Re: Remove the agitator
The agitator is actually pressed on without mechanical fasteners . Grab the bottom of the agitator firmly on each side. Pull up with a quick, hard **** (careful not to hit your face). If this does not work, wrap a belt under the agitator. Grab the belt firmly and pull up with a quick, hard ****.

the agitator should pull straight up, you may have to twist it back and forth as you pull upward. when you put it back on make sure its all the way down and in place, this may be the reason your clothes are getting stuck under it.
IF THIS IS AN OLDER UNIT THE AGITATOR WILL BE SEIZED TO THE SHAFT ODDS OF GETTING THE AGITATOR OFF ARE VERY SLIM. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE NUT UNDER THE CAP IS SEIZED ALSO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE THE CAP AND THEN USE WRENCHES TO REMOVE THE NUT
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
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.
Harkins...you model looks like a one piece agitator according to the model number. Pop the cap off the agitator, you will see a bolt under there. Using a socket wrench remove the bolt and the agitator will lift up. If you have a fab dispensor on top, just pop it off. Catriver...post back.
