How to remove Matag agitator ?


I have a Maytag topload washing machine. I want to pull the big center agitator to check for debris stuck under it. There is a small softener dispenser at the top that pulls out readily, but its not obvious how the main agitator pulls out. My guess is that its simple if you know how, but I don't.

some if you get at the bottom and pull up even like just reach down with left hand at bottom and than on the other side with right hand on the bottom than pull ? Some yrs ago that is the was they came off . If it hasn't came off for yrs.? it may be hard to get it off . good luck

How to remove Matag agitator ?


You may have to pop off the top part of the agitator that holds the fabric softener dispenser. There is a bolt under that cap.

Also some older models have a bolt in the side of the agitator that locks it to the shaft.

What is the washer model number?

The service manual for my Maytag topload washer illustrates removal of the dispenser housing and dispenser cup on top of the agitator first. Then remove a single agitator retaining screw that is under the two dispenser units. The agitator should then be free to lift out of the washer.


Good luck!

Yep, there it is. A screw down the center.
Remove the screw and the agitator came right out.

Thank you
