This is usually caused by a bad transmission. Depending on washer age this will be expensive. Some machines have a 5 year PART ONLY warranty on the transmission so you pay for home call and labor. If over 5 years it probably isn't worth it . Check your owners book for any extended part warranty.

The agitator is only working in one direction so the washing is getting tangled


The top portion of the wash tub agitator is designed to rotate in the clockwise direction. It should be intermittent. Turn stop turn stop ....in its normal operation.

There is a set of plastic cams that allow for this function. Below the top agitator the lower agitator goes back and forth. With a short load the water just reaches the upper agitator. Try short load. Other possibility the tub is under filled try increasing the water level.

Machine is working but clothes are not getting clean


Hello,
Check the agitator. you should be able to, by hand, easily turn it in one direction without turning the tub while the other direction turns the tub also. If the tub does not turn in one direction with the agitator the you need a new clutch dog assembly or the whole agitator. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Maytag Performa washer drum turns with agitator. Also the brake doesn't stop the drum at end of cycle or when cover lifted.


The first thing to check is the clutch. It's supposed to lock the inner tub and drive the transmission (agitator) when the motor turns in one direction, and spin the tub when the motor turns in the other direction. It's also possible the agitator drive shaft coming out of the transmission and the concentric tub drive shaft are frozen together (worst case) - this is usually caused by a bad bearing seal allowing water to leak into the shaft.

Lifting the lid during the spin cycle should disconnect power to the motor - maybe what you see is the tub continuing to spin because the transmission is acting as a flywheel. Either that, or the lid switch actuator is not working properly.

Washer won't agitate or spin


The transmission is dead!
It's not worth fixing!
If it's 10 years old or more, better off replacing it with a newer machine which will be much more efficient!

Washer does not agitage the clothing. The clothing rotates in one direction within the washer tub.


Hold the inner tub and turn it bothways. if it is free in both directions you have a bad bearing. If it turns in one direction only, the bearing is good.
Your agitator has a series of interlocking teeth on the inside which lock onto the corresponding teeth of the motor shaft. If these plastic agitator teeth are worn it wont grip the drive shaft, hence, no agitation.
