Removing bolt in agitator arm

Do I turn clockwise or counter clockwise - because I can't get it to budge. I'm using a 7/16 socket. Also, what is the best way to immobilize the agitator while trying to loosen and then tighten the bolt?

Re: removing bolt in agitator arm

The bolt unscrews counterclockwise. Hold the agitator by the bottom vanes. If it won',t budge try tightening it first, just a little to break it free.

How do u replace the agitator on a fisher & paykel clothes washer gwl15 ?

Disconnect power then lift the lid open. Pry the dispenser assembly off the agitator top then remove the agitator bolt by turning it counterclockwise. Once the bolt is off, lift the agitator then install the new agitator in place. Secure it with the agitator bolt then put the dispenser assembly back into position. Lifting the basket helps budge the agitator and remove it more easily.

The bottom part of the agitator seems stuck. It won't spin during a normal wash cycle and it won't budge when I try to move it when it is not on.

Small garments can get caught under the bottom agitator. Disconnect power then remove the agitator cap to expose the agitator bolt. Using a small flat-head screw driver, insert it between the agitator and the cap then pry the cap off the agitator. Remove the barrier cap if present then remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft using a 7/16" socket wrench with extension. Once the stud and seal are removed, lift the agitator off the shaft. You may need and extra shear of force when pulling the agitator off the shaft.

Does not agiteate.,spins freely

You have a two piece agitator held onto the top of the transmission shaft by a 7/16 inch bolt which turns off counter clockwise . Pop off the top of the agitator cover with a screwdriver in the slot to see it. Remove the bolt and pull out the entire agitator. There are four little dogs in the middle of the agitator that the teeth are wore off, these need to be replaced, you pull the agitator apart to do this, or find a service store and take it there. It is very simple.

Agitator seems to not turn right. Is there a gear that could be broken?

I'll assume that this is a standard direct drive, top loading washer. Try manually turning the agitator counter-clockwise, it should catch. if the top of the agitator spins freely, you will need to replace the agitator dogs. Part#80040 Just remove the agitator cap, (or softener dispenser) and remove the inner cap and seal. There should be a 7/16th bolt that holds the agitator onto the tranny shaft. Remove bolt and pull the agitator up from the base. Once you have the dogs, you'll see where to go from there, it's hard to explain on a post, but is actually rather simple to perform. The doga are what catches back against the grain to create the agitating action. Hopefully that's all it is.

most likely the agitator dogs are bad. if the agitator engages clockwise and free spins counter clockwise they are good, if it slips they are bad. remove the bolt in the center of the agitator, take off cap or dispenser and remove the inner cap first. pull out the agitator, put on the floor, stand on the base of the agitator and pull up on the upper part to separate, take out the dog holder and replace dogs. Most appliance repair shops should have part on hand for about 5-6 dollars. part number 80040-fsp.

Under the agitator is a flat nut with notches in it. this nut requires a spanner wrench that will fit into the notches. You can use a large channel lock plier. rotate the nut counter-clockwise. under the nut will be a seal. remove the nut and the seal and pull up on the inner tub. to replace you'll need to replace the seal. if the nut isn't too chopped up, use this to refasten the tub.
