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.

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.

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.

Adgitator removal


Just follow these steps:

1. Remove the center dispenser from the top of the agitator. It should just pop off.
2. Locate the white plastic cap underneath and pull straight up to remove.
3. Locate the agitator bolt underneath and remove using a socket and ratchet (can't remember the size). Hold the agitator still with one hand in order to loosen the bolt.
4. With the bolt removed, grasp the agitator by the bottom flanges and pull straight up. It should lift off the center post.

NOTE: Sometimes these agitators will stick due to years of detergent accumulation. You may have to wobble it back and forth to get it loose.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

At the top of the agitator has a cap get a flat screw driver and pry up and turn. When it comes off there is a nut you have to take off.Then pull up on the agitator..

Series 70 prob: Recently started wrapping clothes around agitator


some fabrics are known to do that you have on wrong cycle setting there should be a setting for delicates and clothing and blankets and things when loaded to close to agitator will attract each other together so its wise when loading machine load in a circle leveled out till desired fullness away from agitator they shouldnt attract as much
