Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

Maytag washer-LAT7304AAL-about 15 years old. At first it would agitate for a couple of minutes and stop, now has stop agitating. It will progress on through the cycle. I was able to pull the knob to one side and put something under it to hold it that way and it actually ran a normal cycle. Any ideas? Is it worth fixing?

Good day,
If you need to wedge the timer to get a normal cycle, then the timer has gone out. Suggest you replace it along with a new knob, spring and clip. The parts house will point out how to install the knob. Was/is a really good washer.

I received information about how to fix my agitator not working on my GE washer. But now I need info on how to get to the agitator. My model WWA8955 is different from any other GE top loading washers...


Oops sorry about that my fault for not searching parts on your model befroe answering. What i wrote about is what ge has made for the past 10 years or so your washer is very old!
to remove that agitator which doesnt use that part i talked about (sorry) so what you do it remove the bolt from top of inner agaitator and pull that agaitaor off. ITs been on thier for 15 or more years and will take some tugging perhaps and if lucky will come out right away after bolt removed. on the inside of the top of that inner agitator will be a coupler that works similar to the one if the vid. i showed you. that coupler needs to be knocked out and replace the spline coupler. Need to check though if center shaft of transmission is stripped before ordering and replacing that spline if the transmission is ground down the transmission would need to be replaced however since its so old the part is no longer available..
The part number for that spilne is WH1X2641
once again i apoligize for thinks it was less that 15 years old

Pull up on the fabric softener dispenser in the top of the agitator.
Set it aside.
Remove the agitator mounting screw from inside the agitator.
Pull up on the agitator base to remove the agitator.
Remove the magnet.
Reverse the above order to re-install the agitator.

Maytag top loading washer will not agitate


My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric

I have a 15 year old top load whirlpool washer that is not agitating, the thing in the middle barely spins, Help Vickie


If only the top portion of the agitator doesn't move , then it has bad agitator dogs . If the lower portion doesn't move , then the washer has a bad coupling which connects the motor to the transmission . Both are relatively easy to replace .

Your motor/clutch combo is on the way out. The motor is overheating and turning off. Cools down and restarts.
You need a new motor/clutch combo or a new washer. I do not recommend another GE.

Neptune washer will not go past the first wash cycle


All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This will require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.
