You need to Remove Agitator.To remove the agitator just grab to the top 4 inches and pull up--- there will be a cap down in the middle with a handle--- use a pliers to pull the cap up--- this will expose a 3/8" bolt. Remove the bolt and the entire agitator will pull straight up.

The above one is a Generic Procedure for all New GE Washers. In case, it would not help, get back to me with the Make and Model of the Washer.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do i remove the agitator from a GE G154 washer

I stood in the big basket and pulled up on the agitator and it came out. My tights were wound around the post underneath...would've never come out if I wouldn't have removed the agitator. 3rd pair of tights ruined! Also had a camisole do the same. I wouldn't advise buying this washer....I now have to hand wash tights, bras, and camisoles. The agitator went back fairly easy...altho on the second try, I think I had it positioned just right...?...phew!

How do i remove the agitator to remove a tangled drawstring

To remove the agitator you need to unscrew the cap on top of the agitator. With the cap off, pull straight up on the agitator; it should lift off. If it doesn't move, rap its side with a hammer. If it still won't lift off, drive wedges under the bottom rim of the agitator to dislodge it. Then set the new agitator if you want and replace the agitator cap.

Note: Damage to the snubbed, a pad like device sometimes located under the agitator cap, can cause the machine to vibrate excessively. Check to see if wet laundry is wadded around the bottom of the tub shaft, or under the basket or agitator assembly. Remove the basket or agitator in order to remove the laundry easily.

A robe's long thin tying cord disappeared in the machine. It could be wound around the agitator shaft. How to look for it?

More than likely, it is in the water pump. Tip your washer back and remove the pump. It is held on by two clips and that will avoid you having problems with the pump very soon.

A pair of hose is wound around the bottom of the agitator.

Those are probably the hose which connects basket and pump and the drain hose. They can be replaced quite easily and it is not expensive repair.

with the exeption of something you mistakenly left in your clothing and wound up in the washer, not likely stains are from there , most of the time they do come from the dryer, try grabbin an old white rag nad runnig it around hte fron of hte dryer drum and then tyr the rear where the drum meets the back bulkhead. usually leavs brownish streks smome what curved 2-3 inches log. its from hte felt hte supposed to seal the drum. its either wearing thin, or a glide has worn away causing the issue
