Remove dual agitator

The agitator in your Maytag Dependable Care washer uses a back-and-forth motion to move your clothes from the top of the washtub to the bottom and back to the top again. The fins on the side of the agitator help facilitate this movement. When one of the fins sustains damage or the agitator fails to move, you must remove the agitator to make the necessary repairs.Disconnect your Maytag Dependable Care washer from the electrical wall outlet. Turn off the valves supplying water to the appliance.
2 Open the washer's lid to access the agitator. Look for a 1/4-inch hex screw recessed in an opening about three-quarters down the side of the agitator.
3 Insert a 1/4-inch nut driver into the opening in the side of the agitator. Fit the nut driver over the head of the screw. Turn the screw counterclockwise to remove it.Grab the bottom of the agitator with both hands. Pull the agitator from the bottom of the washtub.

Why is it displaying f2 code and will not drain?

The F2 fault code indicates a problem with the washer's drain system, and you must troubleshoot the problem to determine how to fix the washer and clear the code.
Clogged Drain Hose The drain hose on a Kenmore washer should remain free of obstructions so the water drains from the washtub. the drain hose behind the washer can impede the flow of water from the washer. A drain hose inserted more than 4 1/2 inches into a floor or wall standpipe drain system can cause the water to siphon back into the washtub.
Stuck Water-Level Pressure Switch Your Kenmore washer uses a water-level pressure switch in the control panel to detect the level of water inside the washtub. You can find the pressure switch behind the control panel in top-load models or attached to the inside wall of front-load models. The round switch is approximately 3 inches in diameter with a clear or black plastic tube connected to the bottom or side of the switch. The tube runs from the pressure switch to the exterior washtub. As the water fills the washtub, it changes the air pressure inside the tube and lets the switch know when the water has reached a predetermined level. A stuck contact on the pressure switch can stop the advancement of the wash cycle and keep the water from draining. A few taps on the top of the switch with a screwdriver handle can release the contact and fix the problem causing the F2 error code.

The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine is atop-loading clothes washer. The washer has several cycles to choose from,including cycles for washing normal clothes, permanent press items, delicateand items marked "Hand Wash." To do its job, thewashing machine relies on an agitator, located in the center of the wash tub.The agitator rotates during the wash cycle, moving the clothes around the washtub so that they are cleaned equally.

My washing is still soppy wet, won't spin, won't work only makes a humming sound. I cleaned out the hoses, drain pipes etc but still not working. How do i reset the machine.

Humming means ur motor is trying hard to start spinning! Either ur CAPACiTOR is not good anymore or the washtub is stuck( something kept it from spinning, might be a clothe stuck under the the barrel washer)!
Try to check on those parts!

The clothes are being pulled under the agitator, getting tangled and grease/oil marks on the clothes. What can be done to correct this?

If the clothes are being pulled under the rotating plate, you need to replace the plate because the plastic-sealing-edge strip is not pressing tightly against the inside of the washtub. I did this and all has been good for a year. The grease COULD be from the rotating parts under the plate, but there is also a post on this Fixya site that has to do with replacing a transmission seal. I have not had the dirty-streaks problem, so I cannont comment on a fix for that. BUT, replacing the rotating plate WILL fix the issue with pulling clothes under it.

I have a Kenmore Elite washer. It will not spin on it's own. If I turn the tub and close the lid I can get it to go through the spin cycle.

More than likely your clutch/brake for your washtub transmission is going out/is out. A way to check it in washing machines is to have it run up to full speed or near full speed, wet your hands, and then cup your hand around the very top of the rotating washtub with only your 4 fingers inside the washtub, thumb outside on the non rotating part of the washtub and slowly attempt to stop the tub from spinning by gripping it. Generally if your clutch/brake is going out you'll be able to significantly slow or even stop the washtub from spinning before your fingers get too warm from friction. Make absolutely sure your fingers at the very least are wet, this reduces friction to your fingers without which could burn your fingers.

Fixing the clutch is not for anyone but very mechanically inclined and professionals. If the clutch is bad, take it to a qualified repairman.

Transmission oil is leaking into the basket of wash and staining clothing. the unit is 3 years old. repair service said to contact you for repairs since it is covered for 5 years.

sounds like the water seal in front of the drum bearings has failed causing grease from the bearings to get into the washtub this is usually accompanied by noisy spin cycle and rumbling noises from the drum when it is turning

Clothing slipped under washtub

It's quite a long process to remove the wash tub! Read all of this before starting - including the part about new parts #1-unplug the machine \ turn off water! #2-the top of the cabinet must be lifted from the front (slip a putty knife into the front groove to release the right & left clips - about 6" from corners) #3-carefully lift top up from front until it is vertical (support it so it won't fall) #4-undo clips and hoses that hold tub top ring in place and carefully remove it #5-plastic top (cap) of agitator in bottom center of tub must be removed (short screw driver should unclip it at four small holes) #6-remove 6 bolts from around inside of area that was under cap and remove plastic washtub bottom as well as center plastic dome #7-now center keeper nut must be removed from universal joint for agitator - now the whole steel tub should be able to be lifted off of the splines (pay attention to the relationship of the splines so you can put it back just as it was!! Now you should be able to clear everything from the area that was below the tub! Also check the outlet for any other clothing items!! when this all goes back together, its recommended that all new rubber washers and seals be used to make sure that the universal joint assembly stays dry!! GOOD LUCK
