I recently got a Maytag bravos xl for $100 knowing it needed some repair. Both the washer plate and the agitator shaft splines were stripped. No other problems with the machine. I replaced the plate but it’s still spinning freely separate from the basket. With my $100 investment, is it worth it to replace the stripped shaft myself? Also how difficult is it to do. I’m a carpenter by trade so I’m somewhat handy but certainly no mechanic. Picture is the stripped shaft

Its up to you if you want to buy a new transmission. Some folks do everything they can to fix it, money being no object, some prefer to buy a new washer.

Here's the transmission for your model you can order:
Transmission W11455453


Its IN-STOCK here:

This video shows you how to replace it:


Let us know how it goes.

I have the exact same issue on a 2 year old washer. The agitator isnt as bad as the splines. :(
