Removed agitator base from admiral washing machine

Removed agitator base from admiral washing machine aav7000aww without removing bolt first thus separating the auger from sleeve. Now pops off when washing. Are the dogs stripped? I hate to go get a new one if I can fix it.

    OK my mistake. I removed the upper agitator from base without removing bolt. This caused the upper agitator to separate from sleeve inside of it(see pic) upon reassembling and doing a load it keeps popping off from sleeve. Is there a way to tighten? Nothing appears to be broken or stripped inside the upper agitator.

SOURCE: I havea Kenmore Series 70 Washer. I top agitator

Take the softner dispensor out then you have a clear cap, remove that it just comes right out.
Then you will see a 7/16" screw take that out. Then the top will easily come out.

Very easy can do it in like 2 mins.

The hard part is lineing it all up to put it back in. Let me know if you need any more help.

SOURCE: Agitator sounds as if it's stripped

The agitator and drive gearbox are all one part and are not serviceable (sealed), if it is the gearbox the machine is possibly scrap as the part is more expensive than a new machine. Will need further investigation.
Is the spin OK (quiet) the motor rotates one way to agitate and the other way in fast to spin, the belt may be removed at the middle pulley (Below) rotated in each direction to test. try the machine without the belt and listen to motor.

Admiral washer aav7000aww-agitator only spins one direction-doesn't agitate-it stirs the laundry.

Remove the agitator, and turn the transmission pulley, one way, the spin basket will spin, the other way, the transmission spindle should go back and forth. If not, you have a bad transmission.
Here is the transmission to order if you should find it bad.

My sleve is stuck in the spinning deal of my washer, how do i get it out?

Remove the rinse dispenser from the top of the agitator (spinning deal). Unscrew the agitator cap located on top of the agitator which is only hand tightened. Once the plastic agitator cap is removed from the top of the agitator you should see a screw which you will need a socket or an adjustable wrench to remove the screw. The agitator can now be removed by lifting strait up to free the sleeve. My only concern is how the sleeve became lodged under the agitator unless the tub became unbalanced from a heavy load. The other possibility could be the support for the tub is broken and needs to be replaced.

Admiral washer will not agitate or empty it is a aav7000aww,what part do i need

What you need is a motor coupling, either take of front panel if it's on this model or take the whole cabnet off. To do this, take two screws off either side of the back near the timer. Then lift timer console upwards, you'll see two metal clips, get a flat head screw driver pop both and unplug lid switch. Remove cabnet, and the motor coupling is right behind the motor.... It will cost about 29.95 plus tax for the motor coupling give or take

How to separate auger from agitator. whirlpool ultimate care II

When you look down into the agitator, are there 4 white plastic points that look slightly melted or otherwise deformed? If so, using a small flat head screw and a small hammer, separate the white plastic from the surrounding translucent plastic. Once you've done that, it should easily pull apart.

Maytag washer model PAV3300AWW The auger slips up on the post and does not rotate properly. Ca the post be purchased seperately from the auger or must it be purchased as an assembly?

Go to and type in your model number. The part(s) you may need are listed under the "Tub" heading as items number 1 (part #21001593) and 14 (part #21001530). To answer your intial question, yes, you can replace the parts separately. However, you will need to remove the upper auger and inspect the agitator base for wear or damage to be sure. You may have to replace both parts. To remove the agitator, all you have to do is remove the dispenser cap and remove the center bolt underneath. With the bolt removed, the auger and base should pull straight up and off. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
