String caught between the upper and ;ower half of the agitiator


Remove the agitator and clear the string. Agitators can be hard to remove, but they will come off. Usually have a nut under the top cap that holds them down then pushed down onto splines.

The bottom part of the agitator seems stuck. It won't spin during a normal wash cycle and it won't budge when I try to move it when it is not on.


Small garments can get caught under the bottom agitator. Disconnect power then remove the agitator cap to expose the agitator bolt. Using a small flat-head screw driver, insert it between the agitator and the cap then pry the cap off the agitator. Remove the barrier cap if present then remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft using a 7/16" socket wrench with extension. Once the stud and seal are removed, lift the agitator off the shaft. You may need and extra shear of force when pulling the agitator off the shaft.

Apron string caught under the rod the agitator sits on. How do I take it off to remove the apron string


Is it a top loader if it is.

You can remove the agitator.
Remove the dispenser pops out, you might need a flat screw driver. After that remove the cover in the agitator.
There should be a bolt. remove the bolt and now you can pull out the agitator.

Now you can get the apron string right out.

Caught string


OK you can remove thr tumbler with a Number 20 Torx driver. The FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual does not call out the torx driver size. Page 37 of the SM will take you thru the process. Let us know if you have any questions. Rich

Drawstring tangled under agitator on an older GE washing machine.


You should be able to unscrew the top cap of the agitator ( may be left hand thread ) and lift off the agitator once the cap is off... They sometimes stick so you may have to muscle it to remove that cap..once lifted off..you should be able to untangle the string that is caught..

Object caught beneath the adigator


Remove the fabric softener by pulling and pushing to one side.
Once removed, there will be a half inch bolt that holds the agitator to the transmission shaft. Loosen the bolt and the agitator will lift off.
Older Hoovers have a set screw near the middle of the agitator.

If you need further assistance, let me know

I have a pant leg caught under the agitator I cannot budge it. What can I do? I need help.


Check on the top of the agitator for a cap to uncover a screw or bolt to remove the agitator, if not you may need to unsrew part of the top of the agitator.
Either way if you can remove what is attaching the agitator, pull it up and out, then the pants should come out.
