Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the transmission in your unit is bad,it has internal gears and the ones involved in the agitation are broke or bad, to replace the transmision is a lengthy process, your best bet is to just scrap it and get a new washer. I don't know if you know this but maytag company is no longer in business. They were purchased by Whirlpool back in November of 2006. One of the reasons is all the poor quality of their appliances. I am a technician that has been doing this for 15 years. The best unit I have seen to date is the Whirlpool Duet. I hardly ever have to work on them. Sorry for the bad news. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Broken agitator
If the main shaft were broken, the entire agitator assembly would come out. Usually, there is a plastic adapter that goes from the shaft to the interior of the agitator and is splined to mate with the shaft. A bolt commonly holds the two together, but usually has an uncommon drive head. There may be a removable plastic cap that either unscrews or just pulls off. Hope this helps!
