Hello,

I had an unfortunate incident with a rug that crumbled to bits in the washer, thus clogging it completely, so now I am disassembling my GE WCXR1070T5WW in hopes of clearing the crud out of the bottom of the tub assembly.

I am unable to get the agitator pulled up and out of the spin basket. The service directions say "Remove agitator by grasping bottom and sharply pulling up" and I have done so in every way I can think of for about 2 weeks now. The agitator is not moving.

The directions (they are the originals from inside the front panel) have had one minor error already, where my washer has 2 screws to remove in the front, and the directions didn't list these screws, so I am wondering if this is the case again.

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

It's not moving. I can't believe this is so hard to pull up. I guess this agitator is somehow corroded in place. Is that even possible? Phooey.

Thanks so much for the help, anyway!

an amana washer has a simular design and is even harder to remove, that old dryer belt trick does work for them as well,  but on this ge POS I usualy grab the agitator by the skinny part not the bottom and it comes right out and b:Py the way dont try to GLUE the hub down spend 7 dollars on a new hub wh43x10009 I think thats the part number lol
