Similar problem as everyone else with my agitator not working. I removed the hex screw and pulled off the agitator. without realizing that the agitator once had grove and spines I thought that the set screw needed to be set into the metal drive shaft. I drilled a hole into the side of the shaft so that the hex screw would hold the agitator in place and keep it from coming off. now the agitator does not agitate! lol Now what can I do to save the beast? Can i still install a new agitator, but what should I do with the hole that I bored into the shaft. Macgyver

Jim for Model Number maytag lat1916aae agitator

ANSWER Jim, You could repalce the agitator shaft 6-2168983 It's no that hard a task, just messy, if you're not careful. If your serial number starts with the number 22 or higher,it'e even easier, takes about 5 or 10 minutes either way. As long as you didn't damage the splines or set screw you may be able to get by with the original agotator 22001821. Good Luck and Thanks
