maytag mav6257aww Agitator want come out
« on: November 27, 2014, 08:51:55 PM »

I have removed the screw inside the top. And pulled and wiggled the agitator just will not come out. All the videos I have watch show it easily lifting out. Am I missing something?

Thank You in advance, Rab

Hi,

Probably just stuck on. Sometimes it helps to get a strap or belt under the agitator to help pull up on it. Just be careful not to hit yourself in the face with it.

May have to give it a shot of rust buster, liquid wrench or something along them lines and then try to rock it back and forth.

What's wrong with the washer?
