Remove cap on top of agitator with screw driver or other thin edged tool. It pries off. You will see a cap down inside the agitator tube. Pull out that cap with fingers or pliers. You will see a nut under it. Use ratchet with extender to reach it and unscrew turning counter clock wise. after it is unscrewed, pull the agitator straight up and out of machine. Then you will have to pull the top part of agitator from the bottom part to separate the two pieces of the aitator. Then remove the dogs ( little catches in the one piece) . Replace them into the slots with the new ones and carefully put the two pieces of the agitator back together. Put agitator back into machine and tighten the bolt, snap the cap back on and you are back in business.
