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

The should be a bolt that goes thu the center that holds that down with the bottom part of the agiatator.. it might have pulled loose or rounded out the whole for the top part here is a link and a pic http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImagePageJava.shtml?productTypeID=0153200&brandID=3048&modelDesc=WASHER&modelNumber=SAV365ZAWW&documentID=M0512408&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PV&titleType=TUB%2C%20INNER%20%26%20OUTER%20%28SERIES%2012%29&titleID=00010&

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

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.

thats normal tension on the belt if the agitator is making noise the cams within the agitator are worn (loud clicking or popping noise during wash) the agitator will need to be replaced
