How to remove agitator


That is a very old GE model. There may be a screw under the agitator cap which needs to be pried off. Even with the screw removed the agitator usually rusts or bonds to the transmission top. GE had a special pulling tool that was a metal ring that fit over the agitator with 3 set screws in it that you had to screw into the outer plastic of the agitator. A gear puller was then needed to pull the agitator off. Don't know if its worth it considering the age of the machine.

I received information about how to fix my agitator not working on my GE washer. But now I need info on how to get to the agitator. My model WWA8955 is different from any other GE top loading washers...


Oops sorry about that my fault for not searching parts on your model befroe answering. What i wrote about is what ge has made for the past 10 years or so your washer is very old!
to remove that agitator which doesnt use that part i talked about (sorry) so what you do it remove the bolt from top of inner agaitator and pull that agaitaor off. ITs been on thier for 15 or more years and will take some tugging perhaps and if lucky will come out right away after bolt removed. on the inside of the top of that inner agitator will be a coupler that works similar to the one if the vid. i showed you. that coupler needs to be knocked out and replace the spline coupler. Need to check though if center shaft of transmission is stripped before ordering and replacing that spline if the transmission is ground down the transmission would need to be replaced however since its so old the part is no longer available..
The part number for that spilne is WH1X2641
once again i apoligize for thinks it was less that 15 years old

Water is draining very slowly out of the washer and if it takes to long it gives a code of DR


Hi

It seems that something is stuck and you'll have to remove the agitator to clean it. I f 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 up hard...picture. You can also clean the drain hose as that might be clogged if the agitator is fine. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Agitator does not turn in my GE washer, it is 3 years old


Sounds like the agitator dogs have aged and broken apart. these are easy fixes at about 5.00- 10.00 and require the removal of the one bolt that holds the agitator down. After confirming this, take your washer model number and make to parts store and get replacement dogs. Hope this hepls..

Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it from the shaft. Check the agitator mounting cup underneath it is probably stripped out. It is a replaceable part.
If the agitator is difficult to pull up,use a old strong leather belt under the agitator and pull it off using the belt.

HOW TO REMOVE AGITATOR ON A HOT POINT WASHER


if anyone is still doing this.. i had a hotpoint model type vbxr1060. It had just a cap on agitator no extra bolts and used two hammers to get underneath the base creating leverage..

Work both hammers in (using the nail puller side) as far as possible towards the center of the agitator on opposing sides and use them to pull up and slightly outwards towards the sides of the basin. When you get it off you will see why this works as the agitator's base has mini clips that grasp the base of the air bell housing. hope this tip helps someone.
