Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
It may be necessary to remove the agitator. The following steps explain how:
1. Remove the agitator center cap by either pulling straight up or gently placing a flat blade screwdriver into a slot located in the cap.
2. If the agitator is equipped with an inner cap with a handle, remove this as well by pulling straight up.
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 agitator by grasping the bottom flange and carefully pulling straight up. Try to keep all the parts assembled while doing this, so do not pull too hard. This will make this repair much easier.
NOTE: Make sure the inner cap (if equipped) is reinstalled correctly. This acts as an air gap to prevent water from getting inside the gearcase (transmission). Do not overtighten the agitator bolt when reinstalling, either. Overtightening can cause damage to the agitator and/or restrict its movement. Tighten until snug.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Hi, Remove the cap to the agitator and there should be a 7/16" bolt. Remove the bolt and the agitator should lift out. Please let me know if this helped you at all or if I can assist you further.

you can remove the agitator. there are 3 steps to this. 1.take off the top plastic part of the agitator. 2 remove secondary plastic piece from inside of agitator 3. there will be a 7/16 bolt inside and will be deep so you will need a long extension to reach it. hold the fins of the agitator and remove the bolt with a ratchet. once the bolt is out you will be able to lift the agitator up.
