Just a newbee. Not sure how to submit new post, so I have started from here.
All I am wanting to know, is how to remove the agitator from inside the bowl so I can clean it out.
Hope someone can help!
Thank you for your time.
I have the same washer and the paint started to flake from the bottom of the bowl. Rust under the baked enamel made it lift. I peeled the loose paint then applied rust converter and a zinc paint. This patch is still ok after 12 months but my wife is complaining about paint flakes and rust on some clothes. In my opinion, the only way to remove the agitator is to undo the nuts retaining the shaft from the inside. I guess I will find patches of rust under the agitator and depending on how big and deep they are will determine if I replace the machine or patch the rust.

When you remove the sump plug to drain the oil you should always use a new copper washer gasket to seal it properly. If you have stripped the thread then there over size sump plugs available and a thread tap to suit the new size so no big deal really Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cells.
The 600MB agitator is held on by a 10mm bolt only.Not sure about the plastic part that you are describing.
All you need to do is pull the stem out (the big bit with the filter on the bottom), then unscrew the bolt from the top with a 10mm socket and ratchet (with nice long extensions), and lift the agitator off (it may need a little force as they often get stuck over the years).
Install the new bit in reverse order, and dont need to go overboard tightening the bolt as it can snap..
you must remove the plate from the bottom of the transmission. Look for a shaft that goes from the rear through a gear. Remove snap ring from in front of gear and it should roll apart then. On reassembly be sure to change gasket and all o rings to prevent hydraulic suction leaks
Hey, have you looked at the belt going from the motor to the drum? I am currently trying to make ours start spinning again too, and the problem is that the belt keeps dropping off, I am just trying to find out the size of the belt so I can go buy a new one. If this is your problem, it should be reasonably cheap to fix, just look up an (electrical) appliance spares shop in the yellow pages. I think the size I am looking for is a Z550 or Z600.
Inserted flexible piece of thin wire into hose connectioin on outside
of bowl and vigoursly wriggled it around - replaced hose and bingo
water fills and shuts off and machine operates correctly. Seems like
the hose connection was blocked, not a very scientific repair method
but seems to have worked. Thanks.
