SOURCE: GE washer won't agitate

I had this same problem with our GE top load washer.  I just needed to pull harder.  (Note: The agitator is held in place by about a dozen L-shaped clips in a ring around the agitator's base that will release more as you pull harder on the agitator.)  Everything from the base below the large fins on up comes out together.  Grab the shaft above the fins and pull slowly and hard. I had to take the entire tub out, lay it on the porch, put my feet inside of it, and pull the agitator assembly out.  I wasn't able to pull it out while it was still in the washer.  BE CAREFUL! DON'T **** IT OUT; that might injure your back; just pull out slowly and as hard as you can without hurting yourself.  I was able to get it out successfully, but I am currently stuck at removing the bell below the agitator.  Good luck!

Hi,
The agitator may be bound up. Remove the cap on it's top, than the nut or bolt which holds it inplace. Remove the entire agitator. Check for anything beneath it which may be causing the problem.
The belt may be too worn to grip the pulleys. Inspect it and replace it if there is any doubts. Easy to do and not to costly.
Also inspect the pulleys. They should rotate easily. If not, replacement may be the only opition.
Additional Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, downloadable repair and or owners manuals which may be available online.
Another possibility may be to search the manufacturers web site for a downloadable version of the owners or service manual. The file will be a pdf file opened with Adobe which also needs to be downloaded but worth having the Adobe once obtained.
Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Appliance part stores and dealers are listed in the phone book.

How to remove agitator


That is a very old GE model. There may be a screw under the agitator cap which needs to be pried off. Even with the screw removed the agitator usually rusts or bonds to the transmission top. GE had a special pulling tool that was a metal ring that fit over the agitator with 3 set screws in it that you had to screw into the outer plastic of the agitator. A gear puller was then needed to pull the agitator off. Don't know if its worth it considering the age of the machine.

I want to remove the Agitator. User Manual says 10mm bolt inside Agitator. But it doesn't Undo or Tighten- DOESN'T feel like its stripped -Could Drive shaft just be turning with bolt? Ron


You will have to hold the shaft underneath while you turn it, most likely it came a bit loose, but is rusted holding to he shaft, but no longer to the agitator.

I cannot remove the agitator from the shaft. I have removed the fabric softener cup and the bolt, and I've practically lifted up the entire washer pulling up on it, but still cannot remove it.


The fact of the matter is the spline on the drive shaft has most likely slightly corroded into the plastic agitator spline. Although the shaft is called stainless steel the grade is not 18/8 so it does contain some iron. This GROWING together might require s =special puller which I have made for myself in these situations. Otherwise if it is imperative that the agitator must be removed, then you will have to break it with difficulty because it is quite tough plastic.

How do I remove the agitator from LG top Load washer


the agitator is held by a bolt with a 7/16 drive nut located inside the middle of agitator from the top downward? however by ur description sounds like maybe u have bad bearing in the hub? the cam dogs in the agitator dont usually make any noise especially when bad they just dont allow the agitator to move or catch the groves to agitate. The grinding could also be coming from something stuck inside the tub or on its outside and thus is hitting the wall lining and makes a screeching scraping sound, Ive seen this several times, a bra wire, or loose coin or key, etc

How to remove agitater from maytag washer


Remove the top cap(s), there should be a nut under it that holds the agitator in place. Remove the nut and pull the agitator off. It may be tough to get it out if its never been removed, over time lots of soap, dirt etc.; gets in there and clogs up the splines. Try pouring boiling water onto the splines, if its hard to get off.

GE washer model WJRE555OH1WW - agitator free-wheels.


First make sure the inner part of the agitator is not brocken.

Remove the soap cap from the top of the agitator and with a torch, look down into the shaft. There is normally a nut which secures the agitator to the gearbox shaft. If the plastic around the nut is broken then the agitator moves freely.

There may not be a problem with your gear box, then and relatively cheap to replace agitator.

goodluck.

Grease leaking into drum under agitator cone


Remove the agitator cone. There will likely be a removable plastic piece with an O-ring. Oil could be leaking out of the O-ring into the washer, and water could be leaking into the bearings. If there is damage to the O-ring replace it, or if there is a bunch of schmag that is compromising the seal, clean it out, and re-install everything. This solved the problem in my washer; hopefully it works for you.
