Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I want to replace the aggitator but cant pull it off
Some models have a fabric softener dispenser located at the top of the agitator that must be pulled off so you can get access to the fastener that holds the aggitator onto the transmission/motor shaft. Some are just pressed onto the motor shaft and after years of use, get gunked up (yep, that's the technical term for it!). You can pour some hot water down the agitator tube to help flush out the gunk and that should make it easier to remove the agitator.
Also, check along the bottom of the agitator to see if there is a small hole that might be concealing a locking set screw that is holding the agitator onto the shaft. It varies from model to model, so look all over and around the agitator before exerting any force in an attempt to pry it off the shaft.
Try to get your hands under the bottom lip of the agitator at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and try to rock it back and forth while pulling up and it should work itself free.
Just be sure you have removed any screw or hex headed fastener that could be holding the agitator onto the shaft 1st!
