We have a GE washing machine. The motor is working but the agitator isn't turning. Any idea why?

How do I take the agitator off to replace this? I am dumber than dirt!

Is it located on the top or under the agitator?

Your doing just fine.

It is under the agitator. Let me find you one of Samuris pics too but that will take a sec

Well thank you. Mr Samuri loves Beer :D

Yes it will snap back down on the new one.

First get the agitator off. The the one bolt holding the "bell housing" and then remove the bell. Put the new bell in place, bolt it down and snap the agitator on it.

Just make sure....

Can you turn the agaitaor left and right by hand pretty easy right now. like it is not catching that bell underneath very tight?

Yes, it turns very easily both ways. I can hear the motor running but it doesn't turn unless I do it and it spins either way very easy.

Perfect. It's a cheap part.

My friend just ran to the store to get some rope so I can take it off. UGH!

Those things do happen. After you pull the agitaor up make sure that the hub looks and feels bad. Try to turn the hub by hand on the shaft of the transmission that it sits on. You don't want to buy a part if you don't need it. That hub should be firm and tight on that transmission shaft. If not, it's stripped. If you buy your part through this site it will help keep the board up and running.

Okay, it's me again!! Sorry.

I got the agitator off and took the screw out but the part won't come off. Should it pop off or should I force it off?
