Maytag LAT2301AAE Washer: The auger separates from the agitator. The auger then "floats" and does don't agitate back and forth. It appears the "teeth" inside the auger are worn out. ...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number.
Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.
Good luck,

Aggetator not moving during wash cycle, why


Does the agitator have an auger at the top, if so you will need to replace the agitator dogs in the auger section. Part #80040 If no auger is present you probably have a broken motor coupler.Part #285753A

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.

Whirlpool Quiet Wash II center pole doesn't spin.


No. This is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs. The upper portion of the agitator (called the auger) has a cam assembly with small agitator dogs that act as a clutching mechanism to drive the auger during the wash cycle. They wear out over time and need to periodically be replaced. The following link explains what they are and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase replacements at appliancepartspros.com for about $5. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam replacement kit which includes the dogs, cam, seals and washers.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I have a whirlpool washer and the upper agitator (the one that is supposed to move the clothes down) is not working. What shall I do?


You need to replace the agitator dogs. Yes, there is such a thing. This is a very simple repair that should take 30 minutes or less. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The dogs are located under the Auger (thats the top portion of the agitator). They are plastic teeth that act as a clutching mechanism for driving the auger during the wash cycle. Over time they simply wear out. The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase replacements at appliancepartspros.com for about $5.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

What is the purpose of the washer and where does it go on the Oster kitchen Center food grinder or pasta maker? I keep them both in the same box and I'm not sure which one the washers go to. Thanks


The purpose of this washer is to reduce the friction between the auger and the body of the grinder head. During the grinding process the auger is pushing food/meat forward to the disc and respectively reacting itsef backward. So, the washer goes over the back shaft of the auger as a surface of the contact with the body. You have to put it over this shaft before assembing the auger with the head body. The pasta maker attachment and the grinder both have identical augers.

My whirlpool top loader won't agitate.


Ok, sorry it took so long to write.  You listed the washer as a Calypso, but it didnt look righ, so did some investigative work for you.  What your describing I believe, is that the agitator top half (or the auger as well them) is sitting still and the bottom half if moving.  During the wash cycle, the top half is just sitting still.  If this is wrong, please let me know.  If this is right, you have a sort of simple fix.  Remove the top cap of the auger, pry gently between the cap and the agitator, the plastic cap will come off.  When you remove the cap, you will see another cap (sometimes you do, sometimes you dont) it will be white or dirty clear in color if its there.  You can put your finger on the lips and lift it straight off.  Then you will see a cap with a bolt in the center.  Remove this bolt (7/16" with long extension).  the agitator dogs (Sears part #387091) 387091.jpg.  You should see these under that last cap tha had the bolt in it.  Remove the auger (just slide it up and off), remove the dog holding cap.  Remove the dogs, but be sure you remember the way they go back in.  Next is the tricky part.  Take the cap upside-down, and place it back in the auger.  Quickly turn it back over, making sure the ag dogs dont fall out of position (you will be hating me the first couple time, just keep at it), then, with a long pair of needle nose, place the bolt you removed back in the hole.  Take your extension with socket, hold the bolt firmly, and slide the auger back on to the top of the agitator.  Make sure the locks and stuff fit right between the two.  Tighten the bolt (just snug, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN, you will split the cap).  If all goes well and right, you should be able to roll the auger one way and not the other.  If you need any further help, or need someone to yell at when the dogs keep falling out, give me a shout, and we'll help you along.  Good Luck!!!!!     Jim
