    Thanks for the advice, but I tried unscrewing the top cap and pulling, and it won't budge. I pulled very hard and tried using a belt to pull on it too. The model number is WWP 1180G and, i'm not sure how old it is, but it looks to be about 5-10 years. Any more advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

The top of the agitator should unscrew then pull off.

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.

My sleve is stuck in the spinning deal of my washer, how do i get it out?


Remove the rinse dispenser from the top of the agitator (spinning deal). Unscrew the agitator cap located on top of the agitator which is only hand tightened. Once the plastic agitator cap is removed from the top of the agitator you should see a screw which you will need a socket or an adjustable wrench to remove the screw. The agitator can now be removed by lifting strait up to free the sleeve. My only concern is how the sleeve became lodged under the agitator unless the tub became unbalanced from a heavy load. The other possibility could be the support for the tub is broken and needs to be replaced.

Clothes are caught under the agitator. How can I


Remove the top part of the agitator or the cap and you should find a bolt in the center. Remove the bolt and pull up on agitator.

98702 is not the model # of the machine. you should find the model # either on top of the machine or in the dryer door area around the frame.

The washer ate my favorite Christmas table cloth. It is new, rectangular and no stray edges or hangy things on it. I have gotten half of it out but it is ruined with little holes all over it. I guess it is...


There should be a cap located on top of the agitator. Pry off the cap and under that will be another cap. You can reach in and grap this cap and remove it. You can now see a bolt located deep inside the agitator. You will need a socket and long extention to remove this bolt.
With bolt removed reach to the bottom of the agitator and lift up on the agitator to remove.
After cleaning reinstall the agitator in the opposit way it was removed.
Sometimes if the fabric is fine or thin it can get cought under the agitator and tear.

Clothing stuck under the agitator


Hold the agitator steady and the very top end will screw off. If very old it will be stuck pretty tight, but do not break it. Then the agitator will lift straight up.

Can't get the fabric softner cap off


Don't feel foolish as im sure your not the only one this has happened to. to remove the agitator cap you must lift it off, apply slight twisting to it while your doing this. soap can gum it up so you may have to use a straight screwdriver to assist you. once you have done this, there should be EITHER a set screw for an allen key on the SIDE of the agitator OR a 3/8 hex screw in the center or the agitator. there is a spring under this screw so remove both and the agitator should lift staight up. use an old belt underneath the base of the agitator for better results. i hope this has answered your question.

Thanks
