White Westinghouse LA400axw2 agitator removal

6 posts in this topic

Seeking wisdom...have removed agitator cap and underlying "two shank" bolt. All attempts at leverage and penetrating oil have failed. Suggestions?

That machine is very old so the agitator wont come off with the help of a maul and replacing the agitator.. Why are you trying to remove it?

Thanks for the reply. I had a leak from the tub drain hose and thought that the agitator needed to be removed to remove the tub. Needless to say I broke the tub balance reservoir and still did not get the actuator off the shaft. And you are right, got 18 years out of this baby. Any recommendations on a basic, no frills, dependable replacement?

The super deal top loaders at HD and Lowes are available...not at $249 at the moment. Does anyone sell belt drive anymore - like my recently deceased washer?
