Hello, the agitator seems to work (and turn) well at the bottom but it seems stuck at the top (hardly turns. What can I do? Thanks, Isa


If it has a fabric softener dispenser in the top, it is most likely a waxy buildup from the lanolin in the softener. Disassemble and clean.

Hi

It seems that something is stuck and you'll have to remove the agitator to clean it. If this is an old style washer, then it should have a bolt under the cap that must be removed to remove the agitator, then grab hold of the agitator and lift up. If it's a not too old then the agitator just pulls out, remove cap, if no bolt, just grab hold and lift it up hard... see the picture. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Ge whdrr418e4ww my agitator seems to have come loose


One stupid question on trying to get access to the nut to remove the agitator shaft. After I removed the fabric softener dispenser there appears to be a plastic cap between. I've tried everything I can to remove this piece of plastic so i can get access to bolt.. Am I missing something obvious?

KitchenAid Stylemaster 622784 cleaning the fabric softener dispenser. I can't get the fabric softener apart to clean it. I don't have a manual. I bought it, used, with no manual. Suggestions?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Remove the dispenser and spray with white vinegar. Then spray the agitator with it too. You can pretty much wipe it right out. Vinegar dissolves softener very quickly. The dispenser just wash out with warm water after the vinegar sits on it for a minute, and you hardly have to wipe at it at all. try adding bleach to the dispenser and clean it with a small brush.

The dispenser will pull off from the agitator and you can run hot water in it from the sink. The agitator is not as easy but has a 1/2" bolt holding it to the shaft. remove the bolt and pull up. but you can clean the whole washer with a cup of bleach and that will also clean the agitator. Now run a full tub of hot water and then add a cup of bleach with no soap. After the washer has filled up, then add another gallon of hot water and that will help to rinse out the residues that cause odors. then after that dont use too much soap and you wont have residue build up. Only use the smallest amount of soap that the cup has marked in it.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

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)
