I have the agitator. I removed the set screw from the side but agitator will not come out. I put a coat hanger through the slits on the side of the agitator, brought both ends up and twisted together to form a loop. I put a oak handle through that coat hanger loop to the top of the spinning drum and pryed up as I hit the aggitator with a rubber malett. Agitator will not come up.
ANSWER Hello John. If the unit is stuck on the shaft, and the set screw is removed, I have seen cases where the old agitator had to be busted off with hammer and chisel, if the shaft was rusted and swollen. Be sure and remove any of the agitator parts you can reuse if you have to bust it off.
