I've got the same problem. The diagram is a bit deceiving because it appears to show the agitator/auger as one piece. However, the bolt only holds the agitator (lower portion) and then the auger slips in place over that. The fabric softener cup then snaps to the top of the auger.

Best I can tell is that the slotted 'ears' on top of the agitator are worn thus preventing a secure fit between the agitator and auger. I just finished putting some hard thumb pressure on each of the ears and bent them outward some. The auger fits much tighter now and I'm doing a test run of clothes. It is holding but I will probably have to replace what they describe as the agitator / auger assembly, costs $53.54. I don't see any other fix but would appreciate further input.

Thanks

Check for the tighten nut to agatator is tighten. If agatator is lose it floats up and down during the wash. There is a lock ring (rubber) on the shaft that holds the agatator on, check this, if off replace thid . If the agatator is still in good shape can still use it , if not pull of and replace it. This work is't hard to do.

SOURCE: Maytag washing machine, model LAT2600AAE, stopped

On the underside of the machine, you'll see the belts from the motor to both the drum and the water pump. If the belt to the pump is intact, check to see if it is loose. If so, you'll see 3 screws holding the pump housing in place. Try to readjust the pump so the belt is a little more snug. This worked for mine that was having the same problem. You may need to remove the front panel to reach the drain hose to drain your drum 1st - have a couple buckets and towels handy as well as someone else to run and dump your full buckets. Good luck.

Maytag washing machine, model LAT2600AAE, stopped draining water in spin cycle. The motor agitates cycle but will not drain water. What can I do? I'm not a pro at fixing these things.

The agitator is no longer attached


There is a small set screw located lower on the agitator. Locate the set screw and tighten. This should solve the problem.

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance


Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

I have a Maytag performer series machine,the main agitator is screwed down properly but the corkscrew agitatorthat is attachedto the main agitator completely cuts loose and floats to the top , i don"t...


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.

The should be a bolt that goes thu the center that holds that down with the bottom part of the agiatator.. it might have pulled loose or rounded out the whole for the top part here is a link and a pic http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImagePageJava.shtml?productTypeID=0153200&brandID=3048&modelDesc=WASHER&modelNumber=SAV365ZAWW&documentID=M0512408&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PV&titleType=TUB%2C%20INNER%20%26%20OUTER%20%28SERIES%2012%29&titleID=00010&
