Question about Washing Machines
This is a simple procedure. Just follow these steps:
1. Remove the center post cap or fabric softener dispenser (if equipped) from the agitator by gently prying it off.
2. Under the center post cap locate the air gap plastic cap (if equipped) and remove.
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 upper portion of the agitator (called the "auger") by lifting straght up.
5. Remove the lower portion of the agititator by grasping the lower flanges near the bottom of the wash tub and pulling straight up.
This will expose the transmission shaft and anything that may be lodged under the agitator.
Reassemble in the reverse order of the instructions I provided. NOTE: Make sure you only tighten the agitator bolt until it is snug. Do not overtighten as this can break the agitator or restrict its movement.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
