Maytag washer MAV5920eww
« on: December 03, 2011, 03:40:42 PM »

I have a Maytag washer that continues to agitate when it is spinning. As a result, it doesn't spin the water out very well. I have been told the transmission is bad or that the cog that shifts from spin to agitate needs to be replaced. Any ideas?
Does anyone have a service manual for this?


Model MAV5920eww

Thanks.

When I search for your model number this is the service manual I come up with.

Sounds like a transmission problem to me, wonder what the other technicians think about it.

Yep, that's a bad transmission.  The part, 35-6615, is expensive and you need a spanner wrench, 35-2968, and brake tool, 12002012, to install.  Those tools are no longer available from Whirlpool. Might be time for a new washer.
