How do I remove clothes from under agitator?


Believe it or not the agitator will come off. Look under the fabric softener cup. There should be a fastener (nut or bolt) to loosten. Give the cup a good cleaning while you have it off.
Once the nut is removed you can work the agitator off.

Fabric softener ends up around rim of washer.


When you say you've cleaned both parts - have you poured hot water in and seen it actually drain out of the top peice while it was removed from the agitator? Have you poured hot water into the agitator with the top peice removed and seen it drain out of the holes? If not, repeated flushing (of the agitator) and soaking (of the top peice) with hot water as needed until is drains may be required. Until you can get water to drain out of both peices alone, it will work automatically. Once you have the water draining try again with a regular load of laundry and fabric softener. If it still doesn't work...

Since you've cleaned both parts (the non-removable and removeable top portion) of the agitator - it would suggest that the fabric softener dispenser's actuator inside the agitator is not functioning properly. The fabric softener isn't being released in the rinse (or at all really) and as a result of the centrifugal forces during the high speed spin cycle - it is causes the fabric softener to move up the sides of the dispenser and spray out of the top of the agitator onto the rim. This may be caused a mechanical or electrical failure in the washer or washer control. It will continue to work like this until it is fixed - so I suggest that you do not use the dispenser.

You will likely need to have the washer professionally serviced to have it begin working again. You can save the repair costs and either add the fabric softener yourself during the rinse cycle - or use "dryer sheets" in the dryer instead.

Good luck!

How to add fabric softner to the amana washer with locking lid


Check and see if there is a cup in the top of the agitator. Some machines have you put it there, turning back and forth during wash doesn't bother it, but the spin to empty the wash water causes the softener to go out through slots in the top of the cup and be held in the agitator. when it stops the softener drains into the tub, ready for the rinse cycle.

I have an older Maytag washer without a user manual and was wondering if the cup in the top of the agitator was for adding fabric softener? If it is when do I add it and how much do I add? The model number...


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-A9200/3048/0153200/X2900731/00005?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= I thinking you are referring to item 7 which is listed as a dispensing cup. If I remember right it just sits on the agitator as a means to take off and use to measure soap, fabric softener. Since there is not a water flush line to it, I wouldn't use it to try to dispense the fabric softner. But it probably would do any harm to try it and see how much was actually left in the cup.

KitchenAid Stylemaster 622784 cleaning the fabric softener dispenser. I can't get the fabric softener apart to clean it. I don't have a manual. I bought it, used, with no manual. Suggestions?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Remove the dispenser and spray with white vinegar. Then spray the agitator with it too. You can pretty much wipe it right out. Vinegar dissolves softener very quickly. The dispenser just wash out with warm water after the vinegar sits on it for a minute, and you hardly have to wipe at it at all. try adding bleach to the dispenser and clean it with a small brush.

The dispenser will pull off from the agitator and you can run hot water in it from the sink. The agitator is not as easy but has a 1/2" bolt holding it to the shaft. remove the bolt and pull up. but you can clean the whole washer with a cup of bleach and that will also clean the agitator. Now run a full tub of hot water and then add a cup of bleach with no soap. After the washer has filled up, then add another gallon of hot water and that will help to rinse out the residues that cause odors. then after that dont use too much soap and you wont have residue build up. Only use the smallest amount of soap that the cup has marked in it.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Cant remove agitator. Fabric softener cap is off but i do not see a screw or bolt to remove the assembly. agitator is only weakly working


There should be a 7/16 bolt in the bottom of the cup once you have taken the cup out. Its kinda deep you would need a longer extension. Also this agitator bolt usually has a gasket material attached to it and it may be covered by another cap.

Gunk in middle of agitator


the fabric softener spins out of the cup after the wash cycle when spinning the water out of clothes, then the washer fills back up for the rinse w/ your softener having been dispensed. is there a nut at the bottom of your agitator where you see the gunk? If so you can take the agitator out by removing the nut but be careful of the little parts that make the agitator agitate. Do not disturb these little parts if you don't know about them. Does the gunk smell like grease or a mechanics garage? If so chances are it is a lubricant and should not be removed replace the cap and your softener cup and continue enjoying your machine.

My washer smells horrible. I know why, but not how to fix it. Help!


there is a bolt in the center of the spindle. Pull the fabric softener cap off to expose the center of the spindle and unscrew the bolt. you will nee an extenstion on the ratchet to reach the bolt. You will have to clean this every 2 months. I know--It sucks!.. I'm there myself.

Fabric softener doesn't dispense


Fabric softener dispensers are notorious for getting all gummed up and clogged. Remove the dispenser cup and soak in some hot water to dissolve all residue. While you have the dispenser removed check under the dispenser cap in the agitator for gummy residue as well. Clean with hot water. There should also be an agitator seal cap under the dispenser. Make sure the cap and rubber o-ring are seated properly. Last of all, if the dispenser has a cone shaped cup inside, make sure it is inserted cone-side UP. The cup is designed to allow fabric softener to roll down the sides of it, NOT hold it. I hope this helps.
