PAV2300 agitator bolt keeps coming loose

Loctite sounds the order of the day. Don't overtighten once the thread lock is in place and allow to cure before using machine.

LAT5000AAW model Maytag washer will not spin or agitate and i dont know how to take the back or front of

I am not sure on this model, but see if you can take the top control panel off first. This should be held with a couple of screws, then tilt it back and this may give you acces to the screws holding the cover on. The outside cover should be one piece and it removes from the front. If this is correct on this model then you should only be left with a frame that holds the tub and the motor should be underneath the drum. I would check the coupling to the motor and make sure it is not worn out, this will keep the tub from spinning and agitating. You shouldn't even have to move it out or disconnet the water lines to do this.I hope I could help.

My washer doesn't agitate but make some noise and looks like motor is running it does spin and drain i had already replaced the agitator assembly with the new one

Some of these agitators use small plastic tabs to make them work. these may be broken, they tend to wear out after a few years. these tabs are located inside the agitator housing, simply remove the agitator and look to see if these are in bad shape

How do I remove the agitator on a Maytag washer?

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

My pav2300 fills spins but will not adjatate and makes noisewhen it trys...thanks mike

It sounds like the belt is all right, maybe the drive clutch is broken. It has plastic lugs that break off. One piece of plastic sandwiched between two pieces of rubber.

Maytag won't spin or agitate

I have had the same problem and found that the teeth on the under side of the agitator had been worn down to nothing... I assume this is from years of over loading (not from me) and so the agitator could not spin any more... i would tighten the bolt that holds th agitator on and it would come loose after a few loads. So my solution was to get a little bit longer bolt and newer plastic washer and tighten it as tight as i could and it seemed to work. Versus buying a new agitator base that would cost about $20-$30 and would have to wait for the part to be ordered. hope this helps
