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!

I cant lift trhe bottom aggitate plate in my hmwm8000 i have removed the cap and phillips head screw how tov lift the plate?


there should be a bolt holding aggitator on spines,if not try grabbing aggitator and pulling up while rocking aggitator back and forth it will require a great amount of force to remove aggitator fron splined shaft,also so penatrating spray may help sprayed on splined shaft.It also may need to be cleaned around splined shaft to clean built up soap build up. also a haet gun or a hair dryer on high heat on top of aggitator shaft when trying to remove may help!

Will not agitate 110 92587210 Kenmore Washer


I have 2 words for you: "dog ears".

the dog aggitation ears are what cause the aggitator to aggitate. Those things wear down and not grab after time.

Pretty easy to change out. You just need to pull the aggitator out and change the 4 little plastic ears. Good luck :)

Washer will not aggitate all other functions work fine


Sounds like you need a set of dogs...(dog agits)...

Pop the top off the agitator and remove the bolt. Pull the agitator top off and inspect the dogs...(small tear drop shaped pieces of nylon)...

Sounds like the dogs lost their bite aka teeth.

Mixing center spindle won't aggitate


Your agitator dogs are worn out.
Remove the agitator and replace the 4 little rubber dogs.
Snap the top off. Remove the bolt inside. Pull up on the top part and access the dogs.

The aggitator (sp?) isn't turning...the rest seems to be working (spin & fill). How do I fix it and is it worth fixing? Model LBT6133A Whirlpool Washer


Go under the aggitator inside the tub and pull out the aggitator it self and check out see if the teeth are strip,If the teeth are strip on the aggitator replace it. If is on the other side then it's not worth repairing. All you need to do is just pull on the aggitor from the bottom.
