If this is a Maytag Performa or Atlantis model all you have to do is remove the center cap on the agitator by pulling on it and locate the agitator bolt underneath. Loosen the bolt, and the agitator should pull straight up.
If this is a Maytag Dependable Care series there will be 1/4 inch screw along the side of the agitator towards the bottom. Remove this screw and the agitator will pull straight up.
I hope this helps you.
PS If the problem is due to the build up of fabric softener, soak in some hot water to loosen it up. Fabric softener is essentially a form of liquid wax and it is common for it to accumulate and clog the dispenser in this manner. Periodic cleaning is recommended.

The belt turn the pulley, but the height of the pulley is worn out so it didn't push up a mechanism to release the brake and to engage with the clutch to make the spin.
You have to takethe shaft out to study how it works then it makes sense on what I 'm talking.
The pulley cost only $11 but it is a major laboring exercise. It is a good learning to have hands on to this problem. Good luck on replacing the pulley.

Maytag makes very dependable machines. They are fairly easy to repair and parts are easy to find. If I was in the market for a used washer, a Maytag would be my first choice. Since its used there is no guaranty that the thing isn't going to need repairs. If you can see it run through a cycle before buying it would be a plus. My first washer was a mid seventies model Maytag. I had two minor repairs twice in 15 years and its been working ever since at my buddy's. I hope this helps you.
