How to remove a stuck agitator from a washing machine

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 04 December 2011 · 2,977 views

Methods to pop off agitator

2x4 method...the one we use
1 Fill the washer with hot water to cover the bottom half of the agitator

2Get a piece of strong rope about 58 inches long. Tie a knot the way you see it on the picture.

3 Place the rope around the agitator neck (sometimes looping under the bottom of agitator is best)

4 Get a 5 ft long piece of 2x4 and put a folded towel underneath it to protect the finish on the washer top.
Posted Image

5 Use the 2x4 as a lever. Putting pressure on the end of the piece of wood will lift the agitator out.

in the olden days we would loop 2 ropes under the agitator, connect the rope to each end of a 2x4 or broomstick. Stand on the machine and lift up like we were doing a clean and jerk

uh, huh...guys didn't think the old man had it in him, did ya now?. See what moving 'frigerators can do. But alas, we'll let you young ones get all puffy while we'll use our brains and the principal of leverage as depicted above or.......

Agitamer
bladder like device that lifts it out for ya

and even better, a home made agi remover thingy made using a unibar, some bent metal, a crescent wrench (or better yet, a drill driven socket)
