I got the strap of my swimsuit stuck under the agitator of my Hotpoint washing machine. I removed the top layer of the agitator, but don't know how to get under the part beneath it.


With the first part of the agitator off you now have to remove another cap off the top of what you now see. Under that will be a bolt that holds the whole bottom of the agitator on.

I have an old hotpoint washing machine that no longer agitates but spins


if it is 20+ years old the spline inside the top of the agitator is likely stripped. it can be replaced or you can get a complete new agitator for around $50. great old machines. if you take off the cap at the top of the agitator and there is no bolt, then you can just pull the agitator off. it will likely be hard to remove, stuck with built up soap scum. use a leather belt under the bottom and pull straight up and keep you chin out of the way.

A sweatshirt cord is wrapped around my HotPoint top load washing machine. The machine is 18 years old. Can I pull off the agitator to retreive the string?


If it's wrapped around up underneath the agitator you can.

Have you tried just figuring out which way it was wrapped?

Keep a can of WD-40 handy.

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 ****.

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..

Two types of Hotpoints had two different ways of removing the agitator. One had a pop off top that when you removed it, you can remove the center bolt, the remove the agitator. Another one you had to put your fingers under the agitator and pull straight up to unclip the agitator. Good Luck!!! Jim
