Whirlpool removal of 7/16 screw
 
The top agitator ( clothes mover) has a 7/16 bolt that has to be removed in order to remove top agitator. I have tried to turn it but bottom agitor turns and I cannot break bolt loose. Any suggestions will be appreciated

Get someone to hold the bottom of the agitator and loosten the bolt. If very hard to turn, be carefull not to bust it. I usually turn it a bit then spray WD- 40 on it and turn it back and forth till it frees up. Avoid using a break out bar on it, you might sheer it off in the tranny spindle.
