Question about Washing Machines
I've removed the cap from the top of the agitator (no comfort dispenser) and can access the bolt, but when i try and loosen it, it just spins anticlockwise with a slight grinding noise. Basically i can't get a purchase on the bolt to remove it, as it seems to be spinning independent of the upper and lower agitator parts. However, when the machine is in wash mode, i can observe the agitator bolt performing the slow clockwise (agitation) motion but it isn't moving the upper agitator and so the clothes are just sitting in standing water.
Any idea how i can get this sucker off? I'm pretty certain i have to replace the clutch dog ears and maybe the cam but i don't know how to get the agitator off without resorting to turning the washer upside down and getting at it from the bottom of the drum...any ideas?
I think that the agatator may have a screw in the side of it nearer the bottom stem if so slacken off and pull ajatator off main shaft
if no screw just pull agatator off
sometimes takes a bit to get off
do not turn machine upside down

Tips for a great answer:
Pull the liquid softener dispenser off the top of the agitator. Pull the clear plastic cap out of the center of the agitator. Use a ratchet and socket set to remove the hex head bolt from the center of the agitator. Lift the top half of the agitator out of the washer. Pull the bottom half of the agitator straight up to remove it from the drive motor shaft, and remove the bottom half of the agitator from the Cabrio washer.
