Remove the fabric softener dispenser by pulling it off the agitator top then look for the prying location on the agitator cap and insert a flat-blade screwdriver between the agitator cap and the agitator then pry the cap off.

Using a socket wrench, usually 7/16", with extension, remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft then pull the agitator out.

Please indicate the make and exact model number of the washer for more accurate advice.

How to remove washing machine agitator


most agitators have a spline that glides up into sleeve , this lots of times becomes stuck if unit is a few years old , heat from a pipe thawing blower helps sometime,. but sometime they cant be saved and need to be destroyed and then replaced to get to bottom seal in drum

(wear thick gloves as even plastic gets hot enough to burn skin)

The bottom part of the agitator seems stuck. It won't spin during a normal wash cycle and it won't budge when I try to move it when it is not on.


Small garments can get caught under the bottom agitator. Disconnect power then remove the agitator cap to expose the agitator bolt. Using a small flat-head screw driver, insert it between the agitator and the cap then pry the cap off the agitator. Remove the barrier cap if present then remove the stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft using a 7/16" socket wrench with extension. Once the stud and seal are removed, lift the agitator off the shaft. You may need and extra shear of force when pulling the agitator off the shaft.

It leaves soap on the clothes after it goes thru the cycle and I noticed that the top part of the agitator doesn't move hardly. The washers model # is LSR8233JQO and the serial # is CK4729250, Type 111.


The agitator dogs (part # 80040) that grip and turn the top agitator to push the clothes into the bottom agitator during the wash cycle are worn and must be replaced. It costs about $5 and replacing it is an easy task to do.

Disconnect the power to the washer. Open the lid and remove the agitator cap by prying it with a flat-bladed screwdriver off the agitator top. Remove the 7/16 inch stud and seal holding the agitator to the shaft using a socket wrench with extension.

Lift the agitator off the shaft and pull the top agitator off the bottom agitator. Remove the cam that holds the agitator dogs from the top agitator.

Lay the cam upside down and install the agitator dogs on the slots. Hold the cam with the newly installed agitator dogs on one hand and the top agitator upside down on the other. Slide the cam up into the top agitator and turn the assembly in the upright position.

Align the cam and bottom agitator tabs and cut-outs and place the top agitator with the cam over the bottom agitator. Place the agitator assembly on the shaft and rotate it until the grooves match. Push the agitator down and reinstall the stud and seal. Do not over tighten the stud or the agitator will not spin properly.

I want to replace the aggitator but cant pull it


Some models have a fabric softener dispenser located at the top of the agitator that must be pulled off so you can get access to the fastener that holds the aggitator onto the transmission/motor shaft. Some are just pressed onto the motor shaft and after years of use, get gunked up (yep, that's the technical term for it!). You can pour some hot water down the agitator tube to help flush out the gunk and that should make it easier to remove the agitator.

Also, check along the bottom of the agitator to see if there is a small hole that might be concealing a locking set screw that is holding the agitator onto the shaft. It varies from model to model, so look all over and around the agitator before exerting any force in an attempt to pry it off the shaft.
Try to get your hands under the bottom lip of the agitator at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and try to rock it back and forth while pulling up and it should work itself free.

Just be sure you have removed any screw or hex headed fastener that could be holding the agitator onto the shaft 1st!

Oil seal


1. Remove the acorn nut, hex nut, and washer that hold the "planetary" agitator section on the transmission shaft.
2. Remove the trim ring (if any) around the same.
3. The agitator section should now be able to be worked free.
4. Remove the retainer clip on the top of the agitator shaft. (Some models have a pair of hex nuts here; if so, remove those.)
5. Pry the gear up and off the shaft. Remove the square key from the shaft keyway at the same time.
6. Tap gently on the top of the agitator shaft to drive it out from the bearings and grease seal.
7. Recommend removing and replacing the top bearing at this time; it's inexpensive to replace, if you're in this deep.
8. Use a suitable diameter piece of round steel stock to drive out the lower bearing and oil seal. I don't recommend using the agitator shaft.
9. Clean thoroughly, insert a new bottom bearing and oil seal, drive in place with a rubber mallet.
10. Replace agitator shaft through oil seal and bearing, tap gently into place.
11. Fill cavity with approved lubricant. I use USP-grade mineral oil, as it is food-safe and provides satisfactory lubricity.
11. Install top bearing, tap gently into place.
12. Reverse steps 5-1 to reassemble.

Need to replace the adgitator dogs


Nothing else needs to be removed. place the agitator on the floor, step on the sides of the bottom of the agitator, grab the top section of the agitator and pull, the sections will separate. hope this helps.
