Cool Agitator Not Working
Model Number: LAT9635AAE   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Have a Maytag Top Load Washer the Agitator is not moving, but the drum spins freely and spin cycle works fine.

Checked delicate and Perm Press and results are same.

Belt appeared to be worn and slightly glazed so replaced both belts no change.

If I hold lid up and trip swirch with blade of putty knife the agitator appears to jerk slightly but no constant movement.

Lower pulley turns freely.

What else can I check, out of work and can't afford a $69.00 service call and $16.00 per 1/4 hour repair rate.

There should be a 1/4 inch screw on the side of the agitator. Remove this screw and pull the agitator. Run it in wash mode and check if the tranny spindle turns back and forth, post results.

Then, slip a rope under the agitator and pry out the agitator with a board.

If the motor turns the tranny pulley in the agitate direction (opposite to spin: should check manually) and the tranny spindle in the tub does not move=bad tranny.

What do you mean by "Bad Tranny"? Is that the transmission or a different part under the agitator? Mine doesn't move either. It just stopped working. Old Maytag LA512. Everything else works except the agitator. This old posting is exactly like my problem. Checked belts and they are not broken. Could they just be old? I don't have the money to buy a new one right now and repair people are very expensive.

Remove the agitator, and turn the transmission pulley, one way, the spin basket will spin, the other way, the transmission spindle should go back and forth. If not, you have a bad transmission.

Red face Had to buy new washer

I could not see spending money to repair such an old washer and not have it fix the problem. Thank you for replying though.
