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..

Hi

If you have already tested the lid switch assembly and it is fine then the issue is with the motor coupler that is bad and should be replaced. Please check these videos that will help you:




Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Clothing gets caught under the agitator wings like sleeves on shirts, strings on clothing ie hooded sweatshirts.


This is something that happens with most top-load washing machines. As long as the agitator has wings, stuff will get under them. That is one reason that front-load machines are becoming more popular.

String caught between the upper and ;ower half of the agitiator


Remove the agitator and clear the string. Agitators can be hard to remove, but they will come off. Usually have a nut under the top cap that holds them down then pushed down onto splines.

Clothes stuck under the agitator


I have the same problem with clothing getting trapped under the agitator. Strings from Hoodies, apron strings, bra straps be caught under it all the time. There is a gab between the agitator and the tub. I have owned the machine for about 3 months, I like it in all other respects but this is crazy!! I have never had a machine that did this. GE needs to address this and fix this issue. It is NOT a matter of making sure your pockets are empty before washing, anything that is thin such as a strap or a string gets caught!! I would think twice about buying this machine if you are looking to purchase it. I don't think this machine will last as long as my others, and I don't think I would recommend this machine due to this very annoying issue.

Apron string caught under the rod the agitator sits on. How do I take it off to remove the apron string


Is it a top loader if it is.

You can remove the agitator.
Remove the dispenser pops out, you might need a flat screw driver. After that remove the cover in the agitator.
There should be a bolt. remove the bolt and now you can pull out the agitator.

Now you can get the apron string right out.

Apron caught under wringer


Hi Karen,
That is a real pain when that happens, but let me see if I can help.
First on the top of the agitator or wringer you will see a small cover. You will need to pop that off to reveal the screw hidden underneath. Remove the screw and then the agitator will pull upward and off. The agitator on the hotpoint washing machine is really hard to pull off so you will really have to pull. When the agitator comes loose you will ofter be pulling so hard that you could hurt your arm on the top of the tub so be extra careful or get some guy to get hurt for you. Once removed I am sure the apron can be easily removed and all will be well again. Good luck to you and please dont forget to rate me. Have a nice day.
