Re: My Maytag Insignia Top Load Washer
Not necessarily, When replacing the transmission the important things to replace is the transmissions and the seals. If i had the model and serial i could adv you of the exact part numbers. The serial contains a special series number for parts. You can visit apdepot.com and put your complete model there to pull up parts list. But tub is not necessary unless damaged. However the seal between the transmission and tub is, which is included in the seal sets, you will see this on the website when you search lists.

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya If your Maytag top load washer is not agitating properly,
you will need to check each one of the parts below until
you find out which part you will need to replace to get your
washer working properly again. The free videos in these pages will show you how to do each one of the repairs the right way.
Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya The tub seal is the most common thing that causes Maytag washers to
leak. This is unfortunate because the tub seal is an expensive repair
job and not one I would suggest doing yourself. I say this because it is
complicated and requires special tools to perform this job. To check if
the tub seal is bad, first remove the front panel by removing the two
screws from the bottom of the front panel. If you have a newer model,
prize the bottom clips with a screwdriver. Then pull the bottom of the
panel until the top clips release. Then start the washer and watch for a
leak around transmission where it goes through the tub. If it does leak
then the tub seal is bad and needs replacing. If you have the tool or
willing to buy it

If the tub seal doesn't, leak you probably found the leak while performing this test.
There are two methods used to hold the agitator in place. The first is a main bolt at the top of the agitator under the softener cup. The second is a small bolt located on the lower portion of the agitator. To access the transmission the tubs will have to be removed.
I believe your machine is equipped with a "snubber plate" under the transmission. A lot of Maytag top-loaders are. This is a white teflon ring that is used as the wash tub and transmission support and assists in dampening vibrations during the spin cycles. It's located on the inside case of the machine under your transmission. When the snubber goes bad they generally start to squeak. They cannot be lubricated and must be replaced. If you try to oil them, they will eventually disintegrate. The snubber costs less than $10 to purchase. I hope this helps.
