The agitator in my washing machine is broken, plastic from one of the fins broke off. The agitator listed (AP2131582) does appear to be the part I need replaced. But with the dryer on top of the unit, I don't see how I can get the current agitator out to replace it. The cap unscrews and the agitator lifts up, but I can't fit it out of the available space between washer lid and tub. How can I replace this part?
ANSWER Hello Mark. Once you lift the agitator upward, you will pull the top toward you, and grasp the bottom of the agitator. Then you will pull the agitator out of the hole. These are tight, but can be removed from the unit.
