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.

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.

I have a foul smell comming from my washer I want to try to take off the agitator and clean it How? :)


It depends on what model Maytag washer you have. If you have an Atlantis or Performa model Maytag you remove the agitator by, first, pulling the agitator cap and softener dispenser off. Locate the bolt on the center post and and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. If this is a Dependable Care model Maytag, there's a 1/4 inch screw located on the SIDE of the agitator about 3 quarters of the way down. Locate this screw and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. I hope this helps you.
