    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."

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.

Caught string


OK you can remove thr tumbler with a Number 20 Torx driver. The FAV6800A/9800A Service Manual does not call out the torx driver size. Page 37 of the SM will take you thru the process. Let us know if you have any questions. Rich

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.
