    Hi

    Its a Hoover Elite 1205. However, I have since found that the agitator on this machine can be removed after undoing a screw/bolt located inside the top of the agitator.

    Thanks.

Some of the washing machines you can buy a small inner tube and put it around the agitator and slide it under the agitator then blow up the inner tube and the agitator will come off.

Kenmore Elite 110.22992 Won't agitate properly. Can't find way to get agitator housing out of machine.


In the exploded view on SearsPartsDirect it shows to remove the cover and there is a "agitator bolt" under it. Item # 22 in the picture below is the cover and the bolt is item # 2. The dogs that are usually bad are # 5.

I have a Kenmore Elite top load washer, model # 110.16972500. I got a shoelace cought under the agitator.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Take a look at this link so you can see what parts secure your agitator in place:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fK0507016-00003.png

Also see this link for item number descriptions:

You have to lift off the cap (Item 1) and then the inner cap & washer (Items 22 and 23) to get to the mounting bolt item 21. You will have to use a socket and an extension to remove the agitator mouting bolt. After removing the mounting bolt you should be able to lift the agitator to free the shoe lace. Re-assemble in reverse order. Mounting bolt... inner cap and washer... then the top cap.

Using a ratchet, an extension and socket; then remove the retaining bolt under the fabric softener cup.
The agitator will lift off after the bolt is removed.

Installation is:

Where is the lint trap loacated on my machine? Frigidaire ATF7000FS1 model


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Download this manual and go to page 6 item 40:
http://guides.homeeverything.com/cache/FRBVHTCGJYGT.PDF

This is the pump filter. You must remove the back panel and then the 3 hose clamps Items 42 (1 ea) and 48 (2 ea) seen on page 6 and pull the coin trap item 41 to get to the pump filter item 40.

There is no "lint trap" per se. Just the pump filter.

WHIRLPOOL MODEL LXR9445JQ0 WASHER. UPPER AGITATOR NOT WORKING VERY WELL, EXCEPT ON SMALL LOADS. LOWER AGITATOR WORKING ALL THE TIME. UPPER AGITATOR CAM BAD? HOW HARD TO REPLACE?


You need to replace the agitator dogs. Yes...there is such a thing. These are four small plastic pieces under the agitator cap that grip the upper agitator, preventing it from back spinning under a load. Searspartdirect.com has an excellent illustration of how your agitator is assembled. Just type in your model number and look under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading. The dogs are listed as item 10 (part #80040). For a bit more you can order the entire upper cam replacment kit (which includes the dogs) as item 9 (285811). For instructions on how to replace, just follow this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

This is an expensive and very simple repair. If you require addtional assistance, let me know. I hope this helps you.
