After removing the agitator bolt I can't get the agitator out of the washer no matter how hard I pull up on it. Any suggestions?
Also when doing the capatibility check it says the agitator dogs are not compatible with my model. Not sure what to do.
ANSWER Judy, under the circumstances, we recommend you order and install the "cam kit" 285811 . Based on your post information, it sounds like the bearings have seized together and are causing the difficulty to remove the agitator and clothes mover. Once you have the bolt removed, you may want to place a length of rope or a very large belt under the agitator and use the rope to lift up on the complete assembly, it will give you a little bit more leverage, it usually works. If not, you'll need to carefully cut or chisel the agitator off the transmission shaft and replace the agitator 285565.
