Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
I want to remove the drum and clean out the tank cause we keep getting gunk on our laundry after the load. (tried vinegar etc to clean it that way, no luck)
I have followed the directions up to step 5, "Remove agitator by grasping bottom and pulling sharply up." the next step is the 7/16th hex bolt.
I can barely get my fingers under the agitator, and pulling "sharply" seems to be impossible, since the whole thing moves.
Can I pry it out?
Remove fabric softner cup from top of agitator and remove 1/2 bolt for inside agitator then you'll need spanner wrench to remove nut that hold spin basket in tub. maybe use some affresh tabs or washer magic to remove build up

If you get grease-like marks on your clothes after a laundry cycle, and they wash out in the next load, don't despair. It's a sure bet they're caused by detergent and fabric softener that have congealed on the underside of the agitator or along the top edge of the washer basket.
To eliminate the problem, first clean any crud from the gap along the top of the washer basket. Then remove the agitator and clean the gunk off the underside. Since the agitator removal procedure varies by manufacturer, go toallplianceguru.com and search for your make and model. After youve cleaned the agitator, reinstall it and fill the tub with hot water. Next, dump in 8 oz. of washing machine cleaner (Washer Magic is one brand; buy fromamazon.com or applianceparts stores) and run it for a full cycle without any clothes. That should eliminate the problem. If not, repeat the procedure.
