Slip a belt or rope under the agitator and attach both ends to a thick handle, rod, or pipe. Yank up hard. Agitator should come right off. Remove the plastic upside down can shaped agitator drive spline, which is held on by one bolt. It should come right off, but sometimes you have to crack the plastic to remove them. If you cannot turn the small grooved metal shaft (that you can now see) with your fingers that's good, you can just replace the agitator drive with a new one, replace the agitator, and you are set to go. If you can turn the metal grooved shaft with your fingers, you are basically screwed, as you would need to replace the transmission. (which is not really cost effective on your out of warranty low end washer)

GE Washer wont drain. Wont agitate, does nothing. Washer is part of a stackable unit about 4-5 yrs old. Checked circuit breakers and electrical and water supply. What should I check? Are there fuses inside...


If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Here is a link to the part you need.

Washer wont drain....


try the lid switch with a screwdriver in the slot to see if it activates. Mine did the same thing, would agitate but not empty nor spin and it was the lid switch assembly--a 35.00 part that cost 150.00 to repair with a repairman!

Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it from the shaft. Check the agitator mounting cup underneath it is probably stripped out. It is a replaceable part.
If the agitator is difficult to pull up,use a old strong leather belt under the agitator and pull it off using the belt.

Ge top loader washer agitator does not work


To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.

MAGIC CHEF 5 YRS OLD WONT AGITATE


Ours started doing the very same thing. I took the top off and found that a mouse had chewed a hole in the vacuum tube. I replaced it with a 3/16" ID small engine gas line hose I bought at local implement dealer. Works like a charm.
