I wasn't too impressed with Maytag's LoadSensor agitator because it seemed weak although, (dual-action). But, when I installed it in my A712, the washing action was incredible. The Dependable Drive (LONG STROKE) transmission makes the LoadSensor agitator AWESOME!!! Check out my videos...

The auger isn't doing anything on that small load.  Fill it up with a BobLoad™!  :-)

I actually have a Maytag Load Sensor agitator too, and I’ve used it on my A810 and my A606. The load sensor seems to wash small loads pretty well, and washes large items like comforters well too

My Maytag Atlantis has that auger agitator. I think I'm gonna miss it if I ever get those new Speed Queens out of my garage and into my laundry room. Like with my stomach, I'm a perpetual "over-loader".

You're right it does, and for the LoadSensor agitator base to be almost an INCH smaller than the Power-fins, it's still able to MOVE the entire load as well as it does. That's why I'm impressed with it now. I'll be have some fun with until I get my new agitator. Here are some BobLoad videos...WASH_RINSE & SPIN

probably one of the better designs for an auger set up....no dogs to wear out

a switch added to the timer motor would fix that...

Maytag Load-Sensor agitator

combo52's profile picture

This was by far the best agitator Maytag ever used in their DC Washers.

 

Reply #10 does a good job showing how well this agitator can turn over a good sized load, if you install a 50 cycle motor pulley and belts then you really have a great performing agitation.

 

Reply #11, this is only a 19 gallon wash tub, not sure how you are figuring 23 gallons.

 

Reply # 12 is a good video of the washer draining while forcing the dirty lint laden water over the top of the wash basket over and over again through the clean clothing, Maytag even stated in their sales literature how much cleaner and brighter your clothing would be when they started selling the Norge style washers because they did not do this nearly as much because of a better hole pattern in the wash tub, faster pump-out along with a slower spin acceleration so your clean clothing did not turn into a scum and lint filter.

fewer parts, less break-downs...love to learn how to add a switch to the timer motor...it really does and the 50 cycle motor pulley and belts would enhance the agitation so, you may be able to add more clothes for even bigger loads
...I used a GALLON container filled her to each LOAD SIZE water level---SMALL: 8 1/2 gallons---MEDIUM: 11 7/8 gallons---LARGE: 15 3/4 gallons and EX LARGE: 19 1/2 gallons...cont' the bottom of the Power-fin agitator's lint filter top/upper SLOT: 20 gallons...the TOP row of tub holes: 21 gallons...3/8" from the tip of the Power-fin's RIB-VANE: 22 gallons and the bottom of tub RIM is 23 gallons...I love the swirl-away spins, I wish there was some way I could increase the force of water SPRAYS in my A712 to remove more dirty lint laden water down the drain

It would be more awesome if you filled up the tub ALL THE WAY!!!!Not enough water to make good use of that agitator.Only the base blades are working.The auger is doing NOTHING.

I immediately add a switch to the timer motor. That way I can watch and customize for every single load I wash

Post# 1036721 , Reply# 22   6/29/2019 at 20:02 by scrubflex (bronx, new york)        

I would love to customize my wash cycles...everyone knows that Kenmore's dual action agitator that have the 20 degree 'undercut' spiral vane are the best ever designed. But, Maytag Atlantis MAV9750AWW HydroFlex agitator have a 'double' spiral vane which is next in line. I think I'll get a HydroFlex spiral vane for my LoadSensor.
