    It was fixed and we are satisfied, but from what I could assume, it took a special wrench the nut mentioned. lw

Check on the top of the agitator for a cap to uncover a screw or bolt to remove the agitator, if not you may need to unsrew part of the top of the agitator.
Either way if you can remove what is attaching the agitator, pull it up and out, then the pants should come out.

Why does whirlpool washer wtw6200vwd twist pant leg and sleves!


It's an inherent problem with this washer due to the designed movement of the agitator. My wife had the same problem. We solved this and the multitude of other problems we had with this washer by going to home depot and buying the cheapest washer they had. Told the rep we wanted a washer with no computer, no special cleaning agitation designs, etc. He said "you want this one". we bought it, they delivered it and we now have cleaner clothes and no twisted sleeves, pant legs, error messages. When they were ready to leave they ask my wife if she wanted to keep the old washer or wanted them to haul it away. Her response was "I never want to see that thing again."

Sprocket cover keeps breaking off because my pant leg gets caught in it and front deerailer snags the chain.


You could wear shorts, roll up your cuff or otherwise secure it so it won't snag on the known hazard.

Derailleur adjustment may solve the other problem.

The leg of a pair of jeans is caught under the agitator and the whole thing is just plain stuck.


Hi, Here is a picture of the agitator and the block that it locks on to. The agitator pulls up very hard. I use a belt and slide it under the agitator. Then I use a board or pipe and loop it through the belt and pry the agitator up.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Laundry is trapped under the base of the agitator.


Im not very familiar with that type of top loadign washer,,, but on most agitators there is a bolt that runs down the center of the agitator, connecting it to the transmission/gearbox. Usually there is a cap, or softner dispenser that can be pulled off, revealing this bolt.

Cant hem unable to workout what length to start with to end up with the correct length required looking at the manual it says to take the hem and fold it over etc. but its very confusing


Sorry, I don't understand just what you mean by "length to start". Length of what - stitch? hem turn-up?
Let us assume you are taking up a hem of a pair of pants. Try them on and put a pin where you want the hem to finish i.e. this will be the bottom of the pants. Take pants off, turn them inside out (careful that your pin does not fall out!) and fold the excess pants on that pin mark. The excess fabric should be on the outside, not tucked inside the leg tunnel. Measure how much it is from the existing hem to where you folded it over, let us say for the purposes of this exercise it is 4 inches. Your hem is to be 1 inch and you need 1/2 inch to turn under for a neat finish, total 1 1/2 inches, so you need to cut off 2 1/2 inches from the bottom of each pants leg. Fold 1/2inch at new leg bottom (wrong side of fabric to wrong side), press, fold 1 inch hem same way and press. Place pins every 2inches or so at a right angle to the hem edge. Pins should come out 1/4inch from edge of hem where the 1/2inch neatening fold was made (this is where I wish I could draw a picture!). Fold the hem back inside the leg tunnel. The pins should make the fabric fold under only enough so that 1/4inch of the hem sticks out beyond the pants leg. You will sew on this bit using the blind hem stitch (04 on my 7550). You might need to adjust the stitch width - not length - so that the straight part of the stitch goes along the hem bit and the zig-zag JUST bites into the pants leg fabric.
I do hope this lengthy explanation is of some use to you!
