Question about Amana ALW480DA Top Load Washer
Most agitators also have an air gap cap underneath the fabric softener cap as well. This is to prevent water from rising inside the agitator and getting to the drum bearings. Look closely under the fabric softener cap to see if there is another cap that you might have to remove. You can usually use a small flat tip screwdriver to lift the cap off. You will need a socket (with extender) and ratchet to reach the mounting bolt. As you loosen the bolt, you will need to hold on to the base of the agitator at the same time to keep it from turning. Now, not knowing what your agitator looks like, it may or may not have this set up (just a thought for you try). If there is no mounting bolt of any kind as you say, the type of agitator you may have is held on by plastic grips that snap on to a mounting hub under the base. Unfortunately there is no easy way I know of besides lifting straight out. You may have to rock it side to side a little while pulling up to get the clips to release. Normally, the problem encountered with this type of agitator is the clips wear out and no longer grip and it keeps falling off. Why do you need to remove the agitator? Just wondering because you didn't mention any problems. Good luck to you. I hope this helps.
