Question about Maytag Washing Machines
With the Maytag Performa series, the auger is held by a pressure fit only - no screws. Mine failed after about 6 years. There is no (easy) way to repair this problem. The top auger does not stay attached to the post, and it floats off the post while washing... I ended up ordering a new one from the Sears 1-800 number. Easy to replace, and it comes with both the post and auger. Costs about $110, but certainly a lot cheaper than buying a new machine. The part does not come with the top cap for fabric softener, so be sure to save the old one. You do need a fairly long extension for your ratchet wrench to unscrew the attached bolt, but it is fairly easy to do.
