Grandma's nylons wrapped around the bottom of the agitater

Simple as that i need to know how to remove the agitater so that i can untangle the nylons. i've removed the cap off the top of the agitater and then removed a bolt  ()bout 3 inches long) however it still won't come off.

    I have the same issue with clothes being wrapped around the bottom of the agitater. What parts are needed to fix something like this issue, or do I need to wait until I get the agitater off to see?

Now you need to pull upward firmly but hard.  there are small splines holding the agitator in position. carefull if the agitator has two parts to it as there are usually plastic (dogs)inside which could spring loose if you are not careful.

How do I remove the agitater from simpson washing machine espirit 550 5.5kg


most machines with verticle and turning agitators have a cap on the top which may be removed with a small ***** driver. that should give you access to dawgs and release nut. use a rubber hammer to gently tap and loosen if need be.

Top part of agitator won't rotate good


This is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs. The following link explains what they are, and how to replace them:

The part number is included in the link provided. You can purchase replacements at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit, which includes the cam, the bearing, and the dogs. If the model number you listed this under is correct, the part number for the kit is AP3094543 and sells for about $12.

NOTE: You can refer to the excellent exploded view parts diagrams the web site has to offer for assistance.

Agitator isnt working properly


Hi, You will need to replace the agitator dog kit inside the agitator.
Remove the cap of the agitator and then remove the inside cap. You will need a 7/16" socket with a long extension to reach the bolt that holds the agitator in place.
Pull the agitator out and seperate the top half from the bottom half. The dog kit # is 285770.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Drawstring tangled under agitator on an older GE washing machine.


You should be able to unscrew the top cap of the agitator ( may be left hand thread ) and lift off the agitator once the cap is off... They sometimes stick so you may have to muscle it to remove that cap..once lifted off..you should be able to untangle the string that is caught..
