Remove the top of the washer?

I want to replace the agitator. I need to "lift" the top of the washer in order to remove the round agitator. I don't see any clips to unhook, in order to lift the top on the back hinges.

Pull forward and pull up on the front to swing it( if you got all the screws out) , this usually works for most washers

PAV2300 agitator bolt keeps coming loose


Loctite sounds the order of the day. Don't overtighten once the thread lock is in place and allow to cure before using machine.

I received information about how to fix my agitator not working on my GE washer. But now I need info on how to get to the agitator. My model WWA8955 is different from any other GE top loading washers...


Oops sorry about that my fault for not searching parts on your model befroe answering. What i wrote about is what ge has made for the past 10 years or so your washer is very old!
to remove that agitator which doesnt use that part i talked about (sorry) so what you do it remove the bolt from top of inner agaitator and pull that agaitaor off. ITs been on thier for 15 or more years and will take some tugging perhaps and if lucky will come out right away after bolt removed. on the inside of the top of that inner agitator will be a coupler that works similar to the one if the vid. i showed you. that coupler needs to be knocked out and replace the spline coupler. Need to check though if center shaft of transmission is stripped before ordering and replacing that spline if the transmission is ground down the transmission would need to be replaced however since its so old the part is no longer available..
The part number for that spilne is WH1X2641
once again i apoligize for thinks it was less that 15 years old

    Make sure that you clean out the channels that the water flows through around the pump impellor. refit the pump cover, ensure the rubber ring is in correct position, and secure with the screw. Reassemble in reverse order.

    How do I remove the agitator for replacement.


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

    Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with a 1/2" square drive.

    Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator.

    See the following illustrated steps to replace the agitate "dogs"
    along with a description of how to remove the lower agitator.

    I need to replace the agitator in my maytag dependable care plus washer. I have unscrewed the top part, but cant's get the bottom to lift out. What do you recommend?


    There is 1 screw in the side of the agitator near the bottom that must be removed. The screw has a 1/4 head and is about 1 inch long. Take your finger and look for a round hole area a\on the side of the agitator just up from where the bottom part of the agitator merges with the stem. It is about 1.5 inches up from there on the side. Remove that screw and the agitator will easily lift out.

    How do i remove the agitator to remove a tangled drawstring


    Hi,
    To remove the agitator you need to unscrew the cap on top of the agitator. With the cap off, pull straight up on the agitator; it should lift off. If it doesn't move, rap its side with a hammer. If it still won't lift off, drive wedges under the bottom rim of the agitator to dislodge it. Then set the new agitator if you want and replace the agitator cap.

    Note: Damage to the snubbed, a pad like device sometimes located under the agitator cap, can cause the machine to vibrate excessively. Check to see if wet laundry is wadded around the bottom of the tub shaft, or under the basket or agitator assembly. Remove the basket or agitator in order to remove the laundry easily.
    Let us know if you want any further clarification.

    Everything works but the agitator


    The small plastic pieces that are located under the agitator center cap that grip the agitator and turn it during the wash cycle are worn out. They are called agitator dog ears or clutch dogs. They must be replaced.
    1. Unplug the washer.
    2. Remove the fabric softener dispenser, if there's any, by pulling it off the agitator top. cf99d03.gif
    3. If no dispenser is installed, insert a flat screwdriver between the agitator and agitator cap. Pry the cap off the agitator then remove the upper part of the agitator. cae2ce0.gif
    4. Remove the barrier cap by pulling it up. e07b74d.gif
    5. Use a socket wrench with extension or nut driver to remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft. 96cc7e9.gif
    6. Remove the agitator mover by pulling it off the agitator. 5f03bae.gif
    7. Turn the agitator mover over on your palm. The cam and agitator dogs will come out on your palm. Pay attention to how the agitator dogs are installed. Remove the worn agitator dogs and install the new ones. c8eb889.gif
    8. If the agitator dogs are not worn, check the agitator shaft. Remove the round rubber seal off the top of the agitator and remove the agitator by lifting it straight up. Call up service if the shaft is worn. ca89530.jpged86a35.jpg
    9. Reinstall the agitator. Rotate it until the grooves on the agitator matches the grooves on the shaft then push the agitator down.
    10. Place the round rubber seal in the groove on the top of the agitator. 5314b95.gif
    11. Turn the agitator mover over and carefully insert the cam and agitator dogs up into the agitator mover until it stops. c55998d.gif
    12. Carefully turn the agitator mover over in upright position.
    13. Place the agitator mover with the cam and dogs over the agitator, lining up the tabs. The cam has a cut-out and tabs across from each other. The agitator has tabs across from each other. All of these must line up in order for the cam to slide down on the agitator.5f7e245.gif
    14. Push the cam down until the tabs snap together.
    15. Put the upper part of the agitator back.
    16. Using a socket wrench with extension or nut driver, insert the stud and seal through the agitator into the shaft and tighten it.
    17. Push the barrier cap and seal down into the agitator mover all the way. Make sure the round gasket is in the groove in the barrier cap. The barrier cap must be pushed down past the holes on the mover to allow the liquid from the dispenser to flow.
    18. Press down on the fabric softener dispenser or cap until it is all the way down on the agitator.

    The bottom part of the agitator will turn, but not the top part


    The agitator has two parts. One is the bottom agitator and then you have the top agitator that moves the clothes around. If the top part of the agitator is not moving. You probably need to replace the dog ears. Check the agitator dogs inside the top of the agitator, they are bad for wearing out, sometimes the agitator may only agitate one way when the dogs are worn out. This is an instruction sheet that came with the last parts I ordered for a Whirlpool/Inglis style direct drive washer agitator. If you need to replace your agitator dogs, please see this link for some repair aid. -- click on this link directly to get the detailed instruction for replacing dog ear
    http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsdesk_id=136
    to remove the whole agitator check out the instructions as follows:
    (1) Kenmore washer..... Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a bolt and remove the bolt, lift up on the agitator...picture1, picture2.
    (2) Kenmore washer.....Remove the agitator cap, some caps unscrew and some will just pull off. Look for a plastic bolt and remove the bolt, the plastic bold will have a square in the middle that the square end of the shaft of an socket extension ( or a very large flat screw driver ) will fit into the square hole to unscrew the plastic nut off...remove the upper 1/2 of the agitator....remove thebolt holding down the bottom 1/2 of the agitator, lift up on the agitator. also you can get the exact required parts from www.repairclinic.com
    This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

    Dear Whitworth,

    The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. If it doesn't function properly, your clothes won't be as clean as possible. If your agitator does not move, moves only in one direction or its movement is very weak, you will probably need to remove the agitator. Furthermore, in order to inspect the tub for leaks, the clutch assembly, the splines, or to remove the spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.

    The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.
    Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.
    Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some Maytags may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.
    If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.
