Maytag Performa no longer performas
« on: December 02, 2010, 05:35:11 PM »
My wifes washer no longer works in the agitate cycle. It makes an awful noise but does not move however it does work fine in spin cycle. I looked through some other posts on this sight and thought it might be the dogs so I took apart the agitator assembly.    

First thing I noticed was that the top of the agitator was full of gray grease, is this normal? Seems strange because that area is not sealed off from water. I couldnt get the clutch/dog assembly out of the top agitator but it did seem to be working. Does this mean my transmission is bad??

Model PAVT-234AWW
