Question about Frigidaire GSTF1670A Front Load Washer
I just need to remove the agitator from my washing machine. I took the cap off, expecting to see a nut that I could remove to get the agitator off, but there is no nut. It appears to be just stuck on the spindle, but I can't pull it off. I tried wedging the bottom up, twisting, pulling, turning, hammering on it... but it won't come off. Is there a special tool I need, or something that I'm not seeing?
Remove the screw holding it down with a 1/4 inch nut driver.Look at the agitator from above and you will see a hole ,there is 1 only.Once you find tha follow from the hole up until you find the set screw and remove it

Ok here's a trick i learned from my instructors for removing stuck agitators try at own risk first it looks like there there may be a set screw from looking at the part on web looks like it may be just slightly under where the tube ends and the vanes start im going to give you a web site http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/smartsearch.aspx so you can look just enter your mod num and click agitator you will see what i mean but im not there so you will have to judge ok here's the trick put a stick across the top of the tub so one end is sticking out longer than the other get two pieces of rope and run them under the agitator and over the stick tie down as tight as you can then slide the rope up as close to the middle of the agitator as you can and jerk up on long side of stick let me know if this helps 17

Tips for a great answer:
1 First you must determine the brand of washing machine you have.
Maytag and Admiral washers are very similar to remove. General Electric, (GE) is different, To remove a GE agitator simply pull upwards very hard, GE agitators snap on. Be careful not to pop it into your mouth, that really hurts.
