    You can ask what the infinitive מָחֹה adds, but the verb אֶמְחֶה is necessary for meaning of the pasuk and not extra. – msh210 Jan 11 '11 at 6:36

The weekly "Torah Lodaas" sheet (by Rabbi Matis Blum zt'l of Queens, New York) for B'shalach 5771, quotes the book Gan Yosef, by the author of Pardes Yosef, as saying that the duplication is to indicate that although after erasing a mark is still visible, the erasure of Amalek must be even of that mark.
