I have a Maytag Centennial washing machine 2010 model, don't see number. The agitator does not turn.

Is the base of the agitator turning but not the top? Or is the base not turning either. If base is moving back and forth, then dogs weren't installed correctly, or agitator was reassembled incorrectly. If the base isn't moving back and forth, then the splines inside base have stripped out and base will have to be replaced.

Washing machine agitator not moving and doesn't empty

1 - Remove the Agitator
first step in fixing your agitator is to take the item out of the washing machine. This is not as easy as you might imagine, since the agitator is placed in there pretty firmly. One option is to fill the washing machine half-full of water, and then put a string rope around the neck of the agitator. Using a piece of wood or lumber, gently raise the agitator up, in a lever fashion
You can then inspect the insides of the agitator.
2 - Open Up the Agitator
Next you will have to open the agitator so that you can see inside. There should be a screw on the base of the agitator which can be removed using a screwdriver. There may also be a large bolt at the other side which can be manipulated using the wrench. Take these parts off, and the agitator should split in half.
3 - Fix the Problems
Once that is done, you will be able to see inside the mechanics of the agitator. There may be a loose wire somewhere within the system, or you may find that the screw part of the agitator has been broken. Check the paddles of the agitator paddles to make sure that they are not cracked or broken, as this can prevent it from turning. While you have the agitator out of the washing machine, you should also check the central pole on which it sits, in order to make sure that it is completely clean.
4 - finish the project
Before you finish the project you will have to replace the agitator. Replace the screws and the bolt, so that the agitator forms a complete piece again. Take the string, and lower it down the central pole. Your agitator should settle into the bottom, although you may wish to give it a push to check.

Agitator will move while empty, but when you put a load of clothes in it will not move...

Sounds like the (agitating dogs) are worn out. These are little arms with grippers at the end that grab the agitator . It spins free one way but the grippers grab the base of the agitator and spins it the other way. This is how you get the agitating motion. You can buy these at a repair shop for about $5. The cap at the top of the agitator will need to be taken off, just unscrew it. once it'a off you can see at the bottom a bolt that will need to be removed, once it is removed you can the pull the whole assembly out. The agitating dogs will be at the base of the shaft. These are made of a plastic/resin and wear out due to being old or overloading. There are diagrams on the net to show you exactly what they look like, search (agitating dogs.

How to disassemble the agitator after removing from the tub. The cam and dawgs need replaced. Agitator top and bottom appear pressed together.

After you remove the cap on top there will be a 7/16 nut. Remove that nut. The whole thing should slide up and off. If you put the agitator on the ground and stand on two sides of the base and give a quick ****, It will seperate. Slide the sleeve away from the dogs and replace them. The top snaps back together, slde back on spindle and replace the 7/16 bolt. Replace cap.

Agitator not moving--seems loose

This washer has what we call a bionic agitator and this agitator has a 2 parts:
it has a base and a top section.
IF the BASE IS NOT WORKING AT ALL, please have the transimssion checked and also check the coupling.
IF the BASE is working and the top is NOT
THEN replace the 4 plastic AGITATOR DOGS that are in the agitator.

Remove the CAP from the agitator...remove any plastic cap.
Get a socket wrench and get the socket that removes the bolt.
remove bolt...
PULL the agitator from the base and separate the top from the bottom.
Take the top and turn it upside down to remove the platic interior part that holds these 4 dogs. REMOVE the old dos and replace with new and do a reverse engineeriong putting agitator back.

Agitator now moving VERY slow one way, making loud grinding noise

Hi, this is a bad transmission gear box that is stripped at the moment. i recommend purchasing a agitator kit and a new transmission Assembly and clutch as well. this will fix your issues

The tower of the washing machine isnt spining, but the base of the tower is.

The "tower" that you are referring to I assume is the agitator. If your agitator isn't moving, the agitator dogs (or teeth you mentioned) are the general suspect. They are made of plastic and typically wear out. The heavier the use, the quicker they wear out. If the teeth on the inside wall of the agitator are still in good shape, the dogs can be replaced without replacing the entire agitator and can be purchased at most appliance parts stores for less than $10. I hope this helps.
