Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Maytag performa model#2300AWW, the agitator came off and I don't know how to put it back on, there is 1 bolt that came off also.

The agitator came off along with the bolt. I tried to put it back on but can't seem to get the agitator to go back on so I canbolt it back down.

Could you please tell me how to remove the agitator for cleaning on a Maytag top loading performa machine heavy duty.super size 3 speeds quiet series 100 13 cycles Thank you Bob Clark bobgc@bigpond.com


The agitator on a Maytag Performa comes off by removing the center post cap and dispenser by pulling on it. Locate the agitator bolt and loosen (you may need to hold the agitator in place while loosening). With the bolt removed, the agitator will lift off.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do you remove the agitator if something is caught underneath.


On a Maytag the agitator either has a bolt under the center cap, or a set screw along the side about 3/4 of the way down. Maytag Alantis and Performa models have a removable agitator cap with a bolt underneath, while the Dependable Care series have a set screw. In either case, you loosen the nut or screw, and the entire assembly will lift straight up. Sometimes they stick and require a little effort to remove. I hope this helps you.

Seal leaking from tub. How do I remove agitator?


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.

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.

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.

Loose Agitator


Usually, there is a bolt that holds the agitator on. If you remove the cap off the center of the agitator, you should find a bolt underneath that you can tighten back down. Adding a little thread lock to the bolt wont hurt.

Maytag Preforma washing machine


I would suggest Service Technician is cheaper than doing it yourself Bev007. It will save you headache too. Depending on the severity of the damage, you'll be working on the transmission attaching the shaft of the pulsator or agitator.
