in reverse.
Hope this is of some help.

Bottom part of agitator does not work, i replaced the clutch dogs two weeks ago for the top part. kenmore series 80


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

There are a number of Series 80 design washers. You'll need the actual model number to better check for the problem.

First, I'd remove the top agitator (as you've already done), then I'd remove the main agitator.

Under it you will see a clip and what Whirlpool calls a "washer". The "washer has two prongs, one fits into the main agitator shaft drive and the other fits in the lower agitator. If one or the other of the prongs is broken, the agitator most likely wont. I'd also look inside the main agitator to see if the ridges are broken off.

I'd then start the washer on it's smallest cycle and see if the main agitator shaft turns back and forth. If it doesn't and the washer goes through it's drain and spin cycles, the problem is likely in the transmission itself with what they call the agitate gear and / or agitate cams.

Please see the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDF document on installation, maintenance and operation of direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6?OpenView&Start=1

This is a Whirlpool document with parts lists for their commercial washers (basically the same as the consumer models)

If the problem is in the transmission, although it looks complicated, it really isn't that bad if you have a moderate level of mechanical ability.

How can I remove the agitator on a premier 510 model


Hi,
Before removing the agitator, unplug the washer to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.

I have a foul smell comming from my washer I want to try to take off the agitator and clean it How? :)


It depends on what model Maytag washer you have. If you have an Atlantis or Performa model Maytag you remove the agitator by, first, pulling the agitator cap and softener dispenser off. Locate the bolt on the center post and and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. If this is a Dependable Care model Maytag, there's a 1/4 inch screw located on the SIDE of the agitator about 3 quarters of the way down. Locate this screw and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. I hope this helps you.
