    Question Maytag Performa washer (top loader) - agitator

    I have a Maytag Performa top loading washer. During the wash cycle the upper agitator floats to the top and therefore is not doing its job to clean the clothes. When I remove the fabric softener cup, there is no bolt or place for a bolt. The upper agitator lifts right off of the "post" that is connected to the base. The bottom/base of the agitator seems to be working fine with the bolt in place. My guess is that I need to replace the upper agitator. All the videos I have seen refer to a bolt to keep the upper agitator in place. However, the 10+ years I have owned this appliance, I do not remember there being a bolt for the upper piece. I just need some confirmation on what needs to be replaced and how. Thanks!!

    This would depend on the model#.

    The bolt normally runs through the upper and lower sections, see link above.
