Is the coupler stuck inside of the agitator or stuck on the agitator shaft??  If inside the agitator cut out  the top center of the agitator and drive the assy out with a rod /screw driver and hammer, install the new assy on the transmission shaft and then install the agitator. If it is stuck on the agitator shaft.....:poison:

It is stuck on the shaft.  The rubber ID broke free of the center metal coupling and thus no agitation only loud squeaking.  I got the rubber off, but can't get the metal center off the od spline of the agitator shaft.  It is hard to get a mallot inside the drum to pound it up and off the post and there seems to be no easy way to get the whole shaft off to take it out and press it off.  The wife says if this doesn't get fixed, I have to buy a new washer and dryer.   thanks,

try spraying some penetrate on the top and letting it seep down into it. take a pair of channell locks, or vice grips and put on the coupler then tap upward with hammer or the such. should come right off.....good luck

you can also use a puller. [ge/robinaire] sells a collar that fits over coupling but you could home rig something and then use yor puller to get it off. if your successful, put new coupling on trans shaft and pour a lot of detergent on top of it then drive agitator down with rubber mallet.

We have gotten them off by using a hack saw and cutting down near the tranny shaft and starting it going in sections like pealing a banana...make a cut and then peal back using a chisel and hammer, careful not to damage the splines on the transmission shaft.

Thanks for all the advice.  I did finally got it off by heating it up with a propane torch and pounding it up with a rubber dead blow mallet and a cresant wrench.  It was on there good.  If anyone follows this method, I would suggest they be a bit more careful than I was.  I wasn't planning for that coupling to come shooting so high and I got a little burn on the cheek to prove it.  It is as good as new now.  Thanks again.
