Question about Washing Machines
I have removed softner dispenser and cap below dispenser. the bolt is suppose to be under this to remove the agitator. The bolt is flush to the top of a plastic piece and i can't get to it. I tried to push down the agitator but it doesn't move down. Thought about hammering it down,lol, but I'm afraid I'll break something else on it. The agitator is making loud noise so I know it has to be replaced. It doesn't even move around.
Bolt should be reachable with a socket wrench. Agitator Repair Kit 285748

Testimonial: "Thanks, but after watching about 20 how to video's I found out that I don't have a bolt but a plastic piece that you take out with a auger bit attached to a screwdriver like handle or I'm sure there is a special tool, but the auger works great. I'm waiting for the week-end so I can get the pieces I'll need. Thanks again for your help."

Once the top cap of the agitator is removed, take a pair of pliers and pull up forcefully on the plastic cap inside. Then take a 7/16 socket wrench and remove the agitator bolt. Pull the agitator apart. Get part number 3366877 from any appliance parts store.

Hi, Just tap on the softener dispenser to free it up. Sometimes they stick because of the softener. YOu might try and pry it off with a butter knife. There should be a 7/16" bolt to remove.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: can't remove agitator
Get 2 2x2 pieces of wood or 2 oak handles, 20 inches long. lay on on top of the other on the top of the washer. Loop a rope or ******** both sides of the agitator over one of the pieces of wood and tie it to the top piece of wood. Twist the top piece of wood slowly. As the 2 loops tighten up under the agitator the bottom piece holds the rope firmly across the top of machine. This save you from getting socked in the face by the agitator when it come off. You can buy an agitator remover but why not make you one and have so much fun doing it See the pic below? just ease a stick above the 2x4 and start slowly twing till she jumps out. Note: I didn't make this design I found it on line. I would run the rope under the agitator instead of taking a chance on breaking the fins. But that's just me.The trick is to grab it by the neck instead of the base. So try that before concocting a agitator remover. The agitator just snaps on. The drive block under the agitator is stripped out Wh43X10009 is the part number. Here it the manual
