There is a screw near the base of the agitator. If it is missing replace it with a stainless steel screw. If this is a machine that is older than 25 years, you will have to replace the rubber ring on the agitator shaft.

I have a SIMPSON ENCORE 555 heavy duty washing machine. It will do a normal wash cycle, but when it comes to the spin cycle, it doesn't distribute the washing around the drum and hence won't spin. any...

Hi just read your posting.Now does the washing tangle around the agitator?In your posting you mentioned the washing not distributing around the drum.Could you confirm that your machine is a top loader for me,because the word "drum and distribute" are terms for a front loader.If your machine is a top loader which I think it is then the problem could be your brake arm or spin coil is not operating.Please reply and let me know if the clothes are tangling around the agitator.Looking forward to your reply.

Agitator does NOT spin along w/ drum during spin cycle

If this is the old style that uses a belt, it is not worth fixing. But the problem sounds like the wig-wam is not functioning properly. Most of the time it was a wire broken since it moves back and forth constantly.

Could you please tell me how to remove the agitator for cleaning on a Maytag top loading performa machine heavy duty.super size 3 speeds quiet series 100 13 cycles Thank you Bob Clark

The agitator on a Maytag Performa comes off by removing the center post cap and dispenser by pulling on it. Locate the agitator bolt and loosen (you may need to hold the agitator in place while loosening). With the bolt removed, the agitator will lift off.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Agitator free spins

Remove the top cap on the agitator and see if the bolt has come loose. If it is not there, the agitator will come loose from the gear case shaft and free spin.
