On the top of the agitator is the fabric softener cup, pull this off. Underneath you should be able to see all the way to the bottom, There will be a small bolt (I think that it is a 9/16), remove this bolt(you will need a ratchet wrench with a long extension and socket) and the agitator will pull straight up and off.

How do i remove the agitator ??


Various makes and models differ in how the agitator is removed. In some newer models, the agitator just lifts straight up and out. However, in most models you will have to do some combination of the following steps. First remove the fabric softener dispenser, if any. It should either lift or screw off. Next remove the cap. It may lift off, screw off or failing that, it may need to be pried off.
Beneath the cap some agitators are secured in place by a bolt. Use a socket wrench with an extension to remove that bolt. Some washer may have a screw near to the bottom of the agitator post that must be removed. Now try to lift the agitator straight up, possibly with a little back and forth rocking motion. Use caution when pulling, the agitator may come loose suddenly and hit you in the face or send you flying backward.
If the agitator is particularly stubborn, you can loop some rope under one side of the agitator at the bottom and then up over a broom handle. Now loop it again under the other side of the agitator and back up to the broom. Brace one end of the broom handle against the top of the washer and lift up on the other end. Double check that you have removed anything that may be securing the agitator in place. Do not use too much force or you may damage the washer cabinet, agitator or injure yourself.

Need to remove agitator because clothing is caught underneath


To remove the agitator on most Maytag models, you remove the center post cap or softener dispenser on the agitator and locate the agitator bolt underneath. Remove the bolt and pull the entire agitator straight up. If this does not match your washer configuration, please post back with a model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

How can I remove the agitator on a premier 510 model


Hi,
Before removing the agitator, unplug the washer to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The agitator is fastened to the agitator shaft and its movement is driven either by splines or a simple clutch assembly. The splines are usually plastic or rubber nubs on a cylinder that fits over the agitator shaft. If the nubs wear down, the shaft will not turn properly or it will turn weakly. If the agitator is moving in only one direction, the likely cause is the clutch assembly. The clutch has dogs that depress and pop up with each turn. If those dogs are worn, they will not engage properly and the agitator will turn only in one direction.

How do you tighten or remove the agitator?


Hi,
Please follow the steps bellow to remove or open the agitator. It would be highly appreciated if you could mention the make or model of the washing machine.
Unscrew the agitator cap.
Pull up on the agitator.
Fill the tub halfway with hot water if it won't come loose. Sometimes the heat helps release it.
Tap on a small block of wood pressed up against the top of the agitator if it still won't release.
Replace the old one with a new agitator of the same model.

Kenmore Washer Model #82881110


Remove the dispenser cap by pulling it straight up. Under the dispenser cap, there may be another cap. If so, remove the center cap exposing the agitator bolt. Using a socket and ratchet remove the agitator bolt and the top half of the agitator can be lifted out as one piece. With the top portion of the agitator removed, grasp the lower agitator by the bottom flanges and pull straight up. The remaining section should lift off the center post. For a helpful illustration of what I'm talking about, go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number as "110.82881110". Go to the "Agitator, Basket and Tub" heading. There's an exploded view illustration of the agitator and all the components. If you require parts, all the part number and pricing information is available, as well. I hope this helps you.

PS When re-installing the agitator DO NOT over tighten the agitator bolt. This can cause damage to the agitator and create slow rotation problems. Just make sure you tighten the bolt snug, and then give it about a 1/4 turn.

I have a foul smell comming from my washer I want to try to take off the agitator and clean it How? :)


It depends on what model Maytag washer you have. If you have an Atlantis or Performa model Maytag you remove the agitator by, first, pulling the agitator cap and softener dispenser off. Locate the bolt on the center post and and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. If this is a Dependable Care model Maytag, there's a 1/4 inch screw located on the SIDE of the agitator about 3 quarters of the way down. Locate this screw and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. I hope this helps you.
