Hold the bottom part of the Agitator,(The part that you are talking about),Undo the very top part in an anti-clockwise direction and it will come right off.Use a wrench to remove the nut on the top of the agitator and then lift it right out,you may need to move it from right to left.You will now be able to remove the necklace.Replace the Agitator the reverse of removal.

I have a Maytag MAV6200AWW Atlantis Washer. A necklace got caught in one of the bottom holes of the plastic tub - It must be knotted on the other side, as I can not pull it through. I do not want to break...


There is no "simple" way. Under the part with the holes is the tub without holes that holds the water in. If the neclace breaks it will go to the drain pump and most likely be blown out the drain. However you can try putting a few drops of vegetable oil on the necklace allowing it to go down below, and wiggle it around in an effort to untangle it.

Fischer & Paykel Excellence 6.5 1999 model Neclace has gone through wash and drain holes. Making terrible grinding noise. need instructions how to take off cover to find neclace.


Hi just read your posting.Now try this.Select a spin cycle and push the start button.Do you hear the noise straight away after the button is pushed or do you hear the noise later when the machine is starting to turn the bowl?The reason I ask you this is because as soon as you push the start button the drain pump will activate and then a couple of minutes later the bowl will start to turn.So if the noise starts straight away then the necklace is in your pump and if the noise starts later it is stuck to the bowl.Please reply with the additional information and I will guide you throe the removal of the necklace.Looking forward to your reply.

Hi , my washing machine recently started not spinnig as good as it use to. The clothes are still soaked. I heard it could be the coupler, but turned it upsidedown and looke at it myself and it looked fine....


Probably your transmission starting to go out.  Check to see is there is a ring of oil around your casing, or oil leaking out under the machine.  If there is replace the transmission.  Check to see how easy it is to rotate the basket.  Sometimes things get stuck between the tub and the basket.

Stops in the middle of rinsing...leaves some water at bottom-


Calypso...The pumps fail often. They have redisigned one that theres not as many problems with, but if you still have the original, this is deffinatly the problem. As far as clothes getting stuck, the U-Joints wear out and cause too much play allowing things to get stuck. Total for this repair parts + labor will usually run about 500-600. There was a class action lawsuit for this machine and they no longer make it.

It eats my clothes


I would remove the agitator, checking to see whether the bolt that holds it to the drive shaft is securely tightened. If it is tight I would then check the agitator for a serial number, usually molded directly into the plastic agitator on the inside bottom. Use the internet to determine if the part is the correct agitator for your specific model of machine. I have seen the wrong agitator installed on machines before and it can do a number on clothes, especially sweaters.

Ticking/chirping sound during slow spin


it will more than likely be a bra wire stuck between inner and outer drum it will only sound when clothing is in it due to the weight of clothing and water so it wont be heard with just water init or by pushing it around by hand only thing u can really do is eiether strip it yourself or by getting an engineer in but what i would do is leave it after a while it will dislodge itself and go into the pipe underneath the washer in the pipe that is in the middle of the drum check this when the sound stops love
