GE Old Style Washer: Remove agitator cap by pulling it off and look for a bolt, remove the bolt and pull up hard on the agitator. Not all models of this style washer has a retaining bolt.
GE New Style Washer: Use a old dryer belt or rope to help remove the agitator. Hook the rope/belt under the lower agitator fins and make the loops to the top. Use a board to help “pop” up the agitator, lift up on the side of the board that is sticking out further.

Pantyhose stuckl around agitator on my ge model g142


The agitator does pop off. I found that instead of using a screw driver to 'pop' it off with one swift motion, it worked better to work my fingers underneath the agitator and shimmy it off going back and forth in short movements form left to right.

Won't agitat under agitator yellow coupling held by 7/16 bolt should this spin freely or does this mean its stripped


it probably means that it's stripped. it grips the spine and allows movement of the agitator. the transmission shaft may be rotating back and forth, but the agitator doesnt move properly. i would remove the coupling and take a look underneath it to see if it's stripped.

The aggitator slips


t's supposed to be that way. If you could pull it up whenever you wanted, what would keep it from flying off during a wash cycle? The agitator is loosened from a bolt underneath the wash basket. Do not try that or you could damage the washer. Only a repairman or someone who has worked on washers should do that. Only if you had an article fall apart in the washer (a rug, feather pillow, etc.) should that area truly need cleaning. Call any GE repair shop. If this is under warranty and you have ( as shown ) the model #...........a repair inspector can fix this washer free. Have all your place of purchase documents with you. The agitator's movement back and forth is important for the cleaning of your laundry. If it doesn't function properly, your clothes won't be as clean as possible. If your agitator does not move, moves only in one direction or its movement is very weak, you will probably need to remove the agitator. Furthermore, in order to inspect the tub for leaks, the clutch assembly, the splines, or to remove the spin drum, you will have to remove the agitator.

My top load GE fills, drains, spins, but does not agitate. Agitator coupler or timer control?


The most likely cause of this is a worn out agitator coupling. To see if this is the problem with your machine. Grasp the agitator and twist back and forth. If there is movement without turning the tub you most likely need a coupling. Reach into the washer and try to turn the agitator by hand and if you can turn it freely the agitator coupling the coupler is out and it has to be replaced. ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Agitator is loose


Does the plastic cap unscrew (CCW)? If you get it off, there is a plastic block attached to the top of the shaft that should just pull off. Check it for cracking or splines that are torn out inside--replace it if damaged. Make sure the cap screws down tight.

How do you remove agitator off of a GE Prodigy


Hi. The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly, which is removable as well. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.

Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to preform a combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.

Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some Maytags may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.

If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.

I have a GE washer that will not agitate. The washer thinks it is agitating and goes through the cycle. The drum turns but the agitator doesn't. What could be wrong with it and how hard is it to fix?


Pull the agitator off and check the plastic block attached to the shaft top. Is it split or has sheared splines inside it? Remove the mounting screw to expose the shaft. Does it turn back and forth when it should be agitating? If no, possible transmission problems.
