Question about Maytag SAV3655A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I'm trying to find out how to get the agitator off so I can get to the outside tub. It has a crack and I'm going to try to fix it. I tried to download the manual for the maytag website, but it won't download it, it just goes to a kitchenaid search site that does nothing.

This is sometimes difficult as the agitator is somewhat pressed on. There is a special tool that can be used but it can be accomplished my hand.

The agitator is only working in one direction so the washing is getting tangled


The top portion of the wash tub agitator is designed to rotate in the clockwise direction. It should be intermittent. Turn stop turn stop ....in its normal operation.

There is a set of plastic cams that allow for this function. Below the top agitator the lower agitator goes back and forth. With a short load the water just reaches the upper agitator. Try short load. Other possibility the tub is under filled try increasing the water level.

What's the cause of my washer's agitation and noise problem?


Possibly a bad basket drive. Or something is wrapped around the shaft under the tub or something is in the pump.

This is for an LW7503W2B washer. We have water on the floor during agitate with large loads. The water is comming over the edge of the tub. I have noticed the tub rotates in what I would call a slow...


I had the same problem. You need a brake kit. it holds the drum still while in the agitate mode. the centrifical force of the water during that slow spin is causing the water to spill over the top of your drum. easy and cheap fix.

Kenmore 90 series washer. As the tub tries to


Hi,
It sounds like you have a bad timer. If you change the position of the timer and it does not change what is going on the the timer has to be bad. However I am not certain what you mean by the agitator turns all the time. Is it agitating while spinning and draining?

Washer has a very musty smell. Trying to raise the top to clean inner tank but it will not budge. Does the top raise on the WJSR2070B model. Do not want to break it


Yes, but I would advise to try a washer cleaner before going through all the work to dissassemble your machine.
Use the longest, hottest cycle. You may have to run the cycle with a cleaner twice to remove all the built up soap scum inside the washer.

You could check out http://www.smellywasher.com/ for one possiblity. Others are " Washer Magic " or these: 73b1c2a.jpg fb3071a.jpg
If you still want to tackel the dissassembly: The washer front comes off by using a putty knife to push in the two retaining clips on the very top edge, where it meets the washer top. Now you will be able to access the screws which hold the top down. Of course to remove the inner tub, you still have to remove the lid switch, the agitator, agitator drive, the left hand threaded nut below that, the wire connection to the motor, the four tub retaining straps, the tub to pump hose, the four suspension rods, the tub cover and the water level hose. Then you would be able to remove the inner tub and pressure wash out the outside of the inner tub and the inside of the outer tub, if you bring the tub assemble outside. TRY THE CLEANER FIRST !!!!

Kenmore 80 series leaking....plastic tub cracked on the bottom


if you removed the large nut (round with four notches cut in it ) then tub should be free. sometimes these "rust together" on the hub. wd40 and a hammer to knock it free. try rocking the basket to break free. you did remove the tub ring(white plastic part on top), right?

My ge washer whdsr209d model wont agitate


Reach down to the bottom of the tub and pull the agitator straight up and out of the machine. Sometimes this is a bit difficult. If so, slip a belt or rope under the agitator, attach to a 2 x 2 or similar object, and **** it straight up and out of the machine. Now, take the bolt out of the center part with a 1/2 inch wrench. Pull the upside down can shaped nylon part straight up and off. If it does not come off, you can crack it in parts with a hammer and chisel if needed. Try to turn the splined shaft with your fingers. If you can turn it, you are screwed. (need a new transmission) Most likely you will not be able to turn it with your fingers, which is good. That means that all you have to do is replace the agitator drive (sometimes called an air bell coupler) part number WH49X10042, reinstall agitator, and you are ready to go. Cheap fix.

Agitator came apart


Poor grandma, I guess we need to try to get this washer fixed for her. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the your model number as "ATW4470TQ0", there's an excellent exploded view diagram under the "Agitator, Basket and Tub Parts" heading. It sounds like the agitator bolt (item 3) came loose and the whole assembly popped off. This should be a simple fix for you. I hope you are able to resolve your problem by reviewing the illustration. If not, please let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

PS DO NOT overtighten the agitator bolt. This can cause cracks in the agitator and spin problems. Just tighten until it is "snug".
