I believe all you have to do is put your fingers underneath the bottom of the agitator and pull up and the whole agitator pops up to remove it out of the tub.

I cant lift trhe bottom aggitate plate in my hmwm8000 i have removed the cap and phillips head screw how tov lift the plate?


there should be a bolt holding aggitator on spines,if not try grabbing aggitator and pulling up while rocking aggitator back and forth it will require a great amount of force to remove aggitator fron splined shaft,also so penatrating spray may help sprayed on splined shaft.It also may need to be cleaned around splined shaft to clean built up soap build up. also a haet gun or a hair dryer on high heat on top of aggitator shaft when trying to remove may help!

Installation is:

Maytag Washer Model SAV405DEWW How do I remove the agitator from its shaft. It lifts only about 1/4 inch and then stops.


If you remove the fabric softener cap (just twists off ) their is a bolt securing the agitator to the the transmission,sometimes even after removing this bolt it can be tight on the shaft.. try slipping a belt under the agitator and grab from each side which gives you more to grab a hold of and pull straight up... Hope this helps....

Fabric softener dispencer not working properly, we are getting softener stains on our clothes. at the end of the cycle, there is undiltued softener in the bottom of the drum.


I just had this problem with our 5 year old Atlantis. The key I found was to lift the fabric despenser off. Then you will need to clean it really well. It get builfd up of the Fabirc softner over time. You wil also need to clean the interior of the agitator which will be easy after you have the dispenser off. I used a flat head crew driver and light scraped all the "Gunk" off the inside of the agitator. Take your time and get it as clean as possible all the way down to the bolt that hold the agitiator on. After you are all clean run a hot water load and disefect with a bit of bleach in the dispenser. Put the agitator back on and it should be solved. You will be amazed and possibly grossed out at how much stuff you clean out of it.

I want to replace the aggitator but cant pull it


Some models have a fabric softener dispenser located at the top of the agitator that must be pulled off so you can get access to the fastener that holds the aggitator onto the transmission/motor shaft. Some are just pressed onto the motor shaft and after years of use, get gunked up (yep, that's the technical term for it!). You can pour some hot water down the agitator tube to help flush out the gunk and that should make it easier to remove the agitator.

Also, check along the bottom of the agitator to see if there is a small hole that might be concealing a locking set screw that is holding the agitator onto the shaft. It varies from model to model, so look all over and around the agitator before exerting any force in an attempt to pry it off the shaft.
Try to get your hands under the bottom lip of the agitator at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions and try to rock it back and forth while pulling up and it should work itself free.

Just be sure you have removed any screw or hex headed fastener that could be holding the agitator onto the shaft 1st!

How do you remove the agitator on a Maytag Dependable Care Washer?


If this is a Maytag Performa or Atlantis model all you have to do is remove the center cap on the agitator by pulling on it and locate the agitator bolt underneath. Loosen the bolt, and the agitator should pull straight up.

If this is a Maytag Dependable Care series there will be 1/4 inch screw along the side of the agitator towards the bottom. Remove this screw and the agitator will pull straight up.

I hope this helps you.

PS If the problem is due to the build up of fabric softener, soak in some hot water to loosen it up. Fabric softener is essentially a form of liquid wax and it is common for it to accumulate and clog the dispenser in this manner. Periodic cleaning is recommended.
