New Maytag Agitator Bolt Wonít Loosen
Model Number: mvwb765fw1 Brand:
Less than 1 year
Hi - New here, thanks for listening/reading.
I have a new Maytag mvwb765fw1 washer with an agitator auger. Itís about a month old. The root of my problem is we hate the agitator and I feel like itís ruining our clothes from being too rough on them. That being said, I found a wash plate without the auger agitator on it from a similar washer. Iím pretty sure it will fit on the spline drive if I can get this agitator off. Iíve watched a ton of videos and it seems easy to remove. Unfortunately, I canít get the bolt out. Iíve tried a long ratchet and it wonít budge. I even tried a light electric impact wrench and no dice. It doesnít seem to be a left hand thread, meaning it should be normal lefty loosy. The replacement bolt does have lock tight but that shouldnít keep it from breaking free. Are the new washers more complicated? Iím at my wits end trying to get it loose but also donít want to break anything. Itís only a month old so It canít be corrosion.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
