My husband did the repairs. He took the cap off from the top of the agitator, removed it with a socket, and then removed the bottom portion. He was able to attach the new part with the agitator completely removed from the machine and then piece it all back together. The entire process took a little over 30 minutes. Well worth the $43 in parts!! Saved us from buying a whole new machine! And the machine is 15 years old- works like new again!!!
