To get the old agitator off I first used two pieces of laundry line rope to hook under the fins of the agitator on each side. Next I laid a 5 foot long 2 X 4 across the top and tied the ropes on. I filled the washer with 5 or 6 inches of extremely hot water to help loosen everything up and used leverage to pop the old agitator off. After that I used a socket set to remove the bolt from the top of the agitator coupling and took it out. I then put the new coupling in, replaced the bolt and lined up the agitator and slid it back on until it clicked and locked into place. The washer works great.
