SOURCE: 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..

Dear Whitworth,

please rate this solution if it meets ur needs, else choose fixya...

The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. If it doesn't function properly, your clothes won't be as clean as possible. If your agitator does not move, moves only in one direction or its movement is very weak, you will probably need to remove the agitator. Furthermore, in order to inspect the tub for leaks, the clutch assembly, the splines, or to remove the spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.

The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.
Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.
Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some Maytags may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.
If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.

If you remove the top cover to the agitator, inside you will see a I believe 9/16" nut.  Remove this to take the agitator off the shaft.

You do not have agitator dogs in your machine, yours is made by Frigidaire the agitator can be removed by removing the top of the agitator and remove the bolt. It is screwed directly into the transmission shaft, You want to check the belt to see if it is stretch out , just normal from use.

Rusted agitator mounting bolt in frigidaire washing machine


Pour some oil on it, engine oil or AT oil will do, kitchen oil too but, becareful of colors so after you done with the cleaning, wipe the excess. Remember, since the bolts are rusted they require extra strenght hence get a tool that completely covers the bolt or else you will grind the corners of the bolt.

Hope this helps

Washing machine will not spin in one direction


if you can turn the top of the agitator in both directions easily you have broken DOGS. Very cheap and easy to replace.

Pull the softener cup off, remove the small cap, take out the bolt, remove the top of the agitator you will see the broken pieces.
