Question about GE WJRR4170E Top Load Washer
I have a GE model WJRR417G top loading washing machine, and it appears and sounds like the agitator is slipping while in use. I cannot figure out how to remove the agitator to inspect. I have taken the fabric softener resivour off, and now I am stuck. Any info would be a huge help.
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.

That is a good start!!
Under the F/S cup is a bolt.... down inside the agitator.
Once this is out, the agitator will lift out.

It is of a whirlpool, however it should be close!!
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Is the agitator actually slipping, or could you be hearing the lint filter chattering?

SOURCE: agitator is slipping
I have a different model, but my agitator came off with brute force. I used 2 allen wrenches in the slots on the side of the agitator to get leverage and then yanked until it came off. The problem is your air bell coupler.
