I cant lift trhe bottom aggitate plate in my hmwm8000 i have removed the cap and phillips head screw how tov lift the plate?

there should be a bolt holding aggitator on spines,if not try grabbing aggitator and pulling up while rocking aggitator back and forth it will require a great amount of force to remove aggitator fron splined shaft,also so penatrating spray may help sprayed on splined shaft.It also may need to be cleaned around splined shaft to clean built up soap build up. also a haet gun or a hair dryer on high heat on top of aggitator shaft when trying to remove may help!

Trying to remove aggitator from maytag atlantis I removed fabric softener part need to get the shaft of aggitator off trying to clean my softener keeps leaking out after wash is done

i believe all you have to do is put your fingers underneath the bottom of the agitator and pull up and the whole agitator pops up to remove it out of the tub.

Washer will not aggitate all other functions work fine

Sounds like you need a set of dogs...(dog agits)...

Pop the top off the agitator and remove the bolt. Pull the agitator top off and inspect the dogs...(small tear drop shaped pieces of nylon)...

Sounds like the dogs lost their bite aka teeth.

Aggitator won't work and won't spin/ drains ok

Coupling is bad.
There is a coupling between the motor and the transmission. When this part breaks then it will pump the water out but won't spin or aggitate.

Aggitator is lose small items (socks) fall down behind aggitator

When the wash plate is loose (can be lifted up and down) it means that your washer needs a u-joint kit. Yes, Whirlpool actually came out with an entire kit for this.

Tightening the bolts (actually there are 6 of them) won't fix your problem. The kit number is 285927. There's an instruction sheet included with it.

After you get the kit and are ready to install it, remove the white plastic dome by inserting a flat screwdriver into the 4 small slots (look closely and you'll see them) and lifting up at the same time.

*Beware... this is a MAJOR job. Be prepared to spend a long time on it. You'll need to lift the top panel, remove the balance ring, remove the wash plate, remove the drive block nut (<---sometimes requires a torch), etc... It may not be something you wanna jump into. Call an appliance repair outfit and ask them what they'd charge to install one if you ordered the part.
