How to Repair a Maytag Bravos Washing Machine That Does Not Agitate Properly – Drum Hub Replacement

Washing Machine Hub Kits:
This Maytag washing machine repair video covers the process of replacing a wash basket hub. Symptoms of a failed wash basket hub include:
Washing machine not agitating correctly.
Loud grinding noise during the agitation cycle.
Reduced wash drum spin speeds.
Clothes are still saturated after all wash cycles have completed.

The washing machine repair process covered in this video will be the same or similar to many other models. Whirlpool, Kenmore, LG, GE, and others will have a similar washing machine hub that helps with both spin and agitation cycles. When the clothes drum on a Maytag washing machine will not spin or agitate properly, a likely cause could be that the drub hub assembly has stripped out. Sometimes, the washing machine drum will move but the motion will be noticeably reduced. The plastic hub assembly sets down atop a metal shaft and the splined “teeth” can strip out causing the washing machine drum not to spin or agitate. the video tutorial shown below outlines the process of repairing a Maytag washing machine that will not spin or agitate properly. Sometimes, the washing machine wash plate will also need to be replaced.
