Popped agitator cap with screwdriver, used socket + extension to remove assembly locking bolt. Pulled entire agiataor out and pulled off top unit. Pieces of pawls fell out so replacement pieces needed were obvious. I ordered the entire replacement pawl unit which came in 5 days (including weekend). Reassembly was pretty obvious following included diagram. Put the agitator unit back in and secured with assembly bolt. Tested by hand and my wife put in a load while thanking me profusely. Washer may not last for another 12 years, but it was worth the $20 just to not have to go shopping for a replacement yet!
