Not sure what brand of machine you have but most have a plastic cap on top of the agitator with a bolt under it. remove the bolt and the agitator should come right out.

Machine not spinning but, water is draining. What can be the problem?


I found a pillowcase wrapped around the shaft of a calypso washer. I had to remove the agitator to get it out. Pop the nutation tower off and remove the upper agitator. f8d7c59.jpgLook in the holes for clothing. Raise up the tub to release the article. Do not attempt to remove the inner agitator.9323d88.jpg I bet you have something similar an object between the tubs. I wrote a tip about it with pictures. The water will drain because the pump has its own motor.95e6002.jpgSERVICE MANUAL

My Maytag Ensignia washer is not spinning well. It bangs side to side with even the smallest loads. It seems like something is loose. Is this something I can fix myself or do I need a repair mans help....


Try leveling the washer... If the washer is level, then don't wrap the clothes around the agitator...drop the clothes straight in, on top of each other evenly around the agitator. The Ensignia washer has a Dual action agitator... That means the clothes roll over them selves, instead of moving side to side, as with a traditional agitator. wrapping the clothes around the agitator will cause the load to be un balanced and then cause the "banging" noise... this should take care of the problem...

Agitator making clicking noise when washing clothes; clothes wrapping around agitator


Hi,
If this a whirlpool brand washer, there are sone parts bad in the agitator it's self. These parts are called dogs and they make the agitator rachet so that the top half only goes one direction. Does this sound like what you are experiencing? If so, let me know and I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Laundry is trapped under the base of the agitator.


Im not very familiar with that type of top loadign washer,,, but on most agitators there is a bolt that runs down the center of the agitator, connecting it to the transmission/gearbox. Usually there is a cap, or softner dispenser that can be pulled off, revealing this bolt.
