I removed the center cap from the agitator, which then exposed an inner cap with rubber seal. These were both easily removed with no tools... just a slight pull. Then the center screw was exposed. I removed that "one" screw and pulled the upper agitator assembly off. The old dog ears literally fell right out. I simply ensured that I placed the new dog ears in the same direction as the old, which is not hard to remember because the little housing piece that holds them is molded in the angle of the ears. Putting it back in took the most time because the new ears can easily fall out. In order to overcome this I had to assemble the pieces that had been removed and carefully put them back in place. At that point I had to manage to get the screw back into position and tighten it up. I put the inner cap with seal back in place and then the agitator cap... Done! It's an old machine but works great with a simple repair. The dog ears were so inexpensive that I purchased two sets. Great site!
