How do I remove the agitator from LG top Load washer


the agitator is held by a bolt with a 7/16 drive nut located inside the middle of agitator from the top downward? however by ur description sounds like maybe u have bad bearing in the hub? the cam dogs in the agitator dont usually make any noise especially when bad they just dont allow the agitator to move or catch the groves to agitate. The grinding could also be coming from something stuck inside the tub or on its outside and thus is hitting the wall lining and makes a screeching scraping sound, Ive seen this several times, a bra wire, or loose coin or key, etc

Makes grinding noise when agitating


It was a worn pad inside the agitator. It sounded much worse than it was.

Thank you for the help.

I think there is a rock stuck between the wash basin. When I spin the basin by hand, I can hear the rock rattling around. I am not sure how to get it out of there.


IF YOU REMOVE THE TOP OF THE AGITATOR BY SCREWING CCW THE CAP YOU CAN THEN GET THE AGITATOR OFF AND REMOVE THE ROCK AND PUT BACK TOGETHER. NOTE: IF THIS IS AN OLDER UNIT THE AGITATOR MAY BE SEISED TO THE SHAFT IN THAT CASE LEAVE THE ROCK IN THERE. THE CHANCES OF GETTING THE AGITATOR OFF OLDER UNITS ARE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE

Agitator ''dogs'' not gripping, agitator spins freely; tub rocks


Likely a broken dog itself was making the noise. They should all be replaced.

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.


Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

the agitator shaft has come loose from the transmission. when you pushed it back down it probably didn't seat properly, thats why the grinding sound. you need a new transmission

Grinding niose from agitator.


If the fill and drain functions correctly, AND the spin cycle works correctly, AND the cycle itself starts and completes correctly, the problem being that the back and forth motion of the agitator starts the loud grinding noise, it will likley be broken gears in the transmission. The single most expensive part in the washing machine.
