Maytag Quiet Plus 2 cloths washer - aggitator drain plugged up

I have Maytag Quiet Plus 2 cloths washer, good unit. However, the drain in the aggitator for the fabric softenr keeps getting plugged up with lint, then it cloggs up with the fabric softer and lint, so the softener won't drain properly during the spin cycle. Is there a way to open up the plastic aggitator so I can get to the clog? Have tried a bent-straight clothes hanger, but the metal is too big to get in the grooves, or to grab the smaller pieces of lint. Any suggestions?

Ok grab hold of the top of agitator about 4 inches from the top and just pull that top right off.Hit it at an angle and it will pop right off .Dont be shy ,its just plastic that is snapped onto plastic.To put it back on just line it up on top and Smack It back on.Easy Ha???Youll be able to clean it alot easier now.If you dont use fabric softener your problem will be gone for ever .Try using less and mix water in it first.I'll help you if you need further help..

There is cloth stuck under the aggitator on my Capacity plus Admiral washing machine. Model #lnc6766B71 how do I remove the aggitator


As a general rule Admiral is a VERY inexpensive machine, so you may be better off with a new one if the parts prove expensive. MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG MACHINE.. Be careful the agitator doesn't come loose suddenly when you are removing it, I have seen more than one bruise on the face from this.. hold your head to the side when pulling it off. http://www.rakerappliancerepair.com/NephewClub/Diagnostics/Washers/Maytag/Maytag%20TL%20Bulletin%20TDL-0086-B.pdf

Where is the model number on maytag quiet plus ii washer


Posted on November 16, 2012 M/F FREE VIDEOS, RESOURCES & RECOMMENDATIONS *NEW* Search Parts For Your Maytag Washer On RepairClinic Every Maytag appliance, including Oversize Capacity Plus and Quiet Plus appliances such as washers and dryers, is manufactured with a product label that displays details about the appliance such as its model and serial numbers. The model number is typically located on the top left corner of the label. Although the location of the product labels varies by appliance type and model, finding the model number for your Oversize Capacity Plus and Quiet Plus appliance shouldn't take long. Maytag only attaches the product label to certain areas of an appliance. *Open the lid on your Oversize Capacity Plus or Quiet Plus washer and look for the product label on the inside bottom right corner of the lid. *Check for the label behind the control panel on the top back of your washer. *Look on the back main portion of your washer, also known as the base frame, on the left.

Top loading washer that won't aggitate, or rinse.


without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay

Maytag turns on but won't aggitate


ahh sounds like the maytag drain pump, it seizes up and over heats the motor. look for belt under unit, pump is front right or rear right. buy the pump asm. They sell a pump by itself but you want the assembly at the same price, its a newer design

Water fills the tub then nothing happens.


it does not aggitate? Thats the cycle that allows the water to wash the clothes. It may be broken, I have had that happen a couple times. I would take the aggitator off and see if the teeth in the groves are worn out, It happen's when used alot. Commen problem and easy to replace.
