Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
I have a Maytag SAV-5 model, I think. That is what the use and care guide says. I noticed my washer was making a grinding type noise so when I checked it I found that when it fills with water and starts to wash the agitator pops up and doesn't turn. I can push it back down and turn it slightly and it acts like it locks into place but one light tug up with my fingers dislodges it. What can I do to keep it down and in place?
I have the same problem with my agitator keeps popping off...I call the company and they said i would have to replace it...I did too put super glue on it like the other person did, My question is how long do you think the super glue will hold because i did order a new one.. wondering if i should send it back or keep it on hand.. It cost $70.00

I also have a maytag with the same problem the lifting of the agitator when it is full. I called the repair man and told him my problem, he advised me to buy a new one!! with parts and labor it would cost me close to the same amount. I am trying the super glue first.

This all sounds so familiar. I am in the same boat as everyone else. My clothes however are not being washed properly and I am on the verge of buying a new washer. I have tried everything. Sounds like the only real solution is to just buy the whole new agitator.

As far as I can tell, the upper agitator just wears out where it snaps on the inner shaft over time. This is what I did. I wrapped the upper part of the inner shaft ( where it has the slots ) with duck tape ( about 2 wraps all the way around the top ). Just to build it up some. I then used a knife to cut the duck tape where the slots are. I pushed the upper agitator back on. It's a bit hard to push it back on because of the tape, but that's what I wanted. The agitator now fits tight and stays on. It's been about a week so far, and all is well. I'm sure over time I might have to replace the tape, but so be it.

I sent this diagram to see if maybe you were looking in the wrong area for the hold down bolt. It should sit down inside the auger tower after you remove the fabric softener cup (be sure you remove all the cup assembly on some models, they can separate). I havent seen a Maytag (or Maytag hybrid (i.e Amama) or others) not have a hold down bolt, but I could imagine there might be. Let me know how it goes, and if you need any further information. I will keep looking for more information for you as well. Jim
