My whirlpool compact washer lcr7244hq1 is recently slowing or stopped agitating . It seems to happen especially during the spin cycle. Do i need to replace the agitator innards ? What part? If so, how do get the shaft off? I removed the side screw of of the side of the shaft and was unable to remove the shaft. I literally pulled so hard I lifted the unit off of the ground. Please help! Thanks

Seth for Model Number Lcr7244hq1

ANSWER Seth, if you've remove the screw and can't lift the agitator off the shaft, you may want to try a short length of rope or belt and slip that under the agitator and pull up. The agitator could be seized to the transmission shaft, and will need to be cut,or broken and chiselled off. Per the previous post, you may want to check the belt, brake and "splutch" components, you may not need to remove the agitator, at all. Thanks Again
