Grandma's nylons wrapped around the bottom of the agitater

Simple as that i need to know how to remove the agitater so that i can untangle the nylons. i've removed the cap off the top of the agitater and then removed a bolt  ()bout 3 inches long) however it still won't come off.

Now you need to pull upward firmly but hard.  there are small splines holding the agitator in position. carefull if the agitator has two parts to it as there are usually plastic (dogs)inside which could spring loose if you are not careful.

withoout asking why , heres how to remove the inner tub, simple enough. theres abolt in the top of the agitator,(pop the little cover with a screwdriver). the agitater pops off, insert a screw driver under the maintop perhaps 3 inches in from both sides and pop the clips the main top leans back. Unsnap the white cover from around the outer tub and lastly there will be (2)) 1/2inch screws screwed into asolid block at bottom of agitator, thay are locking the inner tub to the transmission shaft. note the flat spot on the transmission whish the block is resting youll need to reinstall it at same point
