Item caught under agitator


The top of the washer pulls up. IT may be hard to do. This will expose the whole drum so that you can see around it. If you need to remove the agitator, there is a cap on the top of the center, take it off and you should see a nut and some lock washers, Remove the nut and lift the agitator out.

Clothing stuck under the agitator


Hold the agitator steady and the very top end will screw off. If very old it will be stuck pretty tight, but do not break it. Then the agitator will lift straight up.

Clothing stuck under agitator


The agitator pops off. You will need to use a flat head screw driver or something short enough to get in the tub and under the agitator and it will pop off. They are on there pretty good so it will take some work

Clothes stuck under the agitator


you really have clothes stuck under the "wash plate" it has almost zero clearance and would be very hard to get something stuck under the wash plate.
if you do have something stuck, then remove the 1 1/2 inch cap in the center of the plate, then a 7/16th bolt that holds the plate down. then grab the wash plate and lift up to remove it.
next time check your pockets and dont let this happen again, it could ruin the outertub by cutting a hole thru it and then leaking.

Need to remove agitator


Check on the side of the agitator on the lower half for a small set screw. It's hard to see but you can feel it. remove this screw and the agitator should come out.

Apron caught under wringer


Hi Karen,
That is a real pain when that happens, but let me see if I can help.
First on the top of the agitator or wringer you will see a small cover. You will need to pop that off to reveal the screw hidden underneath. Remove the screw and then the agitator will pull upward and off. The agitator on the hotpoint washing machine is really hard to pull off so you will really have to pull. When the agitator comes loose you will ofter be pulling so hard that you could hurt your arm on the top of the tub so be extra careful or get some guy to get hurt for you. Once removed I am sure the apron can be easily removed and all will be well again. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me. Have a nice day.

Need to remove Agitator


On a MAV6000, you should be able to pop off the fabric softner cap, remove the fabric softner cup underneath, and finally remove the bolt underneath to lift up the agitator. (rocking the cap back and forth is usually the best method)
