Default Agitator Coupling Bolt snapped off in Drive Shaft
Model Number: GHWP1000MWW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My washer had stopped agitating and upon investigation it looked like the agitator coupling was fairly stripped and there was plastic shavings as well. I orderd a new agitator coupling and in an attempt to get a head start before it arrived I was going to remove the older one. The hold down bolt was really stuck but I thought I had loosened it enough to start really turning. The bolt just snapped off in the drive shaft about 1/2 way down. What are my options now?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

A number of companies make tools that will allow you to reverse drill into the bolt had and anchor a devise for removing the bolt.

Make sure you use a lot of "rust buster" type stuff sprayed on the bolt.

Wish I had more options, but this can be problem that cannot be solved sometimes.

Good luck, hope this helps.
