SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: several pieces of clothing stuck under agitator.

you can remove the agitator. there are 3 steps to this. 1.take off the top plastic part of the agitator. 2 remove secondary plastic piece from inside of agitator 3. there will be a 7/16 bolt inside and will be deep so you will need a long extension to reach it. hold the fins of the agitator and remove the bolt with a ratchet. once the bolt is out you will be able to lift the agitator up.

SOURCE: clothes stuck under the agitator

The clothes do not go under the plate they spin out of the top and fall over the side, this is because socks and underwear are either overloaded or spun out, this can be solved by reducing the load size and also spinning small clothing items on lower speeds, but the solution above is very helpful for getting the clothes out, but you will need a long pair of needle nose pliars to pull the clother out of the bottom of the tub. This problem presented itself by a "LD" error (long drain) Thanks tzweeb and I hope this helps others

SOURCE: clothes get caught under

Check the rubber gasket around the agitator is not worn. If it is get a replacement and insert it in snugy.

How to remove clothes stuck under agitator


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.

Clothes stuck under agitator


I would try to get clothes out, even if destroyed first. Otherwise,
there is a plastic cover cap on the top of the agitator. remove
by unscrewing or prying off. Hold down nut is exposed and remove
carefully, gently and with a ballanced pry up from underneath to raise agitator.

The agitater is not solid and clothes catch under the arms on the bottom and tangle and have even ripped. What can be done about to stop this? It seems like a design flaw to me.


It is not the best of designs.

Sometimes, clothes will get stuck at the bottom when the agitator dogs are worn out. Check to see if the upper part of the agitator is working during the wash cycle. If it isn't, the clothes stay at the bottom and just move horizontally, not from the bottom to the top. The clothes then get stuck in the gap between the lower agitator vaens and the bottom of the agitator. This is a very easy repair, you need only a socket wrench set (SAE) with an extension.

You can also buy the dogs (pawls) by themselves in a pack of four for about $5.

When I first saw this agitator set-up, I asked myself, 'What were they thinking of?'.

Good luck.

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.

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.
