So Easy a Female can Do IT. Lifted the cap on the top agitator with screwdriver and removed. Using 11mm socket with extension, removed the center screw to detach agitator from spindle. Lifted straight up to removed complete agitator assembly. Sat it on floor and with both feet holding the lower half, pulled the auger off of agitator. Cleaned all parts with water and a brush making sure not to remove any gear grease. Assembled new cogs on auger in same direction as broke cogs. Installed agitator bottom, lining up spindle groooves in machine first. Then lowered the auger with cam and cogs held together to keep alighment and inserted center screw and tightened auger and agitator. Replaced the plastic top cap and walla!
