I believe for that model, to remove the agitator you must reach inside with both hands and firmly grasp the lower part of the agitator and pull straight up. It may be a little difficult but should come off. Make sure you get it all the way back down when putting it back on. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: kenmore 80 series leaking....plastic tub cracked on the bottom

if you removed the large nut (round with four notches cut in it ) then tub should be free. sometimes these "rust together" on the hub. wd40 and a hammer to knock it free. try rocking the basket to break free. you did remove the tub ring(white plastic part on top), right?

SOURCE: clothing stuck under agitator

The agitator pops off. You will need to use a flat head screw driver or something short enough to get in the tub and under the agitator and it will pop off. They are on there pretty good so it will take some work

Machine not agitating


The most common cause for the agitator not spinning is a broken drive belt. If you are able to turn the agitator by hand, the belt is likely broken. If the agitator cannot be easily turned by hand, there is likely a piece of clothing jammed underneath and the agitator will need to be removed to clear the jam. The video below will demonstrate the procedure for replacing the drive belt in most Whirlpool washers.

If you are referring to something being caught under the agitator, you can remove the agitator easily, by following these steps:

1. Remove the agitator center cap by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.

2. If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.

3. Remove the center bolt of the agitator. You will have either a 7/16” hex bolt or a recessed square plastic nut. If you have the square recessed type, use a 3/8” to ½” ratchet adapter to remove.

4. Remove the agitator by grasping the bottom flange and carefully pulling straight up.

With the agitator removed, you can easily retrieve anything caught underneath. When reinstalling the agitator DO NOT overtigthen the center post nut. Tighten until snug.

If this is not what you are referring to, please post back and let me know, so I can provide you with better assistance. I hope this is helpful to you.

How do I replace the agitator?


Slide a heavy leather belt underneath the agitator and pull up really hard. It will come loose.

Can't get agitator off of GE spacemaker model WWP 1180G


There is a bolt, ok. Remove the bolt and lift the agitator by reaching underneath it with both hands on each side and pull it up. If it seems really stuck, apply some WD40 and let it soak a bit before trying to pull it again.

Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it from the shaft. Check the agitator mounting cup underneath it is probably stripped out. It is a replaceable part.
If the agitator is difficult to pull up,use a old strong leather belt under the agitator and pull it off using the belt.

Need to remove Agitator


On a MAV6000, you should be able to pop off the fabric softner cap, remove the fabric softner cup underneath, and finally remove the bolt underneath to lift up the agitator. (rocking the cap back and forth is usually the best method)
