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

SOURCE: Maytag won't spin or agitate

I have had the same problem and found that the teeth on the under side of the agitator had been worn down to nothing... I assume this is from years of over loading (not from me) and so the agitator could not spin any more... i would tighten the bolt that holds th agitator on and it would come loose after a few loads. So my solution was to get a little bit longer bolt and newer plastic washer and tighten it as tight as i could and it seemed to work. Versus buying a new agitator base that would cost about $20-$30 and would have to wait for the part to be ordered. hope this helps

SOURCE: How do you remove the agitator on a Maytag Dependable Care Washer?

If this is a Maytag Performa or Atlantis model all you have to do is remove the center cap on the agitator by pulling on it and locate the agitator bolt underneath. Loosen the bolt, and the agitator should pull straight up.

If this is a Maytag Dependable Care series there will be 1/4 inch screw along the side of the agitator towards the bottom. Remove this screw and the agitator will pull straight up.

I hope this helps you.

PS If the problem is due to the build up of fabric softener, soak in some hot water to loosen it up. Fabric softener is essentially a form of liquid wax and it is common for it to accumulate and clog the dispenser in this manner. Periodic cleaning is recommended.

How do I clean the Maytag washing machine's filter


Front loading
unplug the machine
Raise the front (use wooden blocks, whatever
Look for the screws to the bottom panel, remove them, then the panel
Remove the filter, clean it
Replace the filter into its housing and turn clockwise to lock it in place. Replace the panel, making sure it catches in the top brackets. Insert the bottom screws and tighten them.
Remove the wooden blocks and lower the machine to the floor. Plug the machine back in.
Top Loading
Unplug the machine
Depending on the model (Maytags are usually Whirlpool washers) you:
don't have a filter
or you have one in the control panel (be careful if you find that's the case)
or - most likely - you have a screen or other parts below your agitator that are clogged.
If it's the last item - removing the agitator usually isn't that difficult - socket wrench and an extension and socket lets you remove it by pulling straight up - then take a look at what's going on. You may be able to simply clean things up at the bottom of the washer tub, or you may need to order replacement parts. Then reassemble.
If it leaks occasionally that's probably a clogged or kinked drainage hose at the back, remve and clean it then reattach.

I have a Maytag Washer Model LAT9206BAE, I have cleaned the washer but my clothes are still getting a lint like substance on them. Is there a screen or something on the discharge that may be blocked.


There is no filter. You may have something that is hung up under the agitator. To remove the agitator, remove the fabric softener cup, then the bolt that holds the agitator on and lift the agitator out.

HP laserjet 100 mfp blue line


I had the same kind of problem with the same printer.
The problem started with yellow toner powder 'leaking' inside the printer and contaminating the printed documents.

After inspection, the yellow cartridge showed what seamed to be like caked/cluttered powder between the magnetic roller and the doctor blade.
I dismantled the cartridge to realise the 'caked/cluttered powder' was in fact a sponge material. The internal 'spongy' toner feeder roller was damaged and little pieces of the material was coming out of the cartridge.

After further inspection inside the printer (all cartridges and drum removed), I found two little pieces of the same material stuck between the kevlar roll and the metallic housing underneath it. (going up, from bottom to top, you have the pile of paper in the feeder -> horizontal metallic plate -> kevlar roll -> toner carousel.)
I used a strip of heavy paper (200g) to gently remove the two sponges, set two clean jobs and the problem was solved.
The kevlar roll is also accessible from the printer's back door, some material may also be stuck in this location.

Lots of Q-tips! I'd also use some small pieces of cotton cloth--be careful it doesn't leave strands of cloth in the bottom of the printer. I've had this happen and I just stuck with it until it got reasonably clean.
Oh--and warm water will work just fine. Most of the ink is water-soluble

My maytag washer is throwing off a musty stentch. What should I do about this? It is stinking up my laundry room and the entrance to my condo.


There is a soap buildup underneath your agitator. Look for a screw on the outside of your agitator just above the lower large part with the agitatotr blades. Memory is fading but it is either a 5/16 or 1/4 ince socket that will be required to remove the screw. Once the screw is removed simply lift the agitator out then begin cleaning the tub with PLASTIC bladed putty knife. As for the agitator use something like Mr Muscle or Eliminate to clean the botttom and inside of the agitator itself. (any product that will remove soap or calcium buildup) \You can also use those same products to clean what is still on the top face of the inside bottom of your wash tub. Once you finish cleaning simply align the splines on the agitator and re-install the screw. You will NOT damage your machine running it empty. Make sure you run at least a full rinse cycle before washing clothes again as there will be some residue that will need to be washed out of your machine. Once you install the agitator push the tub stiffly in 90 deg quadrants and look at the top of your wash tub cover. Soap build up in that area can also result in an odor. The is something you can do yourself. Good Luck.

Disassembly of washer agitator


With the palm of your hand, bang the very top section of the agitator, there are no screws, it is just a firm push-fit.
Do it with the agitator locked in the tub.

How to clean the inside of the glass door of Electrolux Wall Oven


I scoured the internet trying to find how to clean inside the glass of my Electolux Icon double wall ovens. Short of "The Big Q-tip" method (which only made a smeared mess) I didn't find anything. So I went ahead and started taking the doors apart. I'm happy to report I just finished with fantastic results. So I'm going to do a step by step, I know I would have appreciated reading instructions for it. It's very easy but time consuming. You'll need a large work area because there are actually 4 sheets of glass, a Philips screwdriver, and a straight razor with handle.

Refer to your manual on how to take the doors off - but it's very easy. Simply open the door, flip the locks toward you and pull up and out at the same time. Be careful...the door is very heavy.

Lay door on blanket or towel, especially if it's stainless steel. There are 4 screws along each side of the door. The 2 screws that hold the hinge at the bottom are smaller than the 2 closer to the top.

On the very bottom there are two more screws to hold the bottom outer frame. Under that piece are 2 more screws that hold the inner bottom frame. That's it. Slide out the hinges and you're ready to go.

Remove those 2 frame pieces and keep in mind how they fit back together. Remove the top piece of glass and put on another towel. Now I'm not sure if it matters but I was mindful of the side of each piece of glass as I remove and cleaned them to make sure they went back exactly as they came out.

The first piece is going to be the most time consuming to clean. One took me over an hour. The grease is hard to get off because it just spreads around. I found a straight razor really sped this along, just make sure you always use the razor on wet glass or you'll scratch the glass. It's fiddly...just keep at it. I also used mineral spirits to help degrease. When done I laid this on the dining table.

The next 2 pieces of glass are in a frame that comes out together. The frame is only on the sides so be careful it doesn't come apart on you when carrying it. Inside the frame piece is a rubber gasket to separate the 2 pieces of glass. Watch how the frame comes off, there is a wide and a narrow side. It's easier to take off the frame piece and simply lift of the first piece of glass. The bottom piece of glass sits in a channel of the rubber gasket.

Pretty simple. Lots of elbow grease if you cook a lot. Reverse the order to reassemble. One thing to note - on the door sides near the top, you'll see a silver metal piece inside the black frame. Make sure the screw holes are visible thru the black frame. I have very small fingers so it was easy to do it with my fingers but I would imagine someone with large hands will have some difficulty. Also, when screwing the hinge in place I had to twist the hinge so the screw hold was up against the black frame. The screws are so short that they'll just spin without catching if you don't.

Happy cleaning!
