How do I remove the agitator? I can't find any screws or dust cap.
Answer Hello Andrew. There is a set screw on the side of the agitator that you remove to lift the agitator 22001821 out of the tub assembly.
I have realized thehex screw holds the agitator to to shaft. This has worn down and needs replacement. I wanted to know if the inside of the agitator is grooved to match the shaft. These also may be worn so the entire agitator will have to be replaced. So the agitator would need both perfect grooves and new, longer set screw?
Answer Steve, You're on track. Yes the agitator does have internal splines on the bottom, that match and interlace with the splines of the metal agitator shaft, You shouldn't need another bolt, but once you have the agitator out, and check the splines , if they are rounded off or stripped flat, you will need a new agitator. Thanks and Good Luck
The Agitator is barely moving in my Maytag washer.
Answer Hello Tracy. Remove the agitator 22001821 and make sure the splines inside it are good. Also check and make sure the belts on the washer are good. Lean the washer back and support it so it does not fall. Check and make sure the belts 12112425 are not burnt or cracked on the unit. Hope this helps.
I can find agitator dogs but can't find these restraining clips anywhere. Do you have any? Thank you!
Answer Hello Francie. Sorry, but the model number you provided, does not use dogs. You will need to order the agitator assembly 22001821. The manufacture does not sell the inside of the agitator. Hope this helps.
