How to remove agitator from Maytag A410 top loading washing machine

I just need to remove the agitator from my washing machine. I took the cap off, expecting to see a nut that I could remove to get the agitator off, but there is no nut. It appears to be just stuck on the spindle, but I can't pull it off. I tried wedging the bottom up, twisting, pulling, turning, hammering on it... but it won't come off. Is there a special tool I need, or something that I'm not seeing?

Re: How to remove agitator from Maytag A410 top loading...

Ok here's a trick i learned from my instructors for removing stuck agitators try at own risk first it looks like there there may be a set screw from looking at the part on web looks like it may be just slightly under where the tube ends and the vanes start im going to give you a web site so you can look just enter your mod num and click agitator you will see what i mean but im not there so you will have to judge ok here's the trick put a stick across the top of the tub so one end is sticking out longer than the other get two pieces of rope and run them under the agitator and over the stick tie down as tight as you can then slide the rope up as close to the middle of the agitator as you can and jerk up on long side of stick let me know if this helps 17

  • 1 First you must determine the brand of washing machine you have.

  • 2 To remove agitator on a whirlpool washer, remove top cap from agitator, Next you will find a translucent cap, remove this with your pliers. Then you will see a 3/8 inch nut, Back this nut out and you can then remove the agitator. Be Careful though, inside the agitator where the bolt has been removed is a white piece of plastic that holds the "dog ears". These dog ears are what lets the agitator move in one direction and locks when the transmission moves back in the other direction.

    Maytag and Admiral washers are very similar to remove. General Electric, (GE) is different, To remove a GE agitator simply pull upwards very hard, GE agitators snap on. Be careful not to pop it into your mouth, that really hurts.

  • 3 Remove agitator, repair or replace and reset, GE just push on, you will be able to see the groves to line up the agitator to the hub. For whirlpool place bolt into dog ear guide, and set down on top of transmission post and tighten, be careful that dog ears, do not get out of alignment. That's it.

    Buy F150 parts.

    The washer will not go into High Spin. I had the problem before, when a penny was lodged in one of the agitators. I need to know, how to remove the 2 agitators in the washing tub, to remove any debrei

    You have to pry off the caps on the tumblers. Try not to produce any burs on them so on reinstall they dont snag the wash load.

    Once you have the caps off you take a #20 Torx driver and back out the tumbler retaining screw the SM does not call that out.

    Page 37 of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual will detail this?

    Do you have the SM? If not join this forum and download SM 16022808 Maytag Top Load Neptune Washer Service Manual

    i believe all you have to do is put you fingers underneath it grab the sides and pull up,that will remove the whole agitator,if you want to change the dogs,pop off the top fabric softener dispenser and take out the 7/16 bolt and remove middle section,change your parts and put it back the same way you took it apart

    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.
