The old lint filter was worn, and would "pop up" so that clothes weren't being moved about during the wash and rinse cycles. If I didn't frequently push it down again, it would fly off during a spin cycle. Dangerous!

I simply lifted the lint filter and its cap off, pressed the new agitator cap onto the new lint filter and put the assemblage into place. No tools needed at all. A $50 dollar repair saved me from replacing my washer/dryer! I'm very pleased.
