Loose agitator Maytag LAT2600AAE

Seems like a lot of people are having problems with the loose agitators.  Same for me.  I can completely remove the agitator and I don't see any hole (s) for a set screw.

Re: Loose agitator Maytag LAT2600AAE

Look toward the bottom end of the agitator. There should be a small indentation where a 10mm screw is. This screw holds the agitator the the transmission shaft. Sometimes the screw works loose and needs to be tightened.

The agitator seems loose on my Maytag top loading machine.. model LAT9206BAE it started this after one of my kids overloaded the machine.. works fine but makes a loud clanging noise while washing.. almost...

Use a 1/4 inch nut driver to tighten the set screw to the agitator shaft. It is about 3 inches up from the bottom of the agitator on the side of the agitator.

Maytag washing machine, model LAT2600AAE, stopped draining water in spin cycle. The motor agitates cycle but will not drain water. What can I do? I'm not a pro at fixing these things.

On the underside of the machine, you'll see the belts from the motor to both the drum and the water pump. If the belt to the pump is intact, check to see if it is loose. If so, you'll see 3 screws holding the pump housing in place. Try to readjust the pump so the belt is a little more snug. This worked for mine that was having the same problem. You may need to remove the front panel to reach the drain hose to drain your drum 1st - have a couple buckets and towels handy as well as someone else to run and dump your full buckets. Good luck.

Washer will not agitate.

Pop the top cover on the agitator.
Remove the screw inside.
Remove the agitator and inspect it for damage where it attaches to the transmission shaft.

Washing machine won't agitate.

Depending on type of washer, typical top load Maytag, motor turns in opposite direction for wash and spin. Your problem will no doubt be the transmission.

Agitator loose

Just reach down between the basket and the agitator, and lift really hard straight up. Be sure not to hit yourself in the head when it pops loose. GE agitators just snap on to the air-bell underneith. Be sure that bell isnt loose after you remove. Good Luck!!!!
