How do I get the agitator off?
ANSWER Hello Cliff. Here are the steps to removing the agitator on your Maytag washer. Pop the lid off the top of the agitator with your screwdriver. Pull the fabric softener dispenser off the top if you have a Maytag Atlantis or Performa. You will see a bolt underneath.
Grab the bottom of the agitator to hold it still. Use your ratchet wrench and socket to loosen the bolt.
Pull up on the agitator to remove it. If it sticks, rock it from side to side as you pull it up. Hope this helps..
