Maytag PAV2300 My agitator falls off all the time. First it was just the top part, now it's the whole thing. Can I fix it myself and how, or do I need to call a repairman? Thanks

When you say its the whole thing, is a shaft coming out out with it or is it a two part agitator? if the shaft is coming out its time for a new transmission. if its a two part agitator, replace it

Whirlpool top loader washing machine - agitator does not turn


If it does not drain, I'd check the water pump first (for an obstruction - I found a sock in my pump and that fixed my problem) ... see this video - the top is getting to the WM drive shaft (transmission), but it shows you how to remove the pump first: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc&feature=related

If it does drain ... Is it just the TOP part of the agitator not working, or the whole thing (agitator is in 2 parts)? If just the TOP, you probably just need new "dogs" (agitator dogs). Check this out:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5wIN1J70-Y ... it shows you what to do.

If it is the whole agitator that is stuck, that video will show you how to remove it (remove a single bolt) and you can see if there is an obstruction keep the agitator from moving.

If there's no obstruction or the water pump isn't stuck, you might be looking at a new drive/transmission = expensive. Good luck

Agitator problem


Check and see if it spins freely in both directions. If it does, this means that your "dogs" are worn out in the top agitator. This is an easy fix. You just get the new ones (usually 10$ or less), pull the top cover off the agitator, then pull the center cap off inside of the agitator. Then you just remove the center bolt and pull the whole top agitator off. You will see the 4 plastic dogs right on the top of the agitator.

Noisy/loose agitator


remove the top piece of the agitator. this is a dispenser. then remove a cap that is at the center of the agitator. there is a bolt there that is holding the whole agitator. remove the bolt and you can pull out the whole agitator. be careful in removing, the thing could just separate to pieces and you may have a problem assembling it again.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Agitator not turning very well


The problem mostly is the "Agitator Dogs". These are approximately $5. All you do is snap the top cover off. Revove a plastic cap and o-ring. Use a 7/16" socket to remove the bolt. Pull the top part of the agitator off.

There is a white plastic part that has four little moveable parts. These parts wear out and need replacing. These are the Agitator Dogs.. I found them online for under $5. Service will cost you $100 plus..... they may even say you need a whole Agitator Kit. This is $80+.

I fixed mine myself. took less than 5 minutes once I had the parts.

Won't agitate or spin


Try slamming the lid a little bit to see if the safety switch is stuck or something. It is probably a child safety thing preventing agitation or spin to start. if the switch is not working properly, then the washer will "think" that the lid is still open. It is to prevent some small child that is unsupervised from falling in it and getting killed. Some machines will still agitate even with the lid up and some wont. There is a little small hole somewhere that has a little switch that the lid hits. That could be the problem. If not I don't know of anything else myself to do since im not an appliance man. Just hope that this helps.

Agitator-How do you get it off?


(Roper is actually made by Whirlpool) This is simpler than it sounds, just takes time and a few steps. Do you have a fabric softener dispenser that resides on top of the agitator? This dispenser simply snaps onto the top of the agitator. Some styles use a decorative cap. To remove the dispenser, simply grab it and firmly pull up. There is a cap that covers the bolt or nut that holds the agitator in place. To remove the agitator cap, insert a small flat-head screw driver into the seam between the agitator cap and the upper agitator (the part that moves). Use a twisting or prying action to pop the cap off of the agitator. Sometimes there is a little slot where you can insert the screwdriver. Look for it first. There maybe an internal debris cap under this: Inside the agitator you will see a cap with a raised handle. Simply reach into the agitator and twist the cap while pulling up. This will remove the cap and its o-ring. Removing the agitator: When looking into the agitator assembly, you will notice a single nut in the center of the agitator. Use a socket kit or nut driver to remove this bolt or nut from the agitator stud. Don't use plyers, it'll just mess up the nut. With the bolt removed you should be able to remove the agitator by simply pulling up. Twist back and forth CW & CCW when lifting. Some are a 2 piece design, so pulling up will actually remove either the whole agitator assembly or only half of it. If whole assy comes up and you may need to seperate the two for your new parts. Place the Lower Agitator on the floor and stand on the flat lip. Then Pull up to separate the Upper Agitator (mover) from the Lower Agitator. As far as your parts go I'm not sure where they go without seeing it myself. There is a spline or ratch assembly which causes the agitator to move back and forth. They are usually made of plastic and get worn or break. This might be what you are replacing. It's not clear as to what parts they gave you. Good Luck
