Hi I've got a bosch 36 vf li and I'm struggling to open it up to change brushes. I've undone all visible screws but still struggling with top part of unit.


Have you removed the 4 gearbox screws? the cover should lift off. sometimes if a brush holder has over heated then the two halves get stuck together in places.

I have a sheet stuck under the agitator of my GE gtwn3000mws. I've tried to use leverage to brute force the agitator out and it was a no go. Then I took off the top cup looking for the bolt to r


Remove the fabric softener cup, remove the plastic insert, then there is a 7/16th bolt you need to remove and the agitator will lift out.
Here is a diagram of the tub assembly.

Service manual for Matsui M22DVDB19 please


I've done this! I was stuck in exactly the same position. You need to peel back the piece of plastic labelling all the sockets etc. There is one final screw in the centre under there.

Hope this isn't too late!

My sleve is stuck in the spinning deal of my washer, how do i get it out?


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.

Coin stuck in agitator. how is agitator removed


Normally you can take the top of the agitator off with the use of a screw driver or by turning couter clockwise. Once the top is off you should see a nut or bolt. Removing this will allow the agitator to be removed.

How do i remove the loose change trapped under the agitator ?


you'll need to remove the agitator to do that usually. fairly easy to do. the centre piece at the top unscrews (very often it will require you turning it the opposite way you would normally untighten something) remove that then lift it up. there is one other way but you need to be very lucky. some coins will react to a magnet. you may be able to get them out that way tho the whole basin is metal so not as likely.

I have a LG WM2016CW washing machine and there is change (penny,nickle,dimes ect.)stuck in the drum some were, how do i get them out?


You said "stuck" in the drum somewhere? Like under the agitator vanes? You should be able to take the lid off the agitator, it should either clip in or have a screw holding it on, and there you will see the nut, or keeper that holds the agitator on the motor shaft. Remove that clip or nut and you can lift the agitator out of the washer. From there you will see all of the wash drum and should be able to remove any foreign objects. If these "coins" are between the inner and outer tub, then you will have to remove both the top cover and lid, and remove the agitator and the inner drum to get to the outer drum in order to reach these objects. Not a hard job, but it will take you a little while. You could try reaching with your fingers around the agitator bottom and see if you can "feel" the coins or objects and possible use a small brush or stick or popsicle stick to move them out so that you can reach them, Kinda like "fishing" under the refrigerator or the couch. In the alternative, you could enlist four friends and unhook the washer from the water supply and the electric, and turn it upside down and try to shake the coins or objects out the top of the drum. Tilting the machine to one side will let them fall to the cabinet sides and possibly drop out the bottom when it is uprighted. Now I know why Mom always "checked" my pockets before she washed Dad and my clothes. We left a little of everything in there, from time to time. Good Luck with this.

Clothing stuck under the agitator


Hold the agitator steady and the very top end will screw off. If very old it will be stuck pretty tight, but do not break it. Then the agitator will lift straight up.

From the sounds of things, you are talking about a front loading dryer. The agitators in the dryer can get coins stuck inside them. Remove the top and rotate the drum to reveal the screws which hold the agitators to the drum. Remove the screws and the agitators, empty the coins or other debris and reinstall.

The loud squeal sounds like the pad under the open side of the drum is worn out. There may also be a dry main bearing in the rear of the dryer. Lubricate the bearing and reinstall the drum. The squeal should disappear.

If this is not a dryer or a front loading washer, none of these suggestions will apply, Sorry
