Default Maytag PAV2300AWW auger not spinning
Model Number: PAV2300AWW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com

I ahve been researching this problem on this site and I know what the problem is but not completely convinced why.
The agitator is a 3 peice system with the bottom peice bolting to the drum, the middle peice slidding down and snapping(for lack of a better term) down onto the bottom peice and the top peice being the softener dispencer.
What happened was a couple of weeks ago I was cleaning the washer and tried to pull the softener dispencer off and pulled the auger loose from the base, now every time I or my wife does a large load of laundry the auger pops loose and floats without turning. I know I need to replace the middle section but I am not sure if there is a clip that holds this peice secure or just tension holds it down to the base. Looks to me like it's held down by tension only.

Any help greatly appreciated, Ray

Upon further inspection it looks like the center section was inadvertantly pulled apart and now needs replaced. Please let me know what you think.

Smile Auger Replacement On Maytag PAV2300AWW

I know this is an answer to an old post but maybe it will help someone else. The auger post is held to the base by a bolt that goes through the bottom center of the post. When you pulled on the top you pulled the post from the base. The post is made of a hard plastic and pulling on it can cause it to pull off the bolt. When you order a new one it will come with 8 pieces.
1. A round clear plastic shoulder ring
2. The outside post housing
3. The center insert that goes down through the housing
4. A piece that looks similar to a funnel (for lack a better word)
5. 4 small black tubular shaped pieces

The outside auger housing has a large end and a smaller end. The shaft that goes into the outside casing has a plastic ring on one end and nothing on the other. For easier directions we'll call the ring end #1 and the other end #2. Slip the #2 end inside shaft through the clear plastic shoulder ring up till it comes to rest under the ring on the shaft, #1. If you look closely at the clear plastic ring you will notice how it is beveled on one side as is the ring that goes around the shaft. Match the two up so they sit snugly together. Now take that shaft and slip it in the outer housing from the large end with #2 end going in first. Let it go all the way to the bottom of the outside housing. Now look down through the large end of the assembly you're holding and you will notice that there are 4 slots going around the ring. The 4 small black tubular shaped pieces go into the slots, 1 in each. That allows the inside shaft to turn one way but locks it going the other. If it does not do that then you don't have them in correctly. After everything is in place now as described and works properly, then set it down somewhere standing up for now. Open the lid to the washer and look at the base. There is a bolt in the center of it. Remove the bolt if you have not already done that. Now take the auger post and place it down over the base. Turn it gently till it locks onto the base. The bolt you took out now goes back in to the base through the center of the auger post. You may need a magnet to get it started, or something to line it up as it's a long way down there to the hole. Tighten the bolt down but not like a gorilla. REMEMBER IT'S ONLY PLASTIC!! Okay, now the piece that looks like the funnel sits down inside the center, narrow end first going into the shaft. If you haven't ordered the new fabric softener dispenser, then you can use the old one. It snaps down over the new housing. You will have to push down on it pretty hard to snap it into place. IF YOU HAVE TO PULL IT BACK APART MAKE SURE YOU HOLD THE BASE OF THE AUGER POST WHEN PULLING THE TOP TO TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF THE BASE WHERE IT IS BOLTED! You should be able to now move the auger in one direction but it should lock in the other. Turn on the machine to test it the auger should only move on way. Counter clockwise to pull the closes down into the machine. I'm not an appliance repair man. I just have the same machine and have had to replace the auger post. I try to do as much as I can to save on repair bills. Parts and shipping cost me $89.76 from Lowe's versus just under $300.00 for repair man to come out and replace it! I hope this will help some one in the future.
