How do I remove the agitater from simpson washing machine espirit 550 5.5kg


most machines with verticle and turning agitators have a cap on the top which may be removed with a small ***** driver. that should give you access to dawgs and release nut. use a rubber hammer to gently tap and loosen if need be.

Simpson ezi loader


Hi,

The bearings are pre-loaded with grease but a smear of lithium grease can be used to ease fitting into the spider.The howling could be possibly because of the drum bearings.If your machine is making a rumbling noise as the drum turns then you most likely have an issue with the drum bearings. It's possible that normal use can allow water to get to the bearings. Remove the washing machine belt and manually turn the drum. If you hear a rumble as you turn the drum then problem is the ball bearings. Remove and replace them with new ones.Not knowing if your Simpson is a direct drive through a multi -speed gear box or another method, that makes it hard to give you a definitive answer. In my experience with earlier Simpson Washing machines the agitator should lift off the Splined shaft in the bowl by gripping the bottom of the agitator on the bottom edge using both hands at 180o between them, basically one opposite the other and trying to lift the agitator off vertically straight up until it clears the splined shaft and above the top lip of the bowl at which time you can remove it from the bowl. Be careful it doesn't give way suddenly as you maybe leaning over the bowl and with the force you sometimes have to exert it might come up and strike you hard around your facial region. If the agitator either has never been lifted off or a long period of time since it was then you may have to "wiggle" the agitator whilst attempting to lift the thing of the drive shaft. Once you have removed the agitator clean and re grease the splined drive shaft with suitable grease, not too much only a smear as too much will melt and leach into the bowl and hence you'll have greasy marks on the washing. Clean out the female splined section of the agitator and again a thin film of grease should be rubbed on the female splines. Replace the agitator on the shaft and make sure it's fully the length of the shaft as it will ride up and attempt to come of the drive shaft whilst the machine is operating if it's not seated correctly. If you think there are / is foreign objects beneath the agitator that seldom happens but sometimes it can with small articles. The problem of noisy agitators can be caused by worn bearings in the drive gear box which in turn allows the agitator to move sideways a bit and that then can grind on the bottom of the bowl under the agitator or even allow a small piece of cloth to get under the agitator etc. I doubt the unit would be driven by a belt directly connected to another pulley on the agitator but only a sub bowl inspection can prove that. I've never come across a Simpson that doesn't have a 2 speed direct drive gear box for the agitator and the spin dryer.

Note:- if you aren't sure about the greasing i would recommend you to contact the company's technician.

Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if it helped you.
