    i now realise it is called the agitator. It is an old top loading model and on the plate it has HWA8067FW819 and then DC 587599. I want to remove the agitator. I took off the cap and there was the top of a central pin with a grooved depression in it. I could not see a bolt. I cant get my fingers under the agitator as there is not enough room, and the agitator blades and shaft taper all the way to the top. do i just keep on pulling, or is there some sort of allen key to go into the top of the metal shaft that has to be undone first?

How do I remove clothes from under agitator?

Believe it or not the agitator will come off. Look under the fabric softener cup. There should be a fastener (nut or bolt) to loosten. Give the cup a good cleaning while you have it off.
Once the nut is removed you can work the agitator off.
