My Laundry Question

How do I take out the agitator out of my cabrio whirlpool washer. I have taken the bolt out, but now it won't come up.

Share a Little Background Info

My whirlpool cabrio is 6 years old. wish I would of brought a plain machine, there's to many things that go wrong with this machine, I paid over a 1,00.00 for this machine and everytime they out it cost a hundard or more. It's a big rip off.

Lessons Learned

  • Buy a different type of washing machine

Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

Remove the agitator top cap and unscrew the mounting bolt part way. Pull up on the agitator by both sides of the rim, then finish removing the bolt after the device is loose. This will make it easier to pull out - less brute force is needed. If you need a user or repair manual, you can find it here and replacement parts here.

Good luck!
