LG Top Load Washer - Can't remove Pulsator
« on: April 06, 2015, 04:23:54 PM »
Standard LG top load washer with Pulsator/Washplate, sorry don't have model number handy.

Need to replace clutch assembly, but Pulsator is fused to shaft.  The Pulsator needs to come off so I can get to the spanner nut. Anybody else run into this? And if so, what did you do to free it up?

Haven't had an issue with LG yet, but when I run in to a stuck wash plate or agitator. I take a 2x4 and place it across the top of the tub. Wrap a ratchet strap around the plate/agitator then loop up around the 2x4 and slowly increase the tention till it pops off.

You can't pull from one side or the other! Get cha a 90 degree pick, insert in the chrome cap rectangular holes on pulsator itself and pull up alternating between the three
