SOURCE: agitator problem on ALW780QAW Amana

I have this same model and although I'm not sure what your problem could be, I do know how to remove the agitator. Get a new repair guy because you just pull up on the agitator to remove it. It is just pressed onto a cogged drive at the bottom. I read on the Internet somewhere that if you do lots of heavy loads, the agitator can slip on the metal cogged drive. So I would suggest that you pull straight up on the agitator and clean off the cogged drive and inspect the underside of the agitator to see if the corresponding grooves are worn down from slipping. You might run a cycle with the agitator out and see if the cogged drive is turning.

Hi

It seems that something is stuck and you'll have to remove the agitator to clean it. If this is an old style washer, then it should have a bolt under the cap that must be removed to remove the agitator, then grab hold of the agitator and lift up. If it's a not too old then the agitator just pulls out, remove cap, if no bolt, just grab hold and lift it up hard... see the picture. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

How do you remove the agitator on amana washer model lwa30aw


Unplug the Amana washing machine from the wall outlet, and open the lid. Pull the liquid fabric softener dispenser straight off of the top of the agitator. Some Maytag washers require the use of a flat head screwdriver inserted between the dispenser and the top of the agitator. Twist the handle of the screwdriver to pop the dispenser off of the agitator.

Remove the barrier cap inside the agitator using your hands. Pull the barrier cap straight out of the agitator. There is an O-ring that attaches to the outside of the barrier cap. If it did not come out with the cap, pull the O-ring out of the center of the agitator.

Remove the bolt securing the agitator to the drive bell with the socket wrench. The bolt is inside the center of the agitator.

Place your fingers in between the bottom of the agitator and the tub. Lift straight up to remove the agitator from the tub. Keep your head out of the way in case the agitator is stuck and unexpectedly releases. If necessary, use agitator hooks. Insert them under the agitator and push down on the hooks to release the agitator.

I've had an Amana Washer model ALW880QAW for about 6 yrs. Recently I've noticed old clumps of old detergent and fabric softener in the wash. I've already cleaned the fabric softener dispenser but the...


I couldn't wait for a rely on my posted question on March 6,2009. I was able to ask around to figure out how to clean this up. This Amana washer model has an agitator that is just clipped on. I just got my fingers underneath the agitator and pulled it off. After getting the agitator off, I was able to clean all of the old built up detergent and fabric softner with some old fashion scrubbing. Then I used some CLR to get what ever I missed. I pushed the agitator back until it clicked back into place and ran one washing cylce to clean things up.....Works great....No more old clumpy stuff showing up in the wash....

I need to remove the agitator from my washing machine.


On most Amana washers you pull on the agitator with brute force. It "snaps" on. It helps if you fill the washer with hot water and let it set for a few minutes... drain and then try pulling it out. When i last took apart my Amana it took me and a friend to pull the agitator off.

How do I remove the agitator on model alw880qac


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.
