Repair always starts with the first step.
I removed agitator screw, great.
Agitator decided to agitate me by refusing to lift off.
I am a one-armed DIYer.
Is there a trick to lifting out agitator.
Not giving up. :-\ :-\


What parts do I need to order or do I wait to disassemble.
Also if grease has been leaking, do I need to add some.

When the transmissions were built they were only half full of oil. Now you have a transmission full of water and oil. You will have to remove the top of the transmission and clean out that mess and fill the bottom half with gear oil.

I have only had to do this once..but this may help.
    • Fill the washer with hot water to cover about 4" bottom of the agitator.
    • 60 inches long nylon rope
    • fold the rope in half making a loop.
    • run opens end thou the loop
    • loop the laso around agitator low as you can.
    • Get a 6 ft long 2x4
    • Put one end of 2x4 on top of agitator
    • with the 2x4 extending off the front of the washer.
    • put a  towel on the top front of the washer.
    • tie the rope around the 2X4
    • press down on the extended 2x4 too pull up on the rope and remove agitator

    We used the Agitamer. If it wouldn't come off with that, it was time to break out the hammer and chisel.
