NEED HELP IN REMOVING AGITOR ON HOT POINT TOP LOAD WASHER.REMOVED TOP CAP NOTHING UNDER IT TO UNSREW OR RELEASE. IS THERE ANOTHER WAY. SEARSDIRECT WAS OF NO HELP
If anyone is still doing this.. i had a hotpoint model type vbxr1060. It had just a cap on agitator no extra bolts and used two hammers to get underneath the base creating leverage..
Work both hammers in (using the nail puller side) as far as possible towards the center of the agitator on opposing sides and use them to pull up and slightly outwards towards the sides of the basin. When you get it off you will see why this works as the agitator's base has mini clips that grasp the base of the air bell housing. hope this tip helps someone.

How old is this washer??? if its a 15-20 yr old hotpoint washer, the only thing holding it on is 15-20 yrs of wanting to be there. fingers under the sides and PULLLLLLLLLL: they do make an ajitator puller, its a rubber bladder that slides under the agitator and fills with water to POP it off. its no joke its a bear to come off!!!!!!!

Remove the rinse dispenser from the top of the agitator (spinning deal). Unscrew the agitator cap located on top of the agitator which is only hand tightened. Once the plastic agitator cap is removed from the top of the agitator you should see a screw which you will need a socket or an adjustable wrench to remove the screw. The agitator can now be removed by lifting strait up to free the sleeve. My only concern is how the sleeve became lodged under the agitator unless the tub became unbalanced from a heavy load. The other possibility could be the support for the tub is broken and needs to be replaced.
