Re: how to remove agitator

Remove the agitator by grasping firmly and pulling up towards your chin, carefully!
*( many have 1/4 hex head screw on agitator, down the side near the base, older ones have a rubber ring on transmission shaft 63d52cc.jpg

How do i remove the agitator from a GE G154 washer

I stood in the big basket and pulled up on the agitator and it came out. My tights were wound around the post underneath...would've never come out if I wouldn't have removed the agitator. 3rd pair of tights ruined! Also had a camisole do the same. I wouldn't advise buying this washer....I now have to hand wash tights, bras, and camisoles. The agitator went back fairly easy...altho on the second try, I think I had it positioned just right...?...phew!

A robe's long thin tying cord disappeared in the machine. It could be wound around the agitator shaft. How to look for it?

More than likely, it is in the water pump. Tip your washer back and remove the pump. It is held on by two clips and that will avoid you having problems with the pump very soon.

if anyone is still doing this.. i had a hotpoint model type vbxr1060. It had just a cap on agitator no extra bolts and used two hammers to get underneath the base creating leverage..

Work both hammers in (using the nail puller side) as far as possible towards the center of the agitator on opposing sides and use them to pull up and slightly outwards towards the sides of the basin. When you get it off you will see why this works as the agitator's base has mini clips that grasp the base of the air bell housing. hope this tip helps someone.

A t-shirt is stuck under agitator/spinner thing. How do I lift off the spin assembly?

yes, remove the softener dispenser at the top of the agitator and there is a bolt there that is holding the agitator assembly. if you remove that bolt, the whole piece can be pull out and you can remove the clothe that was stuck in there.

tnx 4 using fixya,

with the exeption of something you mistakenly left in your clothing and wound up in the washer, not likely stains are from there , most of the time they do come from the dryer, try grabbin an old white rag nad runnig it around hte fron of hte dryer drum and then tyr the rear where the drum meets the back bulkhead. usually leavs brownish streks smome what curved 2-3 inches log. its from hte felt hte supposed to seal the drum. its either wearing thin, or a glide has worn away causing the issue
