Maytag Washer Agitator Stop Ring #15494
Used in all E, J, and N Series Wringers (and some older automatics)

Sorry, I just sold the last of these I had. You'll often find them posted on Ebay, though. Click HERE to search for them there.

 Maytag #015494 Washer Agitator Rubber Stop Ring

Penny shown for size comparison but not included, sorry! 


If you own one of these great old vintage Maytag wringer washers and its agitator won't stay on, but floats off in the wash, I have good news! The fix is easy, and although they're getting tough to find, you'll still a few of these on Ebay (these were also used in older Maytag automatics).


Called a 'stop ring', this little rubber ring slips into the groove in the agitate shaft, and holds it down onto the shaft while in use. It's a good idea to keep an extra one on hand if you have one of these terrific old machines. Note: some online parts companies list these but don't actually have any in stock, so beware!


To replace, just lift the agitator straight off, and pry off the old ring - if there's anything left of it - with a small screwdriver. Slip the new ring down over the shaft splines until it drops into the groove. Lubricate the shaft and ring well with Vaseline to make sure you can get the agitator off when you need to, and you're done! 'Quick and easy.


Note: I recommend both keeping the shaft greased, and leaving the agitator off in these washers when not in use. When the shaft rusts a bit, these agitators can become impossible to remove without breaking! 

Please contact me if you have any questions on these little rubber rings.
