Like most said, I had to pull very hard to separate the clothes mover (auger) from the agitator. I tried to remove the bolt from the center column, but it didn't fall out immediately so I figured I would just take it out after I seperated the two peices. BIG MISTAKE! When the clothes mover finally popped off with a great deal of force, the bolt and rubber washer went flying. And I was in the laundry room with clothes everywhere. So it took me about 20-30 minutes going through all the clothes in the room to find the bolt. So try a little harder than I did to romove the bolt before you seperate the the two main pieces. Other than that, it was a very simple repair. You just need to have the right tool - a hex-shaped socket on an extension arm to reach into the center column and loosen the bolt after getting to it.
