Question about Washing Machines
I have an older moder eaton viking washing machine (duo wash system, heavy duty) and it has sucked a shirt under the agitator and I can't get it out. I was wondering if there is a way to lift the agitator to get the shirt out without breaking the machine.
Any assistance with this would be great.
Usually on these machines on the very top of the agitator is a snap-on lid, usually for adding bleach or fabric softener. Unsnap this lid and lift from the top of the agitator. Look down the hole and you should see some kind of nut or screw. Remove this item (make note as to how tight it is JUST AFTER it breaks free). Once this is removed, you should be able to lift the agitator out of the machine. Remove your shirt, and replace the agitator. Replace the nut or screw previously removed, and tighten approximately as tight as it was when removed. Don't over tighten. Replace snap-on lid.
With the unit apart, now might be a good time to clean any accumulated dirt or other foreign material.
