How to remove the agitator from an older model Maytag top-loading washer
The older Maytag's don't have that 1/4" hex screw in the side of the agitator holding it on. They use a rubber o-ring style band around the agitator shaft that the agitator snaps down onto, it can be very difficult to remove the agitator on these machines without the use of a strap under the agitator looped over a 2x4 to pop the agitator off or the use of the "Agitamer Tool".
