Maytag Centennial Agitator wont spin

My maytag washer has a problem where the agitator will not spin. I was hoping it would be the kit, but the bottom also does not spin. all of it spins in spin cycle. The agitator wil spin by hand so it is not bound, and if when the washer is trying to do a wash cycle, you manually spin it backwards, it acts like it "connects" for a minute and is hit by a hammer, but then it stops again. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Grinding sound during agitation cycle on my Maytag Performa

Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

Wash cycle will agitate 3 spins then nothing for a few minutes then 3 more and nothing again and repeat over and over


you may want to put it through a diagnostics cycle and check for error codes... Maytag Centennial Washer Repair Guide
The tub sensor can cause the washer to act strangely like that. Also there are two mechanical styles of washer branded Maytag Centennial. The model number would help to know we are talking about the one I think we are talking about.
Hope that helps!

The agitator on my maytag mvwc300vw1 barely moves. We used an agitator replacement kit but nothing changed. The spin cycle works fine. Does our washer have a repair we can handle?


there really isnt much more to look at when u have the issue ur talking about? Are u sure u placed the cam dogs in correctly? u may want to check the agitator spline which the agitator sits into at bottom if bad however that should also effect the spin?

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.

There is a 1/4" machine screw in a recessed hole close to the bottom of the agitator. Remove screw. Lift agitator off agitate shaft.
