Just a newbee. Not sure how to submit new post, so I have started from here.
All I am wanting to know, is how to remove the agitator from inside the bowl so I can clean it out.
Hope someone can help!
Thank you for your time.
I have the same washer and the paint started to flake from the bottom of the bowl. Rust under the baked enamel made it lift. I peeled the loose paint then applied rust converter and a zinc paint. This patch is still ok after 12 months but my wife is complaining about paint flakes and rust on some clothes. In my opinion, the only way to remove the agitator is to undo the nuts retaining the shaft from the inside. I guess I will find patches of rust under the agitator and depending on how big and deep they are will determine if I replace the machine or patch the rust.

Hi There I have looked up your problem that you are having. Read this and let me know how it goes. Hope this gets you in the right direction. If your washer is overfilling, check these:Water-inlet valveWater-level switchWater-inlet valveA
defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to
shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If
this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In
time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need
to replace the valve.Water-level switchA
defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it
can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch
senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm
device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the
bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub
increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the
pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off
the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can
either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level
switch.\ Thank you for writing to fix ya. Best Regards Richard
Hey, have you looked at the belt going from the motor to the drum? I am currently trying to make ours start spinning again too, and the problem is that the belt keeps dropping off, I am just trying to find out the size of the belt so I can go buy a new one. If this is your problem, it should be reasonably cheap to fix, just look up an (electrical) appliance spares shop in the yellow pages. I think the size I am looking for is a Z550 or Z600.
Inserted flexible piece of thin wire into hose connectioin on outside
of bowl and vigoursly wriggled it around - replaced hose and bingo
water fills and shuts off and machine operates correctly. Seems like
the hose connection was blocked, not a very scientific repair method
but seems to have worked. Thanks.
