Sm8280871 washer. How do you take agitator out?

Are you sure this is a model number? It looks more like a Serial number. Model should be on a tag with serial number. Usually starts with letters then about 4 numbers and more letters. Providing that would likely get you better assistance.

You will need to hook something in the hole the bolt was in and pull real hard. the agitator coupler is still in the agitatorif you notice there are plastic fingers around the coupler and you can pry those back a little to aid in your getting the coupler out.

Hi, how do i get change out from under the agitator? Is there a way to get it out? Is there something down there that collects all the stuff that falls in there? Please and thank you.

You have to pull the agitator. It is a pressed fitting, meaning that you will need to carefully pry on the bottom while pulling up on the agitator. It will pop off, then you can retrieve your items. There is not a collection can or anything like that. Please rate

Washer won't agitate

First, see the Sears parts site for washer model # 110.22952100 which I believe is your model.!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22952100+

Look at the section containing the agitator and you should see how the parts fit.

Also see the following for an illustrated description of replacing the "dogs"

Shoestrings wrapped under agitator

You will have to remove the agitator. Remove the softener dispenser from the top of the agitator and when you look down the agitator, you will see a 10mm stainless steel bolt. You will need to remove this bolt to remove the agitator. If there is no bolt, try pulling the agitator up and out.
