My agitator coupling bolt got loose, the agitator coupling is attached to the agitator and the complete assembly (agitator with the coupling) is out of the machine. The agitator coupling threads are worn out, I would need to replace it. The problem I am facing is how to remove the agitator coupling from the agitator. I see in some of the video they ask to put the complete assembly on the ground and hit the agitator coupling from top, however in my assembly I dont have access to the agitator coupling from top. The top part of the agitator is screwed to the bottom with four screws/bolts from underneath. Can you please suggest a way to remove the agitator coupling? Thanks, Alta
ANSWER Hello Alta,
Start the screw into the coupler through the hole in the agitator like you were going to install it. Instead of tightening it down, only start the screw into the screw hole and reach in with a long piece of wood such as a piece of an old broom handle and hit it with a hammer. This should pop the coupler from the agitator. Now remove the screw and the agitator should be loose enough to pull from the bottom of the agitator.
