Maytag Atlantis MAVT634AWW sounds like rocks when agitating

Hi there.
My washing machine sounds like there are rocks in the tub when it is agitating. And the clothes are still quite wet when spin cycle finishes. (I have to run an extra spin cycle to get them dry.) This happens just every 3rd load or so. Belt looks good. What's next? How do I remove the agitator?
Thanks so much!

SOURCE: Removing Tub from Maytag Atlantis Washer

I do believe that when you remove the four bolts, it should come out. Sometimes you have to use a little force and shimmy left to right to get it to break loose (no hammers please) especially if you have a lot of scum build-up from soap. They can really be a bear sometimes to remove. Maybe put your foot in the bottom of the tub and hit it on both sides to work it free. Good Luck!!! Jim

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

Have a Maytag Atlantis model MAVT634AWW- on all cycles it makes a loud noise like bearings grinding- what could it be and how can I fix it-Thankyou

The first place to look is if something has gotten trapped between the agitator and the drum. Typically coins etc can find there way near or under but not cause a problem. If something has caught it would have to be metal or hard plastic. The agitator can be removed.

Second place is to see if something has become stuck in one of the holes of the drum. It would have to be like a wire/nail that is scraping against the tub held in place by the drum.

Last resort! Being a Maytag you may have a longer then expected warranty on the moving parts. If you do it might be about time to get the Maytag Guy off his b---.

i believe all you have to do is put your fingers underneath the bottom of the agitator and pull up and the whole agitator pops up to remove it out of the tub.

Missing sock in Maytag Atlantis

it's a possibility that the socks have gone under the agitator but unlikely that they have disappeared alltogether. You can remove the agitator to see if they are there. Tha'ts the best I can tell ya Good Luck

From what I read on here, the seal nut doesn't have to be remove in order to remove the inner tub.

I tried every, I even hammer the shaft down from the inside of the tub but still no luck. Can someone help, thanks.
