My Maytag A710 spins, but the agitator doesn't

My Maytag A710 spins during the spin cycle, but the agitator doesn't move during the wash cycle.

Model A710, serial number 614565 JT. We have had this washing machine since Christ was a corporal, but maybe the time has come to buy a new machine. Parts may not be available to fix the problem described above. Comments?

There is a screw near the base of the agitator. If it is missing replace it with a stainless steel screw. If this is a machine that is older than 25 years, you will have to replace the rubber ring on the agitator shaft.

SOURCE: Installing damper pads on a Maytag a710 washer

by damper pads you mean three curved felt pads that come in one package.if yes yes i can tell you but it wont be the funnest thing you ever did .on a service call i would complete this job in about one hour,but you have more time than i. had to move on to the next call and did not want to return[to let glue dry enough and then reassemiable]here goes older maytag two belts under neath! 1 remove front panel and screws from top, so can hinge back. 2 there are three or four big springs that go from tub to floor.next,you need to mark the spot that the nuts are tightened too on those eye bolts that springs are attached too. take black tape and wrap around treads above the nut on the eye bolts so will know where to re tighten too. 3 loosen and undo hose at tub that goes to pump and at top of washer tub where water comes in .4 then under neath the washer remove those nuts that you applied black tape to the eye bolts i thinks 7/16 or 3/8[will have to spin belts off also]now tub should move freely.5 here's the trick,i use a 4'' round pvc coupler on its end and place under neath the washer,center trainee pulley and pull the washer up onto it , this then lifts the whole tub assemblie up so now can get to snubber pads.6 peal off old pads and clean ,glue in new pads and let set for long time[hours],[i did not have that time on service calls so when droped tub back down,some time pads moved]7 when dry add your silicone grease that came with pads.8 put unit back together.now if tub to loose you can tighten those nuts on the eye bolts more,but don't too much because tub dose need to move so the energy when tub out of balance can be transferred to springs and not all the way thru to the bottom deck,which would happen if springs to tight.i hope this helps God bless ,tom.....ps the glue l used for pads was the same glue i use for dryer felt seals.that glue came with the felt seals so i always had it around[free] im not sure which glue to advise you to use,but needs to be good stuff,tom.........also if i have been helpfil please remember to help me with my ratings

Installed new belts, machine will not agitate


Transmission is bad. The transmission is not used during a spin but it is used during agitation. Check your warranty, the transmission maybe covered for 10 years for parts only and 5 years for parts and labor

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only


Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
