Yes thanks, hopefully I have solved my problem. Could not get a socket small enough. So my Son, who is a boiler maker has grinded down a 10mm socket. So fingers crossed it works. Thanks for responding.

How to remove agitator from Simpson 750 esprit


Look down inside the agitator. At the bottom is a hexagonal bolt. You need a 10mm socket on a long extension bar to reach it and undo it. Then pull agitator up & out.

I want to remove the Agitator. User Manual says 10mm bolt inside Agitator. But it doesn't Undo or Tighten- DOESN'T feel like its stripped -Could Drive shaft just be turning with bolt? Ron


You will have to hold the shaft underneath while you turn it, most likely it came a bit loose, but is rusted holding to he shaft, but no longer to the agitator.

I have a Kenmore Elite top load washer, model # 110.16972500. I got a shoelace cought under the agitator.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Take a look at this link so you can see what parts secure your agitator in place:

Also see this link for item number descriptions:

You have to lift off the cap (Item 1) and then the inner cap & washer (Items 22 and 23) to get to the mounting bolt item 21. You will have to use a socket and an extension to remove the agitator mouting bolt. After removing the mounting bolt you should be able to lift the agitator to free the shoe lace. Re-assemble in reverse order. Mounting bolt... inner cap and washer... then the top cap.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How do you remove the agitator from a Simpson Genesis 505 washing machine


Remove the link trap/Fabric Softener dispenser from the middle. You will then need a 10mm Socket and a long extension (or 2), undo the bolt in the bottom an the give the agitator a good pull (they can be REALLY tight) if the agitator still won't move put some really hot water into the machine until it covers where the bolt is/was and leave for 5 mins then try again.

How do I remove the agitator in a Hoover 500MD machine?


Most Hoovers have a 10mm bolt down inside the agitator. Remove the fabric softener dispenser from the top of the agitator, and look down the centre of agitator. You need a long extension socket to undo the bolt (anticlockwise). Be careful not to turn bolt too hard- sometimes the bolt is seized where it goes into top of gearbox, and if you turn bolt too hard, you can break the bolt. Once bolt is removed, agitator just pulls straight out

Kenmore Elite 23012 - 23014 mfg in 01 wont spin


Once the top cap of the agitator is removed, take a pair of pliers and pull up forcefully on the plastic cap inside. Then take a 7/16 socket wrench and remove the agitator bolt. Pull the agitator apart. Get part number 3366877 from any appliance parts store.

Sounds like the agitator securing bolt is missing and what you see is the remaining washer (" a plate with a hole in"), if the bolt is missing the agitator should simply lift up to remove, the securing bolt is a 10mm x 40mm should do the job, you will need a 17mm socket and long extension to refit the securing bolt.

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.
