There are 2 hub caps in the center of the rotors. Use a small screw drive and pop them out. There is a small torx head screw to remove in each. Once the screw is out, the rotors will pull right out. Caution, there is a left and a right, the underside is also marked left and right. You will find dimes, pennies, washers and even I found half of a credit card. Good Luck

How to remove agitater from maytag washer

Remove the top cap(s), there should be a nut under it that holds the agitator in place. Remove the nut and pull the agitator off. It may be tough to get it out if its never been removed, over time lots of soap, dirt etc.; gets in there and clogs up the splines. Try pouring boiling water onto the splines, if its hard to get off.

The washer will not go into High Spin. I had the problem before, when a penny was lodged in one of the agitators. I need to know, how to remove the 2 agitators in the washing tub, to remove any debrei

You have to pry off the caps on the tumblers. Try not to produce any burs on them so on reinstall they dont snag the wash load.

Once you have the caps off you take a #20 Torx driver and back out the tumbler retaining screw the SM does not call that out.

Page 37 of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual will detail this?

Do you have the SM? If not join this forum and download SM 16022808 Maytag Top Load Neptune Washer Service Manual

My Maytag Neptune smells very musty. I have used vinegar, baking soda, and bleach but the smell wont go away!!!

This is gunk build up under the agitator and/or the drain area under the drum. It needs to come apart...

Neptune washer will not go past the first wash cycle

All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This will require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

Response to maytag question/your answer

OK, then it might be the tension wheel. They have a tension wheel, that keeps tension on the belt, that turns the drum. The bearings in it, might be worn out.

Washer leaking water on floor

Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.

If you suspect the leak is from the main drum seal.
To remove the agitator, remove the softener cap by pulling, look inside the agitator, undo the bolt (4) with long socket extension and then lift out.
5e90500.jpg Not sure if you can see the seal ("O" ring at this point, you may need to remove the inner drum.
Isolate the supply.
Lift the top cover by inserting a flat blade approx 4" in at each side at the front to release the two top clips, top cover will lift and hinge backwards out of the way.
To remove the top ring (13) from the drum, unclip each clip around the top untill released, then remove.
to remove the inner drum (10) , unbolt (7) from the inside, lift out inner drum.
Seal (1) should be visible.
