Removing retaing screw on agitator

I have a roper that I'm trying to replace the agitator assy but can't get the retaining bolt off. What is the trick?, when I turn the bolt the whole assy moves. so I try back pressure with my hand but never get a good enough grip and ideas?

Its a 7/16 bolt. so with a longer extension on a ratchet and holding bak the agitator with the other hand, perhaps a sqirt of some 3-n-1 oil ,

Headlight is out on pass. side. Is the bulb replaced by removing the 2 phillips screws?


No, there are three 10mm bolts which secure the headlamp assy in place. remove them, then remove the assy, then unplug connectors. There are two caps (one for high beam and one for low beam). Once caps are removed, you will see the bulb plugs/connectors and the retaining clip - note the bulbs have 'slots' (or 'keys') where they fit into their sockets.

Agitator


These are called agitator ratchet's and are located beneath the plastic retainer cover which is held in place by a 3/8" bolt. Remove bolt from agitator and remove. You may need to use a flat screwdriver to depress 3 glued tabs within this plastic retainer. From top use hammer lightly tap with screw driver until all 3 are free. Turn agitator over ratchet's are accessible. Order agitator ratchets. Thank you

Whirlpool Ultimate Care Washing Machine Agitator


after removing the agitator from the machine (7/16 bolt) i place the agitator on the floor, step on either side of it and pull up on the top half, ittl come loose, needs a little help! a word of advice though is after replacing the agitator dogs, turn the entire agitator upside down and insert the bolt through the entire agitator assy and keep constatn pressure on the bolt as you turn it boack over and try to realign with thte tranny shat. ( you see the parts wanna seperate as you try to reinstall them otherwise)

How do I remove the agitator from a compact whirlpool washer model LCR7244DQ2, SERIAL VLG4923565, TYPE 113-01, ASSEMBLED IN MEXICO, AGITATOR PART # 1154680


Retaing bolt on this model is not on top. uses a 1/4 inch hex head screw about 12" down on the outside of the agitator.
Once removed agitator slides upwards off the drive spline. Gentle brute force may be required!

Agitator-How do you get it off?


(Roper is actually made by Whirlpool) This is simpler than it sounds, just takes time and a few steps. Do you have a fabric softener dispenser that resides on top of the agitator? This dispenser simply snaps onto the top of the agitator. Some styles use a decorative cap. To remove the dispenser, simply grab it and firmly pull up. There is a cap that covers the bolt or nut that holds the agitator in place. To remove the agitator cap, insert a small flat-head screw driver into the seam between the agitator cap and the upper agitator (the part that moves). Use a twisting or prying action to pop the cap off of the agitator. Sometimes there is a little slot where you can insert the screwdriver. Look for it first. There maybe an internal debris cap under this: Inside the agitator you will see a cap with a raised handle. Simply reach into the agitator and twist the cap while pulling up. This will remove the cap and its o-ring. Removing the agitator: When looking into the agitator assembly, you will notice a single nut in the center of the agitator. Use a socket kit or nut driver to remove this bolt or nut from the agitator stud. Don't use plyers, it'll just mess up the nut. With the bolt removed you should be able to remove the agitator by simply pulling up. Twist back and forth CW & CCW when lifting. Some are a 2 piece design, so pulling up will actually remove either the whole agitator assembly or only half of it. If whole assy comes up and you may need to seperate the two for your new parts. Place the Lower Agitator on the floor and stand on the flat lip. Then Pull up to separate the Upper Agitator (mover) from the Lower Agitator. As far as your parts go I'm not sure where they go without seeing it myself. There is a spline or ratch assembly which causes the agitator to move back and forth. They are usually made of plastic and get worn or break. This might be what you are replacing. It's not clear as to what parts they gave you. Good Luck
