GE Profile broken agitator
I have a GE Profile model PTWN8050M0ww high efficiency top loader that is only 1.5 years old. While removing a load of clothes, I noticed the agitator was crooked, and when I reached for it, it came right up in my hand. It is the low profile agitator that just pushes the clothes around, not the normal tall agitator.
There appears to be a bolt or stud that is broken off partway inside the agitator. On the top of the agitator, under a removeable plastic cap, there is a phillips head screw. The corresponding broken piece is sticking up slightly in the center of the tub bottom.
Is this a broken off stud, or a bolt that I could possibly drill out of both parts? Something I can do myself with a replacement part, or a job for a pro? Figures it would break soon after the warranty ends. Appliances these days are crap. I bought this to replace a 25 year old top loader that cost $150 new and worked fine but was a bit beat up and getting noisy. Wish I had it back.
