Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

Agitator keeps falling off

The agitator keeps falling off. I have to screw it back down before every load. I'm thinking the bolt is stripped, but it looks fine. I'm hoping that I don't have to replace the entire thing. No one else seems to have this exact problem since I can't find it anywhere. Any suggestions?

Won't agitat under agitator yellow coupling held by 7/16 bolt should this spin freely or does this mean its stripped


it probably means that it's stripped. it grips the spine and allows movement of the agitator. the transmission shaft may be rotating back and forth, but the agitator doesnt move properly. i would remove the coupling and take a look underneath it to see if it's stripped.

Agitator loose does not swish clothes around .... can't figure out how to remove the agitator in order to see what may have come loosened or if splines are stripped .... how do you remove the agitator ?


Hello, on the style GE washer there is an agitator coupling under the agitator that will sometimes strip out. To repair this remove the agitator by pulling it straight up and out.
TIP: If you can't get your fingers under the agitator, you can slip a belt under the agitator and then pull by that, once the agitator is off you should see a yellow coupling held on by a 7/16 bolt, remove that bolt and pull the coupling up and off the transmission shaft. Sometimes it will be hard to remove and you might need to knock it up with a hammer. Once it is off you should be able to slide the new one back on, bolt it down and push the agitator back on.
Thanks

Whirlpool top-loader LSQ9200LQ0 The top half of the agitator is not turning. I am assuming it is a stripped part. What would be the best way to take this apart??


You have what bad "agitator dogs". Yes this is a stripped out part. To get to the dogs, you will need to take the fabric softener dispenser off the top of the agitator (if your unit does not have a dispenser, then just take the cover of the agitator). Under that you will see a semi transparent cap that fits inside the shaft of the agitator, pull that straight up and out of the agitator. Now you can see the bolt that hold the agitator to the transmission shaft, this is a 1/2" or 9/16" bolt. You will need a socket with a long extension to reach this. Take a digital picture, or sketch the position of the dogs inside the agitator, this will help with the reassembly process. Once the bolt is out, the agitator will lift off. Turn the agitator upside down and depress the tabs up inside the shaft of the agitator, this will release the top of the agitator from the bottom, be careful, there are small parts that will fall out. Try to separate it in one piece, as this will make it easier to reassemble. Once separated, remove the old dogs and replace with the new, reassemble in reverse. When tightening the bolt, only tighten snug, the black rubber gasket should not bulge out when tightened. Also make sure the "o" ring on the semi transparent cover is in place and not broken. If you have questions, write me back. Hope this helps!

Agitator gear is stripped


just place both feet on the agitator as it sits on the floor and lift up on the top half. there are plastic tabs on the bottom half that hold the two pieces together. you will need to remove the 2 tabs before putting the 2 pieces together. the bolt that you screw the agitator down with will hold the 2 pieces together.

Loose agitator on Whirlpool Ultima Care II washer


it could have stripped the spline on the plastic agitator. there is a bolt at the middle of the agitator and you can access that thru the top . remove the top cover and you can remove the bolt using a deep socket.

once you remove the agitator you can look at the dog agitator. these a 4 pcs plastics that works like a one way wrench.

be careful on the location, they are very hard to put back.

check also the spline on the inner part of the plastic assembly.

they do get stripped.

if they are, replace the whole agitator.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Agitator fall off and knocking noise during spin cycle


there should be a rubber washer with the bolt. if it is missing the bolt may back of during agitation. also the threads on the transimision may be stripped. Some Green lock tight found in most hard ware stores should help. the knocking noise is probably due the agitator coming loose.
