You have chosen a difficult do-it-yourself project but I believe you are almost there. The image below will show how to remove the tub assembly and then separate the outer tub from the transmission assembly.

From what you've done so far I think the next step will be to remove the suspension springs.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Q:

What is wrong with a Maytag model MAV8557AWQ washer that will spin but won't agitate?

A:

You don't provide many details about what is happening in agitation except that it is not agitating.

If the washer spins okay then the lid switch and motor will be okay and the most likely cause of the washer not agitating is a bad transmission.

One thing to try first is to remove the belt from around the motor pulley and see if the motor will run in the agitation cycle. You can access the belt by tipping the washer back. The belt is on the bottom of the washer and can be accessed by tilting the front of the washer up. The belt has a loose fit and is easily removed.

If the motor runs with the belt off then most likely the transmission is locked up and will need to be replaced.

If the motor doesn't run in agitation but it does run in the spin cycle then the timer is most likely bad and will have to be replaced.

The image below contains the instructions for raising the top and removing the front panel. Depending on what happens when you remove the belt you may need to access the motor.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem but if you need any additional help then submit another question with any additional details for further assistance with this problem.
