Question about Washing Machines
A pair of stockings became tangled under the rotator of the washing machine. How do you take the centre 'agitator' thingy out so we can untangle the tights?

Have you removed the front panel?
If not remove front panel two screws 5/16 on bottom
Start the washer in a cycle. look with a flash lite and look for leak.
It maybe the rubber boot.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
I will also need model number, because a AWS52NW is a top loader model number not a front loader.

You should be able to unscrew the top cap of the agitator ( may be left hand thread ) and lift off the agitator once the cap is off... They sometimes stick so you may have to muscle it to remove that cap..once lifted off..you should be able to untangle the string that is caught..

SOURCE: necklace stuck in washer
Hold the bottom part of the Agitator,(The part that you are talking about),Undo the very top part in an anti-clockwise direction and it will come right off.Use a wrench to remove the nut on the top of the agitator and then lift it right out,you may need to move it from right to left.You will now be able to remove the necklace.Replace the Agitator the reverse of removal.

there is a bolt under the fabric softner dispenser (if you have one) if not, its a plastic cap on the top of your agitator which pops off by hand or a butter knife.. then there is a bolt under there that holds the unit down..grap the bottom of your agitator and loosen the bolt and remove it...then lift up carefully on the whole thing..careful not to loose the seal and bolt to put the agitator back in place....good luck..

WEll, hard to know with no brand specified, but usually the agitator can be removed by unscrewing a retainer bolt, typically under some cap at the top of the agitator itself.

Remove the rinse dispenser from the top of the agitator (spinning deal). Unscrew the agitator cap located on top of the agitator which is only hand tightened. Once the plastic agitator cap is removed from the top of the agitator you should see a screw which you will need a socket or an adjustable wrench to remove the screw. The agitator can now be removed by lifting strait up to free the sleeve. My only concern is how the sleeve became lodged under the agitator unless the tub became unbalanced from a heavy load. The other possibility could be the support for the tub is broken and needs to be replaced.
