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.

Thanks
Vic

Shutter Curtain Doesnt Reset Mirror


If your shutter curtain doesnt close, it may be out of Sync with the shutter button. My Minolta x700 had this problem. My camera guy fixed it for me with a couple of tinker moves. Contact your nearest camera repair shop (if available) and ask how much it would be to fix the Sync between depressing the shutter button and the curtain. it may just be some grime that has it stuck.

Clothing stuck under the agitator


Hold the agitator steady and the very top end will screw off. If very old it will be stuck pretty tight, but do not break it. Then the agitator will lift straight up.
