How to remove the agitator
I have a HD 80 Series Kenmore Washer (110-82692820) that will not spin. I've exchanged the motor coupling and bypassed the lid switch so I know that these are out of the equation. I've got a brake ready to install but I can't remove the larger agitator portion. I have removed the upper agitator portion but the larger lower portion has a sealed bearing object centered at the top of the larger upper agitator portion. Working WD-40 and pulling upward on the larger portion hasn't given me any results at removing the lower and larger agitator portion. Any ideas on what I may be missing? I've viewed many YouTube videos and read many articles but none reveal any solutions. Is there a special tool needed besides more ingenuity to remove the agitator? Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
