most ge washers you just get ya fingers under the bottom and jerk up hard they have a plastic piece under them that has to be replaced from time to time its no big deal

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..

The ge wcxr1070t uses a coupling under the agitator . There is a cap on the top pop it off and remove the screw if you see one , otherwise just pull up , the coupling is under the agitator check to see if it is stripped . dr fixit in the repair service directory will have it if bad

IF the agitator is like the ones in the older models, it will just pull straight up and off of the transmission shaft.
Inside the agitator there is a rubber splined insert with an aluminum center. The soft aluminum strips out causing the grinding sound. Very common to happen.
We used to use a special puller to remove that part and then press a new one back in.
Voila! Repaired agitator!!
Most any appliance parts store should be able to look up your model # and tell you if that agitator can be resplined.

Tips for a great answer:
1 First you must determine the brand of washing machine you have.
Maytag and Admiral washers are very similar to remove. General Electric, (GE) is different, To remove a GE agitator simply pull upwards very hard, GE agitators snap on. Be careful not to pop it into your mouth, that really hurts.

1- First you must determine the brand of washing machine you have. 2- To remove agitator on a whirlpool washer, remove top cap from agitator, Next you will find a translucent cap, remove this with your pliers. Then you will see a 3/8 inch nut, Back this nut out and you can then remove the agitator. Be Careful though, inside the agitator where the bolt has been removed is a white piece of plastic that holds the "dog ears". These dog ears are what lets the agitator move in one direction and locks when the transmission moves back in the other direction.

For whirlpool place bolt into dog ear guide, and set down on top of transmission post and tighten, be careful that dog ears, do not get out of alignment. That's it.
