Re: how to remove agitator
Remove the agitator by grasping firmly and pulling up towards your chin, carefully! *( many have 1/4 hex head screw on agitator, down the side near the base, older ones have a rubber ring on transmission shaft

I stood in the big basket and pulled up on the agitator and it came out. My tights were wound around the post underneath...would've never come out if I wouldn't have removed the agitator. 3rd pair of tights ruined! Also had a camisole do the same. I wouldn't advise buying this washer....I now have to hand wash tights, bras, and camisoles. The agitator went back fairly easy...altho on the second try, I think I had it positioned just right...?...phew!
Get 2 2x2 pieces of wood or 2 oak handles, 20 inches long. lay on on top of the other on the top of the washer. Loop a rope or ******** both sides of the agitator over one of the pieces of wood and tie it to the top piece of wood. Twist the top piece of wood slowly. As the 2 loops tighten up under the agitator the bottom piece holds the rope firmly across the top of machine. This save you from getting socked in the face by the agitator when it come off. You can buy an agitator remover but why not make you one and have so much fun doing it See the pic below? just ease a stick above the 2x4 and start slowly twing till she jumps out. Note: I didn't make this design I found it on line. I would run the rope under the agitator instead of taking a chance on breaking the fins. But that's just me.The trick is to grab it by the neck instead of the base. So try that before concocting a agitator remover. The agitator just snaps on. The drive block under the agitator is stripped out Wh43X10009 is the part number. Here it the manual
if anyone is still doing this.. i had a hotpoint model type vbxr1060. It had just a cap on agitator no extra bolts and used two hammers to get underneath the base creating leverage..
Work both hammers in (using the nail puller side) as far as possible towards the center of the agitator on opposing sides and use them to pull up and slightly outwards towards the sides of the basin. When you get it off you will see why this works as the agitator's base has mini clips that grasp the base of the air bell housing. hope this tip helps someone.
yes, remove the softener dispenser at the top of the agitator and there is a bolt there that is holding the agitator assembly. if you remove that bolt, the whole piece can be pull out and you can remove the clothe that was stuck in there.
with the exeption of something you mistakenly left in your clothing and wound up in the washer, not likely stains are from there , most of the time they do come from the dryer, try grabbin an old white rag nad runnig it around hte fron of hte dryer drum and then tyr the rear where the drum meets the back bulkhead. usually leavs brownish streks smome what curved 2-3 inches log. its from hte felt hte supposed to seal the drum. its either wearing thin, or a glide has worn away causing the issue
