You have to pull straight upwards on the agitator. They are on that drive bell very securely so you'll have to pull like a madman. I have heard of some technicians using a belt or strap slid under the agitator to get it to pop free. But I just remove them by slipping my fingertips under it on opposite sides and yanking it upwards.Then check to see of bolt is tight that holds agitator in place if the plastic piece moves freely and the bolt its tight here is what I did.Take the bolt of and put 2 washers on the bolt then tighten it back down.This should make it so it will not spin freely.

Hope this helps..

Ge washer whre5550k2ww tub wont spin


It may be the rotor position sensor. i used you tube tutorials. There are many washers that are the same, but different brand names. Matag, whirlpool, kenmore elite oasis, all the same and parts. I got lucky and a cleaning hack. It was to clean between the tob and thre shell. This is located up under where you cannot see, use a mirror and look wherr your detergent, fabric softer and bleach dispensers are. And i found a tutorial on diagnosting code that will do it for you. I think it was holding a cycle 5x for 5 seconds and it will tell you. Whats wrong, Good Luck

My top load GE fills, drains, spins, but does not agitate. Agitator coupler or timer control?


The most likely cause of this is a worn out agitator coupling. To see if this is the problem with your machine. Grasp the agitator and twist back and forth. If there is movement without turning the tub you most likely need a coupling. Reach into the washer and try to turn the agitator by hand and if you can turn it freely the agitator coupling the coupler is out and it has to be replaced. ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

No spin - agitate


Hi,

You just do this

  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drover belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the Agitator
  • Inspect the pump coupling
  • Test the Water switch level
Good luck !!!

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

GE wcxr1070a washing machine. fills with water


Check the water level switch and the plastic tubing to the switch.
Sometimes soap scum stops up the plastic hose and the water level switch does not close to send power to the timer.
If the plastic hose is good and the water level fills and stops replace the water level switch.
