First take Fabric Softener Dispenser and cap off Agitator, locate nut, unscrew and wiggle up and out. Agitator Repair Kit comes with the cam dogs and assembly that you put together. (They will only fit one way) I opted to get the Upper Agitator as well since the old one had frayed edges. It is easier to turn over the Upper Agitator and place the assembled Repair Kit inside it then turn over and replace in original position. Using old nut, screw to the lower agitator. Replace cap and Fabric Softener Dispenser.
