I removed the bolt but the agitator bell is stuck


Hi Simon:
These things can be a PITA!
Seems that the bell almost gets "glued" to the post with soap residue. All I can suggest it to re-install the bolt (without washer if there was one), snug it down, then back off about 2 turns.
Here's where controlled brute force happens.....
- If you can lift on the bell and at the same time hit down on the bolt, the shock should pop it loose.
- Lifting on the bell and staying out of the way of the next step can be tricky. Sometimes the bell is shaped so that you can tie a cloth strap around it so that you can get a really strong lift.
- I use a block of wood about a foot long to place on the bolt and then hit the block with a 2 lb hammer while at the same time lifting on the bell.
- When it pops loose, remove the bolt and lift the bell off.
Ta Da!
Cheers.

What does the code de stands for


On front-load washers, it can stand for "door error", meaning the main control board thinks the door is open. If the door is actually closed and the de error won't clear, the electric door lock could be shorted, giving a false signal to the main control board. On the Samsung top-loader, it means a "child lock error" has happened. On that washer, you will see "CL" or "DE", the washer will auto-drain and an alarm will sound. To clear the error, close the door, turn off the power, then turn it back on.

I have a GE top loading washing machine. The agitator has stopped working and the drum no longer spins at the end of the cycle when the water drains. What can I do to fix it and get the agitator...


Hi,

When the agitator on your GE washing machine does not work correctly, the most likely cause is a worn drive bell. The drive bell sits on the agitator shaft inside the agitator. The shaft and the inside of the bell lock together using splines. When the splines inside the drive bell wear out, the agitator will not rotate correctly. To repair the agitator on the GE top loading washing machine, you will need to remove the agitator and the drive bell.

1. Unplug the GE washer from the wall outlet. Open the washer lid to access the agitator.
2. Grab the bottom of the agitator with both hands and pull the agitator out of the washing machine. If the agitator will not budge, rent agitator hooks to pry the agitator out. Agitator hooks are available at appliance repair stores. Set the agitator hooks under the agitator and push down on the handle to pull the agitator off the shaft.
3. Pry off the plug on the top of the drive bell on the agitator shaft with a small flathead screwdriver. Use a socket wrench to remove the hex head bolt at the top of the drive bell. Carefully pull the drive bell up off of the agitator shaft. This may take some force depending on how stripped the inside of the drive bell has become.
4. Inspect the inside of the drive bell. There are splines inside the drive bell that line up with the splines on the shaft. Most often the splines inside the drive bell have worn, causing the shaft to spin but not the drive bell. Also inspect the notch on the outside of the drive bell and the notch inside the bottom of the agitator. If either of these are worn, replace the drive bell and the agitator.
5. Take the drive bell to an appliance repair shop to purchase a new part. If you need to replace the agitator, take the old one with you as well. Compare the new parts to the old ones, making sure they are identical.
6. Position the new drive bell over the agitator shaft, lining up the splines on the shaft with the splines on the inside of the drive bell. Set the securing bolt back into the top of the drive bell and tighten the bolt down until it pushes the drive bell down until the bell bottoms out. Push the new plug on the top of the agitator bell with the palm off your hand until the plug locks into place.
7. Place the agitator over the drive bell and slowly rotate the agitator until the notch inside the agitator lines up with the notch on the outside of the drive bell. Tap the top of the agitator down with the palm of your hand until the notch on the agitator locks down over the notch on the drive bell. The agitator will not bottom out flush with the tub.
8. Close the washer lid and plug the washer power cord back into the wall socket.

The defective agitator is the cause of the drum not spinning. So get the agitator fixed and it should solve the spinning problem.

Good luck.

Washer stops after wash cycle, does not cool down and drain water. I turn the knob to rinse it starts up again but does not drain the water. Help


Can you provide the exact Make, Model and Kenmore model number? ..........

Kenmore model numbers use the format ###.######## with the first three digits of 110 for Whirlpool manufactured machines.........

The model number on top load washers is usually found by lifting the lid and looking above the tub.

The Fixya numbers are Stock Numbers. Series numbers (70, 80, 90) only designate the number of "Bells and Whistles" that a washer has and don't reflect the model number.

See the following for where to find the model number:

Since basic top load direct drive, top load electronic and front load washers are very different, the actual Model Numbers are necessary to correctly diagnose the problem.

Good afternoon! We have a Frigidaire top load washer, model # FWS445RFS2. The tub continuously fills with water and we must manually stop the washer and then turn the dial to spin & drain. It cannot...


Joe, remove panel to get access to outside of outer tub. You will see a "bell" with a soft 3/8 clear line coming from it. That is your water pressure hose and it goes to a switch in the control panel. Remove one side from the bell housing, outer tub, and check for gookus. Clean out all obstructions. If there isn't any obstruction in the line, you need a new pressure switch up in control panel. There is a small chance that there is something on the inside of the outer tub which is obstucting air bell but I don't see this very often. Hope this helps,

There may be nothing wrong with the splie/gearbox shaft. At the top of the agitator on the inside is a brass "dog" That may be worn and you will need to replace it.
