Hi

It seems that something is stuck and you'll have to remove the agitator to clean it. If this is an old style washer, then it should have a bolt under the cap that must be removed to remove the agitator, then grab hold of the agitator and lift up. If it's a not too old then the agitator just pulls out, remove cap, if no bolt, just grab hold and lift it up hard... see the picture. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

How do you remove the agitator on amana washer model lwa30aw


Unplug the Amana washing machine from the wall outlet, and open the lid. Pull the liquid fabric softener dispenser straight off of the top of the agitator. Some Maytag washers require the use of a flat head screwdriver inserted between the dispenser and the top of the agitator. Twist the handle of the screwdriver to pop the dispenser off of the agitator.

Remove the barrier cap inside the agitator using your hands. Pull the barrier cap straight out of the agitator. There is an O-ring that attaches to the outside of the barrier cap. If it did not come out with the cap, pull the O-ring out of the center of the agitator.

Remove the bolt securing the agitator to the drive bell with the socket wrench. The bolt is inside the center of the agitator.

Place your fingers in between the bottom of the agitator and the tub. Lift straight up to remove the agitator from the tub. Keep your head out of the way in case the agitator is stuck and unexpectedly releases. If necessary, use agitator hooks. Insert them under the agitator and push down on the hooks to release the agitator.

I couldn't wait for a rely on my posted question on March 6,2009. I was able to ask around to figure out how to clean this up. This Amana washer model has an agitator that is just clipped on. I just got my fingers underneath the agitator and pulled it off. After getting the agitator off, I was able to clean all of the old built up detergent and fabric softner with some old fashion scrubbing. Then I used some CLR to get what ever I missed. I pushed the agitator back until it clicked back into place and ran one washing cylce to clean things up.....Works great....No more old clumpy stuff showing up in the wash....

I need to remove the agitator from my washing machine.


On most Amana washers you pull on the agitator with brute force. It "snaps" on. It helps if you fill the washer with hot water and let it set for a few minutes... drain and then try pulling it out. When i last took apart my Amana it took me and a friend to pull the agitator off.

Washer wont agitate with med - large loads


Without knowing the age of your machine, your agitator "dogs" may be wearing or worn out. It should be fairly easy to check them out. You will need to figure out how to remove the agitator Usually the agitator will have a fabric softener dispenser or a cap on the top. Pull the dispenser/cap off the top of the agitator and you may see a screw holding the agitator in place. Once you lift the agitator out, the "dogs" should be visible. Most appliance stores should carry the dogs for your particular washing machine. I've added a couple of photos so you have an idea what to look for.

Black powder under the motor??? The motor uses carbon "brushes" to electrically make the motor move. Without going into motor theory, I would tell you that the black powder, in a small amount, is normal. The brushes can be replaced, and again, can be found at most major appliance dealers
