Hi,

My wife was washing a large cloth purse in our Maytag Performa PAV2300 when one of the large looping straps of the purse got caught underneath the base of the agitator. It must have made some knots underneath because it won't pull out no matter what I try.

I'm trying to pull the agitator out but I'm having trouble with accessing the bolt. Basically I pulled the softener dispenser off, but there's also a long shaft attached above the bolt area. Am I suppose to take this piece off too, or somehow get an extension tool of some sort to reach the bolt (a good 6" or more down the narrow shaft)?

Any help would be really appreciated!

Correct.

Bolt is normally an 1/2" SAE bolt head.

A long nut driver works well also....
