Model 110-27062604. Serial cw2170839. The last 12 minutes it starts a loud noise. Can not remove the flat agitator on the bottom of the tank. We have removed the bolt but can not get ahold of the flat agitator. How can we pull it out

Hello from our service,

My name is Chas, I am so happy to help you today.
Before we get started, I would like to help us get on the same page so that our interaction will go smoothly.
I might give you an answer immediately, or ask you a question. Either way, we are likely to be in a question and answer format, so you will need to click reply to expert if:
a. You want to add detail.
b. Your question was not fully answered.
c. You want to ask further questions.

Since I am inviting you back to do any of these, do not use a 1 or 2 rating or this will likely NOT help you get a satisfactory answer. It will delay our task, and it tends to be depressing for the expert trying to help you, often right at the beginning of the exchange, before we have accomplished our task.

I know the rating system is somewhat complicated, but you do not have to do a negative rating in order not to pay or to get your deposit back.

In addition, a negative rating only serves to rate the expert doing his/her utmost to help you. The expert also will not get paid under these circumstances.

Negative ratings do not cover site problems, delays, or anything else on the site that might annoy you, as experts are only involved in trying to answer your questions.

Negative ratings do not cover posts that do not come through, or any other difficulties...experts face those just as you do. This includes frustrations that you might have had before meeting your expert.

I would like to say that we are also on the honors system. I in good faith am going to do my utmost to ensure your satisfaction. But, it is up to your honor to click a smiley face and make sure that I am compensated for my time and effort. Please realize we are only compensated PER smiley per click and from bonuses, so extensive time with you would hopefully stimulate your consideration of this aspect of the system.



The wash disc may be stuck,, can you get a screwdriver under it and pry it up?

Tried getting a screw driver under , still could not pry it up
Can you get a strong thin cord under it until it reaches the near center and jerk up on both ends of the cord?

OK got the agitator out. Looks like something had been there and scratches on bottom of tub, but found no foreign object there. if ther was something there, where could it have gone and how do we find it?
at 12 minutes it is in spin cycle, I am willing to bet your bearing has gone out in the outertub, reason being the agitator spins with the tub in the 12 minutes.

OK, it makes a noise when there is only 12 minutes left. But how do you get to the bearing
You can order the kit for the repair at the following link below, also you may want to order the bearing driver that is also listed on this page.

Click here for the correct part for your unit.

Repair Clinic offers a 365 day no question ask return policy, so if the repair does not work you can return the part to them for a full refund, yes this even includes electronic parts that many other part suppliers will not allow to be returned.

Here is a video on replacing the part

All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me. Click the continue conversation link if you would like to continue this conversation. If you are done and rate a 1 or 2 star please consider using the "continue conversation" link and telling me what more I can do or what more you would have liked that was within my power so that I possibly give you that information or help me improve my customer satisfaction rating. . .

Bonuses are welcome if I have helped you a lot, however they are not mandatory

Thank you very much. We will try to install the bearing. We want to pay only the one time charge, and not the monthly charge. Again thank you for the excellent advise.
no problem, have a great time fixing it.
