Question about Maytag LAT2300 Top Load Washer
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
If you can use a mirror carefully under the machine and see that the motor is actually turning both belts when it is supposed to be agitating. (CAUTION the pump belt is in the very front of the machine base.) I suspect that it is driving the belts normally.
Inside the transmission there is a nylon gear that drives the agitator shaft for agitation. It sounds like the nylon gear has stripped gear teeth. This can be repaired and parts are available but it is a major undertaking, time consuming and not cheap.
To repair this if the nylon gear has failed the top, agitator, inner and outer tubs, large lower pulley and transmission must be removed. I will say this is not your average repair. Let me just add that this washer can still serve a long service life if repaired.
(I personally own a LAT9700 and just spent the time and money to overhaul it 2 weeks ago) Your call on having it repaired or replacement i.e evaluation / comparison time..... . This repair if done correctly by a seasoned tech takes well over 2 hours of shop time so keep that labor expense in mind. I have worked on Maytags for over 40 years that started with the Family business.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
